Dallas Observer: This Weeks Obsession

circles.jpg​As I was standing in the photo pit of the Murder City Devils' stage the Friday evening of Fun Fun Fun Fest, a band started playing on the other side of the large, divided stage. I couldn’t see them, as I was 40 yards to the band’s right, literally with my elbows on the unused stage but, boy howdy, could I ever hear the act kicking things off.

Who was the band that blew me away? It was Chicago’s Russian Circles. In the span of 40 minutes, their pulverizing, rhythmic and ravaging set was made all the more intense by the fact that I could only hear the raging riffs and the percussive propulsion. My view of the enraptured, fist-waving fans in front of the stage, backdropped by the always majestic Austin skyline, proved to be the perfect live-action visual accompaniment to the explosive tunes.

Of course, after looking the band’s history up when I got back to the hotel, I was a combination of embarrassed and excited. As it turns out, Brian Cook, Mike Sullivan and Dave Turncrantz have been a big deal to many people for a few years now. How had I missed out on them? While I pondered that thought, I realized I had multiple albums of Russian Circles material to unearth and that was enough to get over my easily bruised music-geek ego.
