Los Angeles blues-infused rock act, RIVAL SONS announced a number of dates for shows taking place in and around Canadian Music Week and SXSW. Playing showcases during these two highly influential festivals has helped break new bands and sent others onto greater heights. To say that these shows are important is an understatement, but RIVAL SONS, already having performed in front of major audiences at the Indy 500, Voodoo Music Experience and HMV Next Big Thing festival, are excited to take their crowd pleasing show to the music-hungry fans and industry figures that will populate the clubs of Toronto, Canada and Austin, TX this month.
In between their festival dates, RIVAL SONS will also play two House of Blues shows in the Midwest rock strongholds of Cleveland, OH and Chicago, IL. Over the course of this trek, the band will be making crowds come alive as they have while playing alongside the likes of AC/DC, KID ROCK & GENE SIMMONS. No matter where the band has played, whether it be in an arena filled with thousands of US soldiers or the small, yet packed rooms of the CMJ Music Marathon, they have impressed many with their high energy mix of blues, soul and raucous rock & roll. Go see the band on their upcoming dates:
