Stones Throw

George's Union Station, 2419 N. Union Blvd., 227-7168 Thursday, June 28, 8 p.m. $5, 21-plus; $10, under 21.

Performing in a scene largely dominated by metal bands can be challenging at times, say the members of Stones Throw, a self-described modern grunge band.

"Most people are surprised at our sound," says vocalist-guitarist Tom Stone. "They don't know a band like ours exists."

Their music certainly is hard and energetic, and peppered with moments of intensity. But there's also a lyrical aspect you won't find in your average metal band.

"We're not in your face all night," says drummer Brian Popham. "You can sit back, talk and enjoy a song ... then we'll punch you in the face again."

Stones Throw's unique sound landed it in last year's regional finals of Bodog Battle, a competition for a chance at a recording contract with Bodog Music. That success spurned further successes: Stones Throw is now one of the Elite 13 bands playing in George's Union Station's and 94.3 KILO-FM's weekly, summer-long Locals Rule lineup.

Now the guys just say they want potential fans to know they're here.

"If people see us once," says guitarist Joel Malick, "they always come back for more."
