Nothing More Performs Live at WGRD Studios – ‘I’ll Be Okay’ and ‘This is the Time’

Nothing More is a great band from Texas (my home state), and they came through town on Monday as one of the openers for the Chevelle show at The Orbit Room.  They also stopped by the station to meet some winners and play a couple songs for us in their special "acoustic" format.

These guys do their acoustic thing a bit different from most.

Steel Panther Rocks ‘Party Like Tomorrow Is the End of the World’ Acoustic [Video]

This was documented in the music video for 'Party Like Tomorrow Is the End of the World,' so to praise Steel Panther further, we present to you this exclusive acoustic performance of the song.

Enjoy the next four minutes of your life.

Middle Class Rut was the second band to play during the Chevelle concert on Monday night, with Nothing More opening the show.  

These two dudes jumped on stage and rocked with a lot of energy, with a huge sound for two guys being the only ones up there. They had some backing tracks going to fill things out, but they weren't playing too loud.

Nothing More Rocked The Orbit Room with Chevelle [Videos/Photos]

Nothing More is a great band from Texas, and right now they're on tour with Chevelle and Middle Class Rut.  

The guys stopped by the 'GRD studios Monday before their show at The Orbit Room to play for a few WGRD Freeloaders Club winners and the staff, and then joined Jackie on the air to talk about the show.

Their "acoustic" setup is a bit different from most, as they run everything through a computer using Ableton Live to run effects and patch changes. They play the songs live, but the computer controls the sounds.  It's pretty bad ass, actually, and the audio I recorded is fantastic!
