Indie Week Report Card: The Ascot Royals @ Rivoli 80%

By: Erin Fahy October 29, 2013

The Ascot Royals

Sound 4/5

One of my faves; The Ascot Royals are layered guitar rock at its finest, amazing vocals and amazing songs. They are engineered to make me dance.

Performance 5/5

They were on at 2 am but it felt like 11 pm, high energy and lots of fun. Their cover of Queen’s “Fat Bottom Girls” I attribute to my sore knees the next day. Their set was perfect.

Professionalism 4/5

Considering they were on so late and wasn’t a lot of hands to help set up, they set up in a timely manner and tore down quickly.

Aesthetic 3/5

Casual rock and roll, looked like they’d been on stage their entire lives. Big hair also helps.

Authenticity 4/5

The Ascot Royals are one of those bands who obviously love what they do and they love performing. They had a blast on stage and had the audience (especially yours truly) moving and grooving.

Total: 20/25

Final Grade: 80%
