Outlaw Saint came by KFAI this past Wednesday to play a raunchy rock’n’roll set on “Live From Studio Five!” The five-piece played tunes inspired by Guns’n’Roses, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, and Velvet Revolver, and chatted with hosts Doug the Thug, Dewglass, and Cher Dial about how the main priority at an Outlaw Saint show is basically just having a good time.
“Outlaw Saint is all about getting out there and putting on the best show that we can, man,” explained lead singer and songwriter Tank. “It’s all about releasing aggression, releasing tension in a positive manner. It’s all about having a good time.”
In addition to Tank, Outlaw Saint consists of Dave and Ed on guitar, with Hardy on drums, and Ricky filling in on the bass. They played songs like “Raise Some Hell,” “Writing’s on the Wall,” and “Cell Number 9,” along with a couple covers like the Beatles’ “Come Together” and Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever,” but with their own unique twist.
Outlaw Saint has a bunch of shows coming up. On March 15, they’re playing at the Crooked Pint Ale House in downtown Minneapolis, and on March 22 they’ll be at Lily’s Bar & Grill in Big Lake, Minnesota. Then on April 23, Outlaw Saint will hit POV’s 65 in Spring Lake Park, Minnesota, so be sure to hit those up if you pick up what the band is putting down.
And if you want to keep up with Outlaw Saint in the digital world, head over to their homepage, not to mention the many other places they’ve left their collective digital footprint: Facebook, MySpace, Reverb Nation, SoundClick, and YouTube.
