Rocket Science @ Lee's Palace - March 2nd 2000

Rocket Science @ Lee's Palace
Thursday March 2nd, 2000
By: Tim Melton
Band: Rocket Science
Hometown: Toronto, ON
Venue: Lee's Palace
Date: March 2nd, 2000
Composition: Rocket Science kick out a sound that is more Prog than Punk, and more Pop than Punk. The band are incredibly well-gifted musicians and sound like a pop version of Primus-minus the bizzaro humour.

Achievement of Rock 'n' Roll Expectations
80-100: Band exceeds skill and knowledge expectations. Rocked us so hard we peed our pants.
70-79: Band achieves required skills and knowledge. Meets rock 'n' roll standard.
60-69: Demonstrates some skills. Approaches rock 'n' roll standard.
50-59: Band demonstrates some required skills and knowledge in a limited way.
Below 50: Band has not demonstrated required skills or knowledge.

Grade: 95

World Domination Status:
Progressing well towards world domination
Progressing with some difficulty towards world domination
No chance in hell for world domination

Progressing well towards world domination

Rocket Science have got what it takes to blend smart, complicated arrangements with cool, melodic vocals. To be progressive and not be annoying can be a tough thing to do, but Rocket Science seem to have it down to an artform. RS also have above average musicianship in their corner.

Strengths/ Weaknesses/ Next Step:
The band does not rely on an image to get their point across and it shows that they spent a lot more time practicing than they did on shopping for trousers. Rocket Science have the skill needed to be launched into the big leagues and their powerful stage show is a force to be rekoned with.

Sound: E
Composition: E
Songs: E

Strengths/ Weaknesses/ Next Step:
Rocket Science bounce off each other well musically and some amazing bass-drum-guitar interplay makes for an intense show. The bassist and drummer share lead vocal duties and both have good vocal abilities. The band has monolith-sized riffs that came close to leveling Lee's Palace.

Cool Equipment: E

Strengths/ Weaknesses/ Next Step:
The band's skill and songs overrule their fashion sense and prove that R 'n' R isn't a fashion show. The audience found the band's blend of many different styles pleasing to the ears and gave them the kudos they deserved.
