Not many bands do the “rock ‘n’ roll” thing anymore. Countless subgenres like hard rock, pop rock, prog, blues rock, rock metal or, the less popular, rock lobster make the blanket term appear to be the exclusive realm of middle-aged bar bands playing Stones covers. That’s what is so energizing about NYC’s TSI, a band who has revived the term with an original, fast-paced, radio-unfriendly, balls-to-the-wall style. They’ll be celebrating the release of their new album, Hanging By A Thread, Feb. 22 at Santos Party House in NYC. myspace.com/tsiband.
