THOUGHTS: The Grizzled Mighty is a blues/garage rock duo from Seattle. With a female (Lupe Flores) on drums, and a male (Ryan Granger) on guitar and vocals, obvious comparisons to The White Stripes comes to mind, but I think it’d be a bit of a stretch to make that comparison really stick. Their performance was energetic and you could tell that they were happy to be opening for Reignwolf, but the music sounded both derivative and unpolished. Jack and Meg White set the bar relatively high, so bands trying emulate the formula should bring a little something extra to set themselves apart. Don’t get me wrong … I enjoyed watching their performance (I was particularly enamored with Lupe on the drums, simultaneously smiling and growling while pounding the drums) and their music isn’t bad, but I was expecting a little something extra.
