Six Bullet Roulette rocked hard Saturday night at The Depot for their show with Athens, TX rock band Broken Silence. One thing is for sure, local radio station MyRock 96.5 has continuously sponsored great rock shows since the station first hit airwaves five years ago.
Chad Lindsey, the on-air personality for Payne Radio Group’s MyRock and K95.5, emceed for the evening, introducing Broken Silence to the patrons of The Depot, who were steadily coming through the door. The Athens-based four-piece performed songs off of their début EP, Home, which is said to be the beginning of a concept album that shares the struggles of maintaining a positive outlook on life despite life’s many challenges.
Six Bullet Roulette first met Broken Silence through the Athens band’s manager last September, who asked Six Bullet Roulette to perform with them and a band from Tyler, TX called Victims of Sanity.
After the successful out-of-town performance, Six Bullet Roulette returned the favor and invited their hosts to perform in Paris for Saturday night’s show at The Depot.
While rock shows are normally pretty interactive with the crowd, it took a few songs for the crowd to really open up and embrace the out-of-town rock band. After a very well-received cover of My Hero by Foo Fighters and an impromptu instrumental of a Fiona Apple song, Broken Silence had made their mark on The Depot, guaranteeing a return visit to Paris.
With the crowd growing slightly larger, Chad Lindsey returned to the stage to introduce one of Paris’ favorite rock bands: Six Bullet Roulette. The band, which has started receiving considerable airplay on MyRock 96.5 with the songs Indestructible and Before I Ever Knew, brought one of their heaviest sets of songs to The Depot, reminding the audience of a once large and quite prevalent local rock scene.
While Six Bullet Roulette has experienced several line-up changes, with its founding guitarist and bassist, both, being replaced by Aaron Davenport and Dakota Jackson, respectively, the band’s sound has tremendously grown and matured since the replacements.
Along with performing a slew of their original songs from the band’s growing discography, Six Bullet Roulette put on a phenomenal cover of Stone Sour’s Through The Glass, which really showcased the power behind vocalist Daniel Hayes’ voice.
While Six Bullet Roulette has been known as a rock band, the band’s sound has progressed heavier and heavier since the band first formed in 2008. The band’s cover of Save Me by the DFW metal band Damageplan, was nearly spot on due to Aaron Davenport’s precise guitar playing.
