Band of Skulls, a blues rock band from Southampton, England is on tour for their new album, “Himalayan” with special guests Deap Valley, an alternative, blues rock duo. Band of Skulls played at St. Andrews Hall while another show played in the basement at The Shelter. Even though the sounds overlapped, Band of Skulls and Deap Valley held their own. Deap Valley did a great job and it was nice to see them appear on the tour. But Band of Skulls had the crowd roaring for what they wanted. Band of Skulls rocked out to new songs like “Hoochie Coochie” and performed old ones like “Bruises.” After an hour and a half of performing, Band of Skulls thanked Detroit for a great night and exited the stage. Fans wanted more and began to stomp the floors of the St. Andrews Hall and it appeared they were not ready to end the night. Two minutes later, Band of Skulls returned finishing off the night with “Lights of the Morning” and “Death by Diamonds and Pearls.” Winning the battle of two concerts in one venue.
