Attention fans of the Black Keys and the Sheepdogs, prepare your ears for the gritty rock’n’roll that is The Dirty Names. Rumour has it this Maryland band is a rowdy late night party that puts on a dynamite show. Just listen to their single “Puppy Love,” close your eyes and try to imagine yourself not getting lost in the groovy, chunky hooks; hooks that drip with steal-your-girlfriend attitude. There’s a total 70’s-influenced lyric in track “Rock’N’Roll Mind Control” that goes, “Her Daddy said I’d be dead if I ever played his daughter rock’n’roll.” I like it best when it’s forbidden.

Indie Week takes place in Toronto from October 10-14. Check out IndieWeek.com for more detailed information, ticket purchases and performance date announcements. Follow @IndieWeek on Twitter for updates.
