SMI correspondent Pete Shin stopped by the Jet City Stream Vitamin Water Live Lounge sessions on Day 1 of the Capitol Hill Block Party to catch up with the power duo, The Grizzled Mighty. Seattle’s newest online radio station, Jet City Stream hit the “cyberwaves” in April, and last weekend, they hosted their very first live sessions using Google + Hangouts. The sessions included a bevy of bands throughout the weekend, such as Fly Moon Royalty and Walking Papers featuring Duff McKagen (Guns N Roses, The Fastbacks, Loaded) and more.
Grizzled Mighty is Whitney Petty on drums and Ryan Granger on vocals and guitar. Granger also does double duty with the Seattle rock outfit, Fox and The Law. The Grizzled Mighty’s performance at Capitol Hill Block Party was a full- out sonic assault on the senses. Their brand of stripped down, nasty, gritty Americana rock peeled the paint off the walls and left ears ringing long after the set was done.
Check them out in October, when they perform at City Arts Fest 2012.
Listen and download their debut release for free on Bandcamp.
