Local Love: Battle Rabbit

Artist: Battle Rabbit Song: "Wingsuit"

Today's lo-fi video clip comes courtesy of Battle Rabbit, a new band born from the ashes of Athens ragtag indie rockers Men of Gentle Birth. MOGB guitarist Drew Sherrick relocated to Columbus last year to take over booking and management for Oldfield's on High after his dad bought the bar. He's been doing a good job keeping the calendar over there pretty enticing, and tonight is no exception, as his bar hosts his new band with former MOGB bandmate Ian Wolfe. Judging from this recording of "Wingsuit," Battle Rabbit is a lot like their previous band: loud, sweaty, passionate, melodic rock 'n' roll of the indie persuasion. They'll play alongside Rosewood Thieves, Karate Coyote and Blastronauts at Oldfield's tonight.
