Photos & Review: The Color Turning @ the Showbox

I recently caught the Color Turning at their opening show for Scott
Weiland in Seattle. I’d been checking them out on myspace for a while and
was really excited they got on such a high profile tour. The band is from
Los Angeles, a real hot bed of great bands lately (I just saw fellow
Angelenos Great Northern the other night) and they’re completely gratifying to
listen to and to watch.

Singer/guitarist Steve Scavo’s vocals have great availability and I
especially liked the songs Me Versus Me, New Hooligan. Doppelganger is
also a great, damn catchy song. Something else that impressed me about the
band is that they do things just a bit differently, where you expect beats
to hit or sounds to go one way they go another – and I like that. They
manage to do this ultimately without it being jarring and repeat listens
to Me Versus Me confirms it. I am looking forward to seeing them again and
you should be lucky to see them soon.

Their LP, Good Hands Bad Blood, hits stores August 4, 2009.
