BEAR CUB are a duo, a big guitar, some pedals, three amps, and some drums playing stuff you think you can dance to… https://www.facebook.com/bearcubstl BLACK FOR A SECOND won the award for BEST PUNK BAND. They did. Singer/guitarist Joey Jordan’s soulful grit — spiked with humor and despair — pours through his searing vocal delivery, leaving any semblance of pretentiousness behind. Tim Pinkerton’s propulsive, precise-as-hell drumming steers you through post-hardcore and punchy punk intersections. And the noodling bass dances around a nervy duo of crunchy Les Pauls. Black for a Second offers a blend of rootsy punk rock that can only be found in the Midwest.
