Smart Bets: Hard Rocket and Posh Hammer

BET HardRocketTwo rock ’n’ roll bands on one stage — always a good thing. But what’s interesting about this shared bill, says Hard Rocket bassist Didier Rubio, is “the ages of the members. Hard Rocket is an older experienced group of musicians (in our late 40s) while Posh Hammer is are all in their teens.” Plus, Hard Rocket has two brothers in the band (guitarist Joel Schantz and drummer Ari Schantz) while Posh Hammer is made up of twin sisters (Tasnim and Tiam Setayesh on vocals and bass, respectively) and a brother (Navied Satayesh on lead guitar). All those connections are fun, but what really matters is that both bands can really rock. They’ll do just that that at The LAB on Thursday, April 10, at 9 p.m. $5. Photo courtesy of Hard Rocket
