They may not originally be local, but they'll be playing local! Meet Rescue Dawn from Buffalo, NY. Created in early 2013, Rescue Dawn is made up of four talented members that combine incredibly different, but somewhat familiar music perspectives. The combination allows Rescue Dawn to have an aggressive, yet smooth sound. With influences by bands like Four Year Strong, A Day to Remember and Blink 182, Rescue Dawn can be summed up as a fresh-emotional alternative rock band. High-energy shows that consist of ground-shaking vocals, ripping guitar licks and heavy bass lines have been the culprit of an ever-growing fan base. You'll be able to hear Rescue Dawn's track "Cardinals" this Thursday night on Local Love and see them live Friday July 10th at The Warehouse in downtown La Crosse!
