Apollo Run lead singer John McGrew sounds uncannily like Jeff Buckley with some Freddie Mercury-worthy grandstanding thrown in. One moment he offers a quiet little lament, the next he falls to the floor and abuses his guitar in an epileptic fit. Throughout his raucousness, the band sustains a record-perfect clarity in performance, often wrapping up shows with an unplugged hootenanny in the middle of the crowd. With David Rogue.
