Personally, I was unfamiliar with The Rods when their moniker surfaced in the roster of bands at Sweden Rock 2014. After posting a photo of the day’s schedule on Facebook, a friend whose musical taste is exquisite told me to see them. He continues to hold his title and was not wrong by any means. Subsequently, three of The Rods albums joined my collection.
They have been announced as the headliners for the Electric City Music Conference in Scranton, PA in September. Here’s the full press release below:

For immediate release and posting:

Over two days (Friday and Saturday), Downtown Scranton is transformed into a music hotbed. Bands from across the United States descend upon Scranton to mix with NEPA’s vast talent pool of local bands. Scranton’s best bars and venues play host to a plethora of music that spans all styles and genres.
