If I had to make a comparison, I'd say Benvenue is like Incubus meets Rage Against the Machine but, despite the similarities, Benvenue definitely has a unique sound that's all their own.
It also doesn't hurt that they're a bunch of hotties! Between Sid's sexy handlebar mustache & Fran's bulging biceps, it was tough to always stay focused on the music Friday night but it wasn't an entirely unwelcome distraction ;-)
There was no escaping the obvious fact that Benvenue brought the house down in Hollywood! The crowd went nuts! Unfortunately, the venue's strict cut-off time prevented Benvenue from giving their audience the encore they demanded but it never hurts to leave the fans begging for more.

Their next show is February 23rd in San Francisco so, if you live in the Bay Area, I HIGHLY suggest you go see the awesomeness that is Benvenue for yourself!
