The Luxury are Crowned 2009 Rumble Kings
RUMBLE'S END: To be honest with you, it's odd to think it's all over... Since April 5th, this city's music-loving children (both the young and the old alike) have converged at the Middle East to be entertained. Now in it's 31st year, we find ourselves at the end of another WBCN Rock 'n' Roll Rumble. The bands just keep getting better and better... Much healthy debate this year - in the chat rooms, over water coolers and atop barstools.
ROCK KINGS CROWNED: Where 24 bands once stood...now, only one remains. Congratulations to The Luxury, a band we already believed to be the city's best rock band. They are confirmed with their victory on Friday night.
WARRIORS: The Luxury have represented the city of Boston before... last year they won the regional competition that landed them the opening spot for Coldplay at the Garden. So it was no surprise that many thought of The Luxury as the band to beat in this year's Rumble. It didn't take long for a reminder. The Luxury (Jason Dunn, Steven Borek, Justin Day, Daanen Krough and Steven Foster) destroyed the audience with a legendary Rumble Night 1 performance on April 5th. (The single best performance by any band at any stage of this Rumble.) Their show on Friday didn't surpass their own epic deeds from the first night, but they were undeniably great - and worthy of this huge win. The Luxury's new album emerges in July!
