VulGarrity at The Shredder

On 11/11/10, the Providence, RI rock duo VulGarrity played at The Shredder with Boise’s own Demoni. Despite only having two members, VulGarrity has a full-blown rock sound thanks to innovative use of sampling and looping.


VulGarrity is composed of siblings Shawn and Tracy Garrity. Their unusual and effective formula stems from years of having a cast of unreliable band mates. The Providence Duo took matters into their own hands and invented their own incredible hard-hitting, full-fledged sound without having to rely on other musicians.


Their songs are fun, horror-tinged dance rock numbers that are bursting at the seams with energy and mischievousness. Tracy and Shawn switch instruments frequently, moving in between drums, guitar, bass and keyboards in an effortless manner. The songs stand on their own, but watching VulGarrity fluidly trade instruments makes for an amazing and completely one-of-a-kind live experience.


VulGarrity uses fierce and energetic bass guitar, four-on-the-floor drumbeats, heavy metal leads, distorted and angular rhythm guitar and spooky keyboards to create a successful formula. No two songs sound alike, but they all have something in common: they are catchy, captivating and irresistible. VulGarrity does not shy away from pop hooks, shy away from rocking out or shy away from taking the road less traveled. Simply put, the next time VulGarrity is in Boise, YOU need to be there.
