For a Saturday night, Sound Control was pretty dead when I arrived. The only people in the venue are either in bands, working for bands or friends of the bands. But supporting act, Forty Four Hours don’t seem to notice, or care that there’s hardly anyone watching. They play with so much heart that it’s impossible not to be won over. Their catchy bass lines and clean harmonies go even further to draw you in. The frontman plays the crowd like he’s playing an arena, going so far as to get the whole crowd (all 30 of us) clapping along.
