If it seems that Puget Sound lethargy has become ground zero for folk-rock and indie-twee in recent years, let Sandrider remind you of Washington’s long history of crushing thunderhead riffs. This behemoth Seattle power trio — which takes its name from Frank Herbert’s Dune saga and its members from cult heavyweights Akimbo and The Ruby Doe — dominates with a sound that’s epic, triumphant, and ultimately entertaining and rules with a reputation as one of the Northwest’s most crucial live acts.
