Pentagram brought back that good, old rock ‘n’ roll last Wednesday night at Underground Arts. Despite some members having played for decades, Pentagram can still send shivers down your spine.

Singer Bobby Liebling is in a league of his own. If you saw him on the street you would probably be worried that he was liable to break a hip. On stage, it is a whole other matter. Liebling dances around with a swagger that almost no frontman even half his age could match.

While Liebling gyrates and leers at the audience, guitarist Victor Griffin effortlessly shreds through the bands catalog.

The younger members of the band – Greg Turley on bass and Pete Campbell on drums – play like they have been doing it for decades as well.

The set included songs like “Relentless,” “Sign of the Wolf” and “Dying World” from their self-titled album, all the way up to “Walk Alone,” “Curious Volume” and “Devil’s Playground” from their new album Curious Volume.

Satan’s Satyrs and Electric Citizen opened the show. The Satyrs definitely had some great ideas happening but their set was somewhat buried beneath a rumbly, muddy mix. I only caught the tail end of Electric Citizen and that was a mistake. This band had a great sound and incredible vocals in the form of singer Laura Dolan.
