A UK-bred band full of reckless swagger and hugely catchy hooks, the Struts are bringing modern rock 'n' roll to the Knitting Factory on Nov. 11.


A UK-bred band full of reckless swagger and hugely catchy hooks, the Struts are returning the sweet and dirty spirit of glam to modern rock 'n' roll. Having already taken Europe by storm by opening for the Rolling Stones before a crowd of 80,000 in Paris last year, the newly L.A.-based four-piece is now breaking through to American audiences with their exhilarating debut EP "Have You Heard."

The Struts will be playing Reno's Knitting Factory Concert House on Nov. 11. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

With their glitzy-yet-scrappy aesthetic -- not to mention frontman Luke Spiller's snarling vocals and otherworldly range -- the Struts might seem to have stepped straight out of the '70s. But as proven on lead single "Could Have Been Me," The Struts fuel their high-powered sound with an urgency that's entirely of the moment.

The Struts are Luke Spiller (lead vocals), Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and

(drums). Since forming in Derby, England in 2012, the band has been touring regularly throughout the U.K. and Europe.

Tickets for the all-ages show cost $8 in advance, $10 on the day of the show and $20 for reserved box seats. They are available at the Cal-Neva Casino main cashier cage 24 hours a day, at Recycled Records, by calling 866-468-3399 and online at Ticketweb or The Knit.
