Christmas came early to Northport, NY, when Killcode played their first annual Killcode Kristmas show at The Crooked Rail.

New York City-based indie-rock band My World opened the show with a blistering set of originals from their new CD All Shapes and Sizes (released by BMG/Chrysalis). They also put their individual spin on an eclectic mix of covers, ending their set with the rocking-est version of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” I’ve ever heard. Their top-notch musicianship set the tone for the rest of the night.

Killcode hit the stage with “Slave,” a driving modern rock track from their upcoming CD being produced by Joey Zampella of Life of Agony. After rocking out a few songs from their self-titled CD (released by CME/Mega Force/Sony Red), they treated the audience to a rare acoustic set, featuring fan-favorites “Liberated,” “Still Here,” 6 a.m.,” and “Devil’s Song.”

After a short break, they returned to the stage with a cover of the Twisted Sister classic, “You Can’t Stop Rock and Roll.” After playing a few more songs from their previous CDs, they closed with an additional two tracks from their upcoming release, “Kicking and Screaming” and “The Answer,” promising to return next year for another Killcode Kristmas show, and leaving the crowd begging for more.
