Roots revival rock! Punkgrass! Swampcore! Post-Steinbeck! Whatever notions you're keen on employing with regard to the Dust Bowl ditties of Bend, Oregon's Larry and His Flask are likely to be scrambled like a campfire breakfast the moment they step on stage. Like rampaging cabinfolk, the sextet casts a formidable (read: chaotic) presence from the get-go, generating enough energy via headbanging, screaming (and harmonizing), jumping into the crowd, jigging and strummin' up lightning-fast folk-punk stanzas to power a small club. Luckily for the audience, this make-up performance marks a chance to see the band from in the intimate confines of the Doug Fir before they're whisked away across the country opening for the Reverend Horton Heat, then later in the year with Lucero to much larger crowds. Get ready to sweat. RYAN J. PRADO
