Wow! First time I've seen Doctor Moss and they blew me away. Reminds me a little bit of Primus with out the schlock and Mr. Bungle with out the vocals. Party Killer was great. Their new drummer seems to fit in well. Some dude punched him in the face during the set.
I've seen the Black Angels once and Roky a few times. This was a pretty mediocre night for both bands. The Black Angels were about as inventive as any other throw-back act, not what I was anticipating at all. Roky must have had an off night. Eh, still better than most of the shows you'll see on an average Wednesday.
This is going to be such a killer night. Candy Apple does the surfy garage punk this so well. L&HF is great on record. The Pink Snowflakes playing new songs from an unrecorded album!!! Supposed to be heavy like a Blue Dwarf.
Rocking Horse People were awesome, but it was Spirit Vine who ruled the night. Hypnotic and druggy.
The Knast was great, but started really late. It seemed like they were pissed off at everyone in the room, too. The Pink Snowflakes (The reason for going to the show) were in top form. Ripping through a hot set and setting the stage for The Family Gun. The Family Gun proceeded to Shit all over the stage with their Poser Schlock.
The night started with a sleepy set from Big Sky, not much to write about, just your average drone band. The Pink Snowflakes were explosive! Totally destroying the comfortable fuzz-haze left over from the previous band. It was a massacre. Voyager One stepped up next. The best part of their set was the guy running visuals: Five film Projectors, a couple slide projectors, a DVD projector and creative use of it all. The music was pretty good, but the projections would have been better suited to the Pink Snowflakes set.
The Shivas play Blue Cheer inspired garage rock with enough Velvet Underground and Troggs influence to keep things interesting. They are always solid and this was no exception. The Pink Snowflakes are little more eclectic, and schizophrenic. This was not their best night, but it was way better than the worst I've seen them. They even broke out a cover of "I Can Hear the Grass Grow"!
Go Fever kicked it off with Danger Diabolik projected behind them. The Pink Snowflakes exploded from behind red curtains with the best psyche-rock this side of 2000. The guy next to me got so excited, he started slamming his head into the speakers and split his forehead open. Danava closed everything out with some tight prog-metal riffing. I wish it was my birthday party.
