About Last Night #7

Stellar lineup at the Summit:  Fey Gods, Psychedelic Horseshit, and Los Llamarada.  Fey Gods and Horseshit are two bands that keep getting better each time I see them.  Fey Gods are getting close to having their guitar-keys-drum machine setup down pat.  I just wish they'd start doing a little more than 30 copies in their cassette runs, since I seem to keep missing out.

Horseshit kicked the usual ass, this time with Dave (most famously of Night of Pleasure?) handling the bass action.  The new songs are killer, but you knew that before, right?  As a sign of the one bummer to come, the PA speakers cut out at the end of the set.  Matt closed things out with an (almost) acapella coda to the last song.  I was glad I stood near the stage.

Hard to really describe Los Llamarada.  This set seemed to pick up as a progression from where they left off with their S-S LP's.  Totally amazing jams.  We were hella lucky to have them come to Columbus.  You must see this band.

About Last Night #6

Dueling banjos last night -- a good handful of bands at Skully's up against a Velvet Underground themed show at the Summit.  I tried my best to maximize, with so-so results.  I caught Deathly Fighter's dance-party set at Skully's.  Good Company played "Fat Bottomed Girls," so I suppose I can't complain too much.  Had to miss Horseshit and the Unholy 2, though.

I made it to the Summit for the later half of Moviola's set.  I liked their "I Can't Stand It."  The Summit was packed (as was Skully's).  A coney dog at Bourbon Street was more my speed between Moviola and Cheater Slicks (the main event).

The Slicks' "Sister Ray" made the evening's scrambling worthwhile.  Faithful to the original but with that added Shannon Bros. guitar magic.  Dana Hatch's vox and Mo Tucker-tribute drumming were spot on, too.  If there's a recording out there, someone needs to make this into a one-sided LP.

Alabama Rocks

I know, I know, this site's in a state of perpetual lag in terms of my posting frequency.  At least I haven't been totally off the boat.  An interview I did with Thomas Function just went up on Agit Reader.  Check it out.

And if you haven't been checking Agit Reader frequently, seriously get over there.  A lot of good stuff on there.  The Robert Griffin interview I mentioned on here before is in the archives, as is a bunch of other cool stuff.

Bill Fox performing again?

So the Revelers posted a MySpace bulletin yesterday afternoon (which I just saw) saying that BILL FOX is playing a show tonight in Cleveland.  It's supposed to be at the Backstage Bar on 17007 Lorain Avenue at 10 PM.

Obviously, this is short notice, but if anyone reads this and went, give us a report (comment/e-mail), please!
