More monkey dancing


Heavy as a really heavy thing. Not so much were the two local openers which, as usual, didn't match the sonic aesthetic of the headliner, but that's the biz, kidz. Furthermore, Now That's Class, despite being a venue eminently digable for live tuneage, is arctic molasses slow in getting the proceedings a kick in the ass.

So, a late start regifted us some run o' the mill deathy grindcore drone. Capable players, but boring as your favorite band unless it's mine, too. Then even more time wasted by neo-punkish organ-y riffing on the Misfits style that, unlike the Misfits, sucked, but at least they didn't suck as much as the incredibly sucky lead singer/suckiest bag of suck who ever sucked who, in troo anarkee fashion, chucked, randomly or not I don't know, a full beer bottle in the audience that hit a chick smack in the skull.

Thank Odin she was okay, confronting the douchebag after the set who, apologetic like a child stuck playing the "oh shit I got caught" card, evident in the rapid downsizing of his vocal rage after said chucking witnessed by all of us outside the stage grabbing fanboys. According the Duchess, there's at least one other local club they've been banned from. Wonder why.


Full tour opener Ancient VVisdom gave us Agalloch-via-Austin paeans to heathenry and such, so shit I dig. As the cooler half of the Peonage has pointed out before, yeah, the lead singer may veer into rock and/or roll posturing on occasion, but it's only rock and/or roll, and I like it. Theatre. Plus, musically, they're a sparkling spring carrying away the effluvia of the vanquished.


Sans posture is headliner Royal Thunder, but what a raucous ruckus. Drummer Lee Smith, no, the other Lee Smith, beats his drums like CIA goons beat prisoners for useless information, guitarist Josh Weaver, doing yeoman's work for injured second stringman Josh Coleman, pogos up a down like a demonic apple bobber on the Titanic, and singer/bassist Mlny Parsonz is fucking intensity personified, archetyped, and cloned from herself so chew on that stupid paradox. It's intense.


Can't remember the exact setlist because I'm angry and tired, but they played most of their one and only album, encored with the grinding Parsonz Curse off said record, and, because we were awesomely appreciative, encored a second time with a barnstorming Mouth of Fire off the debut EP. Jesus H. Cthulhu were they heavy. A bit o' Zep, a pinch o' Alice, and a truckload of this. Yeah, I'm pointing to the ticker.

Looks like a garage band turned into a garage. Hey is that your garden hose hanging on the wall?

Randal Graves said...

Garage > corporate. Fine metaphors abound.

Love the way the bassist/singer is giving your cam "the Bird" in that last frame.

Also too: Garage > corporate, until, say, Microsoft, i.e., the Nirdvana of the bsns wrld

Not that into céilidh music we don't do much clubbing these days but we used to go often. The Pdx clubs do a last serve at 2:30am which means the main act didn't hit the stage until at least 12:30. If I'd had the money it would have been cool to open a place where they could play a set at 9:00 for people who have to work the next day and still get to the next gig.

ps: Excellent rant found by numb this am you'll probably enjoy.

Sounds pretty intense. Glad the beer bottle missed you.

Looks like it was fun! Down here you would need a chicken wire cage between the band and the audience because of the flying beer bottles.

jim, Bill Gates probably doesn't rock very hard.

if, ROCK AND ROLL! HELLO CLEVELAND! HELLO CLEVELAND!

susan, there will be folks legitimately thrilled with the advent of the matrix.

tom, if you want to hit yourself on the skull, fine, but being a fucking jackass to your audience isn't being a rebel, but being a fucking jackass.

anne, I can dig sitting in a tree in the dark, but dancing is off limits like liver + onions, most kinds of cheese, and flaming bags of dog crap.

BB, but you can experience both types of music, country *and* western.

I think the Cthulhu cult from Innsmouth got nunly.

if, you stole my line of reasoning two days ago. Bastard.

The featured tunesmiths look as though they rode in under the train. In wet weather. On first seeing the photos, I thought they were the group Wanted in Three States, then remembered WiTS got caught in one of those states and won't be on tour for some time.
