HOLLYWOOD and Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb played this weekend at a Birthday party in DC. Cory and I decided to stop by. Great show at a bar called the Pinch. Stop Worrying got on stage first and just had a grand old time of it. As you can see by the photos they were wearing football helmets and begging people in the audience to throw things at them or hit them in the helmet. Too funny.
Sal figured it out first that she had to lift the helmet to sing, Mike went through a couple songs till we yelled at him to fix it. Still a great show and fun.
HOLLYWOOD was up next and belted out a great set of tunes from their upcoming "Love Child" LP and a bundle of brand new songs!
Ramma Lamma 7" from Dusty Medical
This is a great pop rock single put out by Dusty Medical. 2 songs of great pop punk rock created and fronted by a husband and wife team from Milawaukee. The songs have a mild hint of glam rock crossed with a lot of pop rock. A bit too much pop in there for me. I still like tough rock n roll. For what it is, it is really well done and of course its put out by our good friend Kevin Mistreater on Dusty Medical.
Best demo of the week!
Musk - from Rob of Tractor Sex Fatality. This is Rob's new band after the Butcher Cover. Musk sounds like a very stripped down Tractor Sex Fatality. The music moves along like the band is bludgeoning their instruments on the stage and Rob's vocals give it a nice sick twist. Rob's vocals are very distinct here as in they were in TSF, but in TSF he was covered up a lot by the music, but with this stripped down sound his vocals are right in front, disturbing you with every note. It sounds great. I enjoyed all 5 songs and did not want it to end.
Xray's - "Jameson Shot" 7"
300 on colored vinyl
