Lords of Fuzz, The Jack Trades, a little band from Atlanta called The Howlies and The Knew
Ok. I get it. Nobody wants to hear about my hippie tomato garden. 53 views and no comments = weak-shit blog. I’m a little hurt, but I’ll get over it.
Last Sunday at the Larimer was one of those Sundays where a couple of damn-respectable rock bands tore through the club, melted some faces, got wasted with everybody and went on their merry way.
Lords of Fuzz are shredders. They are a band that I’ve literally watched grow into the title they bestowed upon themselves. If there were ever a most improved band award, I would either give it to them or The Knew.
Too bad the Larimer was noticeably sparse for their set. If it weren’t for Lords of Fuzz’s heavy drinking fan base, I probably wouldn’t have been able to pay my parking tickets.
The Jack Trades fucking came out of nowhere. All the employees at the bar spent their tips on Jack Trades’ merch. Now that American Relay is kaput, it seems Denver’s collective belly has been growling for some deep fried country blues. If your tummy has been growling too, check this band out. They make me wish I had a CD player on my scooter – like that white Stella at Sportique with the sidecar and the sub-woofer in the glove compartment. So fucking rad!
As if the night could get any better, this little garage rock band out of Atlanta sporting four-part vocal harmonies and a psyched-out surf-rock jangle, The Howlies confirmed that Georgia just might be the true home for amazing rock bands. Check out their music video “Aluminum Baseball Bat,” a song about rich, girlfriend-stealing douchebags getting the justice they deserve – Aluminum baseball bat justice (http://www.myspace.com/howlies).
It has been a long summer at the Larimer. I will most likely be deaf before I’m thirty, but bands like these make it all worth it. This Sunday, Aug. 23rd, come and check out another BBQ at the Larimer hosted by none other than Denver’s Reno Divorce who are poised to take over the world. Also playing: Primasonic, The Palsies, King Rat, and more.
Also, I hear that Donnybrook is hosting another “Benefit for Rich People” Sept. 6 at Larimer Lounge. With the economy as it is, rich people need our help more than ever. The pool won’t clean itself!
Keep Drinking and rocking,
