Monday (10/8) I saw Milk Dick at Muchmore’s. They were a killer pop-rock-n-roll-garage-3-piece that was really fun and really funny. Their guitarist/singer Mike Delaney, also of the band Easter Vomit, played really loosely and had a lot of personality with his playful-cute-boy shtick. He went wild with some noisy guitar solos. I liked how their drummer didn’t look like she gave a shit as she chewed pink bubble gum and blew bubbles while she was rocking out. My favorite song was about eating a piece of girls hair that was found in a car.
Check out Milk Dick next Friday 10/26 at the SICKEST HALLOWEEN PARTY YOU’LL EVER GO TO IN THE AWESOME BASEMENT OF 844 MYRTLE. Lunchbox, Sharkmuffun, The Vandelles & Hippy will also be performing.
My shitty punk band played a show Tuesday (10/9) in the back room at Public Assembly with the awesome electronic dance bands Bright Futures, Kent Odessa and Lingerie. I think I may have fucked up my telecaster that I painted silver with nail polish earlier that day by ripping all the strings out of it at the end of my set with Sharkmuffin, but who cares? I have like 8 other guitars anyway. Lingerie took the stage after that. Their singer looks as if Lucy, the secretary from Twin Peaks, was way sexier and could sing really well, or if their tracks were a bit slower, she would have been cast in a few David Lynch films as the token singing babe. Kent Odessa wins the award for the cutest female backup singer/dancers. Front man Kent’s own prince-esque dance moves were also pretty sweet. One of their songs was stuck in my head all week. I unfortunately missed Bright Future’s set because my wallet was stolen, but you can check them out below.
On Friday (10/12) I went to Living Bread and caught an acoustic set by Cassie Ramone of The Vivian Girls and The Babies, listened to some sweet tunes spun by members of Total Slacker, and saw the band Liquor Store. Acoustic sets at Deli’s-turn-music-venues are great, especially when they’re followed by a band from New Jersey called Liquor Store. It felt like when I was 16 and working at this venue/cafe called The Internet Cafe in Red Bank, NJ and there would be weird vibed open mic nights. Liquor Store was a great straight rock n’ roll band with catchy shout-along verses. Their opening song was amazing, but it felt like they jizzed all over my face too soon and then spent the rest of the set trying to get it back up, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. @SugarmamaBK
