watch out for spiders
Tonight I play a first show with a new band. While that is certainly reason enough to be nervous, the fact that we're opening for two great bands makes it even moreso. One of them is the Bellmer Dolls, who I blogged up last week. The other is LA's Lion Fever.
Dim Mak Records put out their debut EP, Lustre last year and now they are back with a full length called Haunted Water and a new tour. Their sound is agression. Bluesy punk rawk from yesteryear like Blue Cheer, the MC5 or Stooges. But the difference lies in the vocals of Ms Jennifer Pearl. Channeling equal parts Siouxsie and PJ, she commands attention and gets it as she wails and moans both desperation and satisfaction.
Check out their new songs on their MySpace page or check out these tunes from their EP. Go see em live with another fantastic band, the Bellmer Dolls. See them tonight with first-timers Mosaic Fog or Village Panther or whatever we're calling ourselves currently.
