So we were al set for the excellent show at O'Brien's Friday night with Doggfight
U.S. , The Acro-Brats and Buried In Leather we got there at 10PM and were turned away…filled to
capacity they were…I have to say I wasn't surprised I guess…but we were a whole lotta bummed out….damn!!
So Blowfish wanted to go to a club and see some music regardless…argh…I knew it
would be less than stellar to ahem say the least…so we tried TT's…didn't
look good …turns out it was one of those DJ nights called Heroes.....OK, over
to the Middle East down….a Guns N Roses tribute band…oh please…..no way!!
So we try ME UP…Joanne was at the door and she tells us it 's metal, rock'n'roll
heavy metal. "It's a Team Shred night" says Blowfish…I roll my eyes and
in we go….to see Sizzlechest and Sticky Fuzz. SizzleChest: is on
stage... .a blonde Leslie West type lead guitarist, hair pasted to his face with
sweat, is crossing guitar necks with the rhythm guy; that's first thing we see…of
course he actually could play quite well! There was one girl up front waving her
arms to the music frantically and completely alone… They aptly ended their set
with Kiss's "God Gave Rock'n'Roll to You"
…up next Sticky Fuzz..well I spied the super cutie from Whole Foods Prospect
St setting up his huge guitar control board (it is so big I actually thought he payed
a keyboard!)on stage so my interest was ever so slightly perked
….up come the rest of the band to do a set of that sort of jazz inspired
fusion rock the suburban guys and gals
Blowie said it not me: "Hipster Doofus"…OK, we left. …just not our cup o'tea one iota…..
lesson learned": leave earlier
if there is a good line up at O'Brien's that for damn sure!!!
So all I can do
is look forward to the next gig I'd like to go to….. Now THIS
Monday Feb 8th at The Plough & Star,
E. Law and Joanie L will be doing their
first installment of "Rebel Rousers"
DJ-ing some great music and making it well worth it to go out on a Monday night.
They each will be doing a 45 minute set, starting at 10PM. Plough has excellent
grub too so go a little early and eat dinner!!
