Halloween 2009 at Boundary Bay Brewery promises to be a most rocking all hallows eve!
I know; I work here so I am kinda obligated to make such statements. But SERIOUSLY y’all. Halloween. 2009. Boundary Bay Brewery. Will. Rock. I type it completely free of all hyperbole because of the most excellent line up of bands playing in the taproom Saturday, October 31 starting @ 10pm. Here is the run down:
DOG SHREDDER (Bellingham, WA playing @ 10:15pm) – These townies will melt your face (in a good way) with their blistering, prog-tinged, metal maelstorm. Now, you might be saying to yourself, “Well I don’t really care for metal music,” But for real: The virtuosity, intensity and energy Dog Shredder exudes is captivating and I personally guarantee that you will be blown away.
THE PASTIES (Olympia, WA playing @ 11:00pm) – Ever wonder what would have happened if Woody Guthrie and Joe Strummer had written a bunch of songs together? My hypothesis is that the songs would have sounded something like The Pasties: Breakneck folk-punk jams sung with lung bustin’ bravado. My suggestion would be to not miss these Olympians doing their thing whatever your feelings may be about folk or punk.
LOZEN (Tacoma, WA playing @ 11:45pm) – From Wikipedia: Lozen (c. 1840-1890) was the sister of the Chihenne–Chiricahua Apache chief, Victorio (akas: Bidu-ya; Beduiat). Born into the Chihenne band during the late 1840s, Lozen was a skilled warrior and a prophet. According to legends, she was able to use her powers(Diya) and (Inda-ce-ho-ndi = “Enemies-Against-Power”) in battle to learn the movements of the enemy. Victorio is quoted to have said that “Lozen is my right hand… strong as a man, braver than most, and cunning in strategy. Lozen is a shield to her people.” The preceding Wikipedia entry on the namesake of these Tacoma ladies band should clue you in to their sound: heavy, throbbing, fearless, melodic metal in the vein of the Melvins.
SUGAR SUGAR SUGAR (Bellingham, WA playing @ 12:30am) – The stomping, psych-jam, sex-rock of Sugar Sugar Sugar has made this Bellingham trio the hottest band in town. Don’t miss this opportunity to see this band in it’s prime on one of the funnest nights of the year!
So throw on your costume and join the party at Boundary Bay Brewery! Doors open @ 10pm, the show is 21+ and there is a $6 cover.
