Another show in the Weird part of Providence…
Gila Monster – Abrasive (compliment) no-wave rriot grrl-fronted trio from Rhode Island.
MONSTERS that played with the energy of at least seven electrodes.
Kokomo – I don’t remember this band. Either they were boring or I missed them. Guess that makes them forgettable.
Megachurch – AWESOME. Instrumental post-punk with sampled, angry vocals. Think Shellac minus Albini’s vox plus ties.
Sadly missed Clan of the Cave Bear and Holy Sheet. Apparently HS’s last show for a while/forever (I don’t remember which), people are moving on to other things, like jobs, etc… according to one of their “musicians.” I can’t remember the exact reasons, but they sounded valid.
I’m disappointed. I guess they weren’t on a label/making much money from touring.
Good riddance, ya filthy assholes, you were one of the best/least tasteful parts of Providence. I will miss the undies, the howling, the lack of attention to detail, and the dancing.
