Bellows, Purple Rhinestone Eagle, Whore Paint, Cave Girls @ AS220 August 26
Purple Rhinestone Eagle, a three-piece heavy rock group from Portland, burned down AS220 with their Black Sabbath riffs and psychedelic trips this past Thursday night. The all-girl trio really brought their A-games and much of the Providence crowd seemed like they were head-banging or mouth-gaping at the loud music excellence. I had to pick my face off the floor several times cuz it kept melting off. I heard someone yell next to me: “They’re so FUCKING GOOD.” I nodded my head in agreement. One of the cooler bands I’ve seen in a while. They, as the saying goes, fucking slayed.
This was me Thursday night during Purple Rhinestone Eagle, minus the Nazism and all that.
I didn’t see much of Bellows set, sorry dudes, but catch them anytime you can. That’s what I typically do. Check out my older reviews if you want an idea of what they’re about.
Whore Paint and Cave Girls I missed again…
There’s a bunch of shows happening in the area over the next week.
