C.D. On Songs: Three Day Threshold – "My Favorite Titty Bar""

June 4, 2010

We are guessing that if you are reading this, you may plan on going to a rock show at a bar at some point this weekend. While we always advocate going to the bar, you have a unique opportunity this weekend to get the beer right at the source. Cut out the middleman and just drink at the Harpoon Brewery this weekend. Will there be music? Of course there will, courtesy of Three Day Threshold and a number of other bands. This is your chance to see Three Day Threshold after a two-day boozefest. Do you really want to miss that? Duh, of course not.

Three Day Threshold – “My Favorite Titty Bar”
[download it!]

We’re going to warn you right out front – this song is NSFW. You probably might not want to blast it at your desk, unless you work at Mac’s Twos or something. Even then, we’re wondering what sort of illegal substances an “exotic dancer” might have to ingest to keep up with the wild troubadour rhythms of this song and not somehow give herself a major broken bone or some form of heart failure.

The rhythm gives the song its inertia; like a heavy log rolling down a hill. The icing on the cake (there’s always icing with Three Day Threshold, my friends) is this song’s amazingly vibrant and strong personality. Frontman Kier Byrnes shows up in this song with a 10-gallon hat full of $1 bills – he’s ready to go. Byrnes hoots, hollers and exhibits his admirable range. From the whoopin’ higher-registers to the bottomed-out, I’m-lying-on-the-floor-but-still-singing low tones, Byrnes puts a face on the power with a rapid-fire stream of lyrics that are occasionally punctuated by a short sing-along.

Maybe it’s the subject matter, maybe it’s the spastic energy of the band – this song absolutely cooks. Even when it slows down, it’s a slow burn; like the “exotic dancer” that gives the patrons smoldering looks while writhing about onstage. This song is almost guaranteed to quicken the pulse, assuming you have one.

Want to submit your band’s song to C.D. On Songs?

To be reviewed in a C.D. On Songs column:

*Be a Boston-based band/artist.

*Email a single mp3/m4a/etc. (or a download link to one) to cdonsongs (at) gmail (dot) com, with the subject line “C.D. on Songs” (DO NOT send us a bunch of songs and make us pick, we will ignore you). We require a file – not a streaming link.

*Include album cover art if you have any. If you don’t, a band photo or logo is acceptable.

*Tell us when you want to see it! Give us the date of your show and we’ll make sure it runs as close as possible to that day. No kidding.

We will assume that we have your permission to make the song downloadable on Boston Band Crush (readers will want to hear it, after all). If that’s not ok with you, say so and provide us with a link to the song on an embeddable player like ReverbNation – something we can include in the post (and not just link to).
