Show Crush: Port Charles Quintet / MARS / The Weisstronauts / BrownBoot at TT the Bear’s Thursday

September 15, 2010

Well stocked bar…Check. High energy lineup…Check. Crazy range of influences…Check. Jim Zavadoski…Check.

TT’s has everything ready to go for Thursday night’s party; BrownBoot will get it started early with their ass shaking homage to late ‘60s British powerhouses like Faces, the Stones and the Jeff Beck Group. These guys (and one awesome gal) have been known to get rowdy now and then, but a string of live shows over the summer has really tightened them up into more than just a bar room party band. Then there’s the Weisstronauts, who toss major surf rock influences into a blender with everything else they’ve ever even sort of liked and pull out songs built on combinations that look insane on paper but absolutely kill once you hear them. MARS melds ideas gleaned from every era of rock – ‘60s pop meets ‘70s riffs with ‘80s grandeur. Closing out the night, Port Charles Quintet will bring the room energy to new heights with their soul filled, good time rock ‘n roll. These guys start off strong and don’t let up for a second, injecting classic R&B sounds with garage rock fury that just begs to be danced to.

9pm / 21+ / $8
