Show Crush: The Grinds / Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls / Dirty Truckers / Jason Bennett & the Resistance at Church tomorrow

May 12, 2011

It’s a guest post from our good friend Rice Edmonston of Full Body Anchor! Take it away, Rice!

So dig this… tomorrow night at Church in the lovely Fenway area, there is a gig that I am sure will fulfill all your rock ‘n’ roll desires. First up are The Grinds, a brilliant new post-punk band that sound somewhere between Pat Benatar and Rocket From The Crypt (two of my favorites). The songs are memorable and the band rocks hard. Fronted by the always sweet and ever so sexy Erin Wickens and backed by members of a multitude of great local bands such as The Spoilers, Acro-Brats & Tenafly Vipers, their performance will only leave you wanting more. Also, they have an EP coming out soon, and I am told they will passing out some promo copies at the show.

Up next is Richard Bacchus & The Luckiest Girls. Bacchus is no stranger to the stage – you may recognize him as the former guitar player in the legendary punk band D-Generation. He has also performed with Dee Dee Ramone, Sprokett and Murphy’s Law, just to name a few. His new material with the Luckiest Girls is a wonderful mixture of punk and folk. Great melodies, great hooks, and a whole lot of attitude.

The Dirty Truckers, in my opinion, are one of the best damn rock bands in Boston. They have everything Tom Petty and AC/DC have, but frontman Tom Baker is far more handsome than Petty or Scott. I have stood in the audience many times with my friends cheering about some mind-blowing lick that either John Brookhouse, Jamie Griffith or John Lynch just played. Trust me, you’ll be running to their merch table to buy everything you can get your hands on after witnessing their set.

Rounding out the night is Jason Bennett and the Resistance. Jason has been kicking the shit out of the scene for as long as I can remember. They play punk rock that is both well written and fun to listen to. Their live performance is powerful, the songs are honest and the band is tight. I can’t think of a better way to close out an evening of unrelenting rock.
