My ears are bleeding, no - no they really aren't but they might as well have been last night. It was fucking LOUD! I was at the troubadour and saw 3 really cool bands, all on the same bill. I love when that happens! Frausdots were on first and to my surprise it was Brent from Further/Beachwood sparks fronting them. they had the sound of Brian Wilson at times and The Beatles other times. It was pretty mellow but still very much rockin'. I'd go see them again, in fact they are playing for FREE at Spaceland this month. Next up was Dead Meadow, I'd see these cats before and was impressed the first time (from D.C.) They have this heavy drone sound to them. The guitars fucking kicked ass - the sound of them, i can not describe other than to say "feedback & distortion", extra long guitar jams.
I'm going to have to hit up amoeba soon for some cd's by all three bands. The Warlocks are one of the best "guitar drone" bands out there. The lights were incredible and the fog machine, it was so psychedelic and goovey. The sound was super heavy and I later noticed that there were 2 drummers! you know what? everyone should have 2 drummers! (as if one good drummer isn't already hard to find, think of trying to find 2 that can work together) At points of the show I had to move away from the wall because the bass guitar was so loud that i can feel it through my back from the wall (if that makes any sense), it was hard to swallow sometimes [ the feeling of being blown away]. I was blown away by The Warlocks! They have the whole "my bloody valentine" type guitar drone down.
Tonight i'm looking forward to seeing The Faint and TV on the Radio with Beep Beep at The Mayan Theatre.
