Lisa Savidge CD Release Party at The Rhythm Room Last Night
|Dan Somers (Lisa Savidge)|
In case you're late to the party, Lisa Savidge is not the name of some songstress. There isn't even a woman in the band -- it's a group of five men who combine all sorts of subgenres into a unique hodgepodge that simply is Lisa Savidge, has Michael Lopez stated in a recent You Asked for it.
Elements of post-rock overlap with shoegaze, then jump to rock-rock and morph into an instrumental psychedelic crescendo. Their sound is simply their own. Just when you think you have them pegged as this or that, the music takes a sharp turn into something new.
They closed with "Appalachacha Pts. 1 & 2",
|Garnet (Dry River Yacht Club)|
Dry River Yacht Club closed out the evening with their usual nautical gypsy folk symphony craziness. Everyone who was not bolted down by an instrument danced nonstop, especially Garnet, the singer. Although the venue cleared out a bit after Lisa Savidge wrapped up their set, DRYC had plenty of die-hard fans bobbing along.
The Necronauts were originally scheduled to play last, but switched to the opening slot. Maybe they were worn out from their tour kick off at the Yucca Tap Room the night before. Their melodic punk makes them sound a bit like a modern version of The Dead Milkmen.
Last Night: Lisa Savidge CD release party at The Rhythm Room.
Personal Bias: Dry River Yacht Club is always a blast.
Overheard in the Crowd: "I wonder what kind of apron Garnet will be wearing."
Random Notebook Dump: Man, The Necronauts are going to be exhausted once they wrap up their tour.
