Sundown Showdown IV: TOAD, Sleep Money, Destruction Unit, Radio Moscow, and Graveyard at Yucca Tap Room, 1/27/12
|Jason P. Woodbury|
But Graveyard, featuring former Norrsken members Joakim Nilsson and bassist Rikard Edlund helped unify everyone. You would think that as the clock approached 1 a.m., the place might clear up a bit, but no such luck. Clearly, Graveyard was the band folks wanted to see. The band's latest, Hisingen Blues, found them moving even more in a straight rock 'n' roll direction, and their performance on the Yucca stage was the short of thing your dad or uncle might just as easily groove to.
You know, if they're the kind of folks who can handle fighting for a spot.
Last Night: Sundown Showdown IV: TOAD, Sleep Money, Destruction Unit, Radio Moscow, Graveyard
The Crowd: Greasers, crusties, people I've worked with in record stores, metalheads, a few random bro-dawgs looking to get "hammer wasted."
Good Point, Man: [Discussing Radio Moscow] "I mean, you might as well be listening to Hans Olson."
Hey, That's Cool: A mini-dance party broke out when DJ Horsepussy dropped some soul and funk 45s between sets.
