Last night, Vomitface opened up night one of their month long residency at Cake Shop for which I did not stay because I am a sleepy d-bag. My apologies to them.
I did, however, catch the stylings of promising bands in the swirling shoe-gaze of Lady and the gritty indie-rock of A Deer A Horse. The latter had a monstrous live bass sound, sweet harmonies, and a great cover of “Pennyroyal Tea” in tow. The dynamic of the band spilt between Rebecca Satellite’s sometimes-natural, sometimes-unhinged cool as a front-woman and Angela Phillips’ thundering bass sound makes them worthy torch bearers of the Cobain/Novoselic pop-grunge legacy.
Check out video of A Deer A Horse and Lady below and be sure to catch Vomitface the next few Mondays and send me some photos to make up for missing out.
