Get spooky, baby! This Thursday WKNC and Tir Na nOg bring you the scariest bands to hit the Raleigh scene: Left Outlet, A Rooster for the Masses, and The Alcazar Hotel. I know you’re heart is racing with fright already! n all seriousness, Local Beer Local Band Night is FREE, 21 and up, and the nightmare starts at 10 p.m. Keep an eye out for Big Boss’s pumpkin beer. AHHH!!!
Easily the hottest gay band in Raleigh, this band features: “T.Lemuel…soothe sayer from another place; D.Smith….dulcet notes stolen from siren songs; L.Bennett…aural massaging with ivory and circuit; St. Anthony…self-destructive plunges into the deep and; C-Tron Bravo…booming pounding grooving.” This band is most likely to rock your face off and steal your boyfriend. Yummmmm
This band is too good. You might have caught them at Hopscotch during our Local Beer Local Band day show at Tir Na nOg. Their album review by Grayson Currin in the Independent Weekly said, “The Rooster still sings truth to power over angular guitar lines and hi-hat pulses, whether riffing on the downtown void King’s Barcade left behind on ‘No Party Downtown’ (the band released Rojo there in 2006) or territorial tendencies on ‘Headwaters.’” Well thankfully, Kings is back (was anyone there this past Saturday?? Luckies…), A Rooster for the Masses is playing music, and everyone will be happy.
“Inspired by the music and philosophies of such seminal bands as The MC5, Morphine, and The Violent Femmes, The Alcazar Hotel play straight up Rock & Roll, no qualifier (indie, alternative, punk, etc.) necessary. Their first release “Songs from The Alcazar Hotel” (Knockdown South, 2005) was a widely received hit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands after Dawson moved there in 2006. After a year of squatting and busking, Dawson returned to the states to record their follow up album, “Come ON! Dig The Unified Theory!” “…The Unified Theory” was recorded with a blistering set up of 2-string bass, electric guitar, and vicious drums at Delta Recording Service in Como, Mississippi. It features guest appearances by Jimbo Mathus of The Squirrel Nut Zippers and Luther Dickinson of The Black Crowes & North Mississippi Allstars.”
There will be a really scary interview on Thursday from 7-8pm starring myself and Left Outlet. Be sure to tune in on the creepyness.
