Tonight Lightning Bolt! Lightning Bolt!

I was talking to a friend at Sunday’s Calla show and asked him what he was excited about seeing next. His eyes got big and he asked, “Do you know Lightning Bolt?” I replied in the negative, and he spent the next five minutes giving me the quick tutorial on the duo (former RISD students, noise-rock consisting of a bassist and drummer, strong aversion to playing on actual stages). They play the Vera Project tonight, and I can’t think of the last time I’ve been this excited about seeing a band I’ve never heard. Here’s a video of the madness yet to be experienced.
