Under Block Party

posted by on July 27 at 13:42 PM

Much fun was had at the Aviation Records and Don’t Stop Believin’ Records Showcase in the cavernous environs of the Cha Cha. As Mr. Grandy mentioned here, the early evening saw an excellent performance from See Me River, who were followed by the similarly excellent Weirdlords, who set the bar for loud rock. Next up was Triumph of Lethargy Skinned to Death, who are louder and more raucous than I’ve ever seen them. The new songs seared with feedback and Spencer Moody’s howling.

Next were Wild Orchid Children, who I’d never seen before. Thirty seconds in, the crowd went ape-shit. The band delivered crazy-ass, blues-infused din in the vein of Delta 72. Wild Orchid Children are my new favorite band.

Here are some pictures:

Pictures may be worth a thousand words, but they don’t come close to doing this show justice.

This was one of my very favorite line-ups of the last few years. Every band that night had something great to offer. And I cannot believe the high quality of Triumph of Lethargy's new material -- it's like we have a brand new Velvet Underground in terms of song quality (let alone cool female drummers).
