Line Out: Music & Nightlife

RSS icon Comments on Friday, pt 2: Pissed Jeans, Passed Out


I agree with you about not liking rural 70s southern soft rock, I feel the exact same way, but I think you're barking up the wrong tree with Blitzen Trapper. If you had seen their whole set I don't think you could come away saying that's what they sound like and to lump them in the "rural southern rock" category is unfair. It's also unfair to the Cave Singers (urban psych-folk to my ears with beat poetry-type lyrics that don't harken to anything southern at all) and Grand Archives (70's-esque pop, sure I guess, but not southern by any means). Give your town a little more credit than just "southern rock resurgence," I think that's a little broad and it's a journalist's job to be specific and informative.

Go Blitzen Trapper!!!!!!!

Well played, Pecknold. I only saw the couple songs, and I know Blitzen Trapper's sound is way more broad than that. They were just a jump-off for that thought. Also, I just saw 2 Live Crew. Gross.

Sit tight. Saturday recap is on the way. Sneak peak: 2 Live Crew were exactly what you'd expect (although Luke wasn't with them; apparently he skips a lot of their shows).
