We love Rhode Island. They've given us greats as Chinese Stars, and the ever-spectacular TINSEL TEETH, who played smack dab in the middle of a bill with the pummeling CACAW and the excellent, noisey-as-hell RUNNING opened it up.
A three band smack to the face that was over before anyone even realized they had a shit-eating grin on their face.
Running are great. They've been around a while, are in other bands who are all equally killer. They play short, bursts of a set that can sometimes be over in the blink of an eye. Really great layered fuzzed-out vocals and guitar, Alejandro Morales on drums wailing away until they all seemingly collapse in exhaustion.
Tinsel Teeth ran around freaking the shit out of everybody, the female-frontwoman covered in fake blood, running around the bar, and eventually jumping off, while a wall of noise and screams from every member filled every inch of the place.
Cacaw have new songs, and they're really good. You should know by now these Chicago ass-kickers are the real deal. Catch them live.
