If it hadn’t been for a slight misunderstanding, the hilariously vulgar one-man keyboard dynamo known as The Infamous Sugar might have been known as the Infamous Roach.
Atlanta’s Howlies arrive with great anticipation this Saturday. The pop-punk group’s bouncy tracks have been lauded by critics far and wide. Their short rise to success is certainly deserved, the band’s debut album Trippin’ with the Howlies offers surf rock spiked with do-wop psychedelic melodies. The Modern Lover’s Producer, Kim Fowley has helped to craft an album that captures the electricity of Howlies’ live show by recording them live in analog.
The Bleeding Hearts are the kind of cool local band we should be proud to claim as part of Raleigh. Grayson Currin of the Indy regards the band highly: “Among the foremost disciples of Raleigh’s hard-won, rarely forsaken guitar-rock heritage, The Bleeding Hearts received a boost from an unlikely idol, E-Street Band guitarist Little Steven Van Zandt. He featured the quartet’s “Rehab Girl” on the “Coolest Song in the World” segment of his popular satellite radio show in August, and the band’s been gathering play and popularity ever since.” If the Hearts are good enough for Currin and Van Zandt, two tastemakers whose opinion I respect, it can be assured to be a great show. $5 @ 10pm Myspace Page
