The MOTHER'S CHILDREN 7" release party on Friday was a doozy. ZEBRASSIERES kicked off the night with about 7 songs that were over before you knew it. Unfortunately, the songs were good so once you knew it was over you were kind of upset about it but at least you got to eat a banana and throw it back at the gorilla that gave it to you the first place. This was their first show and they're way better than a lot of bands that play together for years. Keep your eyes and (zebra) ears open so that you don't miss them next time they play.
SAVAGE CRIMES played next but I had to miss them but I'm sure it was classic SC with TODD yelling a bunch of weird shit and a bunch of songs getting played.
THE WHITE WIRES were next and they absolutely DESTROYED. They were really great and played a lot of new songs including their song that will appear on the GOING GAGA COMPILATION. THe crowd was already going wild but would go even wilder once a sheet was put up to cover up the band. When the curtain dropped it sounded like BEATLEMANIA as it was revealed that IAN was behind the drum kit and ALLIE was up front with a guitar in her hand! It was her first live performance and blasted through "BUNNY LUVVV" to a highly receptive crowd. I really hope this is a preview of a whole set because it sounded really good and her songs are really really catchy. Check them out HERE if you haven't already.
Not to be overshadowed at their own release party, MOTHER'S CHILDREN put on what was probably their best set to date. They flew through around a dozen songs with barely a break between them and they sounded GOOD. REALLY GOOD. They even played a new song that was incredibly amazing. This band is only getting better and better and I'm really looking forward to hearing them record some of their new stuff and putting that out. Their debut 7" should be in your record collection so don't hesitate to pick up a copy.
The newest issue of STANDARD ISSUE was also released at this show and you should make sure to pick that up. Probably the best issue to date it features interviews with SAVAGE CRIMES, DEMON'S CLAWS & MASSHYSTERI as well comics, articles about stuff, etc. etc. Not to mention the cover was drawn by the one and only DIRTY DONNY!
