monday nite with vaz
November 11, 2013 § Leave a comment
Hey all! There’s a cool Total Festy-type band playing the Badlander tonight for a free show! Nifty! Vaz is a rock outfit from Brooklyn; take a listen. The esteemed Jason McMackin describes its focus as “instrumental ass-kickery.” I think the show gets going after trivia around 10:30, and it’s free, but most likely 21-plus, sorry.
In nonlocal happenings, here’s a band (with members of Coalesce, Hopesfall, Casket Lottery) called Anakin that, near as I can tell does not contain any actual Star Wars references. But does make awesome, depressed synthy driving rock that sounds straight out of the late 90s. (To me, anyway, though I should probably admit I do not distinctly recall the late 90s, as I was approximately 9 years old and still into doing stuff like watching Bugs Bunny and accidentally drinking fertilizer. I lived!)
