Friday night was Sonny Vincent & The Bad Reactions at PA's Lounge...I like this place...I wish they'd have more bands I'd like to see there....we got there at about 9:30/10PM...and sorry but the first two bands were terrible...I heard someone say "What is this amateur night?" lots of horrible singing...bad playing on every instrument...just terrible....we hung out and talked, waiting and waiting for Sonny. The third band showed us a glimmer of hope; Bad Reactions guitarist Josh got up on stage but got behind the drums...this was his band.......well, Josh should stick to guitar or get a lot more practice on the drums...but I will say they were a significant step up from the other bands on the bill so far. Now it's getting LATE...and this is a 1AM club...."Where's Sonny!!??" We're pleading!! THAT's what we want!!! Finally at about 12:15 he hits the stage...and woohooo!!!! They were on FIRE fabulous through the whole set.
This band Sonny has with him is just plain amazing. All super cute young guys with black hair and black clothes and awesome musicians too!! The drummer Luis puts to shame every drummer I know off...he was show stopping, putting his heart and soul and everything he had into every song. Sonny was killin' it on guitar and everyone was super high energy; the songs were straight ahead garage punk classic sound, fired one right after another for a straight 45 minutes!! It was great...everyone wanted more..much more but they shut off his mike and turned up the lights and that was that. Frankly I wish he was paying a second night, I would have gone back....
I just came across a really great interview with Sonny on a site called Coilhouse... please click and read it....here's a quote I absolutely love...
Coilhouse: Any thoughts on the punk-looking bands on MTV?
Sonny: Those motherfuckers owe me royalties. If any of them are reading this, they should send checks made out to Sonny Vincent care of this website! Some of these bands are trying to carry on some tradition, but most are just pretending to be punk. It's never been clear what punk is and it's funny for me to use the term. The first time I saw it was on a Ramones album. I didn't like it until the industry came out with the term "New Wave." It made me want to be punk.
And here's a clip of the Bad Reactions on You Tube
Now Saturday.... Cal Cali, ubiquitous man about town, marked his birthday with a gig at the Rosebud. Lyres were topping the bill. We got there early figuring the Rosebud is small and it would sell out. Did it? No. Should it have? Oh ya. Meanwhile across town tens of thousands gathered for Earthfest, the draw there? The Spin Doctors! In my world that's crazy but I think you know that.
Tsunami of Sound started off. They are a surf band and played the stuff you expect (Hawaii 5-0, Penetration, Theme from the Munsters etc.). They had a good surf sound, solid beat, and the lead guitarist was soaked in a classic reverb tone. Oh, did I mention the GO GO GIRLS? They were dancing like they were in a cage on Hullabaloo circa 1964. Bet the Spin Doctors didn't have that. Damn son-of-a-bitch Spin Doctors.
Just as The Tsunami of Sound ended I hear a perfect segue into " 7 and 7 is" by Love and turn to see Brett Milano at the turntables, I had forgotten we was spinning. It was the icing on the birthday cake for this night.
