Sloppy Seconds

Blowfish is our weekday rover: Dot Rats on the bill attracted me to the Middle East gig early in the week. It turns out I missed them but caught The Pity Whores and Sloppy Seconds. It was a Monday show but the club was on the full side. As they posted on the Pity Whores web site; "It was great to see, hangout, and indeed molest many good friends that turned out to the Middle East tonight and braved the omnipresent thoughts of "Shit, work is going to suck tomorrow."

Pity Whores

    The Pity Whores, like the Queers who they are connected to, just bang out the goods; basic punk. They give you the fix that Triple Thick does when you have listened to other bands that come with baggage, complications and excuses for this and that and you get sick of it. The bass playing was busy and knocking my head around, in a good way. Wimpy Rutherford did a guest shot and doled out even more energy. Here's a video of Pity Whores at the Midway. This video doesn't give you the bottom end so you will miss the fine bass playing.


   The main attraction tonight was Sloppy Seconds who I was clueless about outside of listening online beforehand and liking the Ramones type rock I was getting. Everyone else though, were fans, and the band was treated like returning heroes and After the set I could see why. They were a mix of cartoony fun, satire and Ramones rock. Their lyrics have bite, despite what seems like a light manor. Everyone knew the lyrics and were singing along all night and cheered as each fave tune was introduced. Moshing, stage diving and beer spilling...check, check, check.

   The lead guitarist, who looks like Weird Al Yankovic, was high stepping it around stage and did his share of mugging and was still was able to deliver the buzz while doing it. On the last song he unveiled his secret weapon, a guitar whose body looked like a box of Fruit Loops. Just a cool thing. Lead singer B.A. had seen Kenne Highland in Bloomington at the Gizmo reunion the week before and Kenne was there in attendance as a return.

   Here's a video of You Can't Kill Joey Ramone that shows their delivery and you can imagine how people sing along with this. I'm a big fan now and will catch them every time they come to town.

Sloppy Loop

   I tried to catch a hardcore show at the Middle East on Thursday but couldn't find a parking space! Central Square was swarming with crowds. It was an overflowing stream of people walking down the sidewalk. Was it the perfect weather or something school oriented? I don't know. It was better luck and less people on Saturday when we went to The Cantab to check out The Drunk Nuns. They won us over on our first exposure at Church. Next time I saw them at O'Briens they played well but the crowd was unresponsive. Tonight they get a very responsive audience.

Drunk Nuns

   These people were in a friendly and playful mood and ready to interact. Whenever Joe Barron the singer said anything he got some funny retorts from the audience. There was some contained moshing. The band did their thing which is no frills punk with interesting songwriting and some catchy hooks in the vocals. On stage they pump out energy and personality. Joe the singer is decked out in a flag bandana, a Willie Nelson t-shirt and flag motif slippers. He later de-shirts to reveal a magic maker note on his chest; "THIS MACHINE KILLS PIZZA".
   He's off the stage now and then joining the moshers too. He's a character and a focus of attention but the Nuns work as a group. They illustrate how even if the music is good the show is important too. As always with groups we love, we think they should be getting more attention.

Drunk Nuns

   The Nuns went on last at almost midnight but the club, which was about two thirds full, remained about one half full till the end. We are used to seeing the crowd leave around 11 o'clock to get the last bus/train. This might be the first time we notice the difference of the MBTA running to two o'clock. It's a new populated world for the last bands.
    Check out The Drunk Nuns on Bandcamp.
   The gig also featured Sweetree Ink, the art/printing shop run by Dave Tree of the late group Tree. They were selling shirts and artwork on the side and the great thing was people were buying!
