Three of my favorite recent bands (Spider Bags' "Bad Complexion" is my current favorite recent song) all under one roof!
Sat November 4
DOT DASH CMJ Showcase
THE COYDOGS (NYC)
SPIDER BAGS (Chapel Hill, Birdman Records)
THE GOODNIGHT LOVING (Milwaukee, Dusty Medical Records)
at Magnetic Field - 97 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn)
This will be one hellavu show, folks...do not miss. A perfect bill of American rocknroll circa 1973!
THE COYDOGS - This NYC trio takes their cues from the
early 70s fusion of Southern Blues and Country
RocknRoll. Influences range from Gram Parsons and
later Byrds to The Band. The mature playing and
excellent singer-songwriter comes through from these
seasoned local players - real rocknroll.
SPIDER BAGS - Chapel Hill, NC via New Jersey
country-tinged rocknroll with hard-living emotions.
The band has a passion and soul that would sit well
beside Crazy Horse. "Spider Bags are a country-rock
band with a whole album's worth of songs about being a
no-good pissed-off drunk motherf**cker." -
Their debut full length, "A
Celebration Of Hunger" will be released in early 2007
on Birdman Records.
THE GOODNIGHT LOVING - Milwaukee, Wisconsin roots
rocknroll. This band has all the hooks, clever lyrics
and spirit of the best country-tinged garage
rocknroll. Their debut full length, "Cemetery Trails"
was produced by Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound, The
Oblivians); it is out on CD/LP from Dusty Medical
Records. "Perfect Byrds-esque soaring pop, as good as
anything the Reigning Sound has done. No wonder Greg
Cartwright produced 'em... there's country, slide,
mandolin, washboard, passing freight trains all thrown
in..." (Eric Friedl, Goner Records).
