50 Foot Wave, Vervein

I saw a few bands the other night at 12 Galaxies. The first act was one guy with an accoustic guitar; I didn't catch his name, but it wasn't really my thing. And then:


    All-girl indie-rock with dual vocals; I liked them a lot. They seem to get compared to The Breeders in reviews, which I can see after having listened to the CD I bought at the show, but while they were playing they reminded me most of early Veruca Salt.

50 Foot Wave:

    This is Kristin Hersh's new band (of Throwing Muses) and they are awesome. They are much harder and louder, more punk, than Throwing Muses, and really tight. It's always hard describing music except by example, so I guess the best I can come up with right now is that the Nirvana song "Territorial Pissings" would not have been out of place in their set.

    You might also like Sleater-Kinney, if you haven't discovered them already. (They've been around a long, long time.)

    damn, I knew that was going to be a good show. me and being too damn busy with other crap. I wonder when they're coming back to town?
    Their bassists was in a band called Count Zero (and before that Think Tree) back in boston a number of years ago - the current configuration was on tour with us when I traveled with the dresden dolls last year. I met him when we played in LA and I've been meaning to check out his current project since.

    Sometimes the music world feels very small...
