MUSIC: Indie, Garage & Punk Rock Bring The Noise To Dusk

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

 

Riot grrrl punk duo Slutever played held the stage with intensity and vigor this weekend, blizzard or no blizzard.

A bunch of the streets weren't plowed, houses still didn't have power and black ice was abundant in Providence, but that didn't keep people from checking out an awesome show at Dusk this past Sunday. Local booking & promotions company General Assembly put on a show featuring Isle of Rhodes from Brooklyn, Slutever from Philadelphia, local avant-garde noise punks The Universes and Boston's Fat Creeps, each band showcased their musical excellence on the stage to the fullest. Warm vibes and a good time was in store to round out a hectic weekend for all.

Isle Of Rhodes

First up were Isle Of Rhodes, a two piece band consisting of drums and a piano that blew my mind. Reminding me of a mix between Marco Benevento's psychedelic tones and Placebo's sheer emphasis, this duo was extremely enjoyable to watch. "Tic Toc", "So In Love", "Islands", "Oceans", "Perfect Operation", "Rain" and "Eyes Like The Sun" encompassed an amazing performance that makes me wan't to keep an eye on these guys for a while. Isle Of Rhodes have their debut album All Rivers and Oceans currently out, I absolutely want to see them again and I'll definitely grab a copy of the album.

Fat Creeps

Fat Creeps went up next with their loud & dirty garage pop rock, it's always cool when you have a female guitarist and bassist alternating on vocals along with a kickass drummer bringing the noise. "Party", "Secrets", "Daydreaming", "I've Got", "Back To School", "Blue", "He Comes In Loudly", "Nancy Drew" and "700 Parts" had the audience in a trance and definitely impressed the hell out of me. Fat Creeps currently have their self-titled EP available, a must have for any rock & roller alive today.

Slutever

Riot grrrl punk duo Slutever had a lot of intensity and vigor, they also exuded an old-school Alt-Rock vibe that I totally dug. Starting off with a stunning rendition of Hole's "Violet" then into "Teen Mom", "1994", "Spit" and a great cover of Nirvana's "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle" nearly blew the roof off the joint. Slutever has a 7" available titled Pretend To Be Nice as well as a cassette titled Pussycat, next time they hit your neighborhood make sure to grab whatever you can.

The Universes

One of the most unique bands you'll ever hear and see, The Universes finished off the show with one of the best performances I've seen from them so far. Consisting of Bryan Reynolds on drums, Jeremy Joubert on baritone guitar, Lauren McGough on keys and backing vocals and Dusty Rooney on lead vocals and guitar, their sound is filled with all kinds of distortion and all kinds of rock that one minute will make you think of The Pixies, then another minute you'll be thinking of Lightning Bolt and then your mind will be blown. "Goodnight Mrs. Nothingpants", "Cleaning Lady", "Goldmine", "Rowboat", "Speaking In Colors" and "Face The Sensation" was simply ridiculous, ending with Rooney playing his guitar while galavanting in the crowd. The Universes came out with a split LP they did with fellow Providence band Pixels, with their side entitled Lorenzo Music. It's music straight from the heart of The Creative Capital that promises to be unlike anything you've ever listened to. It's always a good time at Dusk, log on to duskprovidence.com to find out whats going on next at one of the coolest little places to see a show.
