Something Like Sound

Lil’ Slugger at Rhinoceropolis

by on May.24, 2010, under Concert Reviews

The release show for Slugger Comics #1 was a night of raw energy. The small warehouse venue-space at Rhinoceropolis was packed out and pulsing with each beat.

The Good Old Fashioned Sinners, who had been on a hiatus of sorts, reunited for the evening, bringing with them a healthy dose of volume. The core of their set was definitely driven by intricate and intense drumming and a generous amount of synthesizer.

Hot White played one of the most punk sets I have ever witnessed. The high-energy trio was raw and kicking, not taking crap from anybody. In fact, at the end of their set, someone in the crowd started yelling for another song. Their response: throw a can of beer at the bastard.

Lil’ Slugger really played up their comic book release by wearing paper cartoon masks and outfits similar to how they are drawn in Slugger Comics #1. In addition to their outfits, they also had a walrus and squid along for the ride. Their musical set itself was a mixture of art, rock, and occasional dancing. As a fun bit of trivia, guitarist/singer Joey Wiley (pictured above in red) is a fellow CSM student and more living proof that engineers can, in fact, be quite musical.
