Young Coyotes and Fiery Furnaces on a Tuesday night

by on Nov.25, 2009, under Concert Reviews

The Bluebird was cold and quiet on Tuesday night as a dedicated few came out for Young Coyotes and Fiery Furnaces. With a rather unassuming attitude everything played through with a sort of simple, laid-back vibe.

Young Coyotes started the night up by playing what they were calling “Possibly our last show.” Although unclear about whether any other subsequent appearances are in the works, it did not appear that Young Coyotes would be calling it quits for all of eternity. In fact, they played a couple of new songs which I though were better than some of their previous material. “Hammering” showed a certain maturity both musically and lyrically. Overall, the set was drenched in reverb and a superb way to start the evening. Also noteworthy: Zach Tipton’s ‘fro has gone from great to epic.

Fiery Furnaces took the stage and I did not know what to expect. Having only seen a few videos of the group online I was unprepared for the delightfully fuzzy guitars and constant time-shifts. While the near-constant change-ups kept the growing crowd on its toes, they eventually became a little predictable and thus some people started loosing interest in the music. The Fiery Furnaces set as a whole was still quite enjoyable: a rowdy mix of blues, surf, jazz, punk, and rock.

Concert Calendar Update

Hey everyone, here are a few shows of note:

TONIGHT: Young Coyotes and Fiery Furnaces (Bluebird, 8pm). Rumored to be Young Coyotes last show, if you haven’t seen this dynamic duo yet this might be your last chance. While you’re at it, download our compilation, they’re on there with “When I Was In The Fire.”

December 4: Take, Candy Claws, & Old Radio (Lion’s Lair, 9pm). See Candy Claws live and in person (as opposed to their global internet tour). Also, Old Radio puts on quite an enjoyable show (not to mention this one is only $5, so don’t miss it). Celebrate National Cookie Day in style!

December 12: Hot Congress CD Release Show (Oriental, 8pm). A few weeks back we covered the Hot Congress Prevue Party and picked up a copy of their very first compilation. Well, now they’re giving it a proper celebration and release. Performing that night will be Achille Lauro, Vitamins, Fissure Mystic, and Action Packed Thrill Ride.

December 12: The Wheel with Houses, Bad Weather California, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake, Taun Taun and more! (Bluebird, 8pm). If there was ever a show that combined a bunch of my favorite local bands it would be this one. Unfortunately you’ll have to choose because it’s also on Dec. 12.

December 18: Flashbulb Fires CD Release Show (Hi-Dive, 10pm). We’ve got a full review of this group’s first full-length Glory coming next week and I can tell you that it is definitely worth checking out. Also playing that night: Danielle Ate The Sandwich.

December 31: Paper Bird & These United States New Year’s Party (Hi-Dive, 9pm). Ring in the New Year with a little bit Paper Bird’s brand of “joyful music.” Also rock out to the alt-indie goodness that is These United States.
