Tea House show

May 17th, 2012 · No Comments · By

Tonight’s concert at the Tea Bazaar should be a lot of fun; it includes some bands whom I’ve heard a lot about, and heard a few recordings by, but have yet to check out live.

High Noon are a new-ish local group, whose members (all students, I think?) I’ve each met over the past several months; I’ve heard their demo, and it’s pretty great; understated fuzzy garage rock with crisp, flat vocals that are a great match for their catchy tunes and just-noisy-enough guitar parts.  They actually remind me a great deal of the fantastic early-90’s cville band Pro Rock S (any readers remember them?) except that they are 20 years younger and have a girl singer.

Surfing are a band from Harrisonburg, also relatively recent / young I think, although they suddenly seem to be everywhere, touring around the state and up+down the east coast, and getting mentioned by folks with good taste. They play fuzzy, yelpy, reverby garage-punk, and I like the stuff I’ve by them a lot, too.

The third band on the bill, Kilos, I have not heard of before now, but they seem like they’d be a good fit for those other two. The show is $5 and starts around 9pm! I have no idea what order the bands are playing in, but if you like one you’ll probably like the other two, so… come check it out!
