The Slobbies

I don’t quite remember our first show with them, but The Slobbies have always been a great time with some truly original music. It seems so seldom lately, to find a band with an original sound and style, there’s so many copies out there; but the Slobbies deliver something absolutely new and different with their brand of Slob Rock. When I think about their live set recently, when we toured with them at Paul’s Pub in Methuen, it’s amazing how they got the crowd going. You can’t help but scream back lyrics, and dance around.

If you were to ask Willey I’m sure he’ld say, “This is Slobby TV, motherf*cker!!” Indeed it is. The Slobbies take it to the next level, in addition to some really great music they also showcase a great line-up of “Sweded” movies, as well as their already awesome music videos. I think it’s great when a band really uses their bandwidth for such creative things. See The Slobbies in such classics as Fear and Loathing in Las VegasDumb and Dumber, Stand By Me, Paranormal Activity and others.

Tung

Tung is a gritty, hard rocking band from Rhode Island, with mesmerizing distorted guitar hooks and awesome shrieking rock vocals. I believe my first show with them was a few years back now, at a place called K.C.’S Tap in Pawtucket, RI. This band is bound to leave you breathless. Between Leah’s high octane vocal rhymes and David Lyne’s distorted, flanged guitar-shred this is a band that’s sure to leave you amazed! If you get a chance, check them out next time they come to your local venue. Here’s a youtube video of them playing “Tung Like Water” At KC”s, and here’s one of “She Said”. Enjoy!

Planetoid

What can I say about Planetoid? Simply the best. No one melts faces quite like them. I first heard of them years back. I remember checking out Lord of This Asteroid way back, I forget how I found them, I think it was on Myspace. We had a couple comments back and forth. Fast forward years later, an avid fan invited me to one of their shows at Ralph’s Diner. I was instantly hooked. Weather they bring their Go-Go-hoolah-dancer-affiliates from Earth, or just rock the Milky Way themselves, Planetoid is sure to melt your face.

Recently, I had a chance to check them out at Ralph’s Diner, near two years since the first time I had seen them. The place was packed, it was pandemonium! The lights, the face melting rock! On the same stage that, legend has it, Alice in Chains and Black Flag once graced back in their day; Planetoid descended to rock!
