HEMLOCK TAVERN NEW YEARS EVE BASH with Lecherous Gaze, Pins of Light, Ancient Rites, and DJ Ballz2DeWall!!! ADV. TIX ON SALE! LECHEROUS GAZE A maelstromic mixture of heavy rock riffage, punk snarl attitude, and Zep-like attention to detail, comes across as a heshers record collection melted together into one crushing slab of volcanic rock and roll.PINS OF LIGHT San Franciscos Pins of Light reside in that murky musical shadow-territory of the nearly unclassifiable. They craft a brutal and intricate mlange of metal, punk and prog that isnt quite any of those things. Pins of Lights most progressive moments are more Motrhead than Mothers of Invention; their metal is more Pink Floyd than it is Judas Priest; the elements of punk are a driving fistfight thats entirely the bands own. Singer and bassist Shane Baker, guitarists Jake Palladino and Ravi Durbeej, and drummer Phil Becker come previously (and currently) from such SF institutions as Dead and Gone, Night After Night, Hightower and Triclops (among a slew of others). The groups debut album II was recorded by Kurt Schlegel (Jello Biafra, Melvins, I Am Spoonbender) and Phil Manley (TransAm, The Fucking Champs) at Lucky Cat Recording and mixed by Becker in the bands hometown.ANCIENT RITES Rock skate metal punk supreme!DJ BALLZ 2 DEWALLBrown Paper Tickets adv. tix link here!
