This show was fan-fucking-tastic. Two of these bands visit Bellingham a couple of times per year. Grenades brought their usual energetic, noisy, spaced out rock but it had an extra oomf tonight. Lozen is the most adorable band in the loud rock scene that is so booming in the PNW. These two ladies can make you fall in love with them by watching them throughout the set or crush you until you turn to a tiny poof of dust. Bad. Ass.Ladies. My buddy and I were smoking a bowl after their set and the drummer joined us while loading the van. She is a doll and you all should check out their music. Then it was time for SUMAC. This is a band that has Brian Cook (Botch, Russian Circles, These Arms Are Snakes), Aaron Turner (Isis, founded Hydra Head) and Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists). Their new record, The Deal, has been an intense one to digest. After seeing them live I can officially put this one on my favorite of the year list. It was my favorite set I have seen in over a year. And I have seen a lot of sets that I am in love with. Brain massage to the max. If you get a chance to see them play you need to make that happen. Everything that Brian Cook has been a part of I have loved. The one band I haven't heard yet is Botch but that is my next one to check out. Gah. Fuck. Bed time is now. Boomshackalacka.

Is anybody interested in trying to start this again? Fig and Kymess got me thinking that it should probably happen. If so, do you have any themes we should go off of or just whatever you want to write about? Anybody want first week?
