The Yawpers with Blackfoot Gypsies
Blackbird Hall at the Flamingo
Wed Jan 16th doors 8pm
The Yawpers (Denver, CO)
Bloodshot Records’ band The Yawpers craft tunes that are engrossed in creative context. Some might recall edges of the mid-1900s Delta blues, but only if those lived-in riffs were played by the MC5, broadcast through booming stadium speakers and drenched with pounds of fuzzy distortion and full-throttled punk rock energy. They conduct parallel frequencies with the ferocious and raw proletarian roots of Uncle Tupelo, the burning-hot thrashings and cavernous sonic space of Hot Snakes, and mix in derisive scrutiny that brings to mind Ween or the Minutemen (and might we add that Cook is the spitting image of D. Boon).
Blackfoot Gypsies (Nashville, TN)
The Blackfoot Gypsies have unleashed a set of original roadhouse rockin’ tunes with To the Top, on Plowboy Records. The Nashville, Tennessee based powerhouse quartet demonstrate raucous energy and soul on this collection delivering their take on white-knuckled rock’n’roll.
