Since Mika Miko is splitting, All Night Drug Prowling Wolves is making a run at being the best band with two lead singers. Well, it looks that way in this picture. Truth is, Will Greene just made a guest appearance during the Wolves' last song, which wrapped up a solid set of rock music that sounds like a cross between The Jam's more Motown influenced material and The Clash (who, of course, are the source of the band's name). The Wolves drew a pretty sizable crowd last night at 529 at what was both a 7" release party and the band's last gig in town for a while.
As a side note, isn't it kind of cool the way Tom Cheshire is almost always singing with a cup or glass in hand and he manages to not spill all of his drink?
One man band extraordinaire, scene mainstay, and soundtrack music virtuoso Jeffrey Butzer opened. I think I enjoyed it more when I saw him play with a full band at Kenny Crucial's birthday party back in the summer, but this was still good stuff. To sum it all up, Jeffrey told a couple of intentionally bad jokes and played grown-up music that wasn't boring.
On second was G.G. King, as they played their best old material ("Adult Rock", "Drug Zoo", "Witching Hour", etc.) and a few new ones. It was aurally pleasing and photogenic to boot.
