White Dynomite @ The Middle East Downstairs 6.19.2013

OK, let’s get something clear. Not only am I a huge fan of the music we’ve got coming out of Boston, but I’m a junkie for high octane rock ‘n’ roll from Sweden. As soon as I heard about the Imperial State Electric show at The Middle East, I freaked out and frantically snatched up tickets. Not only would I get to see a band I never thought I’d get the chance to see live*, but there were three Boston openers ready to give ’em a run for their money.

White Dynomite got things started on a night that would be full-tilt from start to finish. These guys are too much fun.

* Oh, and they were amazing.

White Dynomite @ Radio 1.4.2013

Ever since I found out White Dynomite exists I’ve been itching to catch one of their sets. These guys are all punk bombast and soulful swagger. I dig it.

Cropduster @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 7.3.2012

Cropduster grooves like the outer edges of a whirlpool. It’s a slow, steady draw that eventually plunges you into darkness. Their songs weigh heavy on your soul as you go under for good.

Cropduster have a groove. It’s a dark groove. It’s The Stones at their most stoned. It’s early Pink Floyd on a bad trip. It’s Sleep without the sludge. Cream without the bombast. Damn.
