Buttercup were wonderful at The Middle East Downstairs this past Friday night. The band kicked up the perfect blend of melody, harmony, grit and twang to help Pipeline! celebrate 25 years of bringing the best local music to the city’s airwaves.
Slim Jim And The Mad Cows call what they do “Country Fried Metal Rock.” Makes sense. What else would you call playing classic heavy tunes in the style of the old country legends?* These guys had me grinnin’ from ear to ear.
* Turns out this also could have been called “Maybe My Favorite Thing In The Whole World.”
