Local bands rock the stage with a touch of noise and garage rock

E-mail Print PDF

It was a time for some rock and or roll at the Slice, Dec. 14 with a  whole passel of local bands.
 While I missed Johnny Greenshields’ band Johnny G and The Yeah Dads playing the Slice. Photo by Richard Amerythe Spots, I caught most of the set of a hot new, young band called Advertisement.

They played a tight set of noise rock and punk music strongly influenced by the likes of  Sonic Youth and the Pixies.

They got a lot of applause from the enthusiastic crowd.

They were a tough act to follow for local band the Yeah Dads, who played a big, loud set of energetic ’60s inspired garage rock.

The keyboards played a more prominent role in this show than in previous shows, with the organ sounds bringing the audience right back to the psychedelic ’60s.

The Ruby Plumes finished the night of with their usual set of old punk, garage rock and original music.
