Snake River play psychedelic rock show at Slice

A decent sized crowd was on hand to listen to some rock and roll courtesy of local rock band Biloxi Parish and Regina psychedelic country band Snake River plus an Ant and an Atom on Wednesday, Aug. 30.

 I missed Sean Warkentin aka An Ant and An Atom, but arrived in time to get my eardrums blown out by Biloxi Parish.

  The local rock band, who I saw playing as a duo the last couple of times, were back up to a quartet with bassist Caden Boyce and lead guitarist Taran Duncan adding to the impassioned vocals, rhythm guitar and anguished energy of Zach Passey and thunderous drumming of Cole Howg. They made enough noise for two or three bands, with a bass heavy set of intense rock and roll. Passey whirled and gyrated around the stage, tossing his guitar around and writhing like every one of his nerve endings were on fire.

They ended with a couple of their more exceptional originals “Odetta and X“Coyote.”

Regina’s Snake River also played a loud set  of weird, delay laden, psychedelic rock. The biting Strat of John De Gennaro, solid drums of Dustin  Gamracy and bass of Jeff M drowning out vocalist/ rhythm guitarist Christopher Sleightholm, who gave the band the air of a louder, psychedelic  and more rootsy Radiohead with a touch of Pink Floyd. DeGennaro created weird ambient sounds with a green glowing Ebow he held over his guitar strings to create sinister sounds.
