Plan 9, Jungle Dogs, Chasers and The Color Guard (we play at 9:00)
PLAN 9: The swirling, mesmerizing effect of four guitars recalls the
best of the late '60s and gives able support to Eric Stumpo's emotional
vocals. Plan 9 has released more than 10 LPs on noted labels like Voxx,
New Rose, Pink Dust, Enigma and Restless. http://plan9ri.com/
South County acts JUNGLE DOGS and CHASERS will pound ska and sand
respectively...(trance psychedellic, ska punk and beer chaser
surftones) ... THE COLOR GUARD layer ornate madrigal harmonies over
addictive metal guitar riffs with spikes of wit. They gleefully pitch
together Heart, the Pixies, Siouxsie, the Mars Volta, Kate Bush, Queen,
and yes, even Jethro Tull--and light the pile aflame into a bonfire of
heavy, trippy melodic glory.
