Live from Bellingham

It's just before ten at the Radio Room and Fkenal’s ending their set. A dude with long hair bums me a Top rolled cigarette. His name is Andy and his band Sugar Sugar Sugar is touring from Bellingham with friends Lozen. A few dates in Chihuahua, Mexico, then to Austin for SXSW.

Radio Room looks like an artsy dungeon. "What'll it be, my man?" The bartender cracks open a Pabst. Andy launches into their set on bass. Lupe on drums stabs at the hi-hat peddle with bare feet, her fists thrusting to the sky. Sugar Sugar Sugar licks the sweaty spot between the mammaries of Black Sabbath and T. Rex.

Lozen, a badass chick duo, start a song: "This one's for the ladies...you know who you are." A shuffle of indie Western licks, chugging metal riffs, and chord-heavy bass jams that sound like something a world-class matadora would cue up on the record player while stirring a tequila sunrise after a close brush with death in the ring.

Locals SecretFunClub sound like a dying prehistoric beast. Athletic Automaton, Lightning Bolt. Drummer Sal, cofounder of Three One G records, says: "Here we go. It's quick."
