STONER ROCK UPDATE



I finally got my stoner rock on last month with a show featuring Madison's own Droids Attack (see video above, sorry for the lousy quality) and Lo Pan from Ohio. I hadn't heard of the latter before, but they were excellent, with a Gary Floyd-like belter for a lead singer. It's good to see the Midwest represent with the rawk chops, but sadly the audience was pretty small. With our great Scandinavian heritage, you'd think more people would appreciate stoner rock, since so many bands (Lowrider, The Quill, Dozer, Grand Magus, etc.) are from Sweden. I love Monster Magnet, The Sword, and Fu Manchu, but I wish more bands who were not famous enough to be on the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack came to town.

So, if anyone is going to see Karma To Burn tomorrow, please throw the horns for me, as I'm too tired from my birthday weekend to go out on a Monday night.
