The Only Children.
White Water was jumpin last night. Lots of folks, even in the early hours of the night, and three crack bands. The hardcore Fayetteville outfit the Counterlife
opened. Gangsta, the drummer, who my Fayetteville buddy tells me has been flailing away for years, was hugely entertaining in an aerobic-Lightning Bolt-kind of way.
After they played, I got a chance to visit with lead singer Roger Barrett, who's been organizing and promoting in Fayetteville for years. He's running Robot Lake Records
now and has albums from the Counterlife, Doug DeLuca and Tippy Canoe coming out early this summer. I'll keep you posted.The Only Children
, from Lawrence, not Canada as I suggested earlier, played cut-and-paste 70s FM radio, but in a smart, really winning way. The bassist, whose picture is after the jump, made all the rock boys go crazy. She's been around for a while and played with Juliana Hatfield in Some Girls. She's also married to the lead singer. Hear and download the Only Children's "Tired of This Town" here
Course the Easys
shredded in typically awesome fashion, but dudes night out and leftover tiredness from this weekend conspired to force me to the bed mid-set.
