No, not another post about what I'm wearing today, although my pants are fantastic. Going to see the one and only Clutch tonight at the best venue in NYC, The Bowery Ballroom. If you've never seen the mighty Clutch live, you are missing out on one of the many reasons why they are one of the only pure rock n' roll bands left on this planet.
I've seen them just jam for an hour and say goodnight while opening for Limp Bizkit in 1998. I've seen them play for three hours, only playing songs from recent albums. I don't know what the hell to expect tonight. Who cares. It promises to rock. For the little money I have, I'd say "Spacegrass" is one of the most badass songs, ever.
Check out all of their albums right now. For a beginner, I'd start with their self-titled LP (1995) and then move onward to 2004's "Blast Tyrant". This year's "From Beale Street To Oblivion" is as solid as rock gets, boasting tons of bluesy riffs and groove-laden drumming, all whilist rocking your goddamn socks off.
The Mob Goes Wild. Indeed. Bam Margera directed the video. It's the best thing he will ever do.
