More things you missed

So on Thursday, in Cincinnati, there was some serious face rocking being done by the boys of Swig Tooth.

Yeah, you know, that band that used to be Autumn Under Echoes.

Guitarist Chris Skrobot, who was my mf'ing hero back in May, is on the road with Pat Green rocking thousands of faces ... so Swig Tooth is reduced to a power trio of Aaron Tashjian handing guitars and vocals, Mark Nye on the bass and vocals, and Mark Stepro on the skins showing people how it's done.

And unlike Aaron's solo shows in July ... this time around they're plugged in ... and making noise.

And sounding great.

Because as Rowdy Roddy Piper said as "Nada" in his amazingly great performance in "They Live" ... they're here to kick ass and chew bubblegum.

And they're all out of bubblegum.

Thursday night in Cincinnati was the loudest and most rocking show I've seen Swig Tooth ... or ANY band ... perform in a long, long time.

They came out with Afterglow and blew the roof off the place with every other song, ending 45 minutes later, covered in sweat, with the show-stopping "Dirty Numbers."

Friday, Little Brothers, 'round Midnight, after the X-Rated Cowboys warm things up ... prepare to have your face rocked off.

That's all I'm saying.
