This Wednesday’s Lightning Bolt at Gabe’s was one of the loudest shows I’ve seen in quite some time. It was also one of the best. If you haven’t yet had a chance to read A.C. Hawley’s preview for the show, it’s still a relevant read, and perhaps even more so if you happened to attend the show itself. You’ll realize that Hawley’s proselytizing was entirely accurate.
Living Ghosts, Supersonic Piss, and The Tanks blasted through great sets just before Lightning Bolt methodically set up their mountainous rig and blew the roof off the place. We have plenty of photos from the show inside, so come on in and check them out!
The Lightning Bolt show on Wednesday is more than just a simple show. It’s an opportunity to see one of the most powerful bands on the face of the planet. Two men named Brian making so much noise and sending people into a frenzy. This show goes beyond performance and into the realm of a spiritual experience. I will try to explain why.
Rock aficionados take note, Gabe’s is hosting an all-ages show this Wednesday that, as Hott would say, is guaranteed to destroy. Supersonic Piss, Living Ghost and The Tanks are combining forces with Rhode Island’s Lightning Bolt to form one solid mass of pure rock hysteria.
