If this show billing looks familiar to you, it should. This the one and only intact billing left from the canceled BAR/Sundazed series formerly brought to you by Shaki Presents. Originally scheduled for January 17th, this show has taken on a second life of sorts on a new date (Saturday, February 27th) and at a new venue (Rudy’s). Although exponentially smaller than the backroom at BAR, Rudy’s shouldn’t dampen the effect these bands will have on their unsuspecting New Haven audience. NYC trio Zevious offers an interesting mix of jazz and instrumental free-form rock. The band seamlessly flows from one slippery riff to another, churning out complex melodies, solos and arrangements with abandon. They instantly demand your full attention and never let go. This show will be the band’s only CT stop on their March East Coast/Midwest tour, so make sure you stop by.
Joining Zevious, will be New Haven supergroup Old Man Lady Luck. Featuring members of The Vultures, Humanoid, The Black Noise Scam, Murdervan and Bloarzeyd, Old Man Lady Luck mirror Zevious’ penchant for free-form instrumental rock although not on such a manic level. Their dynamic arises from a shared love of the ‘loud-quiet-loud’ formula, launching from subtlety to bludgeoning riffage in a matter of seconds. As far as pairings go, Old Man Lady Luck offsets Zevious’ overt jazz tendencies almost perfectly, offering some seriously inventive stoner/experimental rock in the process.
For fans of free-form instrumental rock or for those wondering what direction the Sundazed series would have followed had it not been so unceremoniously ended, look no further.
