If you like loud, fast, riff heavy rock n’ roll, better make your way down to Cafe 9 this Friday, March 26th. Appearing will be Philadelphia’s purveyors of greasy-spoon hard rock American Speedway as well as New Haven’s own riff-kings The Vultures. American Speedway, who have a new album set to arrive this summer on Prophase Music, bring on their rock assault with punk intensity, volleying from one song to next like they were, well, on a speedway. My first impression of their music brought up memories of similarly minded ’90s garage-rock bands like Gas Huffer or the Supersuckers: lots of guitars, lots of grime, lots of ‘rawk’ persona and with a bit more edge than your standard hard rock band. Joining American Speedway will be New Haven faves The Vultures. Although just as capable of churning out the punk rawk as American Speedway, The Vultures take a more cultured approach mixing in elements of jazz, metal and surf-rock to the madness. If you haven’t caught them yet, shame on you; here’s your chance at redemption.
