Dealer, Owl, Love Moon

Thursday, March 30, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm | $8

“Dealer rip. It’s hard to peg a certain genre on these guys, so we’ll just say they rock and they rock hard. Their album Billionaire Boys Club drops in early 2017 and it has already won next year’s award for best album cover. You have to love a hard rock band that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. These guys are clearly having fun and we applaud them for that. What you should take seriously are Dealer’s killer riffs, grungy sound, and caustic vocals. These dudes have an awesome sound that is like the soundtrack to putting out cigarettes on your tender flesh. Dealer are the audio equivalent of a six day bender filled with cotton candy and violence.” BENJAMIN BAILEY, NERDIST

“I use the phrase “rock n’ roll” fairly frequently, describing everything from grimy crust-punk to swaggering, blaring death metal. This time, however, the band in question call up what is perhaps the most true instance of me describing something as “rock n’ roll” in many many reviews. The album I’m looking at is the self titled full-length of San Fransisco Sabbath-enthusiasts Owl, released late last year, and filled to the brim with rocking goodness. – Heavy Metal Spotlight

“Torn from the fertile soil of the Midwest, the Love Moon trio found themselves transplanted in the Bay Area where they hit the ground running. While their band name could easily be the name of a Care Bear, there’s nothing cute and cuddly about their music. Listening to Love Moon is like standing alone on a rooftop on an overcast day and watching lightning strikes off in the distance. It’s heavy yet intelligent, gloomy yet contemplative. On Clouded Bliss, Love Moon delves deep and bares teeth. Touches of punk, sludge, and psych are vindicated with crippling bass work, explosive percussion and, most importantly, bong-rattling, soul-crushing, bowel-shaking riffs. Riffs for miles. Riffs for days. Riffs as far as the eye can see. There are a million bands cranking out records these days but what Love Moon does on Clouded Bliss is something truly special.” – Nico Selm – Drink or Die Records
