A scuzzy fun rock show at Boot and Saddle with Miniature Tigers and more
Three scuzzy rock acts set up shop at a packed Boot & Saddle last Saturday evening. NYC based garage rock quartet, Total Slacker opened the show. Their fun punk rockyness and energetic vibe got the crowd movin’ just in time for the next act, Brooklyn’s Bear Hands. The crowd grew in size to watch the electronic indie pop group, catching the attention of fan girls standing up front gazing longingly at the band members. By the time the second headliner came on, Miniature Tigers, it was a mix of poppy exuberance and one dismayed crowd member who shouted “Sorry but Bear Hands is better!” Definitely not cool. The lead vocalist Charlie Brand though, didn’t let the member’s comment sway him from rockin’ out with the rest of the crowd, walking through people and handing off the microphone so they could sing along to the lyrics.
