Prior to my road trip, I had been to Boulder, Co millions and millions of time to see the family I have there. Boulder is cool and I liked bumming around Pearl Street when I was a kid and flirting with the homeless street performers, but as I got older and started having better taste in everything I got tired of the non-stop hippies and jam bands and never really saw any trace of punk or indie.
Well, when I was there in November to stay with my brother, I had the great pleasure of finding out that Circle Pit was playing at Astro Land, a hole-in-the-wall new DIY venue run by one of the dudes from School Knights.
The show was good in general, but I especially want to talk about Lust-Cats of the Gutters, an awesome punk two piece of awesome chicks.
Now, anyone who knows me knows that I tend to not be too into two-pieces (though there are some notable exceptions), but I was super excited by Lust-Cats.
They were hot. They were punk. They were loud. They were angry. They were funny. All girl groups should be like that.
I hope they get their act together and tour through NY, but until then, check them out...
