Wild. An appropriate, one-word review of a Twin Peaks show. Could just leave it at that and let you learn from experience, which I hope you do soon, but feel the need to elaborate just a bit more.
I checked out the Chicago outfit at SXSW during the Culture Collide showcase after friends gushed about these wild and crazy guys. They blew my doors, thrashing about on the small stage, which they seem very accustomed to, given their length of venturing ‘round the festival and club circuit for months on end. I ran into some of the dudes from SXSW’s tech team after the show and they were in the same state of awe.
For the night at Canadian Music Week at Horseshoe Tavern, they played right before Fat White Family, another rock band known far and wide for their live show. The Twin Peak kids more than held their own, strumming through sultry, summer tracks and then exploding into “Good Lovin’”, one of the tracks off their sophomore release, Wild Onion.
