Who: Bugs in the Dark
From: Brooklyn, NY
Where: The Underground Garage
When: Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Total Score: 8/10

[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

Style: Garage rock, grunge, punk.

Crowd: Bugs in the Dark were the last band of the night, going on at around 1:30 am. The club was packed; everyone was well sauced, but attentive.

Technicalities: The volume on the mikes was too high.

Sex appeal/image: Stylized black and red outfits, not matching, but complementary.

Memorable song/moment: “Serpents and Wine” was raw and powerful. I got chills during Karen Rockower’s ghostly howls.

Comments: This three-piece has a great sound, very dirty, and raw. Their single is much cleaner, and looses a lot of that energy, but live, they’re definitely worth checking out.
