Pink Mountaintops: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 21 2014

The retro trend in modern rock continues with Pink Mountaintops. Bandleader Steve McBean, also the man behind the noisy folk-metal band Black Mountain, assembled a diverse cast of indie rock superstars to create his latest opus, Get Back. The record dives deep into rock's traditional preoccupation with sex and drugs and teenage excess to scramble together sounds from '50s doo-wop and proto-R&B to '90s grunge for a head-crushing, guitar-fueled exploration of our most exhilarating, uncontainable impulses. If the live band can create half of the energy of the album, you'll be in for an unforgettable evening. Opening act Giant Drag, fronted by the celebrated Annie Hardy, is just as intense in its own low-key manner.
