NadaMucho.com Presents: Swamp Country Punk at Chop Suey

NadaMucho.com Presents:
An Evening of Swamp-Country Punk Rock at Chop Suey
w/ Mayor West, The Riff Brokers and I CAN LICK ANY SOB IN THE HOUSE
Wednesday, September 17th
Tickets $6

Every once in a while, I still pinch myself. The fact Portland’s I Can Lick Any SOB in the House is playing a NadaMucho.com-sponsored event just doesn’t seem real. “Walk Across Texas” is a timeless classic that immediately became a favorite of our staff, and listening to tracks from either of their albums – the stunning 2001 debut Creepy Little Noises or this year’s more politically-charged Put Here to Bleed – indicates I Can Lick Any SOB is one of only two country-tinged rock bands out there that matter (the other being The Drive-By Truckers, of course).

Every once in a while, I still pinch myself. The fact Portland’s I Can Lick Any SOB in the House is playing a NadaMucho.com-sponsored event just doesn’t seem real. “Walk Across Texas” is a timeless classic that immediately became a favorite of our staff, and listening to tracks from either of their albums – the stunning 2001 debut Creepy Little Noises or this year’s more politically-charged Put Here to Bleed – indicates I Can Lick Any SOB is one of only two country-tinged rock bands out there that matter (the other being The Drive-By Truckers, of course).

Alex at In Music We Trust, the band’s label, assures us the imaginary author of the emails we’ve exchanged over the past few weeks to set this event up is, in fact, the band’s mastermind and frontman Mike D. He also confirmed the rumor that ICLASOB is indeed coming up to headline NadaMucho.com’s first “Alt-Country” showcase and third event in the air-conditioned brilliance of local venue Chop Suey.

Opening the evening’s festivities is Mayor West, a Seattle outfit also recommended by Mr. D who employs the use of banjo, mandolin and other more traditional country instrumentation. Even sweeter, Mike D and the boys are bringing up the mysterious Riff Brokers, a band with a name that evokes such familiarity it’s frustrating we can’t actually find any of their music or even information on the band to tell you more about them. We can tell you the band comes recommended by Mike D, which bodes well, and In Music We Trust simply doesn’t associate with crappy artists.

Besides, what we can tell you about Mayor West and The Riff Brokers doesn’t really matter. You’ll want to be there when I Can Lick Any SOB takes the stage (Thursday morning work engagements be damned); After they run through “Saturday,” “In The Mud” and, if we’re especially good, maybe even their cover of Skynyrd’s “Tuesday’s Gone,” you’ll be as much in love with the band as we are.
