Last night, I saw an excellent new punk band called Strokin’ Aces. They’re just starting to gig consistently but they’re already really good. Punk isn’t my standard cup of tea but their musicality was obvious. I kept hoping that they’d chill on the in between song guitar tones because people wanted to clap and cheer but there wasn’t quite enough space between songs to do that. That’s a minor bitch of course. Strokin’ Aces played some fun, interesting music really well. I’m definitely planning to show up to watch them at a Battle of the Bands in Indy in a few weeks at Birdy’s (the site of an incredibly tight Prince aftershow a few years ago).
