Here are some images from the Hipshot Killer and Electric Lungs show over at Davey’s a couple weeks back. If I recall, the Lungs were shooting a video that night around the bar featuring a guy in a heart costume and another with a giant afro. There might have been drinking involved.
Back on Friday the 13th, the Electric Lungs released their latest full-length album, “Don’t Be Ashamed of the Way You Were Made” at Davey’s Uptown. Hair metal throwback Bone Spur, spooky rockers the Haunted Creepies, and Kodascope provided support. There’s audio of pretty much the entire show for your listening pleasures.
I would also suggest you go and get a copy of the Lungs new album. It has been stuck in my CD player since I put it in.

Back on Dec 12, The fine folks at KKFI hosted a party for Mark Manning in honor of his 10 years of hosting the “Wednesday Midday Medley” on KKFI. It was well attended event of music fans, friends, family and well-wishers.
Over at Harling’s a couple weeks back, they opened up the large rear room and had a hard rocking, punk fueled show featuring a great lineup. We headed over to Harling’s after catching the Mountain Sprout show at Davey’s. We managed to catch the Electric Lungs, Mace Batons, and Philistines sets.
The sound is pretty decent in the back room and plenty of space for a good crowd. It was a really good turnout with folks sticking around for most all of the bands sets. It was Philistines drummer Steve Gardels’ birthday. Jameson and cupcakes were passed around for well wishers.
Back on Nov 15, we caught the early show featuring Mountain Sprout at Davey’s Uptown. It was a good sized crowd for a pretty chilly Saturday night. The band’s lineup has shuffled a couple times over the last year. Fiddle player Blaine Thiebaud left the band to be replaced by Mike Schembre. Blaine’s brother Dean Thiebaud has also permanently joined the band on guitar. Overall, the hard-partying, no-holds-barred style of shows that have come to define Mountain Sprout over the years have been toned down quite a bit. The tunes are still solid, but the overall feel of the shows lack that same substance fueled crazy energy. It’s not bad, just different.
They touched on many Mountain Sprout standards through the two hour show. In addition, they performed several tracks of their recently released Long Time Comin’.
