Last Friday, Hang Fire offered up a stacked lineup of local acts to kick the weekend off with a bang.
First up were The Wave Slaves, who, much as their name would imply, rocked out with some classic surf rock. The 4 piece outfit are a total throwback to the driving bass lines and intricate guitar work seen in classic surf acts like Dick Dale.
After The Wave Slaves, COEDS took the stage to continue the retro theme of the night. In contrast to the 60’s surf rock that preceded them, COEDS laid down some classic rock n’ roll much in the vein of The B52s fused with modern power-pop influences. A bit more rambunctious and rowdy than some of the classic acts of the 80’s, COEDS manage to take something vintage and re-tool it into something uniquely their own.
Closing out the show was Crazy Bag Lady, turning things up to 11 to finish up the night. Crazy Bag Lady delivered another high energy, fast and furious showcase of punk rock ethos as always expected. Check out a few shots below and stay tuned to find out about upcoming shows featuring these awesome locals including The Jinx’s Rock N’ Roll Prom featuring The Wave Slaves as well as Savannah Stopover where Crazy Bag Lady and COEDS will both have sets during the 3 day festival.
