Flickerstick Rocks New Year's Eve

Just returned from Flickerstick's New Year's Eve show in Fort Worth.

Went to hear these guys sound unheard - simply on the recommendation of the local alternative press (OK, the FW Weekly).

And now I'm listening to their last CD, Tarantula (released in 2004, which I bought at the show).

Their CD is an interesting mix of slowish, ballad type songs and metalish, fast paced rock-n-roll.

But in concert, these guys rock. They know how to put a show on, and how to move an audience. They sound great live - very tight and clear. And boy do they have a following. Fully half the people in the place knew every lyric to every song, and sang right along with the band. You can tell these guys really enjoy performing.

If you enjoy rock or alternative rock, check these guys out. And look for them in a town near you. They tour constantly (especially Chicago, apparently). If you get the chance, go see them. You'll have a good time.
