Two great bands, one rip roaring, rockin’ night. The Crocodile played host to Black Pussy of Portland, and Ume of Austin Texas.
Black Pussy has a very ’70s rock look, and the ’70s-’80s rock sound to match. Reminiscent of Black Sabbath at times, but with a psychedelic rock twist, they were pretty decent with some tight guitar licks. The drummer was the most entertaining part of the stage. Dean Carroll was very entertaining and even stole the show at times. This is music for a crowd that’s ready to smoke out and rock out.
Even though Ume showed up late due to van troubles, they set up quick. A short sound-check and they jumped right in. Lauren Larson (vocals & guitar) never disappoints. She is a leg-kicking, vocal-screaming, guitar-ripping front woman! Ume is promoting their new album Moments.
