Strong melodies are a super powerful thing. You could get completely black-out drunk, forget how you got home, and still wake up with some song you don’t even know stuck in your head – possibly wondering why you’re singing the words “I like it a lot” to yourself in some kind of fake British accent.

The answer is because you saw Big Tits last night. And while perfecting brand new (catchy as F) melodies over familiar chords is already underrated, so is performing intense, sweaty, energetic live shows. It’s that combination that make Big Tits a great live band. Plus it’s actually really fun to watch a dude jump around and into the crowd while the band holds it down.

It’s equally fun to watch an audience member get a little uncomfortable at the broken down barrier between band and audience – or to even be the uncomfortable one as a long-haired dude with a ponytail is bopping around shouting lyrics in your face. You’d almost have to be kind of a dick not to appreciate the fun that’s happening around you. I prefer to enjoy Big Tits they way they were meant to be enjoyed: live, up-close, bopping around in front of you, and dripping in sweat.
