Featured on Polyvinyl Records‘ upcoming I Need You Bad garage rock compilation as well as last months’ Vans Classic & San Francisco showcase, Cool Ghouls are showing no signs of slowing down as they gear up for a small West Coast tour. Before heading up to Portland next month, the band will be headlining Hemlock Tavern this Thursday, October 24, along with a stellar, out of town line up.
Joining the Ghouls will be Seattle’s Neighbors, a four-piece outfit whose power pop riffs and occasionally off-kilter vocals, particularly on “Home,” the opening track of their Power Country cassette, make for an endearing, danceable brand of rock and roll.
Rounding out the night are Satan Wriders, a Stockton, CA-based band who captured the attention of The Bay Bridged with their surf rock riffs back in August, when our own Russell Jelinek included the group in our Best of Submissions series. Equally scuzzy and sunny, the group channels good-bad vibes by weaving classic pop ooh ooh oohs throughout cheeky vocals on their track “Sun Coma.”
