Hairspray Blues

Circle Bar

August 12, 2009

BY JASON SONGE


This punk band from Portland, Oregon was all about speed, volume(in the form of constant thrashing cymbals or pounding toms) and angry release.

Of less concern was the tightness of the music. The duo of drums and guitar/vocals was loose, but their attitude kept me engrossed in their performance.

Drummer Leslie Stabile dramatically threw her arms around the kit and made sexy eyes at her guitarist husband Kyle Stabile. In between screams and out-of-breath tirades, he smiled right back.

The band was a lot of fun, an invigorating mix of hotrod garage and Motorhead.
