Tremors on Cape Cod
Checked out the ECT with
their new drummer, Mike Purcell (aka: Mikey Villain)
Eastham on Sat night.
When I got there, Jared (guit/ECT) was frantically
trying to get the PA working for the opening band....
he fixed the prob and the openers finished up their set
of various covers (they did a fun version of 'Kielbasa'
by Tenacious D - never heard anyone do that tune
Then Johnny & The Hellhounds performed some rockabilly
action.... I knew Jared was also in this band and so I
assumed he played guitar... but I assumed wrong ! He
was up there slappin' away at a stand up bass !! Chris,
the keyboard player for ECT also plays drums in this
band.... good stuff.
Then the highlight of the night - The
Coast Tremors !
I love these guys !
Mike is a great addition to this band... he comes from a
surf/punk background and it definitely compliments the
ECT sound... lots of rapid-fire snare work and solid,
pounding beat. His head was up watching the bandmates
the entire time and you could tell he was having a
blast... i caught some huge smiles directed his way from
the rest of the band, too....
I also noticed Jared was playing a new Jaguar....
(looked old).... and Jeff has his Rickenbacker bass
They went through two sets of all the stuff from their
new self-titled CD as well as cranking on some crowd
faves from their original EP-compilation release....
the hometown crowd was really into it and a fun time was
had by all...
If you are planning on spending any time at the Cape
this summer, I definitely recommend checking out their
calendar at their myspace site (http://www.myspace.com/ectremors)
regularly to see if they will be performing when you are
They also have some shows coming up at the Kirkland Cafe
in Somerville/Cambridge - May 3 and June 23.... so you
Boston-area folks - if you haven't seen them yet, you
can't wait to check them out again myself !
Great show, guys !
