TONIGHT: Pistolero and Sederra Residency at Detroit Bar
What? Could it be? A metal band finally lands a residency at Detroit Bar? Yes.
Tonight offers a refreshing taste of chugging guitar riffs, throat shredding howls and maybe even a blast beat or two courtesy of Costa Mesa's own Pistolero.
Sure, listening to a hip new indie band is something most of us have come accustomed to on Monday nights as we trail in to Detroit for a beer and a song. But this month offers something in the way of an antidote to your Stella-chugging apathy. If anything, watching a good metal band forces you to do everything like you mean it: head bang like you mean it, drink like you mean it, mosh like you mean it, etc. (actually skip the moshing part, Detroit really isn't the venue for that).
The band's residency also features a weekly performance by Sederra a seasoned Fullerton five piece. Mostly comprised of ex-members of Longfellow, a once popular OC emo outfit (broke up in 2002), the band's sound is a notable departure from the old days, opting for a more punk/straight ahead feel to their jams.
In any event, this month ought to be a welcome flavor change for Detroit's local residency line up. After all, a little bit of metal always does the body good.
