The Dwarves

“We’re the originators of the garage rock genre!” said Dwarves frontman Blag Dahlia when we saw him last at Burgerama, and you know what? He’s not wrong. Back before garage rock got reattached to this cuddly, fuzzy, poppy new-but-sounds-old wave, Blag and Co. (including those who cannot be named) were getting psychedelic the nasty way and personally warping the last usable parts of '60s youth culture into something leaner and definitely meaner. Now they’re back, striding through the ruins of a landscape they could never have imagined, like an unfrozen caveman with a score to settle. Go get kicked in the head and wonder why it makes you feel so alive. They play tonight with the Queers, who could bubblegum with the best of ‘em in their day.
