Local Band of the Week: The Trip Daddys



(I never said they had to be new bands, did I?)

Name: The Trip Daddys MySpace: myspace.com/thetripdaddys Members: Craig Straubinger (guitars/vocals), Jamey Almond (bass/vocals), Dennis Williams (drummer) Sounds like: As anyone who attended the band's righteous CD release show for Too Much, Too Fast, last night can attest -- such as this commenter here -- the group is the bar band you want playing on a no-holds-barred weekend night. The part of the set I saw was raucous and raw, and inspired unrestrained dancing, rampant drinking and joyful carousing -- exactly what music should do. Playing its first show in months, the band didn't sound rusty; it sounded ecstatically happy to be back onstage, channeling all of that pent-up energy into a solid gig.
