Rickshaw Billie's Big Dumb Fest w/ Rickshaw Billie's Burger Patrol, Gus Baldwin & the Sketch, Tia Carrera, Eagle Claw, Billy Glitter, Buzz Electro, Pinko [outside]

“It’s like Andrew W.K., but less party,” characterized Leo Lydon last June. Don’t believe it. Rickshaw Billie’s Burger Patrol, the singer/guitarist’s homegrown threesome alongside bassist Aaron Metzdorf and drummer Sean St. Germain, throws down. Like millennial English outburst the Darkness – only more grunge, less hair metal – they inject levity into their fifth clamor and stomp, last fall’s Doom Wop, adhering to the crucial musical tenet that self-seriousness numbs. The trio’s inaugural Big Dumb Fest co-headlines instrumental detonators Eagle Claw and Tia Carrera, while Billy Glitter, Gus Baldwin & the Sketch, Buzz Electro, and Pinko – prog, punk, and rock bangers all – party down too. – Raoul Hernandez
