Last Call at Bunkhouse Saloon

Bunkhouse Saloon, June 29

p class=”p1″>Closed for summer remodeling by its new owners the Downtown Project, the Bunkhouse went out in musical style with an unforgettable last call: two stages (indoors and out) and seven of Las Vegas? best bands, including Dusty Sunshine and Fuzz SoLow. Piano-pop ensemble Avalon Landing tore into new song ?The Cure? with surprising ferocity, and a post-rock outro to ballad ?Erie County Welcomes You Back? allowed drummer Ryan Martin to hammer his drums until I almost begged for mercy on their behalf. Great fucking band. Same Sex Mary simmered the crowd with druggy, ?60s-psyche grooves?funky ?Pharmacy,? a Dylanesque talkin? blues, was strong, enhanced by Tsvetelina Stefanova?s organ blasts. The Big Friendly Corporation sounded bigger and friendlier, a tune like ?Worth the Waste? worth trekking through the heat to hear. The Clydesdale, whom I hadn?t seen since they used to open for open-mic poets at city-sponsored events, scratched my country-rock itch. Singer Paige Overton?s voice is gorgeous. Crazy Chief tomahawked the ears of douchebags arriving late to drink the bar dry. Pregnant bassist Roxie Amoroso?s adorable baby bump was bombarded by her band?s own Led Zep-like ?Skeleton Man.? I left mid-set, on an expectant note?????
