Tonight: Valient Thorr at the Jackpot

There’s not a lot I can say here that trumps what Saby Reyes-Kulkarni said about Valient Thorr in his show preview:

Valient Thorr kicks ass far beyond the dreams of any of those psychedelic-stoner-garage-riff-‘n’-rollers who make careers out of copying Sabbath or Iggy Pop and get drooled on by forgiving fans.

However, it’s certainly worth bringing up that the Architects will make a rare appearance in Lawrence as openers for this show. We’d like to see some more rock ‘n’ roll in Lawrence, but it sadly seems to be, for the most part, exclusive to Kansas City, which is a shame — mainly because those of us who live in Lawrence and don’t suckle at the teat of indie rock or jam bands have to make 80 mile round trips.

So, if you live in Lawrence, please come out and support the rare Friday night rock ‘n’ roll show. Showing up early and giving the Phillips brothers and Mr. Liggatt a little love wouldn’t be unappreciated, either.
