Whiskeytits, Angelville and King Deuce
Saturday, July 29
This will be a busy weekend for fans of hardcore and metal music in Indianapolis. Friday night, Dude Fest starts off two days of hardcore at the Emerson Theater with local favorites The Dream Is Dead and Angelville. Many other local and national acts including Coliseum, Buried Inside, Hewhocorrupts and Ed Gein round out the festival’s lineup through Saturday night.
If you think that puts enough on your plate for the weekend, think again. Whiskeytits performs a long-awaited show at the Melody Inn’s Punk Rock Night.
Whiskeytits plays the finest blend of Southern style metal in an alcohol-drenched fury of burly riffs and raging vocals. There is no accurate “sounds like …” description for this band, but influences include groups ranging from Guns ’n’ Roses to The Murder City Devils to Motorhead; all can be heard in their music.
The band is comprised of Nate Olp (Demiricous) on lead vocals, Bob Peele (Suicide Note) on bass, Jeremy King (ex Fax Arcana) on drums, with guitars by Jared Southwick (The Dream Is Dead) and Bill Pelon (ex Romance Morgue). Despite the release of 101 South, a four-song EP in 2005, Whiskeytits rarely plays shows due to the other bands’ full schedules.
Even if trays of shots are not being handed out between every song like at their first Melody Inn show, you can expect to see a crowd truly enjoying themselves. Whiskeytits is a party band, and its music proves that heavy can be fun. The Mel’s no moshing rule will be tested, drinks will be spilled and a good time will be had by those brave enough to come play with the ’Tities.
