Shwizz Get Funky at the Kings Rook Club by Miriam Lamey

Saturday, Jan. 28

When it’s snowy and cold, the couch is more desirable at times than braving the frozen tundra known as Peach Street. However, locals who’ve resolved to shake things up a bit in 2017 can start off by trying something new to get them dancing at the Kings Rook Club on Jan. 28. Progressive New York outfit Shwizz will bring their curious blend, which the band say sounds like the lovechild of Frank Zappa, Umphrey’s McGee, James Brown, Lotus, The Grateful Dead, Genesis, and Dream Theater. They play tunes with varying degrees of “musical complexity,” but audiences will have to define that for themselves.

For a taste of Shwizz’ psychedelic rock swirlings, take a listen to their latest release, And Then There Were Trollz. Kicking off the album is “Rude Shoes,” where the vocals are pronounced, driven, and anything but dreamy and trippy. “Hog Thai” starts off with a blast of guitars that roll into a rocking, driven riff and slapping drums, presenting a bluesier feel, yet with Grateful Dead overtones. Finally, jump into “The Breach,” which deceptively starts off quietly with a lone, wavering, weaving guitar riff that is supported by rolling drums, tapping cymbals, and a Ride-esque feel that just screams rock and roll. They’re sure to warm up any chilly winter evening, and give local music fans something new to appreciate. – Miriam Lamey
