Last Saturday I headed over to the House of Targ - as I often do - to catch a couple acts I haven't seen in a while. Yes it's time for some bluesy and rockabilly type noise with Bearshark and Blood shot Bill. Last time I checked out Bearshark it was 2012, and even earlier for Bloodshot, who seemed to be coming through town on a regular basis back then. No one's slowed down in the interim, and the packed house definitely enjoyed themselves.
Bearshark has had a haircut since I saw them at the Dom opening for White Mystery.
The whole lot! (Incidentally, they'll be back at Targ on May 21.)
Keturah Johnson of the Heavy Medicine Band also showed up to sing a bit.
On to Bloodshot Bill, who was last spotted opening for himself and pal King Khan under their Tandoori Knights banner at Zaphod's in late 2011. It was a fine display of one-man rockabilly babble - the last show of his latest tour, although I'm not sure he ever really stops .... he's headed off to the Nashville Boogie shortly.
And so on!
The shouty bit!
Well, you get the idea!
That was wild and gone.
