Glitter Wizard, The Shrine, Dirty Fences, Tiny Lady

When: Fri., March 29, 9 p.m. 2013


Last July the Shrine released their full-length, Primitive Blast, then promptly ripped onto the scene like greased lightning. The Venice, California band crept onto Decibel's top 40 albums of 2012 at slot #37, and were quickly embraced by the new and old guard of rock 'n' roll. Earlier this year they toured with Sweden's Graveyard, and in April they'll get on the bus with Dinosaur Jr. This all makes tons of sense because Primitive Blast, and the band's live set, are a barrel of monkeys. The Shrine pumps heavy, snarling, rip-roaring rock 'n' roll with a little bit of goof and fun. The boys are an unassuming bunch, too, looking like a trio of bros that just got up from a curb outside a convenience store, or climbed out of an empty pool with skateboards under their arms. But rest assured, when they mount the stage and grip their instruments, you'd best stand back. ARIS WALES
