TAUK opens my eyes
So while Lockn was happening down south, I stayed in the city this past weekend for some events memorializing the death of one of my high school classmates on 9/11. As part of the weekend, I wanted to provide a recreational option on Friday night and, of course, that meant the Bowl.
To be honest, going into the night the actual bowling was supposed to be the big draw, but by the end of the evening I had come out a big TAUK fan!
Now Raq I've known about for years and honestly they didn't do much to surprise me - good, solid jam-rock. But I had never heard of TAUK and they were a huge pleasant surprise: tight, great drummer, super funky and danceable. Thankfully they played a full 90 minutes (it was a late night). I'll definitely make plans to see them again. Check out the video I shot.
