Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Church Shoes/Kid Tested

When: Tue., Nov. 26, 10 p.m. 2013

Thank god for bands like Church Shoes. While it's truly wonderful that genres such as electro-rap, dub-wave, and jazz core exist, bands like Church Shoes ground us. They shouldn't be confused with some sort of nostalgia-rock outfit; they come to rock, drink and, in their words, "die high and naked." And while, no, they're not doing anything groundbreaking, there's a lot to be said for those that go out and deliver solid rock 'n' roll; it's harder than it looks. The solid songwriting mixed with Americana-by-way-of-garage-rock guitars on songs such as "Yea Right" and "Fort Wayne Woman" reflect their roots. Before the frills and costumes, before the money and cars, there was just rock 'n' roll; and that's where Church Shoes fits in. (Stoops)
