We're letting Frisco’s We Be the Echo pitch their show at Pat's in the Flat's this weekend because, 1) We’ve never heard the terms “brutal” and “prog” used together, 2) they sound alright, 3) they sure as shit sound better than the Mars Volta, who suck 4) Pat’s in the Flats is a great place to spend the evening 5) a year or two from now, you’ll be spending $17 to see them at Peabody’s, so get on the bandwagon early, and 6) they perform rippin' covers of TV themes, from Borat to Knight Rider. OK, so we pitched it for them, which is good, 'cause they're not big talkers. But read on for the details. -- D.X. FerrisBand: We Be the Echo
