Black Diamond Heavies rock St. Petersburg

This just in from our brilliant music/booze hound, Autopsy IV, who helms the ass-kicking blog

The folks who run the new Creative Loafing music site want me to get these out pretty quickly after the show and the truth is, I wanted to do a show recap yesterday but I couldn't formulate coherent thoughts or actions.

When I slithered out of bed Wednesday morning I wasn't sure if I was still drunk or still enjoying a post-show high from The Black Diamond Heavies. Either one was entirely possible and the truth is I was probably suffering a little from both. Not to mention, my ears were still fuxxored from the nights abuse. The Black diamond Heavies rolled into St. Petersburg on Tuesday night and delivered a full-scale sonic ass whupping on everyone present.

Pounding their way through almost an hour of material from their two albums, Every Damn Time and A Touch Of Someone Else's Class the band delivered in every way I had hoped, nay...expected. I was giddy like a school girl for 2 days before this show and it lived up to every expectation I had for it. There really is no reason for you to miss these guys when they come to your neck of the woods. Go see them now and in a few years you'll be able to say you saw them "back when".

And trust me on this, bring some ear plugs.
