Last night The Music Slut was treated to all of the following: a rousing homecoming set from our beloved Lisps
, an official album release party for Spanish Prisoners
& a proper introduction to the outrageously talented troupe known as Drink Up Buttercup. The Pennsylvania natives completely floored us with their Man Man meets Beatles meets O'Death meets Pink Floyd soundscapes. Drink Up Buttercup's live show incorporates ample shouting, rich harmonies, chaotic skedaddling and garbage pale demolition into one hypnotic and otherworldly conglomerate. Witnessing the collective's engaging performance was more than just a breath of fresh air. It somehow managed to lift all jadedness from our respective souls (a truly difficult feat, indeed). Visit Drink Up Buttercup at their MySpace page. All photos courtesy of Maryanne Ventrice.
