Turpentine Bros

Last Thursday evening, the Keys to the Streets of Fear dudes lured garage-punk fans to an art opening at Stel's, the fashionista hideout on Newbury Street, with promises of a secret gig to follow. And they didn't disappoint. After blasting Thee Michelle Gun Elephant and Thee Headcoates through their slop-godz DJ contraption "The System" -- record player through guitar amp, guitar pickup, PA -- they led annhiliated patrons to a practice-space gig by everyone's new favourite band, the Turpentine Brothers, who have quickly taken the keys to the city from drummer Tara's old band Mr. Airplane Man. What ensued was Oblivians-style garage-sludge paradise by the Schlitz christmas-tree lights.
