Beach Bats / Dane Roberts at Phog Lounge (Early Show)
Beach Bats / Dane Roberts at Phog Lounge / $10 / 7pm Doors
The Beach Bats are two parts rock n’ roll, a weak shot of jazz fusion, fill the rest with punk rock and cheap margarita mix. Rim with rockabilly residue and garnish with fresh lime and cocktail umbrella. Pairs best with suffocating humidity, ripened mango, and the stuff bad dreams are made of. Tony and Chelsea pilot this pleasure craft with influences ranging from Reverend Horton Heat to Black Sabbath, Les Baxter to Weather Report, Bad Seeds to FEAR. They have recorded with an impressive roster of guest musicians and have been known to season their arrangements with pedal steel, saxophone, backing vocalists, percussionists and synthesizers. The Beach Bats offer music that will put you in poor health and add years to your complexion like that sizzlin’ Florida sun.
