Let’s face it, we’ve all been there. It’s a tuesday night, six bands no end in sight and you really wouldn’t even be at the show if it wasn’t your friends bands. Welcome to Friend Rock City, Population: You. The men of Victory and Associates have definitely been there too, and they’ve went ahead and released a single about it. Complete with “cover art” of a terrible show flyer.
Victory and Associates take a break from kicking against the pricks to deliver some well placed friendly jabs to the disorganized nature of the midweek obligation rock show, “friend rock” bands that should really be trying harder and the general absurdity of small time live music, The first followup from their critically acclaimed debut record THESE THINGS ARE FACTS. Meant to be played LOUD (and not on a computer) Friend Rock City reunites the bay area smart asses with super producer John Congleton (Thermals, Baroness, St. Vincent) for a propulsive and boisterous romp headed up by a brief comedic sketch. Yes. Comedic sketch.
And yes, there is a verison with just music. Just for you. We hope you can relate, and we bet you can.
