Saturday night at the Hi-Tone in Memphis, get ready for a splendid evening of music devoid of categorization, and guaranteed to cause you to gasp in shock as all these clashing flavors come together. Quinn Powers' (ex Final Solutions) most recent band, Staags!, are a broken and loose party of guitars dressed as a band that's got a prerogative to drink til they drive themselves over the edge. Just simple rock'n roll with nothing extraneous to distract you from your intoxicants, and with the handful of songs you can listen to HERE, you'll see there's some uncut potential lurking under the surface that just might blow up in your face. Next up are the Oscars, who are the carefully constructed band of deviants centered around Sam Burn, including one Chuck Vicious, who employ the subtle nuances of Memphis' trash factory all-stars coupled with a melodic vein of cold-wave synergy that's just too serrated and alluring to resist. While a lazy comparison would tie them into the fact that Jay Reatard accompanied them on bass on their last tour, they have the solid songs and the perpetual oddness that keeps them an integral part of the Memphis musical fabric that so many of us hold dear. What could possibly be up next that could turn the entire night into a fiasco? Chopper Girl. Straight out the Memphis gutters comes the evil bitch of the hip hop underground, Chopper Girl to take any shreds of humanity left and desecrate the remains under a thick, low-end thug beat that should slap the smirk right off your face in seconds. This is one mean chick with a chip on her shoulder who's not afraid to talk the talk and back it up as well. Incorporating an unorthodox vibe of into her routine makes for some real unruly shit, so be prepared to get full-tilt stuffed, shucked, and served by one of Memphis' underground hip hop queens. And on that tip, if you're unaware of the secret project known as The Memphis Babylon (Chopper Girl backed up by Jay Reatard, Scott Rogers, and Tommy Trouble), be sure to check out one of their songs right HERE.
