PICTURE THIS: Happy Fangs + The Trims + Survival Guide @ Rickshaw Stop, SF 1/31/15
Happy Fangs celebrated the release of their new record, Capricorn. Over the years their sound and live performance has taken shape with the tradition from a duo, to a three-piece with the amazing drumming by Jess Gowrie.
Singer Rebecca Bortman is an intense surge of energy that never drops. The mix of her positive stage presence, guitarist Michael Cobra rocking riffs and Gowrie’s thunderous drumming, creates a unique live dynamic.
Fans suited up in warpaint and joined the punk glam tribe in a rock frenzy. Happy Fangs also curated an evening of music that was both eclectic and complementary.
The Trims provided solid rocking reverb in their signature Interpol-esque wall of sound drone.
Survival Guide served up an impressive set and the first as a three-piece. New dynamics with a live drummer, layered vocal harmonies and core member Emily Whitehurst reclaimed her position center stage.
