Whiskey Avengers - Live


 I had the great pleasure to get to hear these guys a few years back off a compilation CD my friend Larry made of all their albums in Albuquerque.  Fast forward to last weekend, I was on tour with Radio la Chusma and we had a day off Easter Sunday/420 and we were in Ocean Beach, I was coming off a pretty sick hangover from the night before and was in need of a cold one.  Tower 2 was the closest bar I could see and it so happened they had live music on Sunday's, I was with a few of the guys in Chusma and they were starving so we walked in, I ordered a beer and fish taco (had a budget to stick to!) made a run to the head and BOOM flyer for Whiskey Avengers playing at 4:20 FOR FREE!!!

     Wasn't that difficult to stick around and hear a few songs.  I introduced myself after they finished setting up and turned out we had a lot of mutual friends.  RLC was staying with Double A from Warsaw Poland Bros in North Park and the guys from Whiskey Avengers (Clint, Stefan and Kevin) have known him for a while and it so happened the rhythm section was going to lay down some music with him later on that night at The Gaslamp.  Things would take on a more epic turn of events when after I heard a few songs we had a BBQ at Double A's and the guys showed up ate, drank a few beers and what not then Aaron asked me to come sit in on a few songs!  I think a couple of the guys in Chusma overheard and joined in on the jam session so we had Charly Chanclas and Jake come with and we piled into the van and headed down to The Gaslamp.

     I had a few drinks pretty much all day but overall I think I held my own with such heavy's, Clint and Kevin laid down some pretty dope rhythm behind Aaron, be it rockabilly, rock, ska, rocksteady, straight up reggae or even some exploratory jam that happened after a few more beers and a shot I think... things got blurry near the end of the night but it was a hell of a jam!  Anyways, here are some shots of the guys performing at Tower 2!  Check out their facebook page and give them a like as well!
