GARAGE ROCK | The Priests 

The Priests is one of the best bands to ever come out of Rochester. The band's sound epitomized the Garage-Pop Records sound; its volatility was palpable and proved to be the only thing to unseat the band. In a wash of feedback and chaos, The Priests captured the energy of garage mavens like The Sonics, wrapped in a Bo Diddley beat; it's a B-movie nightmare with a sexified groove, grind, and thrust. After dominating the scene for a good part of the 90's, the band imploded and scattered after its first and only European tour. The band had just released a killer LP on Get Hip Records, but alas, it was too little too late, there was no one to eulogize. I f***king miss the band. They're back for one night. Take what you can get, Jack.

The Priests, The Televisionaries, and The Fox Sisters, play Friday, October 31, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $5. The band will play another show on Saturday, November 1, at Lux Lounge, 666 South Avenue. 9 p.m. Free.
