Trashy, bombastic and fully loaded with melody, last year’s Peaced and Slightly Pulverized established Omaha, NE guitarist David Nance as one of the garage-rock revival’s most exciting new voices. Owing to Hendrix, the Dead and Memphis late-great Jay Reatard, the record showcased Nance’s sonorous pipes and his band’s Crazy Horse attack. Nance has also been co-signed by Jack White, who invited the David Nance Group to open for him at an Oklahoma date last year and released a recent single, “Meanwhile” b/w “Credit Line,” via his Third Man Records. Joining Nance and crew at Flicker are scuzzy Philly trio Long Hots and locals Blunt Bangs and Waltz.
BLUNT BANGS Local indie-pop band led by songwriter Reggie Youngblood.
LONG HOTS Experimental guitar-rock trio from Philadelphia.
DAVID NANCE GROUP Scuzzed-out guitar band from Omaha, NE. See Calendar Pick on p. 16.
