What You May Have Missed: Eric Tessmer Band at Mercury Lounge

Eric Tessmer Band: June 17 @ Mercury
Lounge, New York, NY

I caught the Eric Tessmer Band this past Friday night. They're from Austin, TX. Good things come out of Austin folks.

If you know anything at all about me from visiting my little place here in the Internet world, then you know I like guitars. Eric Tessmer plays guitar (and sings), damn does he play guitar. Let's see, think Stevie Ray, maybe some Kenny Wayne ... you know, that whole blues rock rip through you like hot lava kind of thing. It was a mind melting, brain fuck. Thank you Mr. Tessmer for giving me an eargasm. My ears and I may be a little bit in love with you now. We will definitely come and see you again when you pass through these parts.

Y'all know I tend to neglect the rhythm section. Hey, it's not my fault, I was born liking guitars! But, they tore it up too, all kinds of bad ass. They are the perfect counter to Tessmer's wailing guitar.

This is what the badassery looked like...
