Louie Louie is not a revivalist band. On stage they might toss out grooves reminiscent of Little Richard and Chuck Berry, exude the unsympathetic amplitude of The Ramones and Jimi Hendrix, and hit a swing as melodically addictive as Martha and the Vandellas, but defining their sound solely with comparisons to artists long-lamented would be painfully short-sighted. Their raw energy on stage has been described as cacophonous and untoward, a fresh breath of air in a seemingly old package. Creating a space that is both emotionally cathartic as well as danceable, Louie Louie is the contemporary answer to the aging of sounds we love.
Indianapolis, Indiana alt-rock trio Wife Patrol features Greg O’Neill (guitar, vocals), Natasha O’Neill (drums, vocals), and Nicole O’Neal (bass, vocals). Sifting through their influences of 90’s grunge and alt-rock, 80’s metal, and a few pop guilty pleasures, Wife Patrol makes music that is heavy and melodic, with a hint of punk. They also all have the same last name ... sort of.
