Purple Rhinestone Eagle
I was in Seattle this weekend to see the friends. I happily stumbled upon a flyer for a Purple Rhinestone Eagle show and was very pleased to convince pals to come along. Purple Rhinestone Eagle is a Portland band but last night they rocked the paint off the walls at The Wild Rose, a women's bar institution right in the middle of Capitol Hill. They make self-described "rock-n-roll-pyschedelic-garage-stoner fury." They are the antidote to Ani. They made me very happy and I bought the t-shirt and the CD. They make me want to hang out in a basement under a black light and practice pentatonic guitar scales. I can't believe I don't have a basement or a black light. What has become of me?
