Louisville's Finest Sludge Rockers, Coliseum, to Play Churchill's Tomorrow Night
Mellowness might be anathema to Louisville's Coliseum, judging by its reckless velocity and nihilistic harangues. "My lungs are filled with fumes...There's no air in this city/I need something pure," sings Ryan Patterson on 2004's "This Mind Locked Inside This Body." The band's anti-authority lyrics and relentless backbeat qualify it as punk enough, and it occasionally unleashes the sort of reverberating sludge riffs that make metal stoners swoon. But Coliseum is essentially a hard-rock band, with Patterson conjuring Motorhead (with his Lemmy-like death-wheeze vocals) and Motley Crue (with his sleazy/flashy Mick Mars-style solos).
Coliseum, with Young Livers. Thursday, April 2. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Doors open at 8 p.m. (supposedly). Ages 18+ with ID. 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com
