With Love Handles, Snakehole, Heartstrings, and Ticks

Better Than: Christian Bale's Masshole accent.
The (and we meanthe
) Puerto Ricans who rock 'n' roll, Davila 666, last night performed at Churchill's Pub for the second time and got pretty much everyone in the place onstage. Their newest album,Tan Bajo
, just came out yesterday, and they'll be making their way around the U.S. over the next two months.
It's so much easier to like a band when you see the members fuck up or something crappy happens. When Ticks' singer-guitarist's mike fell, he kept going till the end of the song, then apologized, saying, "It's one of those nights." They suddenly became more likable. Next, Heartstrings' bassist's guitar strap broke, he played for a minute with the bass balanced on his knee, and they just started to sound better.
The rest of the night went smoothly. It was about 10:30 p.m. when the room started to fill up. The audience was a mixed bag of what seemed like a handful of leftover Bruise Cruisers with the t-shirts and cornrows, a few Lake Worthers, and the Miami usuals. Rick Diaz of hahahelp was dancing topless, which is what he's both known to do, and what we love to witness.
