Drunk Music Reviews is Caitlin Behle and John Sebastian. Caitlin reviews a show while progressively getting drunker, while illustrator John Sebastian turns the drunken reviews, which could be ridiculous, sloppy or just plain insulting, into a comic.
Notes: The captions that end with @drunkmusicrevws were pulled from their Twitter account during the show. Tweets ending with J are reviews from John, while tweets ending with C are from Caitlin. The chart at the bottom of every illustration shows the drink tallies for the night.
Normally a Drunk Music Review is split into pretty clear cut tasks – I handle the reviews and John takes care of the illustrations (while wasted, of course). However, we decided to take a different approach with Saturday’s Boomslang showcase at Buster’s; John did the entire review. I’d like to attribute this shift in responsibilities to our attempt to challenge ourselves, but really I just don’t know anything about doom metal. Doomslang was basically John’s entire reason for being in Lexington that weekend, so it only made sense to hand him the reigns.
Really digging Soft Opening’s lethargic grooves and heavy psychedelic breaks. Super noisy in the best way. - @drunkmusicrevws
Author & Punisher
Author & Punisher’s gear setup can not not remind me of the cockpit of a gundam or a mech from mech warrior – j - @drunkmusicrevws
The front room is too crowded for me to see White Hills save for their guitarist’s sparkly leather jacket. I must have it. – j - @drunkmusicrevws
The singer of White Hills is kind of a Dio-sized Alice Cooper-looking guy. – j @drunkmusicrevws
Weedeater enters the stage to the Sanford and Son theme. Too perfect. - @drunkmusicrevws
I ca’t tell if its a thing for Dixie to look fucked up or he actually is, but he looked straight at me, and also to he right of me. - @drunkmusicrevws
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get through the crowd or see through the fog/incense smoke to see native Lexington’s Merkaba well enough to actually draw the band.
