Harpoontang at Lion's Lair

We were hesitant about writing about Harpoontang's show at the Lion's Lair last Friday, lest we taint the young, impressionable minds of a certain unnamed band's fans. I mean, imagine seeing a group of gals who normally sing songs your grandparents would adore, crooning words, with such sweet and pure honeyed-voices, that would make Andrew Dice Clay blush. We're talking crass, NC-17 worthy songs. Hubba, hubba.

Frankly, we just wanted to keep the images of that show (and the girls wearing mustaches) in our back pocket, saving them for a day when we needed to something to smile about. It was pretty damn funny show, though, and we completely admired those gals. We'll spare you the details here in terms of what, exactly, they sang about, but suffice to say, the part we can tell you: they offered up a damn fine take on TLC's "Waterfalls." Fortunately, Lance Stack, who's been recording a ton of local shows on his Flat Response blog, captured the whole set. It was refreshing to see the girls let their hair down. Turns out, they're really not all that pure after all.
