Chk Chk Chk, bang bang:
Sacramento’s love child Chk Chk Chk (!!!) returned to their birth mother last Friday night and delivered to a packed Townhouse, along with Mayyors. Though a relatively secret show, a fat line headed out the door and down the block. Frontman Nic Offer, sporting his blue short shorts, laid waste upon the crowd with some off-the-chain dance moves and charismatic banter. The whole group totally killed and really proved, again, reason for their success. And seeing the audience’s reaction convinced me that a crowded club environment best suits their spastic disco-dance-punk. The crowd seemed to offer up their souls in exchange for the right to dance their asses off. And of course the band, godlike, willingly and hedonistically accepted. (Lindsey Walker)
