50 Watt Whale
Itâ€™s difficult to cook up a good band name [music, July 18: â€śWhatâ€™s in a Name?â€ť], but that hurdle is far behind local pop-rock trio 50 Watt Whale.
With a style that resembles Pink Floyd learning not to take themselves so seriously and incorporating elements of acts like The Band, theyâ€™ve been performing in one way or another since 1985. And though the three core members make up the heart and soul of the Whale (did somebody say nickname?), itâ€™s not uncommon to see special guests dropping in to lend support for the tremendous triumvirate.
50 Watt Whale probably wonâ€™t change the face of music as we know it, but all those who attend can look forward to a great night of catchy rock â€™nâ€™ roll numbers and some serious booty-shakingâ€¦and honestly, who doesnâ€™t love booty shaking?
