Paranormals Set To Play At Honest Pint Sept. 26

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

The Paranormals will play Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. at The Honest Pint, 35 Patten Parkway, Chattanooga, 423 265-7665.

Tickets are $5, with an age limit of 21 and over.

Other artists will be Gnarly Charlies, Crass Mammoth.

Birmingham bred and Nashville re-united, The Paranormals muscle their way through sweaty southern rock and roll. Genre classifications may box them into the category of 'new rock' alongside acts such as We Are Scientists, The Caesars, Arctic Monkeys, or The Kooks; but don't let the chronological implications of the adjective fool you, the music made by The Paranormals is timeless.

The trio perks up ears with a no-frills sound. Breaks within the songs demand the attention of listeners while bare-bones vocals are strung along over tempo-preserving bass drum hits. Singing in the spaces, melodic bass lines hold down the fort while guitars and drums embellish with grit-teeth and primal pounds. Sutton's voice quips the eccentricities with quick phrasing and playful inflections. Call and answer lines create dialog within the songs, along with 'ooo' and 'ahhh' harmonies. Sutton, never short on words, provides conversational banter between songs, while the three demonstrate proficiency vocally and on their instruments with a confident chemistry.

Harnessing both full, fuzzy tones and songwriting with more hooks than a gulf coast fishing boat, whether you're superstitious or not, watch out for The Paranormals.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

As we have the political drama that we see in D.C. let’s be honest about what DACA is all about. We understand as the liberal policies of abortion, dependency on the government and an anti-American globalist / progressive agenda that many have come to realize these policies no longer represent their core beliefs and have left a certain party.
