Thursday the 13th just misses the infamous date for horror-movie mayhem, but it's hard to imagine anything scarier for rock and roll phobics than this lineup at Davey's Uptown. Zeke
belies both its hometown (Seattle) and its record label (Epitaph) with an intense mix of trashy rock and thrashy punk that produces roughly a song per minute, without even a Ramones-style "1-2-3-4!" to differentiate the tunes. Singer Blind Marky Felchtone provides the only occasional interruptions by pausing to heckle members of the group (and of the audience) in profane and inventive ways, while drummer Johnny Paycheck proves that it's possible to pound out impossibly fast beats while flipping the bird. Those up front can expect to be showered with spit, epithets, and extremely loud noise, but then Zeke fans probably consider these to be concert essentials. The Bulemics
and The Hookers
, two bands that mix snarling garage-spawned music with lyrics as tasteful as their names, will assist the always explosive Cretin 66
in working fans into an alcohol-fueled frenzy before the headliners begin their debaucherous onslaught.
