Roy Loney

Friday, May 16

Does anybody really know why Roy Loney didn't make a ton of killer

albums after leaving the Flamin' Groovies in '71? Probably not. But

the talent has been there in spades ever since. The guy is like Dwight

Twilley, had that skinny little twerp toked mad reefer and filled his

soul full of Captain Beefheart in his teens. Translation: Loney tears

it up classic rock 'n' roll style with the perfect mix of pop hooks,

greaser aggression, and punk weirdness. Over the last several years

Loney has been jamming with the Longshots, which, as most Seattle

denizens should know, contains several dudes from the Young Fresh

Fellows. They rock, too. So yeah, get ready for a party. And ladies,

wear poodle skirts covered in chocolate stains. That drives Loney

wild. With the Tripwires and the Fucking Eagles. Sunset Tavern, 5433

Ballard Ave. N.W., 784-4880. 10 p.m. $8. JUSTIN F. FARRAR
