Less Than Equals

Tripwires frontman John Ramberg and guitarist Kurt Bloch (Fastbacks, Young Fresh Fellows) form this side-project and tribute group that Ramberg calls "a cover band of a relatively unknown British band called The Equals;" the music is an infectious blend of power-pop, ska, and '60s garage rock. With virtually no online presence, your only experience of the band is a live one, and having seen the show before I can honestly report it's a beer-and-whiskey soaked event. These two Seattle scene veterans like to pull a cork as much as they like to play, and there's no better place to observe the spectacle than the Funhouse, where the drinks are as stiff as the decibels reverberating from the club.
