Cigarette Bums

This raw and road-loving quintet could be categorized alongside the garage-punk Burger Records set of bands like Pangea, Mean Jeans, and Seattle's own Night Beats, but the Cigarette Bums separate themselves with a folksy, rollicking quality to their songs. Several of their recordings are available on their Bandcamp page, including their latest, Holy Smokes!, and Rough Cuts, a 3-song release featuring the frisky, fast-riffing, and entirely pleasurable standout track "Boots." And while the Cigarette Bums hail from Los Angeles, they've already cemented the Northwest into their band's history by releasing a record called Live in Tacoma: Nothing But The Hits, recorded at the New Frontier Lounge late last year. With Pony Time, Silicon Girls, So Pitted. ERIN K. THOMPSON
