THICK SHAKES @ CHURCH

thickshakes

Thick Shakes play the kind of music that cool people with thick frames hear in their head when they pretend that they’re in a Tarantino movie. If you’re at a party that has the Thick Shakes on the playlist, there is at least a 130 percent chance that somebody present is gesturing emphatically with a lit cigarette. If the Thick Shakes were a type of car, it would have run you over and vanished into the horizon. Thick Shakes will be at Church tonight, droppin’ their two-minute garage gems and a-causin’ all sort of retro-billy freakouts. Look both ways.
