Tickle Switch w/ Flat Foot Floozies 

When: Thu., Aug. 8 2013
Price: $5

local rock trio w/ swingin' blues, gypsy-jazz, and carnivalesque Americana

Featuring Royal Tinfoiler Mackie Boles on vocals and guitar, Bandi Tomaschek on bass, and Marshall Hudson on drums, the mutant rockers known as Tickle Switch are all but guaranteed to bring a high-energy show when they perform at the Tin Roof on Thursday. Boles, Tomaschek, and Hudson are a terror trio, mashing up a wallop of brontosaurus beats, grizzled vocals, and electro-blues brutality to create a magnificently discordant wall tof wail. While Tickle Switch has played the Tin Roof several times before, this go-round they’ll be joined on stage by an as-yet-unknown guest performer. Who could it be? Boles’ Tinfoil bandmate Lily Slay? Mechanical River’s Joel Hamilton? “Dangerous” Darius Rucker? “Look forward to a special secret guest who can play the oboe backward. We’re not allowed to give out his name, but he calls his oboe ‘The Whipmunk,’” the band says. As for what’s ahead for Tickle Switch, we’re told there will be more touring around the U.S. of A., along with stops in Pompeii, Budapest, and a five-night stint in Iceland, supporting the release of their 2011 EP Oopsie. Ha. Hey, are you guys pulling our leg? (Actually, the band does have an EP called Oopsie, and it’s pretty dang good.) —Kalyn Oyer THURSDAY
