The Pullouts has always been a really fun band to see and hear. But when the band added Omar Herd on drums, it became a grooving rock machine, too — just maybe the best rock band in town, particularly after several inexpensive libations. Definitely looking forward to new music from these guys. Till then, here’s an older number, “The Future’s In Sleaze,” which is one of the best rock songs written in Roanoke during my time here.
This was part of a three-band bill celebrating Pullout Bubba Webster’s birthday. Affliction Kid was mighty good, too, though I’m sorry to say I missed The Dichotomies. That’s OK, because that means I heard Johnny Winter at the Blue Ridge Blues & BBQ Fest (hoping to post that much less-intimate video soon). Next time, Dichotomies. Next time.
