Call them a new band. Call them a bunch of dudes. Call their band name a play on Vonnegut’s satirical novel. But DO NOT call Slaughterhouse Jive unenergetic or quiet. The first song (Grinderman’s No Pussy Blues) rocketed off Tim’s lead guitar like the strings themselves were Angry Birds getting flung at those damn green pigs. The next song – The Hives’ Tick Tick Boom – was even more energetic, but now the attention turns to lead singer Doug. Wearing a leather jacket, a plaid button-down, a low hanging belt, and faded jeans with a fist-sized hole, it’s safe to say he looks the part. At their first performance at Rocky Mountain Tavern, Doug says he wore “these ridiculous tight plaid pants”. Hey, if you’re going to be a rock star, you’ve gotta dress like one.
