Last night Fur King and Dixie Witch (post here: Tia Carerra, Dixie Witch) played at Lovejoys for Fur King bassist Andy Pfeiffer's birthday. Fur King went on around 10 to a pretty packed house. I had seen them before but it had been a while so I was excited to see them again. I dug their sound immediately and was basically rocking out from the first song. They've got a kind of 70s, very southern heavy rock thing going on and it totally works. The set itself was well executed and fun to watch. They introduced nearly every song by claiming that it was about having sex. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to memorize their lyrics so I can neither confirm nor deny this statement. But whatever they were about, they were all energetically and enthusiastically played. Dixie Witch played after and were badass as usual. It was a great show and everyone seemed to have a great time.
