It is bands like Drunken Sufis that make me miss CBGB and the old Continental where you could see 5 - 6 bands on a weekend night and there would always be a band that you hadn't heard of that would catch your ear. I remember being impressed the first time I saw The A.K.A's (who opened for The Dwarves) and Drunken Sufis sound like The A.K.A's crossed with the Dead Kennedy's.
Drunken Sufis recently released Death Cult Summer Camp, which Deli Magazine described as a 17-song collection of manic, sharply satirical bursts of "conspiracy prog-punk." The band is headlining a show this Friday at Fontana's and they are playing with The Sharp Lads (11PM set time), The Bright White (10PM set time), The Dardys (9PM set time) and The Frost Heaves (8PM set time). Cover is $8.
