The Lillingtons
Martin Blondeau

If you haven’t had the chance to get a load of what the rocanrol from the great state of Wyoming is all about, then have I got some news to make you smile, fellow lovers of rock music. The Lillingtons are a quartet from Newcastle, a town of about three thousand smiling souls in the northeast corner of the state. They will be coming to our humble burg to rock the fuck out with local luminaries Rock Jong Il on Saturday, Jan. 27, at, wait for it, Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW). The band’s followed fortune’s call for the past 20 odd years, releasing albums like Shit Out of Luck, Death By Television and last year’s Stella Sapiente along the way. Founder Kody Templeton also fronts Teenage Bottlerocket, in case you want to know. As for Rock Jong Il, lets just say that band members Jeff Cohen, Johhny Huchmala, Jay Collins, Bob Beckley and Brandon Davis are one of Burque’s best representatives of a tradition that includes notables like Hüsker Dü as well as local outfits like Russian Girlfriends. I’m still digging “Planet X” and “Wasted Life” from 2016’s Dictators of Rock LP, and you can to, if you only go to this awesome show! Shadow Creeps creep out to open up this night of for realz pop-laced punk. $10 • 9pm • 21+.
