Friendly Foes - New 7" release show - 10 / 10 - Berkley Front


With July's hosting of the High Strung CD Release show - and before that it featured Scott Allen's new band Big Mess - and most recently had a cozy early autumn folk-ish set from The Scarlet Oaks.
It's autumn now - maybe it's safe to say now that all the suburban set scene-goers settled into Ferndale, Royal Oak and Birmingham now have a place where they can regularly go, wrapped in trendy jackets, on mind-clearing walks in the brisk air, huffing the smell of burned leaves before we head in for a few swills of beer and nice loud music.

And that place is The Berkley Front's upstairs stage. This weekend, the Friendly Foes celebrate the release of So Obscene EP, - offering a 7" with a CD inside. (Review forthcoming). Early myspace postings warned of a limited run - so you may have to get there if you want a piece of the action. The guitars are getting grettier, the rhythms are pounding, it's harder and expanding beyond the autobiographical sensibility of their launchpad material.
