Live Review
Weedpuller @  Club 369 Fullerton Ca. Friday May 8, 1998 
by Keavin Wiggins


 


Fullerton Ca:  It was a pretty good crowd for a post 10:30 thursday night show for Weedpuller at Club 369 on April 23, 1998. 

This was the first Live club show with their new guitarist Brian, and the first club show for the band in a couple of years,  were the rusty? resting on their laurels, after spending the past 13 months in the studio working on their forthcoming 2nd cd Girth? Not at all Weedpuller was in rare form as they took the stage, the band was energetic the crowd was excited, and the whole show just goes to show you that nothing compares to a live performance by top notch musicians.  

Weedpuller has made their mark as a pop/puck band with highly singable songs, you just can't help to find your self singing right along with lead singer/ bass guitarist the artist formerly known as Marq. The Sound seems to have filled out quite a bit with the addition of the guitar styling of Brian Aguilar. And of course, Drummer Rob as usual showed he could pound away with the best of them.  

Their opening band A&M records 10speed were a tight threesome, who blended 70's funk with 90's punk and pop to create an interesting and highly listenable mix of sounds. Look for more on them on Rockn'world to come, their debut album is scheduled for release on May 19th.  

Weedpuller opened up with Somewhere in between that groovy puck/pop tune seems to set the mood for the evening as young women danced in the audience. Their second tune Geographic (a very funny song about a band getting halfway to Seattle to cash in on the scene there and  turning around), carried the energy to higher level as the band keep the pace. Their third song the pedophile love song little sister originally released acoustically was delivered in a loud rocking form and by this time in the show the bar was dead because everyone in attendance didn't seem to want to miss a single note.  

They played 13 songs and all were crown pleasers the highlights included Dream me when  it breaks into an instrumental at the end that showcases Lead guitarist Brian Aguilars wealth of style and talent, as well as the Groovin Offspringish Beat it out of you. During the bands cover of 70's rockers Cheap Tricks Surrender the lighting engineer jumped on stage to sing along. And the band brought the house down with their last two songs Girl upstairs which Guitarist Brian dedicated to "our lesbian friends in the audience" and Last man on the planet.  

It was a great  show, which brought this reviewer to feel sorry for those poor souls who were at home sleeping at the time, because they missed One of the best bands to hit the Orange county scene in along time. There is always next time.
