Black Pussy / Cosm / Into The Cellar @ Crowbar

First off, don’t get angered & offended by the band’s name “Black Pussy”. They are against sexism, racism, violence and any other kind of foolery that you might be thinking of. These guys are one of the most positive peaceful band’s I’ve witnessed, but their music speaks another story.

To kick off the night DJ Lag and Dj Bling Diamond played some rock & roll, metal, and doom to get the crowd pumped up for what was to come.

Into The Cellar blasted the audience with their stoner-metal vibe, with bone crunching guitar riffs and neck-snapping breakdowns. The dynamic duo is a strong standing 2 piece, and is made up of Jeff Fox (Palentine) and Vinnie Consentino (Early Forms). They definitely bring you “into the cellar” with heart pounding drums and thick distortion on guitar. Lovers of doom and thrash will gravitate towards them without a doubt.

Cosm, a 3 piece doom, stoner-metal band hit the stage next. Drums (Daniel Marschner) bass & keys (Dougii Gialluca) and guitarist/songstress (Jacqlyn Titus) gives you a deep & heavy soul shaking feel. A spaced out sound on the keys, with trembling bass, that set the perfect tone, while Jacqlyn strums away and sings with angelic-like vocals. Her melodic voice is beautiful over the gloom & doomed atmosphere, and she has screams and growls that can give most males a run for the money. Cosm had the crowds attention the entire time, with a few people slam dancing towards the end of their set.

You really wouldn’t know what to expect from a band called Black Pussy, what their musical genre would be, or even what they looked like. These guys straight up killed the stage, vintage style of dress from bell bottoms, to dressy button ups, to long hair that Thin Lizzy and Zeppelin would compliment them on. With liquid lightning constantly moving around on the back drop, this psychedelic stoner-pop ensemble dominated all of their instruments. There were many impressive things about this band, it could be anything from their stage presence to the gear they brought with them. The amps and instruments looked like they were in peak condition straight from the 70’s and 80’s, such a beautiful sight for fans and musicians alike. These guys take you to another dimension, it’s like a 70’s throw back for yo mama! With so much great psyc, doom and stoner metal in one room its undeniable that these guys will build more and more of a following in months to come. If you get the chance, don’t miss Black Pussy, you want be disappointed, just be ready to take a wild trip.
