Terror Lake - Lockjaw

Terror Lake's Tim Okura put this (satisfyingly early-starting) show together, and one got the sense that it was as much for the bands to have a chance to hang out and watch each other play as to gather in an audience. TL work (and perform) at their own pace and never act as if they need to impress anyone — but they're always an impeccably-tuned machine on stage, cranking out song after song. This one pauses to simmer a bit longer than most, giving some extra time for the guitars to tense up and release.

* Thanks to Tim for passing along the title to this one.
