Whatever you do, don't confuse the Woggles with the Wiggles. You see, while the latter plays bland and slightly creepy kids music, the former is one of the finest purveyors of garage rock to emerge from the South in the past twenty years, spreading their fiery gospel of revved up rock'n'roll to people all over the world.
While their CDs bring the thrills (this reviewer prefers "Ragged But Right" and "Rock'n'Roll Backlash") the best place to see them in their element is in the live. You will have a chance this Thursday at Cafe Nine. After a 12 year absence, the band has regularly played the club, twice in the last few years. At one of the shows, they even had a mini-garage rock summit with the Fleshtones.
Even NPR, was quoted as saying something to the effect that going to a Woggles show will change your life. Here's one time, where the voice of the bland and indie got it right. The Woggles are an incredible live act, dishing out hot slabs of garage rock action like a bunch of zealots proselytizing the holy gospel of rock'n'roll. It's a high energy affair filled with passion and sweat, that will turn the audience into true believers.
So don't miss out on this chance, be there, and be a witness.
