Pierced Arrows Set to Teach the Pipsqueaks a Thing or Two Tonight at Rotture

Pierced Arrows Set to Teach the Pipsqueaks a Thing or Two Tonight at Rotture


Though married musicians Fred and Toody Cole are now in their 60s, the rock 'n’ roll duo show no signs of retirement. The indie rock veterans performed for 20 years with their band Dead Moon, but since that band's demise in 2006, you'll have to see them grace the stage of Rotture tonight with Pierced Arrows. This is most definitely not a bad thing.

The '80s garage/country-rock style that Dead Moon was known and respected for is not missing from Pierced Arrows' potent lineup of tunes, but you will hear more of a punk influence thanks in part to the tenacious drumming of Kelly Halliburton. This band has more fire, stage presence and energy than a band half their age, and it's easy to see why they have been owning Portland stages for over two decades.

Check out these living legends at Rotture tonight along with Hungry Ghost, and Lana Rebel & the Broken Promises. And don't forget to help welcome Don't's new CD into the world, as they parlay their old school punk/blues/country conglomerate under the watchful lead guitar of Dan Lowinger, and the Hynde-esque vocals of Jenny Don't. 

Show kicks off at 9 p.m with a cover charge of a measly $8.
