In a post-millennial world where most neo-garage-rock and neo-psychedelia acts — plus all those other neo-whatever outfits — try too hard to look like they’re not trying too hard, genuine effortlessness is something of a precious commodity. And it helps if you just happen to be a strong songwriter. King Tuff — the brainchild of Vermont’s Kyle Thomas, who also fronts J Mascis’ side-project Witch — ripped a page out of Marc Bolan’s riffbook with 2009’s Was Dead, but not without fortifying the whole thing with some Kinks-y pop progressions and psychedelic 13th Floor Elevators aesthetics. Tunes like “Lazerbeam,” “Sun Medallion” and “Freak When I’m Dead” are just as far-out as their titles suggest, and Thomas’ bratty holler might very well be enough to give you acid flashbacks to days of fear, loathing, flamin’, groovies and electric Kool-Aid. Beloved local punx JEFF the Brotherhood also play. It’s a house show, though, so we’re going to be relatively vague about the exact address — just keep your ear to the ground.
