Royal Trux "Twin Infinitives" show in Brooklyn tonight
Anyone going?

I could use someone to chill with I couldn't find anyone into Royal Trux enough to make the trek with me.

What! I'd go with you. If I lived in New York :(

Toilet & Bowels 12.08.2012 11:54 AM

But seriously, how can you have you have Royal Trux without Jennifer Herrema though?

stu666 12.08.2012 12:11 PM

oh right, that makes things completely different then. I'm not going now. I didn't know that!

Toilet & Bowels 12.08.2012 12:14 PM

Yeah, it's Neil Hagerty plus lackeys.

dont be a price, it was simply a bonus. in all my years listening to twin infinitives i never realized how danceable record that is. the whole front of the audience was dancing. it was great.

I can't believe that the ''dance'' element to some of Royal Trux's music is being lauded only now by some American audiences.

Genteel Death 12.11.2012 06:21 PM

Anyway, masterpiece record and I would have loved to go to this.

batreleaser 12.12.2012 10:21 PM

a lot of royal trux records have been funky, but ive definitely never danced to any of them, and it was a funky good time, so to speak

Quite a lot of his solo work incorporates that old time rocknroll and it is hard not to want to boogie - in another time he would have had quite a few hits, he's written - let me say continued to write - some great songs since Trux fell apart.

Thought I'd post this link in case anyone is interested, it'll be easy to miss
