Empire State Troopers | This Friday | Burlington

Albany 4 piece hard rock group Empire State Troopers are blessing Burlington with their presence this Friday.

Empire State Troopers + Che Guevara T-Shirt | May 9th | 10 PM | Radio Bean

A few months back I wrote plenty about EST's recent EP, Upstate Again, recorded by Jason Loewenstein of Sebadoh fame. Here's a quick quote from that post: One of the most obvious elements to EST is the powerful chick singing of Kelly Murphy. A force to be reckoned with, Murphy seems to be on a tear in every song. If the band is a '71 Challenger, she's the bottle of Super 104 Octane Boost.

RIYL: The Jesus Lizard, Blue Oyster Cult, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath.
Complicated Shirt was originally on the bill, but they totaled their van earlier in the week. In their stead is one of the best named bands in all of rock, Che Guevara T-Shirt. Che is indie where EST are boastful, but just as f'n forceful. I highly recommend this show for all who like it loud.
