Ain't nothing like a good two-piece rock band. But in recent years, the local crop has gotten lean, as evidenced by the waning of the once-regular Two Piece Mini Fest. However, some fresh, relatively undiscovered blood like Howling Midnight has been surfacing and showing real promise. Certainly one of the most noteworthy is Copper Bones, who aren't actually new. The band has been around for years and its ranks pack deep scene cred from Orlando music canon acts like My Hotel Year, Peterbuilt and the Attack. But they weren't always a duo. Now they are, with a total embrace of the concept as a heavy riff-rock band that's burly, boss and much-needed around here. And their brand-new album, Exhibit A
, lays the beef on thick. For the standard $5 cover at this release show, you'll receive the CD and free Terrapin Sound Czech Pils until the keg floats.
