If I hadn't written my column on White Trash Night this week, I certainly would have been tempted to cover the Fool's Fest at Hell's Kitchen featuring I-Defy. I've been trying to cover those jokers for what seems like forever, and every time it's just about to happen, something falls through - the band goes on hiatus or my mind does.
Anyway, those guys sound like Pearl Jam (not really), and I dig the hell out of them. One of these days, hopefully sooner rather than later, they'll make their way into my column. With The Spazms, Bristle, Broken Oars, Jackmove, Toe Tag, Artimus Maximus, Red White and Die, and The Black Sands. 9 p.m., 21+, $5, free sausages while they last, Hell's Kitchen, 3829 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, (253) 759-6003. - Matt Driscoll
