2013 AT Showcase Round 4 roundup: Peckerwolf

Posted By on Sun, Feb 17, 2013 at 5:33 PM

Peckerwolf played Round 4 of the Showcase pic

Peckerwolf brought to the showcase a heaping of burly guitar rock that was loud, sweaty, mostly bearded and at times shirtless. Seeing this band live is a bit like play-wrestling with the 50-Foot Woman, and she's not trying to hurt you, she's just batting you around for fun, and you wanna be cool about it so you're like, "No, it's alright, 50-Foot Woman, I'm fine. That didn't hurt at all. (Owww!)"

Judge CT wrote, "A good rock 'n' roll band. [Drummer] Tyler Nance is a basher..." Guest judge Shayne Gibbs wrote "Beer drankin' music, as in, I seriously didn't order a beer until these guys came on. Some thunderous shit." Judge Mandy McBryde wrote that the band "Makes me feel alive and changes my body chemistry. I love it."

Grayson Shelton wrote, "One hell of a rhythm section! Bassist/drummer hitting awesome, complex parts. Good high-energy, high-beard show. Queens of the Stone Age/Wolfmother hybrid."

After the jump, more photos and a video.
