The Drug Purse plays Tacoma's urbanXchange

By weeklyvolcano on February 3, 2007

Thedrugpurseoneone The Drug Purse from Tacoma, fusing the late Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones with dark, psychedelic pop â€" think Dandy Warhols â€" created shimmers and laughs last night during a brilliant in store performance at Tacoma’s urbanXchange. They are The Brian Jonestown Massacre without kicks to the head.  They are Joy Division without the cold European sound of Eno-era Bowie.  They are ensured relevance to the current teen-age dress-up period.  They are the new Tacoma.

Here are a few pics from last night’s show.
