Crash Normal is from France

The French. Some people love them, and, well, some people don’t.

I say screw the people who don’t.

While I’ve never been to France, and never felt the shunning shoulder of a Frenchman who thinks Americans are stupid (which I don’t necessarily disagree with), there are a number of things I feel like the French and I have in common.

For starters, coffee, cigarettes, and wine. I love all of them, and so do the French.

Another thing I have in common with at least some of the French is a love of garage rock. Who knew? I didn’t until I did some research on www.myspace.com/crashnormal ">Crash Normal â€" a two piece punk outfit from Paris set to play www.myspace.com/bobsjavajive ">Bob’s Java Jive tonight.

Judging by Crash Normal’s Myspace page, which is all I have to go on at the moment, these guys should be perfect for Tacoma and the Jive. Fuzzy, distorted warmth with broken glass edges and punk rock ethos â€" Crash Normal could easily share a bill with Tacoma’s www.myspace.com/myteetharegold ">Gold Teeth and www.myspace.com/ihatethefkingeagles ">the Fucking Eagles. Tonight they’ll be playing with www.myspace.com/robotdeathclan ">the Synthetics and www.myspace.com/freakouts ">the Freakouts â€" which should make for one hell of a time.

If you’ve got nothing to do tonight, consider Crash Normal at Bob’s Java Jive. They may be French, but they also kick garage rock ass. What more do you want?

Check out this week's Rock Rhetoric for more about Bob's Java Jive.
