BOBBLE TIKI: KILL AUDIO >>>

A&E-feature-300-9-10Breakfast-with-Bobble-Tiki Bobble Tiki thinks this band is frenetic, herky-jerky, and musically a little confusing. Sure, Coheed and Cambria are lyrically introspective, but when the hell did “poor me” replace “fuck you” in rock music? 

There’s no questioning this band’s talent â€" or motives for that matter â€" but Bobble Tiki thinks there’s a little too much thinking going on here, that’s all. Let’s get some of that uncontrollable urge back.

Anyway, Coheed and Cambria’s music consists of swift prog-rock tempo shifts that still soothe the neck they threaten to break. Interesting, but though it occasionally rocks out, the music is next to impossible to dance to. Give it a shot tonight at the Puyallup Fair.

By the way, it’s not surprising that Coheed and Cambria's heady concept albums paint dark scenes of desolate stretches tainted with wilted grain and black barbed-wire propped up against blank skies like charred skeleton fingers. Lead singer Claudio Sanchez writes a couple sci-fi mythological comic books series, including The Armory Wars, and his new series, a goofier Kill Audio â€" complete with scary self-portrait vinyl toy. As part of the band’s tour Sanchez will be popping into comic book stores before concerts to sign Kill Audio, which includes Comic Evolution in Puyallup Wednesday from 4:30-6 p.m. If you purchase the scary toy Wednesday, you’ll receive special VIP status at the concert. Just so you know, it doesn’t bobble. Just sayin’.

[Comic Evolution, Wednesday, Sept. 16, 4:30-6 p.m., no cover, 206 S. Meridian, Puyallup, 253.770.6464]

[Puyallup Fair, with Brand New, Wednesday, Sept. 16, 7 p.m., $25-$37 at Ticketmaster, Ninth and Meridian, Puyallup, 253.841.5045]
