HEAVY ROCK | Jucifer


Jucifer is easily the heaviest duo in the whole world. People who like to pick apart and analyze music absolutely drool over the simile buffet when it comes to putting Jucifer's sound in words. Hailing from Atlanta, guitarist Amber Valentine plays through a wall — and I mean a wall — of amplifiers while drummer Edgar Livengood beats his drums like a cross between Thor and the LAPD. These two make most stoner-rock bands sound like the Meow Mix commercial. They've been doing this for 20 years. I saw Jucifer on its first tour, and said then — as I say now — that this is what it sounds like when doves die. Velvet Elvis and Burnwiller will add to the already colossal weight. Bring a bag for your head.

Jucifer plays Wednesday, June 26, 9:15 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $10-$12.
