Wild Yaks @ Mercury Lounge, January 21st, 2009

Wild Yaks are pretty awesome. Kind of like if the lead singer of Les Savy Fav started a punk band with the members of Akron/Family. The only thing that bothered me was that sometimes the lead guitar player would 'jerk off' a little bit on the solos, and try to steal the show. But that's just a minor complaint. Their lead singer really belts it out with a lot of bravado, and their drummer is pretty sick with those fast punk beats (I got the feeling that he used to be a guitar player, based on how he plays the drums, which isn't a bad thing, but I could wrong..) The whole band plays with a ton of enthusiasm and confidence, which makes for a fun show. Just try not to rock out to this shit. Just try.
