Sat. October 8th 2016 Pat's Pub (No Minors)
20:00 - 01:00 doors at 18:00
$10.00 at the door only.
On Saturday October 8, THE BAD BEATS return to Pat's Pub for a night of Garage and RockNRoll music for your drinking and dancing pleasure!

Joining them will be, from Bellingham WA, MACHINE ANIMAL (feat members of THE MONO MEN and The DT's!) and opening the show will be THE ELEVEN TWELVES, playing all the best Nuggets from the 1960's!

The legacy of Canadian Fuzz is in good hands -- The Bad Beats debut album proves it. The lessons from their Canuck grandfathers -- The Painted Ship, Les Lutins, The Haunted, and so many more 1960s legends from the Great White North -- have been consumed, digested and spit out with a new ferocity that dispels for once and for all the social myth that Canadians are polite people.
No, these Bad Beats are nasty people, with nasty sounds -- born quite literally in their garage -- where car fumes, cold beer, a fuzz box and a beat up Farfisa organ have pushed them to blast out the album you hold in your hands right now.
"Knock Yourself Out" is a perfect theme to start the mayhem, equal parts spittle and beer-fueled party fun. "His Vengeful Hand" has a cool voodoo vibe, and "She Don't Talk To Me" will have you bopping all the way to the keg and then back to the dance floor. The BBs also pay homage to the classics, with the Miracle Workers' "Love Has No Time" given a reverent treatment worthy of garage royalty.
Yes, Canadian Fuzz is in good hands. The Bad Beats are here.

The next release on Valley King Records will be the debut 7” for Machine Animal from Bellingham, WA. Garage rock fans take warning: this is Dave Crider's new band. You may remember him as the mastermind behind Estrus Records or from one of his bands - The Mono Men, Watts, or the Dt's. Along with Crider, Machine Animal has members of Bellingham's Black Beast Revival and Sweet Invicta. Recorded by the legendary Jack Endino!

The Eleven Twelves (Classic Garage Rock / Nuggets Tribute)

The Eleven Twelves are a group that specialize in playing 60's garage-rock. They have focused mostly on Lenny Kaye's "Nuggets" compilations, but also include some more obscure gems, a few hits, and the odd one hit wonder from the psychedelic era. Full of fuzzy guitar riffs, gritty harmonica, manic drumming, vintage transistor organ, and soaring har... more info
