The Supersuckers

Recently arrived back in North America from a summer tour of Europe that saw them play shows in Spain, France, the U.K. Germany and Switzerland, this Seattle-based band  touches down at the Exchange tonight.

Fronted by bassist Eddie Spaghetti, the Supersuckers have been around in both rock and country guises since 1988. In that time, they’ve gone through a whole pile of line-up changes. Spaghetti’s been one constant, for sure. And guitarist Dan “Thunder” Bolton has been along for most of the ride too. At present, the band also includes guitarist “Metal” Marty Chandler and Christopher “Chango” von Streicher on drums.

The band has seen better days, undoubtedly, although they did release a new album in January called Get the Hell. As you can see from the video for the title track, it’s a rock album, so that’s the genre that the band will likely favour at tonight’s show. Sharing the bill are Maxstone and the Regina band Tomorrow Starts Today. Tickets are $15.
