Naam headlined the Cake Shop on a rainy Wednesday (6/9) with help from newest Relapse signees Cough, Massachusetts doom trio Elder, and Brooklyn metali-garage punks Elks. The show was part of a tour for Cough / Elder, which lead them up into New England before heading back down to Cough's home territory of Richmond, VA.

Though you can't tell much from their MySpace page, I could tell that Brooklyn's Elks are on to something. The band kicked out a brief but ripping set of punk-y garage inflected metal, providing an ample kick start to the show and a perfect lead-in to the Massachusetts big riffers Elder. Cough followed Elder and blew me away with their unstoppable doomy sludge pummel. It was my second experience with the band in NYC (the first was at Northside) and now that Cough has a second guitarist in tow, they are sounding more massive than ever! Naam's bluesy space-a-delic sounds were well executed as usual, though my personal highlight was seeing the trio rock "Black Ice". It's good to know that although they normally let the riffs breathe, they can (when they want) pummel as fast and furious as any of the bullet-belted folk. More pics from the show are below...

Cant wait to see Cough live. And those shirts look awesome. Gonna have to get me one of those. The last good stoner rock band I saw was Weed Eater, who were as loud as fuck. I am sure Cough will one up in that department.
