GAYE RAGE!!! Final Show Review

Gaye Rage Final Show
@ Broken City
August 7, 2008

Mariachis, tight pants, and a masculine flip of a scarf are all essentials to be a member of Gaye Rage. A band worthy of being written up in MOJO or SHINDIG!, is a rare find in this country-engulfed city. Before parting ways forever, this garage rock 5-piece played one last show at Broken City on a warm August evening. Craig Fahner, frontman for Gaye Rage and an absolute musical chameleon, took the stage full force with his eccentric 1960’s inspired movements complete with an all-white outfit and red scarf. Their stylized rock tunes meld both the garage rock and mod rock movements into a sound that any listener could enjoy. The whole crowd was getting into it and Fahner only upped the antics, such as singing into the mariachi why shaking the microphone. Any new fans of Gaye Rage were probably heartbroken by the end of the set – lets hope for a reunion show!
