Saturday’s show features possible time-traveling band, Hollowpoints, Empty Gun Fight
This weekend in Great Falls Machinery Row welcomes three rock bands on the same bill — The Hollow Points, Idaho Green and Empty Gun Fight, one of which may be visiting from at least four decades prior.
The Hollow Points is a Seattle punk band, Idaho Green is a Billings-based punk/roots band and Empty Gun Fight is a Great Falls act that plays rock music. The show starts at 10 p.m. Admission is $7 per person.
The Hollow Points, according to their Facebook page, “combine elements of punk and rock and roll reminiscent of The Clash, One Man army, and Swingin Utters. They have been pushing their hook based sing alongs both domestically and abroad through constant touring, racking up ten releases in the past five years.”
Check out a few clips of their songs below.
Idaho Green, meanwhile, according to their Facebook page, “is an American rock band best known for popularizing the southern hard-rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1966 as the The Pretty Ones in Jacksonville, Florida, they then went through two name changes: The Noble Five and One Percent, before coming up with Idaho Green in 1968. The band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes “Jakeo Called” and “I Don’t Like Your Facebook Page”. At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band’s most popular incarnation.”
Which is kind of amazing considering none of the members in the band look to be older than 35, as seen below.
Perhaps they possess a time machine, or they just age really slowly, ala Keanu Reeves. Whatever the case may be, they look to be a lively group with lots of rock to share with the crowd on Saturday.
Not much is known at this time about The Empty Gun Fight, other than they’re a rocking local group and they’ll also be playing at Club Cigar on July 24 with Left Lane Cruiser out of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
