Friday Find – “Can’t Take It” by The Schitzophonics – 6/6/14

“I’m sorry sometimes our shows are like this…” mumbled laughing frontman, Pat Beers.

“AWESOME?!?!?!?” answered an enthusiastic audience member last Wednesday night at The Soda Bar.


This exchange occurred after The Schitzophonics, in between songs riffed, joked around and ‘prolly created another smash- in front the fans that stuck it out to be swept up in the tsunami of sound the band is well-known and ardently loved for.

If you haven’t seen The Schitzophonics you’re in luck –  they’re playing Art Around Adams (8PM Blindspot Records Stage) this Saturday, June 7.

Frontman and guitarist, Pat Beers, plays as if his very life depends on the quality of each note that he either rips out or gently cajoles from his guitar.  To watch Beers and his guitar is something akin to a storm and a war between the two of them yet the outcome is just about the most impassioned guitar playing you’ll ever hear not to mention the man has the moves.  If Beers musical mayhem can be simulated to war and he the General then he has the best two Lieutenant Generals at his side and the other side had better surrender -and quick.  Tom Lord provides high energy and swift bass lines that never fail to compliment nor compete with Beers intense showmanship.  Furthermore adding Lord as backing vocals was a strategic move worthy of Gen. Patton himself.  The backbone of the Schitzophonics is the rock-steady, flawless and fearless Lety Beers. Mrs. Beers has to have one of the toughest gigs in San Diego or in music alone with the high-flying improvisational solos her guitarist keeps coming her way- and she kills it every show!
