Concert Alert: Guttermouth coming to Tacoma

By Bobble Tiki on February 4, 2012

Next to the question "Don't you ever shut up?" Bobble Tiki's mother, the saintly Mrs. Tiki, was most often heard to ask her precious Bobble when he was young "Aren't you ever happy?"

"Well, excuse Bobble Tiki for living!" was his usual snappy reply - even then charmingly referring to himself in the third person.

But Mrs. Tiki had a point. Is Bobble Tiki ever happy?  On rare occasions, such as today when local music promoter Flash send Bobble Tiki a heads up on his Guttermouth Show March 2 at the Backstage Bar & Grill.

Combining the best parts of the oral tradition and street-side drainage systems, Huntington Beach's Guttermouth serves its punk rock fast, loud and snottily enough to make Bobble Tiki don his "Don't Make Me Get Out My Flying Monkeys" T-shirt for the show. The band will provide a night full of songs about fecal matter, your mother, unhealthy relationships with farm animals and more four-letter words than you can shake a forest full of sticks at.

Opening for Guttermouth will be Boldtype, Neutralboy, The Uncivil and South 11th

[Backstage Bar & Grill, Friday, March 2, 8 p.m., $12 advance, $15 door, 6409 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.564.0149]
