You know, Taproot might blow now, but that first album was fucking good.
I can admit it. Gift came out at a time when Limp Bizkit and Staind were on the fucking radio, and it offered something different.
I can remember a review I wrote of the album, and saying parts of the band’s sound reminded me of the Deftones.
That was during a period in my life when I was way into Afghani kush.
This spring, when Taproot head out with Boy Hits Car and Intertwined, they’ll be staying away from all the shitty tunes they released in Gift’s wake, and focus squarely on that album.
They’ll be playing the album in its entirety.
Here’s where they’ll be playing, if you’re really in the mood for a night of mediocre hard rock.
