Live Music Review: NPCC Tacoma Rock Show

Live Music Review: NPCC Tacoma Rock Show

This was a showcase of some of the upcoming Tacoma bands. I was impressed with the variety

of music and enjoyed the venue. The place is the Northwest Coffee Company that has a great

variety of drinks and coffee, which honestly is all you need. The band that really stood out for

me was Mister Master.

They are a 3 piece group with and amazing guitar player. I really enjoy

how they seem to do there own takes of covers, on this night they did a Beastie Boy cover,

Don’t Sleep in Brooklyn, which was really good, and they made it heavier, which I really loved.

There originals have a grunge quality that seems harder and harder to find these days in new

bands. This group adds a great blues and grudge sound that pulls the crowd in especially at a

smaller venue like this one.

If your one who enjoys guitar driven music then you will really enjoy

this band even more. The guitar work is amazing with its bluesy, Jerry Cantrell like playing style.

They have a heavy funk sound similar to red hot chili peppers that ties everything together. They

have a 3 song EP, best song is Silver Stain that starts off with a killer guitar hook that will have

you playing the song over and over again.
