Old Year, New Cycle
With the year running down and school winding up, now's the time to get some rock in you. Long-running emo/pop/punk band Good Life Cycle is at it again. After dealing with endless, almost Spinal Tapesque, drummer problems and losing its lead guitarist to South Florida's favorite doom-metal sons, Torche, the band is returning to the studio and gearing up with a few local shows. If you're unfamiliar with GLC's sound, think loud guitars and forward-moving tempos with a female front-person. The core lineup has been playing together since 2002 and now has added Margate punk-rock veteran Pat Stahl (Malt Liquor Riot, Shakers), who brings a few guitars and a whole lot of punk attitude to the mix. It all adds up to some high-volume, pre-Christmas fun at Gumwrappers, the pastie bar-cum-rock club that gives a whole new meaning to the term stocking stuffer.
Good Life Cycle plays at 10 p.m. Friday, December 23, at Gumwrappers, 3233 N. Ocean Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $5. Call 954-565-9264.
