On the heels of releasing their second LP, simply titled II, heavy rock trio Fuzz made a stop at the Constellation Room in Orange County before heading off on a monthlong North American tour.
Joining them was Walter, who will also open for Fuzz during the tour, and Audacity. The small room was already packed as Walter tore through bluesinfluenced jams and catchy heavyhitters like “Ice Cream.” Surprisingly, it seemed as if not many people in the crowd were excited for Audacity, a seemingly Fullerton favorite. Maybe loud and fast doesn’t pass muster anymore?
Anywho, energy surged through the crowd once Fuzz took the stage. Led by Ty Segall on drums and lead vocals, the group is more of a 70s stoner rock outlet compared to the Ty Segall Band, which is mostly rooted in garage rock influences.
For the show, the band dressed in glam attire. Black lipstick coated Segall’s lips and two blue triangles framed bassist Chad Ubovich’s eyes. Not to mention the fringe on Segall’s quarter sleeve rhinestone shirt, surely a nod to Mr. Marc Bolan of T. Rex. Fuzz played a few new songs in the beginning of the set, but went on to play old favorites from the first LP for the majority of the performance. Needless to say, after three loud reverb-laden bands blasted the small space that is the Constellation Room, everyone went home deaf and happy.
