The Scouse Gits, a rowdy Sacramento garage rock ‘n’ roll band performed their last show at the Bicycle Kitchen’s monthly Second Saturday event with Vasas and Thy Saviors.
A group of sharp-dressed men with contagious stage presence and high energy, the Scouse Gits performed its last set with a triple-guitar threat courtesy of recording engineer and multi-instrumentalist Chris Woodhouse. Woodhouse is known for his work with Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Fuzz and more. Together, the Gits performed songs that sent the all-ages crowd into dancing frenzies with moves reminiscent of ’60s go-go dancers to the northern soul era, with tons of shoulder jerkin’ in between.
I’ll very much miss seeing this band live as I love old soul and garage rock music. It holds a special place in my heart since my father introduced me to this style of music as a little girl. The Scouse Gits were one of few Sacramento bands that could inspire an entire room to dance without any regrets and forget all insecurities they brought with them. For that, thank you Scouse Gits for the good times, awesome tunes, and nights where I danced myself well into the night.
