Face it, The Supersuckers have probably been to Albuquerque more times than any band this side of Queensryche. Eddie Spaghetti
and company have toured constantly since their inception as the Black
Supersuckers in Tucson in 1988, and during that time, Spaghetti and his
talented group of musicians have dubbed themselves “The Greatest Rock
and Roll Band in the World.” Normally, I’d go along with it — I mean, I
don’t know if they are better than say Queensryche, but, then again, who
is? But I can honestly say that in a live setting, their musicianship
stands up favorably with any group currently in existence.
The problem for The Supersuckers on June 6, though, is that I’m not even sure they are going to be the best band on the stage that night. That is because local fave The Porter Draw is set to open the show in support of its latest offering, California Widow. The group’s brand of countrified rock is guaranteed to give the headliners a run for their money. With songs off its new album like “Athens”, “Before You Go” and “Davey,” anyone in attendance will realize that just like Marble Beer, Porter Draw is one of the best reasons to live in the Duke City.
