Wet Leather @ South Park Tavern 4.26.08 celebration of their good friend's upcoming wedding, Wet Leather joined forces after more than a three-year absence. On this particular evening at South Park Tavern, the band didn't miss a step as they plowed through their distinct brand of punk/sludge/funk. Guitarist/vocalist Nithin Kalvakota reminded us of why his absence in this town (he's currently earning his MBA at Case Western University in Cleveland) is such a glaring one. Kalvakota's vocals veered from croon to howl to falsetto, often all within a single passage. His guitar was given solid support from the stick-twirling Jay Madewell and the always-bouncing Bruce Hull. The band also tossed in a couple of choice covers by X (the one from Australia, not LA) and Agent Orange. With only two more shows lined up before the band is gone for good, you may want to check out this non-revival...
