Soundcheck ventured with a degree of trepidation to the Summit Saloon loft this past week to check out Tweak Bird, a quietly buzzed about duo that blew into town last Tuesday as part of the Volcom tour. (It has something to do with snowboarding, we gather.)

For our efforts we were treated to a roughly half hour set of sonic awesomeness that channeled Geezer Butler through a pair of waifish riffers who hammered away on Sabbath-inspired hooks while producing vocal harmonies (If you can call them that) worthy of the name Tweak Bird. Like a middle-aged John cruising the streets of their hometown Los Angeles, the Tweakers didn't go in for a lot of talking. They went about their business before a somewhat puzzled, but not totally sedate crowd of beanie-wearing Dude Bros who despite their own penchant for conformance seemed to appreciate the Tweakers' sonic singularity. Oh yeah, Kandi Coded played, too.
