New York band plays in Harbor

The quirky rock music of The Last Internationale sounds like something from the soundtrack of a Quentin Tarantino film – and will be filling the 101 Bar and Grill in Harbor Thursday night.

The New York-based band, consisting of singer/guitarist Delila Paz and lead guitarist Edgey, and sometimes additional band members, slides from smooth blues into an electric guitar and percussion heavy rock without losing the listener in the transition.

 

 

 

 

The quirky rock music of The Last Internationale sounds like something from the soundtrack of a Quentin Tarantino film – and will be filling the 101 Bar and Grill in Harbor Thursday night.

The New York-based band, consisting of singer/guitarist Delila Paz and lead guitarist Edgey, and sometimes additional band members, slides from smooth blues into an electric guitar and percussion heavy rock without losing the listener in the transition.

Paz brings her soul-charged, blues-drenched vocals with just a hint of punk, but she isn’t afraid to add a little honey to give some songs a folksy hue. 

Edgey pumps out  boot stomping riffs and fiery licks for their originals and covers such as “House of the Rising Sun” and “Smokestack Lightning.”

The Last Internationale is known for its live performances, and is scheduled to play at 9 p.m. Thursday at the 101 Bar and Grill, corner of Highway 101 and Benham Lane in Harbor. The Ashland-based rock band Hookastew will open at 7 p.m. There is no cover charge.
