Fu Manchu Performing The Action is Go in its Entirety/Bloodnstuff/The Suede Brothers 

When: Sat., April 13, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $13 ADV, $15 DOS
Named after the fictional character found in Brit author Sax Rohmer’s novels, Fu Manchu was a key player in the ’90s stoner rock scene that saw the emergence of Kyuss (which would morph into Queens of the Stone Age), Monster Magnet and Masters of Reality. The sludge-y music is really just an update of the sound that Black Sabbath pioneered. And yet, it’s good fun, especially if you’re prone to smoking herb. The band’s 1997 opus, The Action is Go, was perhaps the best distillation of its sound. The album opens with the hard-hitting “Evil Eye” and then reels things in for tracks such as the simmering “Urethane” and the bluesy “Burning Road.” The band’s gone through numerous line-up changes in the course of 25 years, but the one constant is singer-guitarist Scott Hill who will lead the band tonight as it plays The Action is Go in its entirey.
