The Freaks of Nature - The Lost Leaf - 1/18/14

The Freaks of Nature have It. Whether it is charisma, spunk, panache, chutzpah, or a mix of everything and more the Valley-based proto-punks are entertaining as hell. They play a fast-paced style of rock that is as easy to shake and shimmy to as it is to mosh.

At their 1 a.m. Saturday night set at the Lost Leaf, the Freaks had more of a shake-and-shimmy crowd than a mosh crowd, but either way, the Freaks had the dance floor packed at the the little venue on Fifth and Roosevelt.
