Bullets or Balloons, Bandit Train

When: Sat., March 15, 10 p.m. 2014

Frontman Chris Henderson sing-talks his way through Bullets or Balloons songs. Over Aaron Anderberg’s technically raging bass playing and Cory Mason Phipps’ wild drum kit, the vocal works marvelously. The band, with roots in Spokane, now resides in Olympia. But this weekend they’re back to make things super loud at the Baby Bar. Expect new songs in the set. As Bullets or Balloons’ Facebook page stipulates: “With their powers combined, they have created utter bullshit” — and while that may be true, it’s the best bullshit possible.
