Two of Seattle’s hardest rocking bands celebrated the release of new material Friday at Neumos with a throbbing wall of sound that’s likely still got some ears ringing.

Hobosexual and Fox and the Law both have new albums out. “Hobosexual II” fits the duo’s M.O. perfectly. It’s a concept album set in the year 2071 that tells the story of a BMX biker gang (the Sex Destroyers) but all that is just an excuse for a furious barrage of guitarist and singer Ben Harwood’s slick, overpowering riffs and Jeff Silva’s thundering drums.

On Friday, Hobosexual used the heavy, slow-rolling blues-metal of “The Creep” to get things started. A standout track from “Hobosexual II,” it had just the right kind of menace to set the tone for the band’s set.

Rock music in the woods: Images from Timber! 2013

Timber! Outdoor Music Festival was a giant, well-organized party in the woods. Everything from the corporate and community partnerships to the facilities on site made the weekend safe, fun and memorable.

Oh, and then there were the bands. So many great bands played. See my review here and enjoy some of the indelible moments from the festival after the break.
