Urban Glacier

Urban Glacier

Panama Pete’s (formerly Dastardly’s), Ft. Lauderdale • August 28th, 1998

Urban Glacier is a band that has been on the Ft. Lauderdale music scene for some time now. Their last show was at Manhattan’s (now Gravity) last December with Company Kane and The Nocturnals and that was a show that would be hard to forget. Since then they’ve reformed, getting new members and writing new songs, and now they’re back, better than ever. The line up features Joe doing vocals, Ron on drums, Darren and Patrick on guitars, and Loren (who happens to be a Pirate Radio DJ) on bass. It must’ve been DJ’s night out since DJ Paul Castronova had his band play the Chili Pepper in Ft. Lauderdale on that same day — word was they put on a great show. Urban Glacier also did a great show, sound courtesy of Groovy of Company Kane. They opened the set with “Red” and then “Catatonic.” These were followed by “Castles,” “Black Walls” (reminds me of a club I was in recently), “Seven,” “Union Street,” the mysterious “X,” and a clever blues jam where all the members got to improvise a little bit. Very talented lead guitarist Patrick had a wireless on his guitar so he waltzed throughout the club jamming his riffs right in front of members of the audience, to their delight. The band has decided to change their name to Ice Water Mansion, so keep an ear out for more shows by this innovative and talented band.
