It’s strange to think of !!! as the MySpace generation’s Sly & The Family Stone, but that’s what they looked like at Sunset Junction: A multi-ethnic bunch of groovers intent on getting booties across Sunset Blvd. thumping — with inspiration. Then again, Sly was a groundbreaking, unifying act and the profanity-laced !!! still sound more suited to sweaty, PBR-drenched loft party stuff white people like than dancing for change. So much for the youth vote.
