THE WOGGLES Formed in Athens, Ga., in 1987, The Woggles are essentially a four-piece living-breathing-singing-jamming Nuggets box set impervious to the passing of time. From the matching outfits and preponderance of 7-inches to the stage-names — Professor Mighty Manfred, Flesh Hammer, Montague and Zorko — the mid-’60s are still the font of all things swinging. That also means there’s little difference in the garage-friendly blend of soul, big beat R&B, rock and surf from the band’s 1993 debut TeenDanceParty to its latest, this year’s The Big Beat. It’s all good fun, especially live in a packed sweaty club with a beverage or two under your belt. But, at least on record, it’s equally impossible not to sometimes wonder why you’re not listening instead to the early progenitors (“Maximum R&B”-era Who, Mitch Ryder, The Yardbirds, et al.) who did it first. So, you know, point being, see ’em live and quit thinking about it so much; better to just let the rock wash over you for the night and cleanse the bullshit away. With Temperance League, Modern Primitives and more as part of the 6th Annual Snug 600 which runs through Sunday; Vroom-Vroom!
