DC punks (Stop Worrying and) Love the Bomb plays The Black Cat on 8/16

There’s nothing strange about loving DC-based (Stop Worrying and) Love the Bomb’s gripping punk chords, throaty vocals, and drumming worthy of aerial imitation. Featuring both female and male pipes at the mic, SWALTB’s sound is heavily influenced by the heyday of historic punk venue CBGB and reaches out to the eardrums with end-of-the-world lyrics and slick transitions from tantalizing guitar solos to meaty choruses. Their six-track LP released back in January, “Nouns,” is sure to please any fan of punk or the band’s self-carved niche of proto-post-revival. Treat your brain on 8/16 at the Black Cat to some top-tier punk. - Jonathan Goodwin





Club Violaine Show 7.14 with Plush, Pardoner, Young Lovers, and SHEER

San Francisco's PLUSH and pardoner are making rounds on their first tour together through California, and tomorrow they're hitting up Club Violaine's M-Club in Boyle Heights tomorrow, July 14. Enjoy the comforts of Sonic Youth-inspired noise-punk (pardoner), a rarity in Los Angeles, and 50's-reminisicent pop churned through fuzz and reverb aka sob rock (PLUSH).

The night will be supported by rising locals: post-rock group Young Lovers and doomgazers SHEER. If you've been to any of their recent shows you know how expansive these two can get. So you'll probably want to bring earplugs.

First band is on at 9 PM, 21+ venue and five bucks a pop. Get a taste of PLUSH and pardoner below, and gaze responsibly. - Ryan Mo





Big Frasier @ Declaration Muse: An Indie Canuck Bash

It's a gorgeous day in Southern Ontario. So what better way to enjoy then to listen to some new tuneage. Big Frasier is a 4 piece rock outfit based in Toronto. They released their latest album "Tussle" in July 2014. I jammed out to "Love is a Paperback" first. It's a pretty greasy blues based tune. Solid rhythm laying the foundation for some slippery guitar licks over top. I particularly liked the line about "woman is a danger cat"....paying homage to one of my idol's Dean Murdoch. So clearly Big Frasier knows how to giver and probably shotguns Pilsners on the reg. There's definitely some Black Keys/White Stripes influence except they have a bass player. So it's pretty bad ass to say the least. They'll be playing Porcelain Records in Hamilton on Saturday July 4th so I suggest you go get good n' sloppy.- Kris "Big City" Gies

DC's punk/emo revival duo The Obsessives release a single and announce their upcoming debut LP

Some of us are starting to feel old, hearing genre names like "emo revival". Whatever happened to emo music after those side-bangs days of myspace yore? No matter the year, there will always be kids getting their hearts broken apart and making bold eyeliner decisions, and the music must follow. DC's two-piece The Obsessives have been pals since childhood, and channeled the final bits of their collective teenage angst into a debut LP entitled "Heck No, Nancy" (a direct quote from Slaughterhouse Five). The LP was written and recorded within their last few weeks of high school and will release this September. They put a single out just a few days ago - "Daisy"- that follows two people from the first time they meet and discuss books and solitude (love-at-first-sight seems to hit peak hour during study hall/detention) to the present where their friendship "has grown into a sad display". This may be their debut LP, but it will be the duo's fourth musical release within the past three years. The Obsessive's have got the spunk of The Front Bottoms paired with the proud fetal position perfected by Dashboard Confessional. "Heck No, Nancy" is available now for pre-order via local label Near Mint on vinyl and Bandcamp.
