It’s all in the title but, rick puts it well
SHEARING PINX are embarking on their first tour since re-expanding to a three-piece band after last year’s loss of Erin to Eastern Canada, and subsequent stripped-down, less improvisational duo exchanges of founding members Nic and Jeremy. They’ve drafted Jesse from Twin Crystals (formerly Nic’s bandmate in Channels 3 + 4) to bolster Nic’s guitar and vocal efforts. This band has never failed to blow the roof off the joint anytime and anyplace they’ve played between Sacramento and Davis (which has averaged almost twice per year over the last half decade), and with Jesse involved, surely this will be a major rager that should not be missed by fans of early Sonic Youth, Killing Joke, and the music of the original heyday of “no wave” in New York in the late 70s.
GAARTH invoke a reign of vegetarian terror with their black metal onslaught, and because they’re super-sweet dudes that you know well from Produce Produce, you can have fun raging to their fury.
WRECK & REFERENCE bring the intersection of math and hardcore forward from the Touch & Go sound of the late 80s/early 90s forward to today to include all the last two decades of metallic impressions. If you’re a fan of “Spiderland” by Slint and recent offerings from Hydra Head or Ipecac, imagine all of that coming together in the best way.
WORLD-LOSERS are back after a long hiatus and much urging on my part to play their first duo exchange between drummer Lien and guitarist Victor. They’re specialty is shredding psych-punk a’la early work of Japanese psych-rock legends High Rise with killer, face-melting guitar snarl-outs and powerfully grooving drumwork with some nifty jazzy moments, too.
