Dependably scuzzy and brutish, Baltimore’s favorite noise-rock goons DOPE BODY continue to explore sonic mutations of their assaultive sludge-punk on their latest LP Natural History, out this month via Drag City. DOPE BODY has been called a punk band, mostly for lack of a better term, that comes across at once garage-y retro but at the same time quite the opposite of retro; a band that could chuck the past altogether and call it sci-fi punk. At the end of the day, doesn’t really matter what you call it as, in the words of Impose, this effort “continues their quest to build and demolish their ugly fucked take on heavy, anthemic 90s alternative radio rock.” ROACH BEACH revel in fast, thrashy, explosive, sludgy, dreary stoner punk and the tracks on their Space Trash split 7” out this past spring boil over with the addition of GEORGE HUNTER’s rich, rough and drawling vocals. Local rabble rousers THE HECKS open tonight’s scuzz fest.
