Baltimore’s ROOMRUNNER has risen from the ashes of debilitating post-punk trio DOUBLE DAGGER to attack listeners with their off-kilter guitar abuse in the vein of U.S. MAPLE, CHAVEZ and POLVO. Building songs off huge radio rock riffs, written and recorded by former DD drummer DENNY BOWEN, ROOMRUNNER are as punishing as they are catchy, and their 2012 12” Super Vague clocks in at 12-minutes of straight-up brutality. This is a rock band – come enjoy their live rock music that Pitchfork hails for its “fit of vintage-amp and drumset torture.” Featuring members of CACAW, GA’AN and CAVE, progressive speed metal power trio ZATH return with ear-splitting intensity, as well as a new album that they’ll be slinging for your bleeding brain. Don’t miss the violent power that these gents consistently bring to the stage. Heavy new-wavers GERONIMO! makes their Bottle-debut tonight after criss-crossing around the states in support of their excellent new album Examinate. And honestly, that new record totally kicks ass. NILE DROWN are a bunch of noobs who don’t play like a bunch of noobs; in fact, they rock the fuck out and are proud to rock infinitely harder than Cleveland, Ohio. Take that, Drew Carey!
