"Matt, Mark and Adam, aka Male Gaze, return quickly from the brainy roar of their previous album King Leer with their six heels hanging even further over the edge of the abyss. Good bands often pull punches but the great ones don’t and these charismatically scarred veterans of romance, gear singed from all too real firefights in the dark world of adulthood, lodge ten new slugs into your vest. Your life was spared but you’ll feel every second of the thirty five plus minutes, grateful that all you got was a bruising. Imagine what it did to them! Have you ever flung yourself out there to such a degree that you risked total humiliation if it all went south, to where the next step would be self deportation to some distant island of annihilation in your mind? How did that work out for you? Don’t worry, Male Gaze knows and they wrote some songs about it. Look out your window, down at the glittering metropolis below and listen to this album."
- Henry Rollins
Minimal rock trio from Chicago, Luggage brings you a dark melodic tone through guitarist Michael Vallera’s distant, yet resonating vocals. Some of their sequences will make you wanna bob your head as you shoegaze while others will make you break out in a full dance of post punk ecstasy.
Rolling in from Oakland California, Marbled Eye is punk fueled and ready to get us started for the night. Their recently released EP back in April is definitely worth listening in prep for tonight’s show!
