21 years and over
Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals-this is THE PACK A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic, so fierce and raw and empowering, that it's easy to forget there are just two people behind this brilliant, carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, THE PACK A.D. swallows you whole inside their fearless Franken-blend of heavy psychpop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are wild nests, human and complex: darkly funny disclosures about depression; indictments of digital excess; grief-stricken fire bombs; sly crusades against stupidity. New record, Dollhouse, out this month.
Returning to our stage are our old friends ABSOLUTELY NOT, who are always a god damn pleasure. Even more of a pleasure is when they release a new record and we celebrate it here, which is exactly what happened here back in July! They released a killer new album titled Errors via No Trend Records. ABSOLUTELY NOT plays it fast and makes it fun, without ever taking themselves too seriously. Prepare to get wet & wild with em tonight.
Local trio BEASTII refuse to be tied down to one single genre. Comprised of members of other local favorites such as SWIMSUIT ADDITION and ATOMIC LOVE, their in-your-face, blown out rock & roll simply cannot be beat.
