June 27 EARLY SHOW: F*cking Hotlights/Tyranny Is Tyranny

Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

June 27 EARLY SHOW: F*cking Hotlights/Tyranny Is Tyranny

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 5:30pm (Happy Hour?)
$5 High Noon Saloon

=> The Fucking Hotlights
(Primal post-hardcore from Buffalo NY)

So there's a lot of well-deserved chatter and hype about Obits and their hybrid of classic-rock swagger and hardcore/noiserock grit. For my money, though, The Fucking Hotlights are way more visceral and rewarding. This Buffalo NY outfit ups the ante by throwing in some nods to Jesus Lizard and Circus Lupus and churns out a record that epitomizes fuck-all rock and roll. Dig it.

=> Tyranny Is Tyranny
(Post-metal from members of The United Sons of Toil)

Tyranny is simpler and heavier than USoT. Like USoT, Tyranny is influenced by the 90s noiserock of Amphetamine Reptile but also draws inspiration from the post-rock/post-metal hybrids of bands like Cult of Luna and Fall of Efrafa. As hinted at by the titular homage to historian Howard Zinn, the lyrical themes are an excoriation of capitalism.

This is in two days. The Hotlights are on tour and awesome so you should come see them. Do you like Drive Like Jehu/Hot Snakes/Obits and their ilk? Then you should DEFINITELY be there.
