Club Bohemia GBG
Well look what we have here. An evening of local Rock ‘n’ Roll slime prime time on Friday, October 24th at Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge basement) in Cambridge.

Some of the juiciest of slime is smeared all over this show. We’ll be popping our Big Buck Hunter cherries, a must see. Perhaps, you have seen them before OR you can pop yours with us too. So much popping going on here. http://bigbuckhunter.bandcamp.com/

The chilll psych pop waves of Phaze is in the house. It’s a mixed cocktail of dream pop, garage, and psychedelia to keep you twirling into the night. http://allstontapes.bandcamp.com/

The demented outsider Rolling Rock kitsch of Gangbang Gordon is always a trick or treat to fill your little bellies. http://gangbanggordon.com/

Ravi Shavi, one of Providence’s finest, will headline and steal your soul with their sizzling, revolution rock. Put your ass to the floor. http://ravishavi.bandcamp.com/

Ausmuteants @ Barack’s Barracks WED OCT 1!

Tomorrow – or today – or yesterday – depending on when you are looking at this. Hopefully, sometime before 7 PM on Wednesday, October 1. ‘Cuz that’s when Australia’s Ausmuteants are playing at Barack’s Barracks in Boston, Massachusetts!! Courtesy of our show-throwing pals B.O.W. SHOWS and with Phantom Rides and Longings.

I feel like I’ve seen Ausmuteants and I did, of course, virtually at GONER FEST where they absolutely ran through a nutty set. I was really feelin’ it, this is gonna cap off an insane couple a weeks for us KLYAMers – Ty, Black Lips, King Khan and BBQ, and now Ausmuteants. The Aussies are newer to the game, but they got the hard-hitting synth/guitar punk jams – one of the best bands in the world per the trustworthy Bobby Hussy designation and I agree there.

Mannequin Pussy “Clue Juice” Vid / Show 2/15 @ Ill Spot

Mannequin Pussy, “Clue Juice” from Impose on Vimeo.

Brooklyn’s Mannequin Pussy put out a well fueled rock ‘n roll long play in 2013 called Gypsy Pervert; “Clue Juice” from that album got a video premiere at Impose a little while ago. It features some neat live footage.

For a similar scene, head over to Ill Spot here in BOSTON on Saturday, February 15, where MP will be playing! This 2nd Chance Valentine Show is sure to in the words of Ben Katzman ROK

I only caught a mere few minutes of Mannequin Pussy when they came around town with Lust-Cats of the Gutters in October so this time I KNOW to make proper arrangements to catch it ALL.
