The boys behind Boston’s beloved BUFU Records have assembled an incredible lineup for TONIGHT’s show at The II Spot in Jamaica Plain that will have your ears and brain scrambling from start to finish in the most pleasantly-terrifying way possible. Headlining the insanity will be Minneapolis-based, jazz-punk provocateurs Animal Lover, who will be stumbling and screeching their way into town as part of their current jaunt around the East Coast. With a truly swingin’ undercurrent propelling their freak outs, this three piece expertly supports their neurotically scratching, post-punk guitar fits with plenty of molten, low-end bass boom to keep you suspended between sanity and psychosis from one song to the next.
Also coming through from out-of-state will be the super talented, three-piece rock deconstructionists Palberta. These girls from New York have been twisting the traditional drum set, bass, guitar, and vocals set-up into compelling new knots by trading-off instruments and sharing vocal duties from song-to-song. Yet, somehow, their tunes WILL get stuck in your head like dissonant, strangely fragmented childhood nursery rhymes. See their new split with kindredly-demented spirits (New England) Patriots for reference.
Designer are set to supply even more distorted-bass funk to this bill with buzz-saw six-string feats included. They will be releasing a new 7″ very soon on June 2nd through BUFU, which means that this show is a great opportunity to get your face ripped to shreds by some new D BOIZ tunez before they even hit the streets!
Designer’s BUFU buds, Free Pizza, will be jangling and surfing their way through their infectious take on straight-ahead rock gems. Demanding that you sing-a-long, their songs will not allow you to be in a shitty mood. It is literally not possible.
Also representing the BUFU family will be Acidosis, delivering some thrash-induced, sonic acid doses to start the night off. Crossing back and forth between punk and metal, your head will bang as though possessed by the ghosts of Boston’s aggressive music past from the opening power chord of their set.
With a wild mix of local and touring noise makers offering up a taste of rock, jazz, and the unknown, you would be making a serious mistake if you chose to forego this Friday Night BANGER!
