This show is a post-punk thing no doubt. A knot of tangled musical threads twisted up for a night in Dorchester MA. DAP is the place as St Louis’ GLUED blows through, their excellent, chugging Pixies hued post-punk thread a dark maroon in color. W Mass’ Landowner bring perfecto, exacto sounds that conjure many post-punk/underground acts, yet Landowner remains their own band. Mechanics on lock down, but not song ideas on autopilot. Hott, and their thread? A neon yellow. Rong’s sound definitely bleeds into noise rocking territory, but what is noise rock if not a post-punk. Allston stink lines come off this crew furiously and their thread is a darker brown. Thighs are JP-ish by nature and could be likened to a Fipper-ish mutant punk, a curiously dark green in color.
And that knot? A disgusting rainbow, a show for you active listeners.
