Come out to Allston TONIGHT and treat your ears to some midweek madness at O’Brien’s! The clipped-out, messed-up garage jams of Astral Gunk will leave you dripping in their frenzy: bluesy psych curlicue licks packed onto revved-up punk rock feel like 0-to-60 in 2.5 seconds on a dirt-bike. The impassioned Oohs-and-Ahhs of The Monsieurs serve up tunes that are pleasingly tinny, pleasantly trashy, and perfectly twisted. Guilty Party is heavy and crazed, using punchy accents and crashing cymbals to spin big ol’ melodic circles. And the bop-rock grooves of Headband combine strange yet somehow mystical lyrics – “Made it to the top of the dude pile” – with jumpy hooks and catchy gritty lead lines. Beat this muggy Wednesday with a dose of Boston’s sleaziest garage rock!
