What comes to mind when you imagine the words HOT SLUDGE? Does it conjure up images of carnage and destruction – toxic gunk surging over the city, covering all in a slimey ooze of semi-liquid chaos? Some bizarro repetition of the notorious Great Boston Molasses Disaster of 1919? Well its a perfect metaphor for this gruesome mini-fest happening TODAY at O’Brien’s in Allston. Subterranean purveyors of all that rot and rocks – OPEN LOOP brings together a host of demon grippers and noise-focused dragon slayers. Stellar line-up includes ripping doom heads PRIZEHOG, garage rollickers VAZ, interstellar noise jammers GOD’S DOGS, new locals RAW BLOW (featuring members of Furnace and Now Denial) cinematic electro-acoustic experimenteur DREKKA (Indiana), Philly noise gurgler UNCLE FRANK, and blasted greasers KTB. So find yourself some earplugs and suck on this sludge.
