Sat 3/16 A Mouth Is A Mouth Noise Fest Part IV: Evicshen, Birthday Ass, Johnnie and the Foodmasters, THIGHS, Pain Chain, Eric Baylies, Healers co, Klyam Haus Band @Trixie’s Palace 4:20-11:30pm All Ages $5-10
Straight from Kids Like You & Me to your big old bulging ear-balls, the bands at this month’s A Mouth Is A Mouth Noise Fest might just blow off your peepers / peekers. Floss your brain with harsh noise from Lowell’s very own Pain Chain. Then, stuff your face with nostalgic supermarket-core kids Johnnie and the Foodmasters. Turn up at 4:20 sharp to catch the brand new upstarts, including a couple acts too out-there for even the internet. And keep a special (disembodied) ear out for standout strange birds Healers co, who have put out three releases this year including a cassette on Ingrown Records. Their really happening June record, Live from Indecency, is dark comedy by the wails and whistles of your most distorted lofi dreams.
With the brilliant, studied Victoria Shen headlining, you’re sure to feel the pulse of analog synths sucking you into the blades of Mouth Is A Mouth’s industrial fan and leaving you there. C’est la vie. Evicshen follows the scattered genius of Birthday Ass, Boston art rock mad-persons of ERASED! Tapes fame. Because if nothing has you there already, rest assured vocalist Priya Carlberg’s lyrics and arrangements for trumpet, guitar, bass, drums and sax will gently grate you into cheese. With all these sick weirdos around, we promise you’ll be able to stand through a seven hour show. Or will you levitate?
