Missoula’s Memorial Day Weekend in Rock: Black Bananas, White Suns
May 25, 2012 § Leave a comment
Missoula Punk News will be quiet over the next few days, because your faithful editor won’t have internet access while camping at Sasquatch.
I know. I KNOW. God, don’t look at me like that. My 58-year-old biker dad is more stoked about the headliners Jack White and Beck than I am. But there are some acts I’m looking forward to seeing, and four days of camping with your buddies and drinking beer is awesome no matter what.
Assuming I don’t get a lethal dose of hipster smugness at the Gorge, I will return to ‘Zoola and its lovely, dark basement dives next week. In the meantime, check out these awesome Missoula shows, and send me any show reviews, band profiles or album reviews you’d like to see posted!
Friday, Black Bananas will rock out at the Palace with openers including Shahs. “The fruit is ripe and the bread will be FRESH,” says their site. 9 p.m., $8 and 21+.
Black Bananas recently changed their name from RTX. Here’s the RTX track that inspired the new name. Sounds like a good time:
As for Saturday, your menu options include White Suns at the VFW, a noise/hardcore band all the way from New York Citay, with guests Monsters with 21 Faces, Burke Jam and Abe Coley. 10 p.m., $3, 21+.
Over at Zombie Tool’s headquarters, Throne of Lies, Shramana, Gretchen and the Mount Poverty Well Diggers will grace Zombie Tool’s headquarters at 1909 Wyoming Street. $9 p.m, cover and age group not listed (so that’s your cue to show up, minors/freeloaders/freeloading minors.)
And Sunday night, Vanna Inget will bring their Swedish punk sounds to the VFW with openers Shahs and Needlecraft. 10 p.m., $5, 21+.
