Downtown Boys!

So Oct. 21 is Back to the Future day or some shiz? Yeah, I’ve never seen Back to the Future, could care less. COME AT ME, BRAH. But I have recently watched Boogie Nights AND Die Hard, and I feel like a better woman for it.

Oh, funny thing: I totally said I would probably not make it to He Whose Ox Is Gored at the ZACC, but then lo and behold I strolled over there anyway. There were maybe like six people there, the band was heavy as hell and loud as fawk. I also forgot/didn’t realize that He Whose Ox has a rad lady singer? Go listen to them. I also really appreciate that it was a show that started on time, the touring band played at 9:30 PM and I was in bed at a reasonable hour. I would like to support that kind of thing as often as I can.

The founders of the Taking Back Tuesday emo night in Portland talk about their Top 5 Emo Moments, and it is worth a read if you enjoy jokes about Bright Eyes, and I do.

Hospital Job’s new LP is streaming over at For the Love of Punk. You’ll recall that they’re a rad four-piece with the same principal songwriter as the Copyrights, and a few dorks (cough) were extremely enthusiastic when they played the Palace a while back.

Downtown Boys is a kickass punk band that I wish I’d been paying attention to sooner. They’re a “bilingual political sax punk party from Providence, RI. They write songs about smashing the prison-industrial complex, racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people tell us that try to close our minds, eyes, and hearts.” Fuck yeah!

In local news, there’s a lot coming up, including another edition of the VFW’s tribute residencies on Thursday nite. Check the show calendar for some half-assed details! w00t!
