Qui (LA), Wild Powwers (Seattle), Constant Lovers (Seattle, w/Ben Verellen of Helms Alee)

Sunday, May 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm | $8

Rock duo based in Los Angeles mixing punk, noise and experimental rock.

Last September, Seattle’s Wild Powwers quietly released a booming, potent, and intelligent rock record. Doris Rising boasts heavy, crunching guitars and sinewy percussion, all expertly tempered by gorgeous, forceful vocals. The latter are mainly courtesy of guitar player Lara Hilgemann (formerly of the Peeping Tomboys), but backup vocals throughout the record enhance everything they touch. Bass undercurrents are handled by Jordan Gomes (Sailor Mouth), and the aforementioned drum work is that of the inimitable Lupe Flores (Tacos, the Grizzled Mighty, probably 12 other bands I don’t know about). This is one of those records you put on and then don’t turn off until it’s weeks later and you realize it’s the only thing you’ve been listening to. It’s an addicting affair, and according to Flores, the band is already at work on a new one. Get in now so you can say, “I told you so.” – The Stranger

Rollicking blistering thirty three minutes of grunge riffs and loud disjointed leads battling fever rage hollers about private parts and cookies and wheelies that are glued together by pulsing drums and bass. Constant Lovers new LP is a drunken, squealing, pounding homage to Nirvana, Swans, Pissed Jeans and Grinderman, and is a soundtrack for experiencing the feeling of feelings that are sometimes weird, like when your street meat turns out to be a fucking talking king cobra on fire.
