Toys That Kill, The Know It Alls, Pale Angels (Wales), Sciatic Nerve

Wednesday, May 31, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm | $10


TOYS THAT KILL
“Between F.Y.P, Toys That Kill, and Underground Railroad to Candyland, Recess Records label head Todd Congelliere has been churning out classic-style pop punk since 1989, and he’s basically never strayed far at all from that formula. It works, because this stuff never goes out of style and these bands keep coming up with hooks. Sentimental Ward, the latest album by Toys That Kill, is another winner. If you’re uninitiated and unsure of how forever-relevant these guys are, consider that they were hanging with The Dwarves and Propagandhi in the ’90s, and they’re hanging with Joyce Manor now. And it’s easy to see how anyone from The Marked Men to The Ergs to Tenement have pulled direct influence from them. Just like he was over two decades ago, Todd (and co-vocalist/guitarist Sean Cole) is writing instantly-sticky power pop with a true punk drive. It’s as raw, fuzzy and stripped-back as a good punk album should be. How can pop punk age well? By finding a timeless approach and sticking with it.”

THE KNOW IT ALLS

PALE ANGELS
Mikey Erg has played in every single pop punk band over the last five years. Think that was a joke? Here’s his résumé: the Ergs!, the Measure [sa], the Dopamines, the Unlovables, House Boat, The Slow Death, Worriers, Pity Party, and the Star Fucking Hipsters. He’s probably in your pop punk band right now, whether you realize it or not. But his new project, Pale Angels, is different. Pale Angels’ debut album, Primal Play, is fuzzier, louder, and grungier than fans of Mikey’s work might expect. The band actually got started when guitarist Mike Santostefano and bassist Jamie Morrison did an impromptu set of Nirvana covers at Fest in Gainesville two years ago. Once they got Mikey on board, the rest was reverberated history. Well, not exactly. Since Jamie lives across the ocean in Wales.” – Noisey
