Cafe Nine, Saturday, April 17th,
GO KAT GO! presents:
Heavy Trash sound like a 50s garage rock band brought into the modern era. They love Buddy Holly, don't give a fuck what you think and are completely ready to kick ass on stage. The band is made up of Jon Spencer (yes, that Jon Spencer, the man himself!) and Matt Verta-Ray. These guys are taking off from New York like a bat out of hell and headed on a humongous tour. Pretty fantastic over-gained vocals, reverby surf guitar and a ton of surprising instruments blended in. This'll be a hell of a show.
Also playing will be 420 Blackbirds from New Haven, and I have no idea what they're about. They only have two songs on their myspace, one that sounds like a bunch of drunken assholes trying to play CCR songs, and the other one sounds like a jam band. Who knows.
