Two Shows this week

We have two shows this week; Tuesday is Free at Rubber Gloves, and Sunday begins my more steady use of Bryan St. Tavern. Check out my calendar there for future shows with Japandroids/Bass Drum of Death, Cough/The Body/Braveyoung, The War On Drugs/Purling Hiss/Carter Tanton, Pierced Arrows/Don’t, Joe Lally of Fugazi and much more.

As part of Rubber Gloves’ annual “FREE WEEK”, I am pleased to announce Brooklyn noise rock trio VAZ (ex-Hammerhead) with special guests PYGMY SHREWS also from Brooklyn. Been a fan of VAZ since their “hey day” in early 2000. They are currently on Narnack and will release Chartreuse Bull later this year. For fans of acts on LOAD Records, Three One G, Gold Standard Laboratories and Amphetamine Reptile.

A little Labor Day garage rock show for you with Nashville’s TURBO FRUITS (featuring Jonas Stein of Be Your Own Pet) who will be coming through on a short Fall tour. TURBO FRUITS are on Fat Possum, which is the current home of buzz acts: Yuck, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Bass Drum of Death (who will be at Bryan St. on Sept. 7th w/Japandroids). Turbo Fruits also run the label Turbo Time Records. Here is a recent interview with lead singer Jonas Stein.
