Speedy Ortiz tour with Thurston Moore

Speedy Ortiz tour with Thurston Moore

Speedy Ortiz is a year old post-punk band featuring former members of Quilty. A total no brainer for classic 90s noise rock fans, they channel the metallic guitars and distortion-heavy hooks that made bands like Sonic Youth fixture. Speedy Ortiz brings plenty of their own songwriting savvy to the table. They’ll be playing with the legendary Sonic Youth frontman himself for a few dates to promote their "Sports" EP. The Northampton natives define themselves as “snack rock” – you can pick up the slacker vibe from the tunes on the EP, sports theme aside. They definitely deliver the noise on tracks like "Silver Spring" (streaming below) which invites you to yell along with singer Sadie Dupuis’ jilting vocals, which she complements with some spooky yells of her own. - Hillary Anderson
