White Fang w/ Numerators and Magic Johnson Friday at East End

Sometimes I find myself in the mood for poorly produced music. Just focusing on some passion rolling through the cones of your speakers can relax the inner critic. No need to strain the ears for chord changes or ruffle your cerebral cortex in an effort to detect if the vocalist is slightly sharp of flat. Just enjoy it; loud, mangy, guitar-driven garage rock for your pleasure.

Please direct your attention to the White Fang show with Numerators and Magic Johnson at East End this Friday starting at 9 p.m. Also, make sure to check out White Fang's fun short video (for a short song) for the track, "Space Gemz,"

White Fang released their first record fall of last year entitled Pure Evil, which Willamette Week reviewed saying, "Pure Evil is the rare record where everything sounds like crap—only, you know, in a good way."

 


Enjoy, kids! Show is 21 and over, and will set you back a meager $6.

The Day's Weight at Northeastern 4/8

It must be tough to have an apostrophe in your band's name - but I guess that's how you weed out the articulate from the people who don't care.

I care, and you should. The Day's Weight will be playing with Delta Spirit and Movers and Shakers tomorrow night, Thursday, April 8th at Northeastern's afterHOURS club. The show starts around 7:30 p.m.

If The Day's Weight strikes a familiar chord, it's because they played to a sold out room at The Deli's Boston launch party last November.  Though Pat McDermott and Kyle Toomey grew up together playing music in the outskirts of Boston, the band officially hails from Burlington, VT. The two have gathered a strong assortment of musicians from LA to Berklee, and have basically brought together some serious sound.

Dark but refreshing, The Day's Weight bring the old west to Indie rock.  McDermott's voice defines the band's persona - a voice steeped in sexuality and somehow familiar.  Each song successfully tells a story, and they'll make sure to drive it home. I think they'll impress the Delta Spirit crowd - which means it's worth being on time for this show.

The War On Drugs Totally Killin’ My Buzz Man at KFN April 7

So how about that potential decriminalization of pot, huh? Now that is what I call progress. Why I bring this up is that one of Philly’s bigger success stories, and pot naysayers (we don’t really believe that), The War On Drugs, are bringing it home tonight at JB’s spunky little neighbor down the street Kung Fu Necktie. The War on Drugs’ own blissed out takes on Petty tinged jams with wall-to-wall feedback and perfectly imperfect Dylan-esque vocals have earned them spots touring with the likes of The Hold Steady and Wilco. The band have been riding the hype of their debut album, Wagonwheel Blues, on Secret Canadian in 2008, but a new album is near completion and should be reaching out to eager ears soon. I’m sure they are going to play a bunch of new stuff, so that’s even more reason to get out tonight! The show is also going to have former 2007 Deli NYC Poll Top Performer and now LA natives High Places on the bill. They have this Beach House meets Lali Puna thing going for them. Also the feminine half of the duo is quite a cutie so that’s a major plus. Don’t miss this super intimate show with two bands that are sure to be making waves on the shores of the indie scene for years to come. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $10, 21+ myspace.com/thewarondrugs - Adam G.
