Bad Side Opening for NOBUNNY at Underground Arts Feb. 7

Sometimes bands ease their way in gradually building in energy before reaching a high point, Bad Side is not one of those bands. Rather than climbing the stairs and celebrating at the top, the group unloads a full-scale attack with an immediate hardcore edge. A jarring stampede approach characterizes the instrumentation that embraces controlled outbursts. While the momentum driven avalanche of sound has raw moments, the drums and bass smashing their way through, creating an open space for the vocals and guitar to do work, the group harnesses its collective ferocity finding a path to follow. Local rockers The Whips will be unveiling their new guitarist Kyle Seely. With grimy guitar riffs, a psychedelic twist and a forward thrust, Wisconsin duo The Hussy fills out a bill that will open for the always unpredictable NOBUNNY at Underground Arts tonight. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Shambles, Rebuilder, Save Ends and Laureate to Play Bishop and Rook Birthday Show on February 15

Fellow Boston-area blogger Kristin Nicholls (who operates the local music review Bishop and Rook) will be hosting a night of punk rock on February 15th in conjunction with RTT Presents and Refuse Rethink Rebuild Records at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston, MA. The lineup is packed with energy from start to finish with performances from Shambles, Rebuilder, Save Ends and Laureate (Montreal). The show also happens to fall on Kristin’s 30th birthday, so stop by, wish her a happy birthday, drink some PBRs and listen to some totally rad local (and international) tunes.

The show starts at 8PM. $8 cover, 21+. Proper ID required.

Kay Leotard Double Down on Psychedelic Rock

Kay Leotard’s Kristina Boswell and Kelsey Wickliffe double the drama with their sensual, psychedelic rock anthems. Warbling vocals paired with powerhouse guitar riffs create a stunning contrast that will put you in touch with your flower child. Put your “palms to the sky” for this badass band. -Written by Gillian Driscoll
