Chastity Belt, Pony Time, J. Sherri, Born Yesterday, Chemical Lawns @ The Doll House, Sunday Nov. 3rd
You may have already seen the above picture. Seattle’s Chastity Belt have the dubious honor of making one of those ridiculous indie band photo deals floating around the internet. Odd, then, that I can’t seem to find the list in question (so whatever). Meat-belt or no, these guys are pretty good. They kinda remind me of something Missoula’s June West might do albeit with a little more fuzz: moderately subdued jangly post-punk (kinda) stuff. If you managed to catch that Mega Bog show we put on, this is pretty close to her with the full-band.
Pony Time, also from Seattle, are coming too. More punk than Chastity Belt, I guess, but they’re coming from the same basic place (to these ears). Seattle has been pretty much ruling lately so we’re excited about this. Way to ditch that grunge-shit, guys. We knew it was only a matter of time.
This is a house show, folks. In the interest of keeping the cops away we won’t be posting the address but there is a Facebook event page thing floating around with more information on it…keep your eyes peeled. There are some cool “new” local groups playing this too and I suppose it’s a little easier to debut at a house show (it is). You know Mordecai and/or Monster With 21 Faces? Well Holt from the former and Bryan Ramirez from the latter (plus ex-Skin Flowers drummer D. Turley) have a new joint called Chemical Lawns. Also, Hana (of Needlecraft) is performing under the name Born Yesterday. Lovable art-damaged-r-n-b-disaster-punx J. SHERRI round out the shit. Should be fun. We know we’ll have some.
Chastity Belt, Pony Time, Born Yesterday, Chemical Lawns, and J. Sherri perform at the Doll House on Sunday, November 3rd. FB event page says 7pm so we’ll show up then; bring some $$$ for the touring band(s) too…don’t think there’s gonna be a proper “cover” but gas still costs money so yeah, don’t be an asshole.
