Helms Alee, Kowloon Walled City, The Narrows, Cower
$8, Doors 8, Music 9
Our Sphinxlike leader, Hollie Huthman is celebrating her birthday in typical Bosslady style. By that I mean that this bill is clearly unfuckwithable, but full of love, as is Hollie herself.
According to their fb page: "Helms Alee are friends that write and play music together. We have been Helms Alee since October of 2007." We think that may be the understatement of the century. Helms Alee is heavy as hammered shit, and totally sublime - but you already know that, don't you?
Kowloon Walled City
On Brutal Panda Records (along with Harkonen, Fight Amp, Atlas Moth, and other greats), Kowloon Walled City is a 4-piece band from San Francisco, formed in 2007. They play smart music for dumb people, generally at excessive volume in dubious tunings. And we love them.
Bring your earplugs and your brains. You'll need both.
They broke our heart when they moved away last year and took a metric shit-ton of the Heavy with them. Don't show up late and miss one of our favorite Bellingham bands. Ever.
