Hemlock New Year's Eve Bash with Scraper, The World, Tough Customer, Love Birds
Simplistic, tightly controlled negativity that crushes the fine line between panic and frenzy into oblivion. A rapid attack of artillery-mimicking snare and bass heavy hunch is the canon, wrought in a Bay Area sewer and reveling in a verminous infestation of post-punk pulse: think WIRE versus THE SPITS in a Shaolin death trap. Necessary indictments of dot-com Silicon scum manifest in Rodent while Clones and Reaction drive the point with unparalleled frustration and an uncanny ability to deliver remarkable rocknrattle. SCRAPER administers a deliberate slug to the gut, never fucking around with pretty boy gimmicks and pretense, and Misery is the rabid battle cry. (bio)

Were in Leeds in 1979. Kingston, 1968. Or is it Athens, Georgia in 1982? No, no, its none of the above. Here we are in Oakland, California. The year is 2016 and The World offer the only glimmers of hope in a city rapidly transforming into a wasteland of artisanal toast and succulent shops right before our very eyes. Theyve awed all those who have seen them play in San Francisco basements, beach town bars, crowded East Bay loftswho knew the sight of bongos could be so titillating? And now The World is ready for the world. Their debut 7 is all double sax attack, the tremolo of dub guitar, and those spare and sturdy drums, anchored by the gravitational pull of Ambers propulsive bass. Every member of this band feels like the secret weapon, and together, the combination is deadly, the particular alchemy of musicians (the best musicians) who voraciously consume music of all kinds. Members have done time in Andy Human and the Reptoids, Pang, and Penny Machinedevotees of all those will find much to like here. The Worlds a post-punk band, sure, but theyre also a dance group, a wild and revolutionary art collective, sounds from the past catapulted to the future. Today your love, tomorrow The World. Join up.

Artsy but punk-informed street poetry rock from Vancouver.

San Francisco jangle pop, formed in 2016. Featuring members the Dripmen, Flail, Mozart, and the Byrds.

Ticket includes complimentary champagne toast at midnight!!!
