Uniform, Shredded Nerve, Super Secret Special Guests Thursday March 3, 8 pm at The Acheron: $10 – $12
Next week Uniform returns to the stage following a show with the Soft Moon earlier this month at Market Hotel. This time, they’ll take their rip-roaring noise punk act to the Acheron where the band will be joined by some super mysterious, ultra top-secret special guests plus one ear-splitting noise set by an act most beloved. Expect speedy, metallic guitar monologues, speaker-quashing feedback, and vocal chord shredding screams.
We’re not really all that into surprises. The chances of looking your birthday best after busting open your apartment door to find a surprise party are pretty low, especially considering it’s the one day each year that you leave your pants unbuttoned all the way from the dollar slice place back home. And let’s be real, those grab-bag things are usually filled with plastic dinosaurs, expired condoms, and airplane bottles, anyway– things only a child could love. But when Baby’s All Right threw another one of these secret shows back in December, they gifted us Blood Orange. And even though it would be kind of a not-surprise surprise, we’d be totally cool with another Blood Orange show.
Tonight, SummerScreen takes over McCarren Park for an evening of free music and a screening of “Peewee’s Big Adventure.” Starting at 7pm, you’ll hear from power-pop dudes Oberhofer, saxo-pop outfit Bueno, and self-described neo-noir punk trio LODRO.
We thought this an opportune moment to chat with LODRO frontwoman Lesley Hann, formerly of the Fat Possum band Friends. Where Friends brought a funk-tinged take on the ‘60s girl-group pop sound with tracks like “Friend Crush,” Bushwick-based up-and-comers LODRO sound decidedly more Wednesday Addams-goes-to-Glasslands Gallery.
