Thursday, June 3rd: SONIC AVENUES + TRANZMITORS and guests JETWOLF
Sonic Avenues serve up a self-titled stable of '77-indebted punky power-pop songs that should delight fans of the Briefs' more moderated moments or Buzzcocks circa Singles Going Steady. Maybe you could even say the Exploding Hearts...but to even mention them as a comparison still seems a bit generous.
Out of Vancouver BC comes The Tranzmitors, dressed like Mods and sounding like power poppin', new wavin' punks of 1982. A potent combination to be sure. Their debut release on Deranged Records was so good that the new wave label of the 80s, Stiff, resurected itself just to release the disk in Europe. Along with The Briefs and The Cute Lepers, The Tranzmitors are one of the best bands that hearken back to that original punk sound.
Doors: 8:30 pm, $8/$6 Members
