This was originally a five band bill, with four touring bands descending upon our sleepy hamlet with a well-meaning sneer. But God hates bands with vans. Inflatable Best Friend and Brother Gruesome ended up stuck out in God knows where with a transmission that wouldn’t push past second gear. In a world where the police get a real kick out of pulling over a band on tour, the highway is not a kind place for people who can’t drive faster than 25 miles per hour.
But don’t sweat: the Flower House will not abandon you. Blessed State, as has been noted both on the event page and in their Bandcamp tags, will be bringing some excellent Hüsker Dü-esque vibes. Worn Leather will be bringing some cagey, move-yourself-around-already punk. And Radical Operations, your local heroes, will be grinding it out. They’ve got a song called “Paranoid of Cum” and if that doesn’t inspire enough curiosity in you to consider checking out the show, nothing will.
Six bucks at the door, starts at 7 pm. Facebook event here. Check out Blessed State below.
