If we move past the obvious party metal comparison and the unpleasant imagery of the name (sorry if you’re not already picturing an entire planet of diarrhea), Diarrhea Planet is a hardworking band with a more-than-devoted fan base that has successfully transitioned themselves from a “buzz band” to a mainstay in the rock scene.
The sextet from Nashville, TN consistently owns and stays true to their image and sound, one that is eccentric, a little droll, but never hackneyed. They are a well-oiled arena punk machine with classic riffage and the energy of a loaded bottle rocket. Think Andrew W.K. meets The Afghan Whigs meets Heavy Cream.
Last time Diarrhea Planet was in town, the guys played Mohawk on a Monday, and it looks like they’re keeping up this trend. If you’re feeling lethargic from the work week already, showing up at Mohawk Place tonight is a no-brainer.
Doors are at 7pm, and if you don’t already have a ticket, you can grab one for $12 upon your arrival.
