Vampires (Wpg) + Johns (Bu) + Worst Gift + Shoelace @ Smiling Buddha says
VAMPIRES Eastern Canadian Tour

OCT 4th @ Smiling Buddha

VAMPIRES (Winnipeg, MB)

"distorted, omnipresent guitars matched by distorted yet vulnerable vocals and thrashing, basement-punk drums that work together to rattle your cassette player — this is young-adult winter desperation music."

JOHNS (Buffalo, NY)

"A weird combination of dark and moody overtones to otherwise catchy and well-constructed garage rock. While much of this records retains a nice sort of post-punk melody to it songs like, “The Blurry Tongue” tread and stomp with a sort of cruel nursery rhyme quality to the lyrics, and “Here Comes the Snake” has a strong Young Widows feel to it. I guess you could say pieces of bands like The Birthday Party come to mind, if they were a little less unnerving. Honestly, I’ve never quite heard a band throw together these fairly disparate elements, but they seem to make sense all going together in an odd way. The more I listen to it the more I enjoy it."

Worst Gift

Worst Gift are made up of members of some of your faves in TONNN and Bandera (BART022). Super rythmic, head-bobbingly so, substantial post-hardcore - the kind there just isn’t enough of anymore. Worst Gift have it for you in spades.
