SMALL, Scratch-offs, Bass Drum Of Death
Thursday September 7, 2023 08:00 PM EDT
CRITIC’S PICK: SMALL is anything but, if you didn’t get that from their ironically capitalized, band name. This chaotic trio just released two new singles in June and they’re exactly what every local punk needs. “Telephone” and “Cosmos are upbeat, danceable tunes with a common stylistic theme of chaos. Their raucous vocals and deep-cutting lyricism make for the perfect punk sound. Also on this bill is local post-punk five-piece Scratch-Offs, a perfect compliment to SMALL. Scratch-offs only have a few released singles, “Text Fight and “Jesus Night,” but both should be a good indication that they know what they’re doing. Mike Ligocki’s vocals have a classic punk rock feel with a distinct sound that could only be his. Don’t miss either of these locals at The Earl with Bass Drum of Death on Sept. 7. — Jessica Goodson
