Speed Up w/Slow Animal at Toby’s Purgatory May 9

Slow Animal released their new EP The Other Side earlier this week. It demonstrates that the duo of Alex Karaba and Dan Colanduno can generate an infectious mood-driven piece of work. Actively noisy percussion-led instrumentation helps propel/articulate its emotive lyrical agenda. It’s that combination of enthusiastic aggression of drums and guitar with a somewhat grey narrative aesthetic that creates intriguing results. Speaking of grey, self-proclaimed “Sad Rockers” Olive Drab is also on bill tonight at Toby’s Purgatory. The group’s latest LP The Big Sleep represents a melting pot of varying temperaments spilled out on the musical canvas for all to see and hear. Lyrically playfully pop-punk outfit Ted Nguyent and Blue Smiley round out the bill. Toby’s Purgatory, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, Free, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Ted Nguyent Opening for Ghost Light & Slutever at Clown Can Country Club March 22

Sleep disorders often lead to interesting, yet curious behavior; excessive and pointless Internet research, surmising impractical scenarios, and obsessing over the best possible ways in which to deal with them (see: zombies) are all things that I can attribute to having too much time before my brain and body escape to that idle state. Sometimes, you lay awake and think about super groups of musicians unrealistically joining forces in a most rock and roll pursuit. This one time, I thought about how cool it would be for Stephen Malkmus of Pavement to front a math rock band that could be, but not necessarily Tera Melos. These thoughts seemed impossible, and I disregarded them as both naïve and idealistic. That was until I heard the music of Ted Nguyent. If you have seen a show flyer in recent months, then you probably have become familiar with the name. These basement dwellers have been hitting the underground circuit hard, lending their sound to any space that could be considered a venue. Their full-length is set to drop, and is promised to be every bit the Adderall-induced punk that your brain can handle. They'll be performing tonight at Clown Can Country Club along with bratty favorites Slutever, fresh from their recent sophomore trip to SXSW. Also making an appearance will be much-beloved emotive indie act Ghost Light. Clown Can Country Club, (Please contact one of the acts or the venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $5, All Ages - Ed Newton
