EX-CULT, OBN III’s, Hidden Ritual


Signed to Tennessee powerhouse/Reatard museum Goner Records, EX-CULT survived a minor name change in 2011, when New York techno label Sex Cult forced the band to drop the “s” from their title. Down on the street, down on their luck, the Memphis punks discuss the economy of vice and the vigilant eye of the police on the Ty Segall-produced “M.P.D.”

In 2014, Austin’s OBN III’s were treated to a recording on the Castle Face label’s Live In San Francisco series. On “If The Shit Fits,” frontman Orville Bateman Neeley improvises trash talk on the sartorial choices of his Bay Area audience. If the guitar crunch and indomitable shredding suggests anything, it’s that the OBN III’s prefer their t-shirts ripped and their showers infrequent.

Hidden Ritual understands the importance of a simple backbeat and funhouse delay. On a recent performance on Last Call With Carson Daly, the Austinites sound like downtown legends Suicide with a bassline stirring up trouble. With Summer Moon. $8, 9pm, The Ten Eleven, 1011 Avenue B, (210) 320-9080
