Sloppy, sweaty, slackerrific and endlessly catchy, Bass Drum of Death’s music is the simple and satisfying union of noisy garage punk and pop rock. Every bit as accessible to fans of Burger Records’ roster as it is to fans of Wavves or early Cloud Nothings, the act, which began as the solo project of John Barrett, also has real appeal to serious punk lovers. Released back in summer, Bass Drum of Death’s fourth LP, Just Business, finds Barrett pushing his crew to new experimental levels, while never losing its keen ability to invite and reward repeat listens. And for any hardcore fans who might lament the added polish the band has slowly gained with each album – rest assured, in the live setting Barrett and company let it all hang loose. ATX skuzz pop/garage psych outfit Sailor Poon, a local favorite, and SA power pop group Midnight Cleaners will open the show.
