Paper Tiger Hosting Puro Punk Lineup, Including San Antonio's Own Murdered Out


  • Ground Control Touring
This bill is pure, unadulterated punk fuck all. The Spits, a low-key punk legend from Michigan, is a seasoned garage punk act that makes fast, dirty and gloriously sloppy racket that incorporates psychedelic flourishes, synthesizers and belligerent lyrics to outsized effect.

The Spits, underground stalwarts since 2000, will be joined on this bill by likeminded Houston band The Cops, which plays aggressive and fuzzy punk rock that, as the name suggests, frequently critiques law enforcement. By presenting, in first person, a slimy and corrupt cop character in its lyrics, The Cops make music that feels dark as fuck, if only because it feels so close to the truth. Check out the band’s 2017 release First Offense at Local punk crew Murdered Out will round out this gnarly bill.

$15, Fri July 20, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
