Tonight: Unsane Plays the Proletariat + An Interview with the Band [6/16/2007 02:11:00 PM]:
Yep, tonight's (Saturday, June 16th
, that is) a good one -- crushing, pummeling, NYC noise-rock pioneers Unsane
are playing up at The Proletariat
, along with 400 Blows
, Mouth of the Architect
, and locals Dizzy Pilot
. Reliable sources (meaning pretty much anybody who's ever heard the damn band) say this show's gonna be freakin' insane. Seriously.
These guys came up with the whole crew of post-Sonic Youth noisemakers in NY during the late '80s and early '90s, folks like Cop Shoot Cop, Foetus (in fact, drummer Vinnie Signorelli used to play with Foetus), & the Cows, and have miraculously managed to outlive just about all of their peers. In the process, the band's influence has filtered into nearly every noisy/rock band currently out there, from The Locust to Wolf Eyes on up. If it's loud, brutal, or hateful, chances are the band's into Unsane.
Just in time for the show, by the way, SCR writer, Jonx drummer, and all-round awesome guy Danny Mee has a brand-spankin' new interview with Unsane up on the site. Check it out, then hit the show, eh? (Tickets available here.) Enjoy the noise...
