One of our favorite bands from Austin, TX to play our stage each of the past two years, SPRAY PAINT are old homies at this point and they hit our stage once again with that no wave punk that'll bring you to your knees. Chainsaw dual-guitars collide brain-bashing drums and energy-packed gang-vocals for a no-bullshit, off-kilter yet tuneful taste of unrelenting rock. The Chicago Reader got all wet after hearing the band's second LP of 2013, Rodeo Songs: "Bizarre detuned guitar licks cross paths with damaged, drugcentric lyrics delivered in the band's signature deadpan drawl. The whole thing is kind of gross and unsettling—but I mean that in the best way possible." Their 2014 record, Clean Blood, Regular Acid, followed by last month's Punter's On A Barge, continue the trio's vicious attack in a tighter, more cohesive package and that would make our annual top 10 list, if we were the types to make such a list. STRANGE WILDS is bringing their heavy west coast power trio to the Bottle for the first time and its going to be a rockin' good time. Formed in 2012, the band released its full-length debut Subjective Concepts this past summer on the esteemed Sub Pop Records. Hearkening back to the pacific Northwest's gloriously grungy 90's, the group has everything you could want in a young power trio: Loud, heavy gloom and doom that gets your blood boiling. DIRTY GHOSTS is opening the evening with their unique brand of angular pop rock. Bouncing around on Burger Records and Last Gang, this San Francisco lo-fi trio includes no-nonsense vocals mixed with stabbing guitars and bubbling synths. The music is nothing short of danceable, so don't be afraid to bust a move early, if that's what you're into. There's a limited number of $5 tickets available so get your ass in gear.
