The Men @ DbA
The Men began part one of their celebration of their new LP Leave Home with a show at Death By Audio last night (6/15) with some help from Olympia, WA's Milk Music, Nude Beach, and Marsh Hens. The show mixed garage rock, 80s/90s punk/indie nostalgia, and hardcore into one neat and crowd-surfable package, with the crowd going apeshit for both Milk Music's Dinosaur-Jr inspired punk and The Men's arty hardcore. I missed Marsh Hens, but Nude Beach preformed some bouncy garage that was fun and danceable.
If you have the chance, don't miss either Milk Music or The Men who BOTH play NYC shows on Friday (6/17). Milk Music is currently on a US tour that recently took them to Chaos in Tejas, and they'll perform again at Bruar Falls with German Measles, Reports, Yvette, and PC Worship. $8 or your Northside Badge gets you in. The Men play Public Assembly Friday with Iceage (who are doing more NYC dates), Prurient, AnasaNude Beachi, Cult of Youth, Lost Tribe, Pop. 1280, Yellow Tears and Wes Eisold of Cold Cave (DJ set). Tickets are sold-out, but you can try your luck with a Northside badge.
