Beech Creeps @ MHOW 2/13/2016
Beech Creeps, which features ex-Ex Models’ Zach Lehrhoff and The Library is On Fire’s Mark Shue, have been together for a couple years now, making the kind of scuzzy, no-nonsense rock n’ roll that New York has always done well. 2015 saw them release their debut LP, and a lineup change: the band now have Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) on drums. They’ve got a new 7″ coming out February 27 via Monofonus Press, you can check out “Creeps Can’t Swim” in this post. It’s a ripper and you can stream it below.
The band will play a 7″ release party at Brooklyn’s Alphaville on February 23 with Squad Car and Suspect. That show also serves as the kickoff of a short tour that will wind its way through the Midwest before returning for another Brooklyn show: Union Pool on March 5 with The Yin Yangs, Rathaus and headliners The Men. Tickets to both the NYC shows are on sale now.
Meanwhile, Beech Creeps played Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (2/13), opening for Protomartyr and Priests, and delivered an intense, killer set. They are clearly having fun, but there is as much finesse here as there is attitude and grit. We’ll have pictures of Protomartyr and Priests up soon but more pics from Beech Creeps’ set are below….
