Curse Purse (ex-Speedy Ortiz) — videos, EP stream, NYC show this weekend w/ Gary Panter, Samara Lubelski & more

by Andrew Sacher

Curse Purse

Last year, guitarist Matt Robidoux left Speedy Ortiz and focused instead on his noisier band Pony Bones. Matt since formed an even noisier band, Curse Purse, whose lineup also includes Ted Lee of Zebu and Miss Olivia Kennett. They played their first show in late July and released a self-titled EP on Feeding Tube Records in November which is mostly devoid of all melody and song structure. Check that out, plus the video for its opening track and a video of their first live show, below.

Curse Purse will come to NYC this weekend for a show on Sunday (1/18) at Palisades, where they’ll be performing a set featuring outsider/punk artist Gary Panter. Also on the bill is a duo set from Chelsea Light Moving’s Samara Lubelski and Marcia Bassett, CE Schneider Topical (members of another Feeding Tube band, Blanche Blanche Blanche), KHF, and Blessed Thistle. It’s their only upcoming show we’re aware of at the moment.
