Catching Speedy Ortiz at The Stone Fox tonight will be a wise decision! They’re the kind of self-assertive, minimalist fuzz-rock band that is fueled by a live connection of raw lyrics and punk pit groove endorphins. Their latest album, Major Arcana, was inspired by a book lead singer Sadie Dupuis (a young, ominous songwriter-poet / writing and composition teacher) read about the history of the occult. READ ON>>>
Major Arcana features lyrics like:
Gather round so empty now / All you got is spineless sound / I want the truth even if I gotta rip it from you
Medicate me now I’m slumping / Cause I’ve got nothin, I’ve got nothin / Why you take and take me my friend I’ve got nothin, I’ve got nothin / Moral is you’re moral-less but you left somethin on my lips a mark so sick, a mark so sick
Her thoughts aren’t all perfect darkness, she humors in her writing as well, like in this recent tweet:
heading to chik-fil-a so i can take a shit on the floor

On February 11, the Northampton, MA road warriors will release Real Hair, a 4-track nugget that reveals a new chapter with the same entanglement of enthrallment of their previous art, featuring lyrics such as “someone who sleeps with her neck in reverse.”

GRASS IS GREEN
GRASS IS GREEN defines their genre as “post-dick wave.” Enough said! Listen & ponder…
Guess what? Gnarwal was born in Nashville in “2007ish.” You know how you can tell? Because they’re pretty great players. Chappy Hull (guitars/ vocals) has an awesome scream voice to combat with Tyler Coburn’s (drums / “sometimes vocals”) sickening energized, double bass beats.
Speedy Ortiz, Grass Is Greener, and Gnarwal will perform TONIGHT at The Stone Fox. The show is 18+, begins at 9:00pm (doors at 8:00pm), and tickets are available for $7.
