Local H, Bad Veins and Against the Raging Tide


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Mon., June 2, 7 p.m. 2014 All Ages


It wouldn't be wrong to call Local H a one-hit wonder, but it's a little bit like only knowing Joy Division for "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Or maybe the Butthole Surfers' "Pepper" is a better parallel. Both are a stretch, sure, but what I'm getting at is there are a ton of Local H songs way cooler than "Bound for the Floor." That song made them a '90s footnote in the post-Nirvana major-label feeding frenzy, but the duo's blend of grungy hard rock, Cheap Trick power-pop, and smirking lyrics has aged well. "Bound for the Floor" is still pretty good, too. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
