Wow & Flutter, Virgin Islands and Cafeteria Dance Fever


Backspace (map) Northwest
Fri., April 1, 8 p.m. 2011 All Ages


More than a year after the skull-busting, hip-jerking sons-of-a-gun in the post-mod-punk group Virgin Islands released their debut EP The Age of Anxiety, the band completed their debut full-length Ernie Chambers v. God, to be released later this spring on New York label the Control Group. The straight-ahead, meat-and-potatoes rock of Virgin Islands is rife with angular and cohesive rhythmic dynamics, pitted against former Cops leader Mike Jaworski's tense political and personal vocal convictions. It's fitting that the band pays tribute to the former Nebraska state senator who sued God and was considered by some to be "the angriest man in Nebraska" (where Jaworski was born and raised). The music is angry, passionate, and speaks on behalf of a nation ready to hear something that hasn't already been said. God better have a good defense. TRAVIS RITTER
