Big Eyes, The Cry and Hornet Leg

Eliza Sohn

Like some sort of new school Joan Jett, Big Eyes' Kate Eldridge commands a blitzkrieg melody like few others. The Seattle trio parlays fast, cranky power-pop in the same breakneck vein as the Thermals, trading four-on-the-floor drumming back and forth with chunky, jangly guitars and impossibly catchy vocals. The band's 7-inch single from spring 2012 on Grave Mistake Records, "Back from the Moon" b/w "I Don't Care About Friday Night," expanded ever so slightly on the punched-up M.O. of 2011 debut LP Hard Life, with head-thrashing punk and good old fuck-everything, aimless rock 'n' roll abandon. For a refresher course in rebelliousness, bring your big old ears to the Know—and come early for excellent Portland psych-punks Hornet Leg. RYAN J. PRADO
