The deranged dementos of Drats!!! have been together for 10 years, and tonight's show not only celebrates that milestone, but ushers the Portland six-piece's latest EP, Minor Label Interest, into a world that's probably not ready for it. Flaunting a truly eclectic approach to rock 'n' roll, there is no sound or technique Drats!!! are too bashful to attempt—or can't pull off, for that matter. On Minor Label Interest, heavy, metallic rock butts up against funk-prog precision and '80s-movie-soundtrack pop; a theatrical sensibility and an absolutely ruthless punk aggression cap things off. Driven in large part by the over-the-top, one-of-a-kind vocals of bassist Chairman (also of Nasalrod), Drats!!! very literally sound like nothing else, and are all the more vital for it. Happy anniversary, weirdos. NED LANNAMANN
