Big Black Cloud, Towers, Toim, A Volcano 

When: Sat., Aug. 2, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $5
The Mercury doesn't currently offer an award for best album title of the year, but I think we need to change that, as local noise-rockers Big Black Cloud have a new cassette called Lessons in Fuck You 2. Right? Award-winning stuff right there. The trio of Nick Capello, Soo Koelbli, and Travis Wainwright have made a punishing but very fun record of violent smash-rock and horrific outer-space encounters, further evidence of what happens when DIY punk is fearlessly taken to its powerful extremes. With two brilliant albums under their belt—Dark Age and Black Friday—and now the new tape, Big Black Cloud are quite simply one of the best bands in town, heavy or otherwise. Turn up Lessons in Fuck You 2 as loud as you can and tell me it doesn't feel good. NED LANNAMANN
