This is a past event.

Melt-Banana, Retox, Aranya 

When: Sun., Oct. 2, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-13
Convulsive Japanese art-punks Melt-Banana are gonna fuck you up. I mean, good God, have you ever heard a band this fast and spastic? Somewhere between Boredoms on sherm sticks and Merzbow having a seizure, Melt-Banana make the kind of piss-pants music that belongs in the record books. If the band's intense speed and writhing guitar noise aren't enough to trip you up, the canine yip-yap of singer Yasuko Onuki will surely milk your spine to trigger a number of bad acid flashbacks. And, oh yeah, you're gonna wanna monitor your alcohol consumption more closely, too. Sure, the band might have already played through 20 songs, but wait... it's only been half an hour. Listen, I'm not saying you shouldn't go to this show, just don't tell your sponsor. CHRIS CANTINO
