Survival Knife, Hungry Ghost 

When: Fri., May 16, 10 p.m. 2014
Price: $8-10
Ten years after the dissolution of Olympia post-hardcore legends Unwound, former frontman Justin Tropser quietly snuck back into the Northwest music scene at the helm of Survival Knife. In the two years since, the band has built a reputation for creating a meeting zone of disparate genres—the frantic energy and jerky rhythms of post-punk, mixed with occasional prog-rock song structures, power-pop hooks, and '80s metal riffs. After teasing fans with 7-inches on Kill Rock Stars and Sub Pop, Survival Knife released their first full-length a few weeks ago on Isaac Brock's Glacial Pace label. With the momentum of a new album behind them, and former Unwound drummer Sara Lund's band Hungry Ghost opening the night with their angular take on sludgy blues, this is a show well worth coming out for.
