This is a past event.

The No Tomorrow Boys, The Cry, Stumblebum, A Happy Death 

When: Fri., Dec. 28, 9 p.m. 2012
Doug Rogers took the reins of Slabtown back in February, and he's closing out 2012 with a bang: a four-day weekend with some of his favorite bands that have played the club since his tenure started. Tonight kicks things off in fine form with a quartet of Portland's rowdiest and rockingest. The No Tomorrow Boys kick out punk-rock jams performed at full speed, and their 2012 Animal Eyes 7-inch is appealingly cloaked in rockabilly reverb, like Eddie Cochrane and the Ramones co-hosting an all-night kegger. The Cry, meanwhile, have a splendid power-pop platter with their self-titled debut, packed with glam-rock teenage kicks. Stumblebum makes roaring, angry punk that would make Lemmy's mole tremble in fear. And A Happy Death makes lysergic, spookily romantic psych rock for your prettiest waking nightmares. The weekend progresses—regresses?—all the way up until New Year's Eve, with a bill featuring Bloodtypes, Chemicals, and Fasters. NED LANNAMANN
