Transient, Lamprey, Pageripper 

When: Mon., Oct. 7, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
Transient have been a cornerstone of Portland's grindcore scene for quite some time now. After taking a few months off, they return tonight to celebrate the release of their self-titled debut album and kick off a tour. The band has released a handful of 7-inch splits over the years, and their first proper full-length is a striking statement, from the eye-popping cover art all the way down to the final pulverizing groove of wax. Credit to all involved in the recording for doing an outstanding job of transferring the band's fierce live show to the studio, as every bit of energy has been harnessed on these tracks. It's a fitting release for a sharpened four-piece that has been unleashing upon audiences for over half a decade, and I can't think of a better place to take it all in than on the stageless open floor of the Alleyway.
