Perhaps what has always anchored punk is simple, steady 4/4 drumming. Where hardcore veered off into flailing haymaker percussion, ’90s college rock bands like Sleater-Kinney opted for tighter but no less punchy jabs. Janet Weiss of the aforementioned Pacific Northwest staple has brought the distinctive style to countless Portland acts, from Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Wild Flag, and now to the new local super-group Slang. The band features former Thermals bassist Kathy Foster, Viva Voce guitarist Anita Lee Elliott, and Modern Kin vocalist Drew Grow. With just a single track released thus far, the fiery X-influenced garage rock banger “Warm Enough,” Slang is playing their first hometown show alongside Foster’s other band Hurry Up and Black Belt Eagle Scout, whose excellent 2017 debut Mother of My Children via Portland’s Good Cheer Records is set to be re-released through Saddle Creek Records next month.
