Spider Bags/Terry Malts/Gross Ghost at The Pinhook 4/17

Spider Bags - Dan McGee Sports a Bandana
It's Tuesday night and you've seen everything on Netflix and don't feel like exercising (at least in the stereotypical way) and you're just plain old bored.  Fret (pronounced Fray, cause you're classy and French) not!  The Pinhook is offering wonderful Rock n Roll Goodies at 9 PM!  And the contents of these goodies are Spider Bags (but not drugs, you creep), Terry Malts, and Gross Ghost (interviewed HERE).  It's gonna be a rowdy rock n' roll show.

Spider Bags are basically triangle royalty at this point.  They've released two full-length albums, a slew of 7 "s, and are working on a third album.  Lately, they've been playing a lot of songs off of their upcoming album and it's a real rock n' roller.  These guys put on a great show with a lot of energy and a great amount of songs.  If you haven't seen them before, it's time that you did so now.  If you've seen them before, it's probably time you saw them again, or at least these other bands.

Terry Malts Hanging Out in Hats and Clothes
Terry Malts are garage punk in the best way.  They're coming all the way from California to play for you and only you, so you ought to support them.  The last time they came here, according to the Pinhook, they stage-dove a bunch and crowd-surfed and exuded general rowdiness.  Their music has that old-time pop sensibility that any fan of Ramone-influenced bass lines and fun melody will appreciate.  Their album "Killing Time" is fantastic and a must-listen for any fan of rock n' roll.

Finally Gross Ghost.  If you don't know 'em, dig 'em.  I just interviewed them last week and the link to the post is up in the first paragraph if you're too lazy to scroll down.  These guys play great garage rock with some psychedelia and punk in them too.  Their debut LP came out on Grip Tapes and I loved it.  It's going to be my first time seeing them live, so I'm very excited and you should be to!

Best of all, it's only a $7 show!  It's gonna be a lot of fun and a great way to spend an otherwise uneventful night.  Do yourself a favor and get hip!
