WHORES, THE NIGH ENDS
10 p.m. White Water Tavern.
Atlanta trio Whores finds the sweet spot in the Bermuda Triangle of moody post-hardcore, the groove-focused metal of early Rollins Band or Helmet and the more sludgy of first wave of grunge bands. There's also a misanthropic Amphetamine Reptile Records-type vibe going on with the group's 2011 EP "Ruiner." Just check out some of the song titles: "Daddy's Money," "Fake Life," "Shower Time," "Straight Down." Harsh stuff for sure, or as the band's online bio states: "Good times, bad vibes."
Opening up is The Nigh Ends, a newish rock 'n' roll concern with veterans of such notable local outfits as Smoke Up Johnny, Eclipse Glasses and numerous other bands, specifically, Alan Disaster, Matt Floyd, Nate Moore and Kyle Carpenter. Regarding sounds, Moore mentioned The Wipers and The Saints. Disaster seconded The Wipers influence, adding "but the chord progressions are starting to get real dark. It's tough." I have no doubts whatsoever about those claims.
After the jump, check out the track "Daddy's Money" by Whores.
