PREMIERE: The Reverberations - "Mess Up Your Mind"

 The Reverberations make you take a trip back in time to rock's golden era of the 60's, with their keen ability to dial in to the classics without seeming forced or stale. They bring that element of lighthearted fun that made 60's era garage and psychedelia so alluring (well, fun and drugs).

Each member steadily grew and established their musical prowess in other bands like The CRY! and Sundaze, bringing each of their individual talents together in a way that doesn't sound like your standard fuzzed out band.

The Reverberations are gearing up to release their new LP Mess Up Your Mind. If the title track is any indication of how the rest of the album will sound, then we're all in for a tripped out treat.

Check out the premiere track "Mess Up Your Mind" below.

Preview: White Mystery + Mister Tang at Bunk 11.1

The day after Halloween is the perfect time to gently nurse your hangover (with candy), wipe the residual makeup and fake blood off your body (with candy wrappers), kick your feet up (on your heap of candy), have a couple Reese’s for breakfast, snort some pixie stix and GET HYPER, MAN! Then bring all that sticky, sugary energy down to Bunk Bar (1028 SE Water Ave, Portland, OR 97214) for some wacky and frenetic jollification with White Mystery, The Cry, Mister Tang, and DJ Andrew Loomis (of Dead Moon!).

Chicago’s own brother-sister powerduo White Mystery is a sludgy rock band best compared, fortuitously, to Nashville’s own brother-brother powerduo Jeff the Brotherhood. They play the same brand of cheeky, shreddy, fuzz-saturated, burners. Also they’re rocking the Orange amp so you can bet they’ll be playing heavy enough to have you involuntarily bowing down after a single power chord.

Have you ever noticed a group of 3-4 startlingly well-dressed neo-modsters with that Manchester haircut stalking local shows and wondered if they’re all in a band? That’s The Cry. Their ’60s inspired garage-pop is so sticky sweet you won’t be sure if its the music or the Jolly Ranchers in your ears. Afterward, Mister Tang will corrode said Jolly Ranchers out of those ears with their acidic, lo-fi, garage-punk jams.

To cap off the night, buy a damn sandwich and get something else in your system besides sugar for god’s sake. That shit’s bad for you.

Verner Pantons at Valentines 3.16.2014

Among selfies, teenage twerking and insincere social networking, there's authenticity left in modern day culture. On March 16th,  The Verner Pantons will be performing at Valentines with The Cry and Chantrelles (members of Modern Kin and Tiger House). The Verner Pantons have been creating engaging rock n roll since 2010, with generous influence from  60s pop art and the underground. Their recordings present clean and flowery lullabies, but their live performance asserts rowdiness and far more energy than what could be experienced without the band members standing right in front of you. Stand-out single "Melancholy Girl" could easily entice the aforementioned twerking teenagers while simultaneously charming your sweet grandma. Bands with that type of power demand attention and this show demands your attendance. This show will also serve as the record release party for The Cry's newest album Dangerous Game. - Colette Pomerleau
