New Pissed Jeans LP Available for Streaming

Sub Pop mainstays Pissed Jeans recently premiered their fifth album, Why Love Now, over at Noisey. The Philly via Allentown four-piece recruited the help of Sumerlands' Arthur Rizk and punk/no-wave legend Lydia Lunch to produce its latest. The band's innate ability to come together to create cathartic anthems spotlighting the soul-crushing, mundane aspects of life keeps us dialed in - that and the fact that Pissed Jeans is one of the best live bands out there. Why Love Now officially comes out this Friday, February 24, and Pissed Jeans will be hosting a couple of intimate hometown shows at Boot & Saddle on Friday, March 10 and PhilaMOCA on Saturday, March 10. You need to grab your tix immediately before both shows eventually sell out.

Cardinals Transform With Release of Acoustic EP Aftertaste

 After a whirlwind year of recording and touring, Boston pop-punkers Tighticus Finch have flown from the nest as Cardinals.  Equipped with a new acoustic EP, Aftertaste, duo Emily Ronna and CJ Rarela are putting the proverbial (and literal) band back together, harnessing the energy of Finch and the mature emotional content that comes with a year of new experiences.  The highlight track for us is "Of Montreal", a ballad that puts Ronna's vocals to the test (which she passes).  Check them out live at Bungalow Bar & Grill in Manchester, NH with Woven in Hiatus, Paper Monsters, Hours North, and The Grebes. -Brian Varneke

Turn! Turn! Turn! Keeping Tonight's Show Despite General Strike

Portland is a city of protesting. Our propensity to come together in revolt against major issues afflcting society is one of the greater characteristics of the city, as is what is offered locally in music. Today, most of the country has been participating in the General Strike against President fuck up Donald Trump prior to Monday's President's Day. Those striking haven't been partaking in any activities, especially ones that benefit the country's capatlistic benefit. 

For the most part, everyone wants to aid in spreading this message of strong displeasure, which obviously leaves venues with things scheduled today at a bit of an impasse. Northeast all ages venue Turn! Turn! Turn! was presented with this same problem, and has decided to move forward with the great show they have scheduled for tonight, where Blesst Chest, Sad Horse and Lithics are set to play.

On the decision, Turn! Turn! Turn! said:

After much deliberation between Turn! Turn! Turn!, its employees, the bands and others willing to share their input, we have decided to be open and have our show as scheduled February 17, the day of the general strike. This was a difficult decision, as everyone involved with this show sympathizes with the aims of the strike. Ultimately, we had the opportunity to do more good by having the show than not. To that end, we are making the show free so you don’t have to open your wallet. However, we will be accepting donations at the door for IRCO (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization) and Portland Homeless Family Solutions. In addition, Turn! will be offering an all-Portland tap list and spirits by Portland distilleries. Those willing and able to spend a few bucks at the bar will also be supporting IRCO and PHFS, as we’ll donate between 25% (for non-donated kegs) and 50% for donated kegs to these organizations. 

End your day of striking the right way by heading up to Northeast Killingsworth with some cash in hand.

Grunge-psych rockers Citris play Arlene's Grocery 2/21, release new album 2/24

Citris might just sound like what their name implies---sweet, but with a serious bite. The Brooklyn-based band melds psych elements with the grit of mid-90's grunge to create tunes that kick, but are immediately compelling. You can catch Citris live at Arlene's Grocery 2/21 as part of their month residency alongside Caretaker, Wreath, Itamar, and Jak the Lizard, but also be sure to keep your eyes peeled for their new LP dropping 2/24.-Olivia Sisinni

Mood Music: Piss Test - "Vegan Coffee"

 The next few days will be marked by Portland punx Piss Test, who are playing two shows within the next three days. Tomorrow they'll be hitting up High Water Mark for a Mississippi Studios and Do503 curated show with Memphis riot grrrl revivalists Nots and locals Patsy's Rats. On Saturday, they'll be taking the stage again with garage post-punk acts Lunch, Petite and the Bellicose Minds as part of celebrating the latter's Incision EP release.

Pumping us up for all the upcoming Piss Test punkness, we've been repeatedly playing their boisterous love song "Vegan Coffee," coming off their third self titled EP. It's got an addicting rhythm and enough energy to serve as sonic caffeine itself, making it hard to not want more and more of.
