Nervous Dater bring their indie pop punk to Bushwick Public House on 01.05

Nervous Dater gives us the best parts of early 00's pop punk (the energy and fun) minus the worst parts (the whiny vocals). Guitars get big and the lyrics tell stories of bad decisions, broken friendships, and feeling like a hot mess. Singer Rachel Lightner carries most of the band's tracks as if she's gleefully marinating in life's ugliness over the band's fun, catchy rock. They released full length "Don't Be A Stranger" in September 2017. Favorite lyrics: "It's hard to ask for help if you don't really want it / passed out on the train in your own vomit", "I still dress just like I'm sixteen / and I still get way too drunk during the week", and the shimmer of hope: "I'm so fucking lucky / you're so fucking lucky". They play Bushwick Public House on Friday, January 5th. We are looking forward to seeing what this band does in 2018 as their tour date book already has them playing Pouzza Fest in Montreal in the spring. - Meghan Rose





Noise-gazers Neaux release sophomore LP "Chain Up the Sun"

Neaux (pronounced "no") is duo Sierra Kay and Nick Fit. They describe their music as "the intersection of shoegaze and grunge" - which is actually pretty accurate. Sierra's wailing and delayed vocals and Nick's distorted chord progressions have a certain dark and tense quality to them, while the band's visual style matches their sonic appreciation for the '90s, as it appears evident in their music videos for the singles off "Chain Up the Sun," their sophomore album, released in November of 2017. Recent video Whistlegirl features an unsettlingly happy papier mache Mario-esque figure dancing in a living room. Favorite lyric: "just give me what i want / it doesn't have to be so hard." Favorite song: Stuck Like A..." - streaming below. - Meghan Rose

The Mendozaz - Brand New Toronto Punk Rock

The newest addition to Toronto’s punk scene…The Mendozaz bring the heat with 90’s inspired skate punk. Made up of former members of Crush Luther, The Danger Bees, Farewell Cool Reason and Divine Hammer. They released their debut record “Two Days to Retirement” this past November. It is filled with straight up pop punk tunes that could easily be heard while playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater for playstation. I hear almost a little bit of Michael Stipe in the vocals. So it’s a must-listen if you ever wondered how Stipe would sound with a 90’s punk band backing him. Johnny, Michael and Matty Mendoza have big plans for 2018 so stay tuned… - Kris Gies

Post-punk supergroup Savak plays Alphaville 1.18

With the members' resumes featuring names like Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Holy Fuck, Obits, and The Cops, Savak is an A-team of indie rock odd-balls, but the band’s music speaks for itself. Some moments come sharp with jagged edges and angular turns while others chime with rock ‘n’ roll jangle worthy of R.E.M. Savak’s 2017 album Cut-Ups shows the group flexing its creative muscle and making use of the members’ broad talents for a consistent but adventurous entry in the post-punk genre. The band will play it’s first gig of the year January 18th at Alphaville with The Effects, Patois Counselors, and Big Quiet. – Cameron Carr
