Watch : A GET BENT! Birthday : Strychnine, The Hecks, Nones
Our friends at GET BENT! had a birthday party with some of our favorite Chicago bands. Only fitting we should go check it out. Strychnine opened it up right with some garage-punk reminiscent of the Sonics. If all is right with the world, you'll probably start seeing The Hecks around a lot more. Some seriously good Brainiac style guitar work, driving drums, and just plain refreshing songwork from a new Chicago two-piece. They just opened for Black Dice, garnering praise from more than a few people I know that had never seen 'em. Nones are on Hozac, and bring a sort of Jesus Lizard esque vibe to the closing of it all. Enjoy.
