Rubblebucket at the Doug Fir 10/12
Anna McClain // Editor
Last week Brooklyn band Rubblebucket brought their pop-filled performance art to the Doug Fir Lounge. I thought the opening band, Canadian “mad-scientists of pop” a.k.a. Royal Canoe, was energetic until I witnessed the abandon with which Rubblebucket’s five members played live.

KLC Weekend Picks (10/17-10/19)
Yo Peeps! It’s that time of week again, known none other than the weekend. Time to shoot up a healthy dose of life, to end a week’s worth of monotonous strife. Treatment comes in the form of surf rock wonder and Post-Grunge fun-der. I tried to keep the rhyme going and pretty much knocked it out of the park (in my opinion). Anyway, here’s where you can find us freestyling this weekend.
All-Ages: The Growlers, beach-Goth from Dana Point, CA, are at the Alhambra Theatre and they’re bringing along The Garden (Orange, CA). The Growlers’ eerie surf rock always ensures the best sense of uneasiness one can feel (Brooks Neilsen calls it love). Joining them is the new wave hardcore twin brothers that make The Garden. All they need is a bass guitar, drums, and a little reverb to have even the most straight-edge of punks grinding in da clubs.
Price- Alhambra Set is sold out, but there is a FREE set at Music Millennium (6pm)
Doors 8pm/ Show 9pm
All-Ages: Ab-Soul, Rapper outta Carson, CA, is at the Alhambra for all you West Coast rap aficionados. He is one of the primary members of Kendrick Lamar’s rap label Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) and hip-hop group Black Hippy.
Price- $25 ($100 for a meet and greet/ask him to talk about DMT)
Doors 8:30pm/ Show 9pm
21 and over: Naomi Punk, post-grunge from Olympia, Washington, are at Audiocinema. I know you need some punk rock in your veins and Day 2 of the “Lose Yr Mind” mini-festival will give that to you. Naomi Punk just released their new album Television Man that brought distortion to new heights combining the slow-burning Washington (state) Grunge and raw energy of hardcore punk. Prepare to be impressed, depressed, or de-stressed a lot of feels are headed your way.
All-Ages: Kick it old school on Sunday with the Melvins who are playing at the Roseland Theater. Some classic Grunge and Drone Metal and a band that probably influenced the bands that influence who you’re listening to today (these geezers formed in 1983). Not only do you get to listen to some rad tunes, but there is an off chance that their distortion will cause them to explode into dust and the late-30’s hipster next you might think it’s bitchin’ and want to start a Harold and Maude relationship from sharing this experience.
Price- $16 pre-sale/ $20 Door
Show- Doors 7pm/ Show 8pm
