This Sunday, The Shanty plays host to a tremendous rock show featuring a diverse lineup that is not to be missed.
Portland’s The Suicide Notes make their triumphant return to Eureka along with tourmates and fellow Portland residents Sex Crime. The Suicide Notes play incredibly infectious rock n’ roll led by three female vocalists and former Humboldt resident Patrick Foss on guitar. Their website states “think The Shangri-La’s doing it with the Ramones, in the back of a hearse.” Sex Crime is also female-fronted and could be described as “Synth Punk” or possibly even “New Wave.”
They’ll be joined by Oakland’s Major Powers and the Lo-Fi Symphony. They label themselves as “Adventure Rock,” sounding very much like Queen, but only have three band members.
Rounding out the bill is Eureka’s own synth-poppers Blood Gnome.
While it’s billed as a “pre-Memorial Day Unofficial Kinetic Freakout,” the show is also a rarity as it features tremendous talent from outside of our area for a ridiculously low cover.
