Jigsaw Youth brings a blend of punk and hardcore to Trans-Pecos

In September, NYC’s Jigsaw Youth released Sorry for the Distortion, an album that follows 2017’s LP, America’s Sweethearts. Made up of Natascha Beck (guitar), Julia Mannarino (drums), and Maria Alvarez (bass/vocals), Jigsaw Youth hearken back to the relentless wrath of bands like Bikini Kill and Hole; but their inspirations draw near and far—from FIDLAR to Fugazi. They rip through a lot more than just punk in their songs, navigating hardcore, metal, and grunge influences with dexterity and fury. You can catch the trio play at Trans-Pecos on October 26th, where they’ll be playing with So Over It, Mean Siders, and Bad Kiss! - Sara Nuta

Holy Tunics Bring Jangle Pop to Alphaville tonight (10.18)

Last April, Brooklyn jangle rockers Holy Tunics put out their excellent debut LP entitled Butter Dish. On that album the four-piece breeze through ten tracks in a way that feels effortless, but never sloppy. Blending the warmth of college rock and the loose, airy melodies of more contemporary indie pop, Holy Tunics sound  familiar and fresh in a way that's reminiscent of bands like The Feelies, Real Estate, or even early R.E.M. On Butter Dish, some guitar parts are unambiguously twangy while others can veer into the more distorted direction of garage rock—but almost each track on this record is a real jam in its own right. You can catch Holy Tunics live on October 18th at Alphaville, where they’ll be playing alongside Your Dream Coat, Joy Cleaner, and Algebra II. - Sara Nuta

Dilly Dally - New Single "Doom", Lee's Palace 12.06

Dilly Dally exploded a couple years back with their hit tune “Desire” from the album “Sore”. They toured the world for a long time off that record then got quiet for a bit. Luckily it was a productive quiet and they have just released their follow up record “Heaven” which features this tune “Doom”. It begins with a dark, slow pace and a heartbeat like drum beat. The track ends up blending those eerie vibes along with catchy grunge driven melodies. If anything could be a mix of Nirvana and Alice in Chains this would be it. Dilly Dally comes home to Toronto to play Lee’s Palace on December 6th. – Kris Gies
