Led by funhouse punks New Labor, a blistering lineup will descend on Nick & Eddie's for the band's 7-inch release party. Vocalist Andy Bauer ranges from speak-sing to croon to full-lung screams when the time is right, fluidly maintaining a common energy and melody while the songs zig and zag across the musical spectrum over two-to-three-minute bursts. The band's fluid transitions made the tempo changes look easy, despite the manic tone. Also playing are Disasteratti, who, on the heels of their new album Transmissionary, will debut new drummer Jack Kalyuzhny, and Les Deux Magots and Safewords.
