Later this year, STNNNG will turn 10, and with three albums under their belt, they continue to rank among the city's top live acts and most distinctive bands. Led by the dual guitar assault of Adam Burt and Nathan Nelson and the confrontational stage presence of vocalist Chris Besinger, they make a brand of hard-hitting, ear-splitting rock that continues to pack as much punch as on day one. While concerts are now a little more sporadic, that only makes catching the band live more important. Drummer Ben Ivascu is in town for only a few days between Poliça tours, and the band is making the most of it with a headlining slot at Turf Club. Chicago's Coffin Pricks and locals Bombay Sweets also play.
