If you want to make sure your 2012 gets off to a raucous start, make sure you catch this performance by the high-octane Birthday Suits. The fiery local duo bring their blistering, breathless garage-rock sound to the familiar confines of the Turf Club, a venue that has seen some memorable, wildly energetic performances from them over the years. This gig shouldn't be any different, especially with fellow boisterous Twin Cities bands Blind Shake, STNNNG, and Gay Witch Abortion opening the night with their own particular brands of rowdy rock 'n' roll. For those who worry that unruly guitar rock has lately taken a back seat to a more mellow, introspective sound, this sure to be riotous show should allay all of your fears as well as shake the very foundations of the venerable St. Paul club.
