Nothing like a last minute recommendation. If you’re going to be in Harvard Square tonight, run right over to Charlies Kitchen (at 10 Eliot Street) for a full night of raucous (and probably hideously loud) rock ‘n’ roll. From the line-up, it looks like hardcore punkers from Providence, Weak Teeth, are headlining, which is probably as it should be, because really, how does one follow an over-the-top, full-on pummeling screamfest?
But never mind about that; the band I want to talk about is smack dab in the middle of this 5-band extravaganza. Together just since 2010, Philly-based Luther has already toured with The Bouncing Souls, Cheap Girls, The Menzingers, Hot Water Music, The Smoking Popes, and have performed at SXSW. Rambunctious and bursting with energy with nice, noisy but tuneful guitars and pleasantly exuberant vocals, it’s a good sound. How’s that for a quick assessment? They’ll be releasing their debut full-length album, Let’s Get You Somewhere Else, on October 9 on Chunksaah Records. It was recorded and produced by Pete Steinkopf of The Bouncing Souls.
If you like what you hear, they’ll also be performing in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Philly, Asbury Park, and in parts South. See their site for details.
