The Beets are always a good time. There’s a few you’re guaranteed any time the Beets come back to town. Truly delightful jangly songs. A high-energy performance. A whole bunch of their friends who are going to come and be a little drunk and make sure that everyone’s having fun. I’ve never been to a Beets show with bad vibes, and would expect this to be no different. German Measles are also playing. German Measles are an objectively bad band. Their songs sound like songs you would write if I handed you a guitar for the first time right now and taught you five chords. It’s so ramshackley, though, that it all sort of turns out well, or at least entertaining. Despite all my best efforts, I really have a soft spot for these guys (love the song posted below). There are three other bands playing, Pink Reason, Liquor Store, and Harry and the Commish, none of which I’ve seen before and none of whose songs really compel me to give them any sort of recommendation. But they all sound like they could be good the same way German Measles are good, so I’d get there early to check them out, too.
