MOTHER SUPERIOR WANTS TO SUCK YOUR BLOOD
9 p.m. July 31 at Shantytown Pub in Springfield, $5 suggested donation.
Mother Superior is the newest addition to local label Infintesmal Records, known for putting out Duval’s best post-punk, indie and garage rock music. The band is a perfect fit for the label, with a super-scratchy, distortion-heavy sound and lots of feedback. Unique to the band, though, are the singer’s use of almost-whiny pop-punk vocals and a snarky sense of humor. It’s a bit sloppy, but a lot of fun, with lyrics like “I’m going to kill you, baby, ooh lalala. I’m going to suck your blood like Dracula.” Austin’s post-punks Vetter Kids (pictured) headline. They’re so good they got a shout out from music elitist blog Brooklyn Vegan. Bravo, guys.
