Trash + DIY Sluts + BARB
Trash are a band from from Portland that started in 2017. Members of Lost Nerves, Steel Chains, Creature To Creature and The Observers playing high-energy punk.
“The punk threepiece, made up of Andrea (guitar, lead vocals), Jules (bass, vocals) and Kris (drums, vocals), released their second album Everlasting Itch this summer, a slap-happy mix of the familiar and their own goofy creativity. “Riot grrrl” is rightly called out as a tired label applied to any fiery female-led group, but it is more than apt here. DIY Sluts have the same lo-fi looseness of Bratmobile in their surfy guitar and impassioned yell-singing, mixing in touches of more contemporary Pacific Northwest punks, including CHILDBIRTH. Like that Seattle band, DIY Sluts have a tongue-in-cheek attitude that makes their observations on sexuality and criticisms of society more than biting—they’re also just really, really fun.” – PASTE
“Swamp gumbo, gothic post-punk band with members of various Portland groups (Big Black Cloud, Bobby Peru, Sista Fist, Cool Flowers). Questionably described as heavy metal Joy Division and Danzig meets B-52s. Album coming soon!”
