First Annual Pardi Gras Crawfish Boil feat. K-Holes, Call Of the Wild, & Cy Barkley and the Way OutsidersPop/Rock
Sunday afternoon at The Stone Fox will start nicely enough, with a big ol’ Louisiana crawfish boil, brewed up by master of the pots Jonas Stein, and a DJ set with David from Sparkle City. Then it’s going to get a little weird. When I compare Brooklyn’s K-holes to The Velvet Underground, I don’t mean the fractured pop of “Who Loves the Sun.” I’m talking about stretching out the dissonant break from “Venus in Furs” like sonic nightmare taffy. K-Holes bill themselves as escapists, but not in the passive sense of creating an imaginary world: They hope their chaotic sax squeals and kinetic free-association garage riffs inspire audiences to slip the surly bonds of mainstream commercialism. Call of the Wild, also of Brooklyn, and locals Cy Barkley and The Way Outsiders (whose “So Bad” made our Best Local Rock of 2012 podcast) both use a take-no-prisoners hardcore style, while maintaining instrumental chops and a keen ear for melody beneath their sonic assault. All-you-can-eat crawfish is $20, and includes admission to the show (come early if you want to grub, supplies are limited). Show-only cover is $7.
