Guitar Wolf, The Coathangers, Cy Barkley, the Way Outsiders & Coward
Ever see Wild Zero, the Japanese cult movie that pits garage-rock trio Guitar Wolf against marauding aliens and zombie hordes? Catch an actual Guitar Wolf show, and you might come away suspecting it was a documentary. Deploying paint-can-shaker tempos at 747-level decibel power — not for nothing do they brand their music “jet rock ’n’ roll” — they attack eardrums with the same ferocity they whupped ass on the undead, armed with wicked coifs and windmilling theatrics to match their cycle-punk threads. They return to the Exit/In stage where founding member Billy, aka Bass Wolf, memorably smashed his instrument to splinters in the second-to-last gig he ever played, just a week before his death from a heart attack in 2005. Opening are the Coathangers, Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders, and Coward.
