In 2011, Plow United resumed their punk-rock identities after reforming to civilian life for 13 years, and now they’re gearing up to release their first full-length record in 15 years, Marching Band. Having spent the last couple years revamping old tunes with re-releases and re-masters, they’ve finally reached the point of creation. Tonight, they’ll test out some of their new jams at the Barbary along with locals The Holy Mess, NONA, and Ma Jolie. This is a red-hot bill, and it represents an exciting moment for punk veterans Plow United. Be on the lookout for Marching Band, out April 2 on Jump Start Records. If you don’t wanna wait, pre-order it here, stream it at Brooklyn Vegan or listen to “Human 2000″ below.
World / Inferno Friendship Society will stop by Union Transfer tonight to deliver their consistently unpredictable mixture of bizarre punk romps and biting, über-conscious rants to an all-ages crowd. If you have never seen this band, it’s highly recommended that you attend. There’s nothing repetitive about seeing these folks play live, for as frequently as they play, they never seem to rely very much on convention. If anything, they get off on switching it up; usually performing with around seven or eight members, the band has more than thirty official members, which contributes to the constant variations in their performances. Opening acts are two groups that display a very similar penchant for the theatrical: Rasputina from New York, and Stolen Babies from California. Tickets and information can be found at the venue’s website. Below, watch World / Inferno playing “I Just Make Faces” at The First Unitarian Church in 2007.
Local singer / songwriter Anjuli Josephine will play her cool blend of indie and blues tonight at the Tin Angel in Old City. Anjuli plays with a full band, but her voice is the focus of sweet blues tunes. Support for the show is another local act, iNFiNiEN, a group that does experimental fusion that’s heavy on the jazz, with a bit of psychedelic influence. Tickets and information can be found here. Below, watch Anjuli’s video for “New Love.”
