Wednesday night the basement of First Unitarian transformed into a pit of sweat, punks, and straight-up killer rock. The heat was on from the first fuzzed-out notes of Jacuzzi Boys‘ set through the roiling energy of King Tuff, peaking searingly with WAVVES‘ kinetic blitz. As the mercury rose, kids started thrashing and diving off the stage like atoms following the gas laws. And for some reason there was a merch guy dresses as a Telletubby. Thank the Great Spirit for that.
