0 Tonight! Dog Shredder / Monogamy Party / Great Falls / Serial Hawk

It's been kind of a long week. Who needs ROCK?!

Write-ups in both The Stranger and Seattle Weekly:

Dog Shredder, Monogamy Party, Great Falls, Serial Hawk

(Comet) Remember this time last week, when you were losing your mind after being stuck in your igloo of an apartment for days because of all that snow and slush? Tonight you'd be smart to get your ass to the Comet to work out whatever's left of that stir-crazy energy with this killer bill of some of the Northwest's most brutal noisemakers. Bellingham's Dog Shredder really do shred—guitars, not dogs—and they will knock you over with their hurricane of thrashing rock. Their 10-minute jams are relentless, summoning the most wicked side of metal, hardcore, and even a little prog. Openers Serial Hawk are just as vicious, but on a more sludgy, stoner rock tip. Get in the pit. Beat down the walls. You are no longer a rat in a cage. MEGAN SELING

Recent Good To Die Records signees Monogamy Party are a riotous, punk-driven three-piece fronted by a man called “Kennedy” with more photos of his partially clothed body--most nearly naked and drenched in sweat--on the Internet than Channing Tatum. The group’s Facebook profile says they’re about “3 dudes getting weird, getting heavy,” and everything from their lambasting live show to their Chris Proff (Strong Killings, Mercy Ties, Ravenna Woods)-produced debut EP Pus City expresses this very claim. The music is driving and expansive, as on track "Hard Feelings" with its percolating bass line, metal distortion, and lyrical barrage. Sensitive indie rockers beware: you will be sweat on, pushed, shoved, and possibly crowd surfed over. All other hard rock lovers: rejoice. With Dog Shredder, Great Falls, Serial Hawk.
