The featured show for this week is Basketball Knees, who will be in town on June first. They will be playing at Bar Robo along with Ottawa punk trio The Pink Carpets. Cover is $10 and the doors open at 8:00pm (20:00).
With their newest album, Tank, Basketball Knees has refined and expanded on their sound. After adding the cymbal stand shredding guitar riffs of Amye Sagar with the propulsive drumming of Stefan Dos Santos, the album sits in the mid-fi range of DIY. Tank blends together humour, with more serious anxieties, as well as big hooks, quiet moments and those classic screams and fuzz. This is surely a show you want to hit.
