The Stork Club

Review by Jake Thomas
Punk matinee show at the Stork! I love it…I won’t get into my love of the early show like I always do, but just know it’s one of my favorite things ever.
I didn’t really know anything about these bands, but my friend Missy said they were ace and that was enough for me. Both of these groups were on tour from Atlanta (known as “Hotlanta” back home in North Carolina), shared a guitarist, and were pretty fucking great.
I lean just slightly towards liking Beat Beat Beat more – they had a tinge more pop to their sound, kinda like a less glam Exploding Hearts maybe; and maybe it’s just the name but a comparison to the Damned could be made as well. I was into their set from start to finish, and eagerly anticipate the release of their album on Dirtnap this fall (specifically, it is coming out on Halloween which really seemed to make the guitarist I spoke too after their set quite happy).
