Stop by Bottom of the Hill on Thursday, July 26th for a wild punk/garage-rock show featuring King Tuff, Jaill, and The Coathangers. The three bands are teaming up for a California tour from Sacramento to San Diego.
King Tuff is the energetic, LA-based garage rock project of Vermont’s Kyle Thomas. His eponymous sophomore album was released in May on Sub Pop, an impressive follow-up to his 2008 solo debut Was Dead. The sound of the King Tuff LP channels the fun, whiney charisma of Hunx and His Punx combined with the raucous guitar rock enthusiasm of Ty Segall. Thomas’ scruffy headbanger persona is sure to rouse audiences as he rocks the stage with his guitar named Jazijoo. Listen to album highlight “Bad Thing” below.
A Milwaukee indie rock trio, Jaill consists of Vincent Kircher, Austin Dutmer, and Andrew Harris. Their latest album, Traps, was released last month on Sub Pop. Blending psych-pop, punk, and garage rock, Jaill creates a fun and engaging rock and roll vibe. Stream Traps in its entirety via Sub Pop’s Soundcloud.
The Coathangers are an all female punk-rock quartet from Atlanta, Georgia. Signed to Suicide Squeeze Records, these badass brunettes pack a punch on stage. Originally thrown together as a joke, the band members adopted the aliases Minnie Coathanger, Crook Kid Coathanger, BeBe Coathanger, and Rusty Coathanger. Be sure to arrive early to catch their ass-kicking live set. Check out their recent single, “Smother.”
Catch all three bands at Bottom of the Hill on July 26th. You can probably expect to be covered in beer by the time the show is over, but it will certainly be worth it. Bagel Radio will be presenting the event, with DJ Ted spinning tracks between bands.
