Some bands are heady and cerebral, expecting audiences to stand thoughtfully with arms crossed quietly enjoying their music. Others deliver bash-em-up-spit-em-out garage rock trash for listeners with short attention spans and inducing crowd-surfing, beer spilling and pogo dancing. Madison, Wisconsin’s The Hussy, a male/female duo who have been cranking out infectious two-minute blasts of shrieking, spastic guitar, and rhythmic punches since 2008, will bring the later to the table when they visit Dayton’s South Park Tavern on Sunday, March 25. The March 20 release of their sophomore LP, Weed Seizure, via Tic Tac Totally records follows a highly successful debut (Cement Tomb Mind Control in May 2011), which sold-out in under a year. The latest album delivers the crude force of bands like The Oblivians, while retaining pop centrism of artists like Ty Segall and Jay Reatard. Touring in support of two brand new 7” records, one on Italy’s Goodbye Boozy, and another on Eradicator Records, the prolific band are preparing two additional 7”s to follow their massive Midwest/East Coast tour. If hyper-active, rock and roll nuggets are your bag, this duo is not to be missed.
(The Hussy will perform March 25 at Dayton, Ohio’s South Park Tavern with The Northwest Ordinance and The Dirty Socialites. For more information about the band, visit: http://www.facebook.com/thehussyknowsall.)
