Young Adults with Ringo Deathstarr | Great Scott, Boston | July 2
We don't know how to make this more plain: next Saturday night's show at Boston's Great Scott with Austin-based shoegaze assassins Ringo Deathstarr and local ambient punk heroes Young Adults may very well be the show of the summer. By our count it is The Deathstarr's third area gig, although coincidentally (or not?) we've been violently ill for the trio's past two Boston dates and therefore we have yet to see their brand of deafening chaos live. We'll have an interview with Ringo Deathstarr online later this week and will offer more exposition about them then. Saturday will also be the first time we've seen Young Adults, again due to a series of unfortunate circumstances. Bostonians with their ear to the ground can breathe a sigh of relief: while founding Young Adults bassist Demitri Swan has left the band, Chris and Kurt Villon have recruited a successor and plan to continue Young Adults' remarkable rise out of the basements of Allston-Brighton and into the regional and even international consciousness. Tickets are allegedly still available for the show; don't be stupid. Prague-based Amdiscs is still selling Young Adults' debut full-length Black Hole as an LP or digital download right here.
