Soccer Mom, Soft Pyramids, Endless Jags, Boom Said Thunder | TT The Bear's Place, Cambridge | 23 Jan.
We wanted to briefly but heartily endorse this excellent rock and roll program occurring tomorrow at TT The Bear's. It's been a very high priority of ours to see Portland, ME's Endless Jags ever since the sextet delivered its brilliant self-titled EP in the fall. Unfortunately, we're currently battling illness and may have to miss the show, but we exhort rock fans to get out and see what these guys are all about. Exhortation, however, should not even be necessary, as tomorrow's is an exceptional bill, top-lined as it is by Clicky Clicky-faves Soccer Mom and featuring formidable additional local support from Soft Pyramids and the exceedingly fuzzy Boom Said Thunder. Soccer Mom continue to plot a new release and the Facebook indicates they were in the studio in recent days, and you can bet we will keep you apprised closely of their goings-on. We've been waiting for a new collection from Soft Pyramids ever since becoming addicted to their tune "Vaalbara," which was the lead track on As Built PR's 2012 SXSW comp that you can still download right here. The band's most recent release is the "Bad Actors" b/w "Cover It Up" single from last summer. Boom Said Thunder will release a full-length Exist in March; the trio's previously released, propulsive Boom! EP is apparently sold out of physical units, although the digital can still be obtained from Bandcamp via the embed below. Full details at this Facebook event page. Get on the bus, Gus.
