Show Crush: Mean Creek (EP Release) / Taxpayer / GIRLFRIENDS / Dirty Dishes at the Brighton Music Hall Saturday

January 28, 2011

A week ago, Ashley Willard sent me a message that read “I have a surprise for you!!!” What followed was a link that invited me to to a blissed out dance party for my ears: Mean Creek’s brand-spankin’ new EP, “Hemophiliac.” The next few days were filled with the record pumping through my brain; the combination of boot-in-the-ass guitars, perfect harmonies, thought provoking lyrics and a tug and pull rhythm section makes it easy to see why these songs can so easily lodge firmly in your head for days.

Though you may have already heard this barn burner, the band will be releasing physical copies on Saturday night at the Brighton Music Hall in scenic Allston (it’s also Chris Keene’s birthday so make sure he gets good and loaded). Dirty Dishes will get the show going with their psychedelic swirl of fuzz and drone. BMA nominated surf-punk slayers, Girlfriends bring the thunder after that with old friends Taxpayer hopefully leaving the room still standing and your ears still intact for the guests of honor.
