The Urinals, Far Corners, Man Hands, and More - Double Nickels Collective - 2/22/14
|New Mexico's Far Corners.|Benjamin Leatherman John Talley-Jones of The Urinals.
The crowd inflated noticeably as The Urinals finally blasted off. From the first song onward, they really denied all reference points. At times they stayed near the Dangerhouse Records style of punk that birthed them, but continuously proved that they had long eschewed the sort of purposefully unpracticed aesthetic from their earlier years. Their set was a shape shifter drifting from popish anthems to avant-garde garage rock. They even managed to slip in a 13th Floor Elevators cover as part of their encore.
From top to bottom, the show was well rounded and catered to a broad audience. A great way to spend a Saturday night in Tempe, and well worth the five spot entry fee.
