YAIRMS (+ AlHHLA, FAMILY PLANNING, & SLOOPY COOS CANYON)
ART/MUSIC HOUSE // SATURDAY 10:00 PM

Their raw rhythmic sound is accompanied by soaring vocals and uncompromising hooks, creating a sonic blend appealing to fans of punk and indie alike. Like White Reaper? Listen to Yairms! Like Fleet Foxes? Check out Yairms! Basically, you should be listening to Yairms right now. Or on Saturday. At ArtMuho.
New Mexico group AlhhlA’s sound is made up of a blend of sick electric guitar riffs, complicated heavy beats, and a little unplaceable magic. They’ve has been touring alongside Yairms for the better part of 2015, spreading their brand of experimental pop across the country.
A baby, an ugly pig's head, a dancing monster, a yellow raincoat, a high grav forty, and a thousand cakes; apparently all these things describe Family Planning. Hailing from the depths of somewhere in Maine, this self-described avant-garde easy listening takes a cacaphony of soothing and frantic guitar riffs, high-twingy vocals, cool and strange lyrics and ties it all into upbeat songs you can’t help groovin to.
Sloopy Coos Canyon, composed of Erin McGrath (‘16), Nicole Roman-Johnston (‘16) and Luke Macdonald (‘17) played a kickin’ MASH set, and now they’re back with more “blood rock,” ready to take on ArtMuHo!
