Young Jesus (+ Pope, & Saint Something)
Earth House // Friday 10:00PM
Young Jesus is a versatile quartet out of Los Angeles, California. They effortlessly ebb in and out of genres from punk to jazz to rock ‘n’ roll to grunge. In doing so, they utilize the full dynamic range of all their instruments. Kern Haug’s drums range from thoughtful to heavy. The bass and guitar range from ambient to distortion-rattled and hectic. The ever-vulnerable vocals of John Rossiter range from the feel of a man talking to himself in a room to a rough, gravelly yell. All of it is melded into brilliant tensions and releases throughout their 2 LP catalogue of studio-recorded songs. Their latest album “S / T” was released less than a month ago and since then they’ve been touring all over the country with Pope
Head of the Catholic Church, Interpreter of God’s word for the masses, Noise-Pop Sensation. Co-fronted by Matthew Seferian and Alejandro Skalany, and featuring drummer Atticus Lopez, Pope is an indie-rock trio hailing from Houston and currently based in New Orleans. They’re gearing up to release their newest album, True Talent Champion this November.
Saint Something is the combined creative talents of Carina Rosenbach ‘20, Anjali Desai ‘20, Ginger Hutchinson ‘20, and Luisa Bryan ‘21. The all-female identifying group is rapidly gaining momentum after a groundbreaking performance at the MASH. Don’t miss Saint Something’s sweet blend of heavenly harmonies, poetic lyrics, and tight songcraft. Performing with Pope and Young Jesus, Saint Something is the Holy Ghost in this Friday’s Earth House holy Trinity, if you will.

Terror Pigeon (+ Space Camp, Girltype Behaviors, & Perennial)
MAC 650 // Monday 7:00PM
Terror Pigeon is a band / performance project / gym class from Nashville, TN. Neil Fridd makes violently cathartic anthems for positive mental attitude and spiritual healing and forever friendship. The Terror Pigeon live experience has included lasers, fog machines, yard inflatables, Lion King projections, stuffed animal bouquets, and parachute games. The scene teambuilding exercise that CT needs right now -- jump in and let your heart explode.
SPACE CAMP is jams for the femme chaos. Scathing and pointed critiques of patriarchy, "the scene", body shaming, transphobia, et al., filtered through cacophonous and kitchen-sink heavy sounds. Space Camp brings the pain directed towards all stripes of harsh masculinities and brings all the soft people in to crush that hot garbage with them.
Girltype Behaviors are a Wesleyan band bringing slick and fun post-punk outside of the campus bubble and into a greater context. Shake your butt and support the cross-pollination!
Perennial features members of Aeroplane 1929 and Lion Cub, and sounds nothing like those nice sweet indie rock bands of New England days gone by. This is post-hardcore for the sake of the boogie and for the sake of the collective consciousness. They urge you to move - mentally, physically, or otherwise - call and response, 1-2-3's, and more, to engage you, reciprocally.
