Most of the folks who turn up at The End tonight will be there for the cacophonous sounds of lo-fi “shitgaze” darlings Times New Viking — the coed three-piece that has fetched comparisons to fellow Ohioan indie rockers Guided by Voices. And aesthetically, the comparison makes some sense. It’s just that … well, TNV doesn’t exactly have what made Guided by Voices so special: really, really stirring and memorable songs and an impressive live show. Local openers Big Surr, however, have shown a lot of promise in recent months. Big Surr’s debut EP, Miss You Most — which they offered up for free on their blog (bigsurr[dot]blogspot[dot]com) — features urgent, punk-pop tempos, wistful, sweetie-pie lyrics and some of the most infectious, fuzzed-out licks you’re liable to hear from a local group. It doesn’t hurt that most of the lineup consists of members of the surprisingly impressive, scatologically monikered music-school-punk outfit Diarrhea Planet. And yes, the fact that Big Surr is lady-fronted, sunny, surfy, noisy pop kinda makes me want to make a Best Coast comparison, but I won’t go there. (Damn it — I guess I pretty much just did.) Fellow locals D. Watusi — also impressive — round out the bill.
