The Supersuckers w/Stallion Tonight at Exit/In

Posted By on Wed, Jul 23, 2014 at 7:30 AM

I’m of two minds about this show. On one hand, you’ve got the Supersuckers, the clown princes of belligerent rock ’n’ roll, who are always amazing live. Get the Hell, the ’Suckers 2013 return to form, was one of my favorites of the year — a scum-drenched demolition derby that harkens back to their heyday as Sub Pop’s token Satan-worshipping garage rockers. So, The Supersuckers’ return to town is a reason to celebrate — preferably with tons of booze and maybe some “party favors” for good measure. But on the other hand, this is the last Stallion show, which is a reason to be very, very sad. Stallion’s scummy, sleazy garage punk has been a welcome relief from the city’s constant move to become a more respectable, presentable yuppie mecca, and when we lose them we’ll be one step closer to the boring, bland commodity the condo developers wish we were. Needless to say, I’m getting sloppy drunk either way.

Tonight's show at Exit/In starts at 9 p.m. and costs $15 at the door.
