My editor requested 125 words on why Diarrhea Planet is worthy of your time, but I only need four: guitar shredding punk explosion. Is that not enough? At recent SXSW showcases, the Nashville-based band lit up crowds with face-melting solos, stage-diving T-shirt contests and enough jokes about being another act altogether that folks began to wonder if they were serious about changing that ridiculous name. Beneath all of the band’s raucous, visceral fun, Diarrhea Planet has a penchant for offering stunningly reflective lyrics about the pains of everyday existence. If you haven’t already, give a close listen to the group's latest release, I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. Lucky for us, the band is back in town to make up for a last-minute January cancellation. Rejoice!
