Murmurs, Shehehe, Cancers

All the bands playing Hi-Lo Tuesday share a clear love of ’80s punk and ’90s grunge, but each act incorporates those influences in different ways. Seattle rockers Murmurs augment their restless, reckless, palm-muted pop-punk instrumentation with guttural but melodic vocals, a dirtier version of early grunge godfathers like Screaming Trees. Athens outfit Shehehe continues to hone its arena-inspired, common-denominator punk assault, and locals Cancers harness the vicious slack-rock energy of the post-grunge Pacific Northwest and crank that shit up to infinity. Which is all to say: Wear earplugs, please.
