Nude Beach, Shellshag, Harsh Words, Basement Benders, Stormies


I’m not going to not mention Tom Petty and Big Star, because, c’mon, Nude Beach’s incredible new double album, 77, oozes those and other easy-to-identify influences from every dirt-clogged pore. But don’t let all the hero worship distract you from the fact that the Brooklyn-based trio has its own thing going in the particular way it blends classic rock sensibility with power-pop goodness and scrappy punk action. Plenty of bands do this or something similar in 2014; very few do it well. Nude Beach is near the top of the list. A must-see potpourri of local and touring punks rounds out Sunday’s stacked bill.
