The Japanese resurface after nearly two years of conducting subterranean experiments. The last time you saw them, they opened for Lightning Bolt during Insanity Weekend ’11. Now they’re back together for the first time. Again. Watch their super-NSFW vid here, and come ready to party/die.

Grand Cousin changes names like that girl from your high school on Facebook. Whatever you call them, they play rock and/or roll and want you to come see them. Robby “Ronald” Caplan ’14 (bass), Evan “Que Lastima” Low ’14 (drums), and Henry “Seed” Hall ’14 (vox/tar) promise it will be “the fun.”

Johnny Love and the Heartmen have (has?) never played at WestCo Café, and you won’t want to miss them (him?). “Equal parts dulcet and abrasive, his gloomy baritone will inspire everyone, be they big or fat or nothing at all. He truly is one of the last great geniuses.” #startedfromthebottom

WILD FLAG / DUCKTAILS TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Thursday night: former Sleater-Kinney/Helium/Minders members + current Real Estate member converge for riot grrrl/garage rock/lo-fi extravaganza. Tickets $5, available online now.

This just in from the Wesleyan Concert Gods: Wild Flag, the critically acclaimed new supergroup allying ex-members of seminal riot grrrl acts Sleater-Kinney and Helium with Rebecca Cole of The Minders, is set to perform at Eclectic this Thursday in what will almost certainly be the loudest show this side of Lightning Bolt.

Ducktails, the reverb-drenched project of Real Estate’s Matthew Mondanile, is set to open, along with Wesleyan’s own Grand Father.

Tickets are available online now. Pickup will be in Usdan later this week for $5. More deets/vids/links below.
