"IS THIS A JOKE?"

ANNOUNCEMENT

circuitcity-nb:

We, as a venue, a safe space, and a home, will NOT tolerate when touring bands treat our town and our home, as their playground.

Tour should be a time when you, as a band, are reaching out and meeting people, promoting yr band, selling yr merch, and building a community around you. Leaving a bad…

Punk houses are important. Treat the people who are kind enough to invite you into their home with respect!

Respect the space folks. NB basement shows are the most important.

Worriers is a great emotional punk band from Brooklyn, New York. 

Musically, it’s incredibly catchy, eloquent, and sensible. Some songs explode into the nicest pop punk songs that you might expect, but then the next one is a slower folk song with atmospheric melodies fading off in the back that tear your heart out. The range this band has for song writing is wonderful. They touch the simple song structure senses when they need to, and then blow your mind as soon as you think you know what the next sound is going to be. Even when it’s simple, it’s still done with incredible second guitar parts tearing through the song that leave you so satisfied. Minimalism is better in my opinion!

The vocalist brings me such joy and is my favorite part of listening to worriers. Lyrically, it’s intelligently written poetry that dives into very sincere and delicate aspects of life. Plenty to take in and cry along to. 

Their voice has such a deep tone and warmth to it. You don’t necessarily find that too often with some straight forward catchy punk songs so It’s really easy to eat their discography up. 

this is Never Were off their S/T album. An honest and reflective song that showcases the singer’s ability, and what the band is all about. 

Check out the rest of their discography at their bandcamp.  

Support them by buying some of their stuff at Don Giovanni Records.

Check out some other bands they put out. Lot’s of good stuff.

Used to spend my days as a kid reading books that put wild thoughts in my head. Parents wouldn’t let me work so I could get good grades, make a life for myself, and move away. We could give our bodies for social protest and not give a damn about the future consequences. Speak for yourself on your own two feet. When you’ve got kids and rent, then come and see me.

I’m just gonna put this down here….

Playing in bands for 10+ years, this is the first time I’m screening merch for us. This is both great and incredibly embarrassing. Patches for the shows this week with adult dude and kestrels! #worriers

This Wednesday there is a (now annual?) Poly Styrene Birthday Party / X-Ray Spex Tribute Show in Brooklyn at The Acheron. There will be lots of different folks singing her songs, including me. You can see the full lineup at the facebook URL below. 
I’ll be even more awkward without my guitar. But it’ll be a lot of fun and weird and you should come watch everyone get really fierce!
