PAWNS bring their throwback post-punk sound to the Knitting Factory on 8.16





PAWNS bring their throwback post-punk sound to the Knitting Factory on 8.16

The chaotic and angry nature of hardcore punk can become exhausting, causing many musicians to seek other, tamer forms of self-expression. PAWNS was formed in Brooklyn after its members felt the need for a break from full-on anger and decided to settle for just gloomy animosity - an attitude reminiscent of some early post punk bands of the late '70s/early '80s. On their latest seven-inch Eternal Return the band harnessed the gothic influences that were prominently featured on their first release for a more urgent sound inspired by anarcho-punk, as in “Masquerade” (streaming below) where singer Gage Allison uses a throaty shout instead of his usual deadpan vocal tone. If life is a little too good for you these days, you don't want to miss PAWNS live at the Knitting Factory on August 16th. - John Honan
