01.31: L.A. Witch plays Alex's Bar for last U.S. show before summer

L.A. Witch have a new album coming out this summer, but to conserve their energy for its release, they're playing only two shows in the U.S. beforehand. The second of those two shows will happen at Alex's Bar on January 31st. The trio of Ellie English, Sade Sanchez, and Irita Pai toured Europe a second time last year, but compared to their busy 2018, the past several months have seen L.A. Witch taking their time to brew up a plan to become indomitable in these first years of the new decade. If you wonder what L.A. Witch's 2020 release has in store for you, take a listen to their 2018 EP Octubre, which blends psych rock, smoky blues, and punk into a stark and sultry collection of tracks. We've featured "Haunting" below. - Will Sisskind

Bloom's demo is a noise-friendly ride, plays Saint Vitus 1.22

Punk quartet BLOOM bask in noise and the experimental on their demo release, creating a release that’s granular and rough around the edges, even for the genre in which they operate. It’s what makes BLOOM DEMO 2019 such a compelling listen, a collection of tracks that operates within a hardcore discourse while simultaneously pushing the envelope — from their Merzbowesque invocation on “Intro” to the gain-heavy “Horizontal,” there’s an equal attention paid to intense punk performance and sonic manipulation alike. The end result is a visceral, experimental LP, which even if “just a demo,” showcases a band that’s never risk adverse, one that’s willing and ready to dive headfirst into black sludge and white noise alike. Give it a listen below, and catch BLOOM at Saint Vitus on January 22nd. —Connor Beckett McInerney

Unknown Sender's debut is thrasy fun, plays Union Pool 1.14

New York punk rock group Unknown Sender spring into action with their debut, self-titled record, incorporating elements surfy, psychy, and thrashy into an ambitious first full length. From the beach-friendly fills in “On Trial,” to the death march drums of “No Use,” to the doom of standout “Engine Failure,” the band keeps their energy upbeat, consistently driving, and melodic throughout the album’s ten tracks. Perfect for fans of Minor Threat and the Menzingers, it’s worth its weight in the sweat and blood expected at their upcoming January 14th Union Pool show — listen below.

Shutups, Andy Bender, Stress Dreams and Babewatch play Eli’s January 10

This Friday Throwin’ Bo’s has a showcase of Bay Area bands that are sure to keep you energized and moving. Oakland’s Babewatch is surfy garage rock with just the right amount of punk. Stress Dreams isn’t as stressful as it sounds but they do describe themselves as “rat” music. Well said, we guess. Local dream catch Shutups are playing the bill, along with the quietest of the bunch, Andy Bender. Need some folk rock with more melodies and twists than you bargained for? Listen to Andy Bender! And come on down to Eli's Mile High Club. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
