Last Minute Plans: A Veritable Pop-Punk Explosion At Township

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 14, 2013 7:00PM


Two local bands and one from New York will take the stage at Township tonight and play like the '00s never happened. The Mizzerables and All Eyes West, both from Chicago, will bookend the evening with Broadcaster supplying the power chords from Long Island in the middle. We recently shared our thoughts on the latest album from The Mizzerables, and we're still enjoying its hooks and the vigorous workout listening to it provides for our inner 16-year-old.

On their self-titled EP—released way back in 2011—All Eyes West play no nonsense tunes built on discordant leads over shouted vocals and fluid rythm lines that help build their songs' melodic core.

Broadcaster are touring behind their newest, A Million Hours, and their bouncing, catchy and chunky songs will translate well onstage. They may be from New York, but their sound is pure early-'90s Chapel Hill.

Tonight, October 14, at Township, 2200 N California, 8 p.m., $7, 18+
