Weekend Warrior, February 7 - 9

Weekend Warrior, February 7 - 9

Union Transfer hosts a huge all locals only lineup this Saturday as Pissed Jeans and Purling Hiss join forces for a three-day run with a stop at Union Transfer alongside Trophy Wife, who will joining in for an evening of chaos. Ever since signing to Sub Pop and putting out Hope for Men, Pissed Jeans have found themselves being regarded as one of the best hardcore noise-rock bands of the current generation. And their work with Grammy-nominated Alex Newport on King of Jeans and last year’s Honeys has elevated their sound to a whole new level. What started out as a solo side project by then Birds of Maya guitarist Mike Polizze has evolved into another heavy rockin’ power trio in Purling Hiss. And ever since signing to Drag City and releasing their first record as a trio, Water on Mars, Polizze and friends have gotten bigger than ever. Though Trophy Wife aren’t yet as well-known as their other bill mates, all that could change with the third album that the ladies are shooting to release in late spring, so tonight could be an opportune moment to sample a couple new tunes among the old. It’s your chance to rage this weekend before the snow forces you to hibernate in your home once again. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8pm, $15, All Ages - Bill McThrill
