Birthday Boy

New Birthday Boy EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Proudly burying listeners in the ragged, rushing sonics of 90's alt rock, Birthday Boy creates crushing, melodic avalanches on its new EP Mercy Rule. Never one to shy away from a memorable hook, a familiarity forms. The quartet is set to hold its record release celebration on Saturday, March 31 at Creep Records. Birthday Boy will also be supported by Sun Opus as well as Nashville's The By Gods and Australian rockers Pat Chow.


Dash Through the Twilight Streets w/Birthday Boy at KFN Aug. 14

The three-piece of Birthday Boy immediately rushes forward as the emotive pop-punk sound generated is unified, dashing through the twilight streets. The murky undertow of bass prowls, while percussion triggers anxious anticipation and the guitar picks points to jump ahead; meanwhile, first person observations paint the ever-moving exterior. Tonight, the sonic canvas can be found at Kung Fu Necktie, where they’ll be joined by the sparse yet revealing slowcore of Glenn Matthews and episodic folk of Spot Collins with its endearing descriptive lyricism. The rousing pop-punk energy of New York’s Dizzy Bats applies the finishing touches. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ (Photo by Andrew Tomasino) - Michael Colavita
