Superlocalgroup Big Whup play Echo Curio on Friday, size of whups TBD

Good luck trying to pin Big Whup‘s sound down to a scene; we ended up sounding like Gene Shalit if he overdosed on Radio Free Silver Lake. ("It’s as if Win Butler teamed up with Prince’s backup vocalists, and the Talking Heads came over to their lockout and said, ‘Let’s have some ear sex or something.’ ") The group, made up of borrowed members from local bands like Pizza! and Morgan and Her Organs, are as grassroots and who-gives-a-fuck as you can get, so cheek–I mean, check them out at their Echo Curio set this Friday.  Details next to the naked bod below.
