Gnarcissists play free Baby’s All Right show 10.27

Gnarcissists are a rare band—raw and practically splitting apart with convulsive energy. Not that the sound is something unfamiliar, there’s a bit of The Stooges relentless garage rock energy, a twinge of Sex Pistols snarl, and enough drug references to bring the Velvet Underground to mind. But Gnarcissists’ newest EP, released earlier this month, captures that feeling of something alive happening in front of you in ways that many retro rock and rollers are unable to. The band plays next at Baby’s All Right on October 27 for a free show put on by Dr. Martens. – Cameron Carr
