Saturday, 4/12 7:30PM: Vertical Scratchers / Monster Rally (Early Show)/ Tickets $8 over 21, $12 under 21

Vertical Scratchers consists of  John Schmersal (ex-Brainiac/Enon, live Caribou, and Crooks on Tape) and Christian Beaulieu (ex-Triclops!/Anywhere) and was formed in 2012 in Los Angeles. The percussive nature in which the guitars are played and recorded is the most persistent element of the music-that and the fact that most of the guitar strums are louder than the amps and that almost every song  is under 2-minutes, which helps create a sense of urgency and raw energy without using volume and distortion while still managing to go in twice as many directions as your average song-this has been referred to as ‘Pop Deception’ and compared to The Kinks w/ the brevity of Buzzcocks.
