A quick outtake/rewind from last week's Winter Preview, which highlighted ten upcoming gigs and release parties around Boston, starting off with Japanese Monster's re-boot this weekend at Church in the Fens...
JAPANESE MONSTER | Church | January 8 | July's glossy Bleeps Sweeps Creeps EP gets the re-boot treatment, re-released with two new tracks via a USB drive with enough fancy packaging to scare off Mothra. A project with roots in J/Q, the Living Sea, and the Divorced, Japanese Monster's retro-now synth attack is more than a new(er) wave — it's an electronic tsunami across the dance floor. Be sure to roll up early for the Fat Creeps, a young trio that's had hypnotic debut track "Nancy Drew" embedded in the Boston Accents playlist. We'll have more on those ladies in next week's Boston Phoenix.
With FAT CREEPS + THE THIEVES + GUILTY PARTY | 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston | 21+ | $8 | 617.236.7600 or churchofboston.com
