Lawyers, architects, administrators, and family men by day, *AM Stereo pull the ol’ Bruce Banner at night and transform into a drunken, rockin’ Hulk of a band. Once labeled by a friend as “disaster rock,” the band’s sound is a testament to the members’ long-running love affair with the loose, jangly, post-punk, pre-alternative college-radio rock of the 1980s and early ’90s. “Drink Club,” the lead track on their new Can’t (Gentlemen’s Recording), is a funny, touching, anthemic ode to booze and buds that’ll have you looking for the repeat button and the fridge. ThePhoenix.com and New England Product team up to bring you *AM Stereo with the Brett Rosenberg Problem and Saturn Effect this Friday, March 3, at Bill’s Bar, 5.5. Lansdowne St, Boston; visit phoenixbandguide.com for more free *AM Stereo mp3s.
