If Boston needs a rock and roll ass kicking, WHITE DYNOMITE are primed to be the boot, the foot, and the toes. October 6 at Great Scott is set up for a balls-out rock and roll frontman battle of fairly epic proportions, as Proper Gent Around Town Keith Pierce of MELLOW BRAVO goes head-to-head, drink-to-drink, and fist-to-fist with Allston's unofficial ringleader, White Dynomite's David Unger. The fairly new garage-punk quartet dropped this no-frills music video last week to get us all jacked up for their record release party in a few weeks; a Mad Oak Records showcase that also features 2012 Rumble winners BOW THAYER & PERFECT TRAINWRECK and Portland, Maine's MURIELAGO. The following Sunday will likely be canceled.
The "White Dynomite" track comes off the band's debut record of the same name, and the video above was directed by Tim Catz and Justin Brooks, shot by Brooks, Travis Vautour, and Nic Robertson, with lighting by Zack Lazar, scenics by Ian Adams, and editing by Brooks. Good work all around. That part of Allston looks as lovely as ever.
Look for White Dynomite's bruising record to be listed as one of 10 Boston albums you need to hear, coming up in the Boston Phoenix's September 20 Fall Preview.
