[GRUNGE] They’re from Washington, their guitars sound dragged through wet waste and they don’t give a fuck about their Internet presence. Grunge might be an apt way to describe Naomi Punk, but it leaves a lot of the band’s corners unlit. For one, their vocals have a schoolyard chant quality, like a broken Kate Bush record. Last year’s full-length, The Feeling, was re-released on trendy pan-indie label Captured Tracks in November, after multiple do-it-yourself CD-R releases had bolstered its punk cred. This is not a group that fits easily into a box—or a five-minute video. The challenge of capturing it might be why it was selected to play this show, a three-year anniversary party for music documentary crew Into The Woods, who just recently filmed Naomi Punk in its natural element, a Portland house show. It will be difficult. “Most writers don’t know how to describe us,” guitarist Neil Gregerson says in an Into the Woods interview. “They just talk about our haircuts.”
