[PUNK BAND] It took me a long time to understand this, but the phrase “side project” usually sounds like a slur to the folks in the band. It is, without a doubt, one of the cruelest shards of terminology in rock and roll. The implication is that the “project” (you know, like dissecting frogs) you are about to see requires less tending to—and is therefore somehow less artful—than its better-known musical cousin. That’s kind of like suggesting that the best sex is always planned years in advance. Hurry Up, which features two members of Portland’s most popular and enthusiastic punk band and a longtime pillar of its indie-rock scene—which, for the sake of this particular outfit, will go unnamed—doesn’t have an album or a press kit or a rider. I’m not even sure if the trio’s songs have titles. Hurry Up does have passion, though. It’s inspiring to see people who should probably be burnt out on rock music finding bliss in such blistering, minimal rock’n’roll.
