Futurebirds, Diarrhea Planet

PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Tuesday July 09 | $10.

830 E Burnside St.
 
[PARTY PROG-METAL] Futurebirds are a psych-Americana act from Athens, Ga. That’s all you need to know about them, because that’s not why you’re reading this. You saw the words “Diarrhea Planet” and had some questions. Here’s what you need to know: The band is from Nashville, Tenn. It’s got the endorsement of Jack White’s label, Third Man. The members probably smoke copious amounts of marijuana with JEFF the Brotherhood. And sweet Jesus do they rawk. DP is known for raucous house shows that bring the arena play-land inhabited by Gary Glitter and Andrew W.K. down to the basement, so expect a party if the die-hards show up. Also expect about a million and a half guitar solos, lots of hair and a pulverizing crowd pleaser called “Ghost With a Boner.” It’s loud, fast, corny—and worth every penny.
