Anasazi, with the power of tribal-infused post-punk! Dekoder, with the gift of devil-may-blow-us surf-punk! Gash with the power of…“psychology and extreme violence!” That’s a power, apparently. Bombings, with the ability to distort their tracks to inhuman levels of fuzz. And Boston’s own Groke, blessed by the queercore nu-gods with crusty, unholy metal and reactionary misanthropy. Together, they are…The Darkwave Punx! And when they hear the rallying call, they assemble at Starlab to…mostly just play music. Darkwave Punx…assemble! Oh, wait.
The rallying call is “fuck off.” Right. Fuck off, punks.
