Paint Fumes, Dropsonic, Tongues of Fire
January 7 | 10:00 pm$10
No one would have predicted that Charlotte’s fastest, most furious band would still be alive and kicking, yet here we are. Despite years of accrued sophistication and instrumental chops, Paint Fumes still revel in their sub-humble beginnings as musicians-in-residence at the QC’s aptly christened Sewercide Mansion. With sonic forebears including the bluesy swamp punk of Gun Club mixed with the snotty garage riffs of The Seeds, Paint Fumes maintain the brain-rewired-after-serious-head-trauma esthetic of ’60s idiot savants The Fugs. Not “ragged but right” so much as “wrong on so many levels,” this noise-rock trio continues to kick out the jams, far from running on fumes.
