ROCK | Potty Mouth


Hailing from Northampton, Massachusetts, Potty Mouth is a whirlwind of fuzz and beer-drinking melodies. Everything that has ever made a garage band great is present here, with deep hooks and warm tones that hail those mid-80's Minnesota rust-belt bands. Like most stellar acts, the formula is simple, but the execution is brilliant. Singer Abby Weems' deceptively monotone voice carries the melody over waves of guitar solos and vintage alt-sound like a thick thread sewing the chunky riffs together. It may be fresh on the scene, but this band sounds like they've been at it for years.

Potty Mouth plays with Green Dreams and Tapehead, Tuesday, September 2, at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $10-$12.;
