Diarrhea Planet, Left & Right, The Oblio’s

Nashville’s winningly-named Diarrhea Planet owes every bit as much to nuance as to sheer adrenaline. Their mildly fuzzy, warm and punky garage rock showcases a range of vocal delivery styles and moods. Diarrhea Planet is more than just a full-speed-ahead, lo-fi punk band. These dudes write good songs and seem to know themselves better on each release. On “Five Year Plan,” Philadelphia’s Left & Right channel the hair-rising energy of pop-punk into 95 seconds of pure, young adult opportunity. “Come with me boys, I’m leaving anyway,” sings Daniel Merchant, late-night-contemplating a move to Austin. On The Bolos versus The Oblio’s, the latter band crunches through four tunes of full-bodied rock ‘n’ roll, with heavy reliance on the fuzz box, a vital pedal that squares out the guitar signal into near oblivion. Free with RSVP, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N St Mary's St
