Ants, Porridge Fist
Friday, May 26

If you ask us, Ants and Porridge Fist are two of San Antonio’s best young bands, each with its own distinct way of plumbing the depths of heavy, experimental rock music. Ants, led by Sam Tussing, makes shit-fi, shoegaze, sludge rock with absurdist extrapolations. Porridge Fist, led by Jacob Gonzalez (who also plays with Ants), has a similar sonic palette, rife with righteous riffage and churning underbelly muck, but journeys more into the weirdo-pop spectrum. Quite appropriately, the band has been known to refer to its sound as dream-thrash, which may seem a practical oxymoron—until you hear Porridge Fist yourself. The two bands are joined on this bill by Dane Rousay’s other-other jaunt (he’s also a talented composer/solo percussionist and member of The Freebiez) Jejune Stars, as well as Psalms and Food Group. $5.00, 8:00pm, Imagine Books and Records, 8373 Culebra Rd, (210) 236-7668, — JC
