Total Trash, Morons 

When: Sun., March 17, 5 p.m. 2013
When a band calls itself Total Trash—one of the Ts is an upside-down cross, naturally—and decks out a cassette cover with a pumpkin-headed skateboarder wearing a My War T-shirt and holding a severed head, you pretty much know what you’re in for. And fortunately these three dudes and a lady from Minneapolis don’t bother with finesse or subtle surprises—they’re all about punk-squat grime and cigarette butts in Busch cans and sloppy Germs-style snarl (hence the cover of “Communist Eyes”). On their next cassette, You Don’t Try (self-released this week), vocalist Jessica Katz hollers “Daddy I’m a rich girl / Daddy I’m a whore” with fuck-you desperation, while the guitars erect a dissonant, blown-out wall of fuzz that seems to be made out of something that resembles notes. And if you care about notes, then trust me, you suck. I need Total Trash to turn into the second coming of 90s punk-grunge offenders Butt Trumpet like the desert needs rain. The band plays at a DIY space later tonight; ask Google if you must know. —Kevin Warwick The Morons open.
