Necro Hippies at Books 2 Prisoners Benefit


How fitting that Books 2 Prisoners, a New Orleans-based nonprofit that sends reading materials to prison inmates around the country, would be the beneficiary of this showcase for criminally under-the-radar area punk rockers. Nowe Miasto's de facto house band, Necro Hippies (pictured) is a pile-driver in the best possible sense. Its 2009 release Sore Throat (Raw Sugar) delivers 150-second speedballs of sweaty thrash and scuffed-up garage, with only ear-piercing trails of amplifier feedback left in their squealing, devastating wake. Formerly on hiatus, reuniting outfits Fisher Cat and the Let Down open. Tickets $5. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
