3. A Place To Bury Strangers w/ This Will Destroy You & Dusted
Where: Doug Fir
How Much: $12
When: Sunday, June 10th – 9pm
Why: The New York-based trio, A Place To Bury Strangers, have been making psychedelic shoegazy space rock tunes since 2007. Compared to its predecessors, the latest effort, Worship, has upped the ante. It’s explosive, visceral, and a little dark. Both new and old tunes will sound fantastic at Doug Fir. Grab your ticket now and treat your ears to a night of brutally dynamic and melodic wall of sound.
