Get Trashed Tonight!

posted by on April 14 at 11:15 AM

Dear Seattle,

This is the Trashies…

This is what happens when the Trashies get in front of a video camera…

This is what Paul Constant had to say about the band…

But hearing the Trashies on record is nothing compared to the revelatory thrill of seeing them live. The band got their start playing filthy basement shows—on one momentous occasion, Cody bled on half the audience—and those animalistic tendencies haven’t faded with time.

It’s easy to be a sucker for the shitty antiglamour of the band’s shtick, but they can’t disguise the real talent that it takes to keep a song running on the ragged edge of garbage. It’s post-post-post-whatever-punk—the Trashies are characters putting on a show, but when they’re onstage they become what they’re pretending to be: gonzo punk-rock Shivas. When they’re hate-fucking music, they really do want to destroy the world, one club at a time.

And, finally, here’s what happens when the Trashies go on tour for over a month…

Get Trashed: The Trashies Tour Diary, Week One

Animal Guts for the Dog to Eat: The Trashies Tour Diary, Week Two

On the Road in a Mystery Zone: The Trashies Tour Diary, Week Three

Beer, Corndogs, Emergen-C: The Trashies Tour Diary, the Final Installment

Armed with all that information, you’ve no doubt already concluded that you’re going to be at the Comet tonight to witness their musical chaos in person while the band celebrates their homecoming and wrecks as much shit as possible. I suggest you bring band-aids, earplugs, and a poncho.

With love,
Megan
