(Tractor) The awkwardly named Moistboyz were founded by “Dickey and Mickey Moist,” aka Guy Heller and Mickey Melchiondo—better known as Dean Ween of renowned weirdo-rock outfit Ween. Taking a great deal of the Pennsylvania band’s underlying absurdity and left-field humor but adding a more aggressive punk edge to it, the results are crude and hilarious burners with titles like “Shitheel,” “Chickendick,” and “I Don’t Give a Fuck Where the Eagles Fly.” Similarly experimental-punk LA duo Qui (who, like Moistboyz, have also released an album on Mike Patton’s Ipecac Records label) are a bit lighter on the bodily-function humor, but are still an incredibly ideal opener for this bill. Expect both bands to perform plenty of fan favorites along with selections from their 2013 albums Moistboyz V and Life Water Living.
