Every once in a while, for whatever reason, a great rock show falls through the cracks. Lucky for you, we scour the internet religiously looking for great opportunities to see live music. Enter Drag City recording artists Purling Hiss. The Philadelphia trio cranks out grungy noise rock somewhere in between Bleach era Nirvana and the 60's band Les Rallizes Denudes. Sure Purling Hiss could have been on Sub Pop in the early 90's, but don't chalk them up as just another revival act.  Check out two Purling Hiss videos below to get a feel for what the band is all about, and make sure to get to the Hi-Tone by 9 p.m. tonight. They are the only band on the bill.
