Spray Paint Live at the Hi-Tone 

Austin, Texas, noise rockers will celebrate the release of their new album Feel the Clamps this Monday night in the Hi-Tone's small room. Goner Records is releasing the album, and the vinyl was pressed at Memphis Record Pressing, making Spray Paint one of the newest out-of-town bands to take advantage of the pressing plant. After releasing records on notable underground labels like S-S, Upset the Rhythm, Homeless Records, and Monofonus Press, the Austin three-piece took their talents to Goner Records, a label that has already had a killer year with their release of the Angry Angles compilation. The show will serve as a release show for Feel the Clamps and for a single featuring songs that didn't make the album. If post punk or noise rock is your thing, Spray Paint are certainly worth the price of admission.

Rounding out the bill is Aquarian Blood, another Goner Records band who have been working on their new album for most of the year. The band features members of many notable local groups, but almost all the tracks the band plays were cooked up by singer/guitarist JB Horrell in his home studio/practice space. Goner Records has been staying true to releasing some of the best garage/punk the city has to offer, and many will be happy to hear a new LP from Memphis powerhouse NOTS is also coming sometime this year. As for the Hi-Tone, the venue has a stacked calendar throughout the summer, including shows from bands like Every Time I Die, the Black Lips, Chain and the Gang, and Goner alumni Guitar Wolf. Get to the Hi-Tone by 9 p.m. on Monday and start your week off with some noisy punk from two bands in their prime. What could possibly go wrong?
