Master Shredders: Slushy, Vamos, Nothingheads, Todayshits at SubT 2/28

Plenty of bands these days like to slather their pop tunes with a heap of fuzzed out guitar shredding, but few bands in Chicago do it as well as VAMOS. These acid-soaked rockers sound like a strobe light and a lava lamp, and smell like one too.

Despite what you may have heard, The Nothingheads are not Amish. In fact, they play electrified guitars at high volume. You can barely make out their sadistic, satanic lyrics about the din. I’m sure some pervert in the crowd will have them printed out for easy access.

Opening up the evening, Todayshits started out as the recording project of James Swanberg, who, as the name suggests, would record a #1 hit song every day. To date, his oeuvre includes an epic EP dedicated to humankind’s greatest achievement, pizza. Now James has teamed up with a who’s huh? of local rockers to bring Todayshits to the concert-going public.
