Over at Strange Matter, it's an all ages early show with doors opening at 5 PM, show starting at 6 and they'll be done by 9 (cover $8) for garage punk band PAWS, Postitive No and Herro Sugar. Here's the press blurb for PAWS:
Here's a short performance PAWS did on KEXP last November:The band formed in the ashes of a briefly (but passionately) lived “Violent Femme-esque”, Glasgow based band called “A Copenhagen Hope”. After the departure of one of it’s founding members (Nick Anderson) the remaining three friends (Phillip Taylor, Josh Swinney and Matthew Scott) formed PAWS.After their first show in 2010 opening for Dum Dum Girls in Glasgow on a sold out bill, the band began to establish a strong presence in Glasgow and the surrounding areas by playing almost weekly at times. The trio self recorded and released the majority of their early writings on a small bedroom run cassette tape label that Phillip had started called Cath Records. As well as those releases, the band released their debut 7” vinyl in 2011 on Edinburgh Based indie label Gerry Loves Records. In the beggining of 2012 PAWS signed with Brighton/Brooklyn based FatCat Records. Their first release for the label was their “Misled Youth EP” in May of that year. In October their debut full length album “Cokefloat!” was released. The LP was recorded by ex Test Icicle, Rory Attwell on the boat/studio “Lightship95” docked in London’s Trinity Buoy Wharf.A relentless touring schedule throughout their first three years has seen PAWS tour the UK, Europe, USA and gather a strong and loyal fan base wherever they go. The band have toured with Japandroids, Bleached, We Are Scientists, The Cribs and have also previously been invited to open shows for The Breeders, Fucked Up, Mates Of State, No Age, Wavves, Ty Segall and many others. Spin Magazine placed the band in at number four on their “Top 50 Best Acts at SXSW Festival 2013”In spring 2013 Matthew departed from the band to pursue other interests and Ryan Drever (No Island/Garden Of Elks) was added to complete the PAWS puzzle.2014 will see the release of their sophomore album for FatCat Records which will be recorded in New York.
A band that PAWS probably like, classic 90's grunge band, Veruca Salt, will be on Conan tonight on TBS at 11 PM. The original members of VS are back together and they release a couple new tunes on a Record Store Day EP last month. They start a tour in June that brings them to Black Cat in DC on 7/21. This was their biggest hit, from 1994, this is "Seether":
