Miami Dolphins, T'Bone Member Picks Free Soundboard Recommended

When: Mon., Dec. 12, 9 p.m. 2011

This year the name "Miami Dolphins" has gotten a workout: of course there's Miami's NFL team, who are heading for the end of a rough season in last place in the AFC East, but there's also a spazzy, chaotic noise-punk four-piece from Minneapolis with the same name. Needless to say, listening to the band is more fun than watching the team. Since starting up in March, the group has self-released a couple cassettes of crazed, bristling cacophony, full of tunes that barely break the two-minute barrier. The Dolphins throw together a jarring tangle of sounds—surf-rock guitar, thundering bass, sensual cabaret-style vocals, blitzing hardcore drums, plenty of high-pitched wailing and yelping—and somehow hit the sweet spot between tuneful pop and arty noise. Their music's a mess, but they've definitely got a winning record. —Leor Galil T'Bone opens. $7 suggested donation
