With the new LP Brain Hole (Logan Hardware), local rock fiends Rabble Rabble deliver nine musical bitch slaps of napalm cologne to the summertime turkey necks of the Logan Square doucheoisie. The album—for which this is a release party—is a toxically intense cauldron of stoner shred, 90s heavy sauce, and twin guitar leads, with monster drummer Kaylee Preston supplying the heat. It powers through intricate transitions, never letting up for a second, and once you’ve heard snaky-psych epic “Decoy” and crush-pound-kill instrumental “CB1,” you’ll know Rabble Rabble aren’t just another safer-than-milk happy-fun band singing about, say, the conspicuous consumption of fast food in a party setting. Plus their video for “Broke” is a Fight Club homage that demonstrates the transformative powers of weed, acid, Malort, and porn when standing up to one’s enemies. —Brian Costello
