Microwave, Can't Swim
1627 Prospect St.
Indianapolis, IN, 46203
This event is all ages
Blending elements of hardcore, emo, and indie rock in a melodic cocktail unmatched by scene contemporaries, Atlanta four-piece Microwave balances frankness with a penchant for wit, allowing personal confessions to make a striking impact. Owning the best of the punk continuum, lead vocalist Nathan Hardy will sing, scream and yelp amidst snarling guitar work. While often tipping into the heavier side of resonant punk, the band shines brightest in soft reservation.
Their debut record Stovall is simultaneously dynamic and emotionally powerful while still maintaining a poetic edge. Its somber but optimistic mood is flawlessly encapsulated by the lyrics, "you should have known this day would come/I guess if you're gonna be stupid, then you gotta be tough."
Based out of Keansburg New Jersey, Can't Swim was founded by singer Chris Loporto (Krier) in the spring of 2015. After spending most of his life playing drums in various bands, Krier decided to step in to song writing. The songs were contagious from the start and grabbed the attention of his good friends Chez, Danny and Greg. The band announced their signing to Pure Noise Records in December of 2015 and released their debut EP, "DEATH DESERVES A NAME" on February 24, 2016.
Consisting of vocalist Patrick Kindlon (End of A Year, Self Defense Family), Chris Villeneuve (drums), Nick Cogan (guitar), Cory Galusha (guitar) and Pat Wynne (bass) by way of Albany, NY, Drug Church is the sound of "some college" and a delivery job. It's what happens when you strip any pretense from music and are left with a room full of dudes with weird bodies and tenuous futures.
Pulling liberally from Seaweed, Quicksand, and Kerosene 454, the band fully embraces its hardcore-dudes-trying-to-play-alt-rock influences.
No heavy trips about how you should live. No white-guy slam poetry about love. Just music you can pushpit and stagedive to so you can forget for a moment that you have eczema and work at Pizza Hut.
