Union Pool's stellar Summer Thunder series continues with Brooklyn's own grizzled chuggers Obits invading the backyard. Led by raspy-throated wailer Rick Froberg, a dude who has amassed enough to die for punk cred and indie punk godheadness to make your head explode. In the 90's, Froberg tore both math-rock and post-hardcore a new a-hole on the left coast with Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. Since 2008, he's led Obits through a killer LP trifecta of 60's-damaged blooze and mangled surf-punk junk-fi anthemry. So soak in the sun, drink a beer and "taste the diff" while grooving to cuts from Obits' most recent rad riffer, Bed & Bugs.
