Young Widows


Did your privates start to tingle when you heard about the Touch & Go reunion show featuring Big Black and Scratch Acid? Did your Depends blow out from the recent Jesus Lizard reappearance? Young Widows are young enough that methinks they may have never seen many of the Albini- and Yow-driven bands to which they unashamedly give sonic homage. Oh well, they rawk it like it’s late ’80s/early ’90s Chicago: creepy-crawly distorted bass, arty spoken word vocals, spider-webbed guitars, and pummeling drunken-groove drums. With My Disco, Tournament, and the Austerity Program.
