Pierced Arrows+Lullabye Arkestra


Tonight is a double Vice showdown between two of the label’s recent metal signees. Hailing from Portland and endorsed by Eddie Vedder, graying rock outfit Pierced Arrows prove that geezers need excitement in their anthemic three-chord garage. The lovelorn “Let It Rain” from their latest LP, Descending Shadows, proves that their ’70s heyday still goes strong. Following suit, Toronto husband-wife duo Lullabye Arkestra will bring the house down with their overblown theatrics—count crowdsurfing, audience participation and copious devil horns-cum-cunnilingius mime among them—only appropriate for a band whose best song is single “We Fuck the Night.”
