Celebrating 15 years of having one of the least Google-friendly names in music (the search engine says, “try different keywords”; !!! says, “try ‘chk chk chk'”), the danceable post-punk octet intends to write a new LP after wrapping up this tour. Thing is, !!! are best live, thanks to funky Liquid Liquid-style bass and percussion, frontman Nic Offer’s alpha-male “you must dance” routine and the fact that cramming eight people onto a stage like the Bell House’s is totally entertaining by itself. With Light Asylum and Computer Magic.
