Preview by Anastassia Olegovna
The heart of fall is coming up and I honestly think this is the best time to go to shows in North Carolina. Everyone thinks that summer is the time when bands tour but I’ve found that all of my favorite bands tour in the fall, which is either a weird coincidence or there’s some secret organization behind this.

If you are looking for a quiet way to pass the time look to another place, because on October 10th FUZZ, CCR Headcleaner and Big No will not spare your eardrums. 
Big No is a fairly unknown band hailing from San Francisco by way of Richmond, creating dark, manic pop songs that are understated and out-of-your-mind lo fi. Nathan Grice, the man behind the band, sings heartfelt songs that are borderline garage, laced with sugary-pop synths that create a unique sound in the midst of the Bay Area garage scene.

The San Francisco trend continues with CCR Headcleaner, the second opener for FUZZ. Don’t be fooled though, CCR Headcleaner is not just another California band but one that has its roots set in Georgia, Maine, and Washington, bridging the garage rock gap between the East and West coast in the heart of the Bay Area. They proudly boast a “not giving a damn” attitude backed by their noisy, destructive, psych and punk sound with a premeditated readiness to get real weird.

Finally, FUZZ headlines the show with a band name that should already give you an idea of what you’re in store for. FUZZ is the brainchild of the San Francisco garage rock genius, Ty Segall, and Charles Mootheart, who plays in Ty’s live band. (with Roland Cosio on bass) Segall, taking a break from the spotlight of his two other ongoing projects, Ty Segall and Ty Segall band, situates himself on the drums. Don’t expect him to sit there and haphazardly beat the drums, instead expect insanity and psyched-out drum solos. In fact don’t go expecting anything that might color Ty’s previous work because FUZZ sounds more like Black Sabbath and a heavier version of Ty Segall Band’s Slaughterhouse. Mootheart and Segall trade off vocals over fuzzed-out psychedelic rock and roll that distorts reality and may cause spinal injuries because you will not be able to stop yourself from lurching into the band’s madness headfirst.

Doors open at 8:30 pm and the show starts at 9:00. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
