The Dirty Lungs @ The Bishop 9/23

If one day of school makes you already wishing for the weekend you can get your weekend started early on this upcoming Tuesday Sept. 23.

Doors will open at 9 p.m. to The Bishop (123 S. Walnut St.), for The Bangs, Pink Cigarettes, and headliner The Dirty Lungs. The Bishop will be an 18+ event Tuesday, a 5 buck cover (You can find in your pocket) will get you through the door.

The Bishop is a cozy venue with capacity of about 200 or so people. The relatively small space offers a great venue to catch an up close, more personal show. It will be hard waking out after Tuesday’s show without slightly muffled hearing. The Bishop has yet to offer me a poor viewing experience this year and I don’t think The Dirty Lungs will either.

The Dirty Lungs aka Ra-Jaan Parmley, Carson Mitchell, Chris Scott, and Justin Ward fuse upbeat surf rock tempos with Nirvana grunge undertones, while layering psychedelic waves throughout. Labeling the rockers as punk for me isn’t a fitting genre; when a band has a unique unclassified sound it usually gets cast as punk if it’s even the slightest bit unorthodox or experimental. If psychedelic, engulfing, rich, spacey, or unique classify music enticing to your pallet, I highly suggest you check out The Dirty Lungs.
Recently announcing the release of their Communicating Vessels album, The Dirty Lungs have hit the road for promotion. The Bishop should yield a set with fresh licks and an electric environment in anticipation of the upcoming release. I’m anticipating entrancing songs filled with layers and textures materializing an absorbing atmosphere.

Even if none of what I have said sounds enticing to you, my stylistic dancing will be in full effect and I promise you that is a sight to see in itself.
