Colleen Green @ The Bishop 8/30
The 90s happened something like a ten years ago but there’s still kids who like to wear flannel, reference The Simpsons and pride themselves on their lack of ambition. You can thank those kids for giving Mac DeMarco his career and making Burger Records “a thing.” You can also thank them for Colleen Green, the SoCal punk who I’ve just learned isn’t the long lost sister of Stephen Malkmus (thanks TinyMixTapes).
She’s playing The Bishop this Sunday. Doors at 8 p.m., $8 for a ticket but expect the typical extra $1.50 charge for an X on your hand if you’re under 21. Remember kids, while it’s true that Fugazi never charged more than $5 a show, that was the 80s, and when you adjust for inflation and the cost of Hand Xs, $8-$10 is a totally fair price. Come early for Jaill (this is probably what the kids mean when they mention “indie”) and Punani Huntah (electro-dub of the haziest order).
Ed. note: The Bishop no longer charges a $1.50 surcharge for underage attendees.
