Fri., Aug. 16, I'm Dirty Too
Blue Lamp, 8:30 p.m., $7
Jess Gowrie and Zac Brown are the two masterminds blasting audiences with their hard-rock tunes in I'm Dirty Too. They both bring tons of past musical experiences to the forefront, such as Gowrie's involvement with the Drama and Brown's time spent in Dusty Brown and Doombird. During performances, Gowrie beats the life out of the drums as guitarist Brown loops and distorts notes, with the two sharing lead-vocal duties. IDT's new record, The Downhill Dive, is available now on Bandcamp. For those familiar with the sounds of Black Sabbath, Portishead, Placebo and the Flaming Lips, all of these influences are present during an I'm Dirty Too set. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, http://imdirtytoo.bandcamp.com.
