Strange Boys

Editorial Review

Strange Boys play a ragged and weary brand of garage rock. No thrashing, no stomping, no over-the-top histrionics. If the garage rock prom needed a band to pen the slow dance song, Strange Boys would probably be the pick. The band perpetually sounds like it was woken up a few minutes early from a nap that was a few hours overdue. Opening acts at Comet Ping Pong include leftfield garage-pop band White Fence and the debut of Heavy Breathing, a local group featuring former members of longtime local staples the Apes.
