Editorial Review

Need a fix of primal garage rock? The Black Cat has you covered on Saturday. Kerry Davis has been bashing out brief blasts of noise since the mid-'90s with her cult-favorite band Red Aunts. Her latest group, Two Tears, keeps the sharp edges and the sneering attitude but manages a more refined sound: There's less feedback, more reverb. New single "I'm So Outta It," which chugs and stomps along for just under two minutes, adds a minor gem to her already long list of hits. Openers Eyes of the Killer Robot play only a handful of shows each year, so it's worth getting to the club early to hear their similarly stripped-down tunes.
