with The Beverleys & The Sweet Release
Sunday January 10th
"This is punk in the classic sense –
music from the balls, not the brain,
that recalls the gleeful nihilism of
the Dead Boys and Sex Pistols."
— John Gentile, Rolling Stone
The Sweet Release
“[The Sweet Release] has straight up astounded people in the Providence music scene for the last year and a half or so. [The band] is a mix of hardcore punk, garage rock and a little bit of blues accented by a charisma and flair that mirrors the styles of vintage Iggy Pop and Mick Jagger. This all equates to a high energy experience.” -Motif Magazine
In 2010 three friends made the decision to start making music together on a whim… three years, countless rehearsals and live shows later, we have The Beverleys, a TKO of a trio dead set on using their impulses to make heads bang while they shake off their troubles. Their dual guitar (Joanna Lund, Susan Burke) and drum (Audrey Hammer) attack recalls the time when punk first broke — their sound is imbued with a grungy heaviness characteristic of the Toronto scene but with the sharper and more defined lines of a band too quick to get lost in the murk. To their credit, it hasn’t taken long for others to catch on: in 2012 The Beverleys recorded early versions of their taut tunes with Fucked Up’s Ben Cook which they then released via their Bandcamp. They’ve also become an in-demand act locally, playing a flood of shows throughout 2013 with the likes of Buzz’s own HSY as well as The Dirty Nil, Crosss and Ice Age.
