Metal at Propaganda! Miami's Vultures Are Wolves Play the Lake Worth Venue this Friday
Well, maybe not "dance," per se -- this band's fast, thrashy onslaught is an awesome soundtrack for all-out destruction. Obtusely titled songs like "The River Took Dee Snyder" and "Cancer Tale of the Hyena" vibrate with thrash tempos, occasional death-metal-style screams, and some of the straight-up scary weirdness of classic hardcore psychos Converge.
With all that, they make the other bands on Friday's bill sound downright gentle. West Palm Beach fivesome the Ugly Harts plays a straightforward form of punk rock that combines a ragged street edge with a good dose of pop catchiness. The Pompano Beach sextet TV Kills Kids, meanwhile, is probably the most left-field act on the bill tonight. There seems to be one band member here for every major youth musical genre -- songs manage to feature hardcore yells, Transplants-style raps, pop-punk choruses, and synth lines.
Vultures Are Wolves, with the Ugly Harts and TV Kills Kids. Friday, August 21. Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth. Show starts at 8 p.m. Ages 21+ with ID. 561-547-7273; propagandalw.com
