Violet Underground and Not New Normals
The Labor Temple in Astoria hosts a night of two great bands on Saturday, September 21st at 9:30pm. Violet Underground is an instrumental rock band from historic Astoria Oregon, formed in 2013 by Tyler Neale, Jay Jensen, and Tory Chappell. The band plays slow and hard metal rock tunes that bring a bang! From Portland, OR., the New Not Normals say they, “holler into prog-rock caverns at the edge of garageland, sounding the shadows for hidden heartbeats.” They are influenced by Dead Moon, Nick Cave, Minutemen and DEVO. Their members include Joshua Boyd playing guitar, vocals and theremin, Cyndy Chan on bass and vocals and Dan Kopton on drums and vocals. The venue is 21+ only and there is a $5 cover charge.
