Fred and Toody Cole were the husband and wife who led the mythical Dead Moon, the long-lasting Northwest rock institution with Wipers-style guitar growl, 13th Floor Elevators mysteriousness and a commitment to DIY punk so pure that they cut their self-released records on their own vinyl lathe. Now as the Coles trek toward their 70s, they’re playing out as a not-quite-acoustic duo, with a set list that includes a few Fred and Toody new ones and plenty of Dead Moon classics. Yes, their famous “It’s OK” probably will make an appearance, but maybe they can sneak in “Johnny’s Got a Gun” or “54-40” or hopefully even “Poor Born,” which is as much a manifesto as the Coles ever had or needed. As the song goes: “I ain’t been broken/I’m still churning and burning inside/And I can’t stop smokin’/I’m pissed off, pissed off, pissed off!/It’s just the way I am!”
