Didi, Potty Mouth, Fragile Gang, Pouty, The Groans


Past Event
You might expect from their name that Potty Mouth are just another punk band. The local trio’s original songs surge forward with a punk-rock intensity, but they are also blended at times with grungy power that mixes hazy, fuzzy intensity with poppy hooks and occasional moments of soulful contemplation. “You want a smash hit/Do you know what’s in fashion?” singer-guitarist Abby Weems wails sarcastically on “Smash Hit,” whose euphoric chorus invokes “modern dazzle” in propelling a catchy anthem that comments on commercial popularity while quietly underscoring the group’s own potential. Potty Mouth’s songs range from coolly serene headbangers such as “Cherry Picking” and the fuzz-shrouded “Creeper Weed” to more introspective tracks like “The Bomb,” which shifts from a relatively restrained opening into a thunderous momentum as Weems declares, “I dropped a bomb, and the bomb was me.”
