Getting Side Eyes at Zebulon: Los Angeles contemporary punks the Side Eyes are celebrating the release of their sophomore album What’s Your Problem? with this Zebulon show. “Anyone suspecting that the Southern California band may have mellowed out in the five years between albums will have those suspicions shattered within the first twenty seconds of the opening track ‘Get Me Out’,” they say. “If anything, the band is now harder, faster and angrier than they were the first time around.” That’s enticing!

“Vocalist Astrid McDonald is in fiery fine form calling out everything from phonies to shit talkers to people that simply aren’t nice,” reads a press release. “Brothers Kevin and Chris Devine on guitar and bass and drummer Sam Mankinen thunder through the twelve tracks here at a breakneck speed that is positively pummeling. While The Side Eyes sound like a throwback to early Southern California hardcore punk rock like Circle Jerks and theAdolescents, the band also cites more recent bands like Ceremony, Glue and Babes In Toyland as influences. Produced by Steve McDonald (Redd Kross/Melvins) and clocking in at under 20 minutes (while spinning at 45 RPM) What’s Your Problem is a modern punk rock gem that blows past the sonic barriers of their past inspirations. This is great stuff!”

Getting Side Eyes at Zebulon: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 7 at Zebulon.
