Strapping Fieldhands

Spider Bags, Strapping Fieldhands, Los Naturales 

When: Mon., Sept. 27, 9:30 p.m. 2010

The Strapping Fieldhands are unpolished, their clattering, ramshackle rumble bearing the imprint of late-'80s alt-rock with its shambolic unstudied air. It recalls Eric Gaffney's contributions to Sebadoh or a less rhythmically straightforward Saccharine Trust. They've generated comparisons to Guided By Voices due to their off-kilter, lo-fi melodicism and tossed-off feel, and their music is sprinkled with odd instrumentation and quirky noises like a less claustrophobic Pere Ubu or more (rock) focused Tall Dwarfs. Though primarily a '90s act, they reunited a couple of years ago. Their noisy, disheveled, freewheeling spirit epitomizes indie rock's initial impulse. Los Naturales opens and Spider Bags headlines.—Chris Parker
