Pile stomps and hollers - Tonight @ The Milestone

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 11:15 AM

One Pile touchstone, indie legend Jawbox, never quite hit as hard as this Boston powerhouse. But what do you expect? With Boston’s long history of hardcore and other basement-grown styles, it stands to reason even indie rockers would pack brass knuckles. On Magic Isn’t Real and the more recent Big Web 7-inch, Pile stomps and hollers through occasionally angular, occasionally sweet post-punk. Songs like the not-even-half-a-minute “Sweat Lodge,” rumble and spazz like Mudhoney having a seizure. Um, Pile? Your roots are showing.

$6-$9. The Milestone.
