Antiseen plays Tremont Music Hall with the Belmont Playboys (2/25/12)

ANTISEEN/THE BELMONT PLAYBOYS A hard rocking double bill of N.C. vets. Promising bloodshed, volume and carnage, redneck sludge-rockers Antiseen had their highest profile backing self-destructive punker/sideshow freak GG Allin. Twenty-one years on, they still hoe an idiosyncratic and insular row that’s equal parts Motorhead and Black Oak Arkansas. Antiseen serves up goofy white trash shtick songs about road kill and pro wrestling while playing raw, uncompromising, anti-hipster grunge rock. In the process, they’ve managed to walk that fine line between parody and integrity. The Belmont Playboys also flirted with the big time in the early ’90s with their brand of punked-up rockabilly. Plenty of Sun Records reverb plus a crisp guitar work avoids the soulless slickness of say, George Thorogood. And while they’ve mellowed over the decades, this is still authentic good time music ­— gritty, sweaty and boozy. With Chow Tiger. $10. Tremont Music Hall.
