The Fishing Journal play Snug Harbor tonight (2/29/12)

THE FISHING JOURNAL Part of the burgeoning music scene in the Palmetto state, this trio is the vehicle for the songs of ex-Death Becomes Even the Maiden’s Chris Powell, ex-Restoration drummer Josh Latham and Mercy Shot bassist Reno Gooch. The band’s eponymous six-song EP last year felt like the last decade of synth-pop and glo-stick hippie revivals had never happened, an idea which in general we applaud. Filled with sharp tempo turns, coruscating guitars and hyper-kinetic rhythms, the songs recall everything from Joan of Arc to Slint without pinching too much from any of them. Opening for Secret Hospital, and with Moenda and Jack Toft. $5. Snug Harbor.
