Notes on Thrones, Uh Huh Her, and Comma
Joe Preston a/k/a Thrones
Head to P.A.’s Lounge nice and early on May 17 for the sleeper guitar show of the year: ex-Melvin JOE PRESTON sludges solo as THRONES, Orthrelm’s MICK BARR charms solos as if they were cobras as OCRILIM, ex–Common Colder KEVIN MICKA plays brand new ANIMAL HOSPITAL material, and, though they’re more about pounding than shredding, the duo of VVLTVRE are more than noisy enough for any given roomful of tolerant post-metalheads. . . . What’s-her-name that cute blonde girl from The L Word has a band called UH HUH HER who play the Paradise that same night. For some of you, this is awesome news. . . . Surprisingly promising South Boston upstarts COMMA bring their Burma-and-Flipper-tinged post-punk to T.T. the Bear’s Place on May 21. Tip: get in with them now for guest-list spots later. Bonus tip: make them a new logo.
