Class of 2011: Eleven Boston bands to ring in the New Year

The bands you should be listening to this year

DOOMSTAR! | Every time there was a rad show in 2010, it seemed Doomstar! were on the bill, from helping save Somerville's Starlab Studio over the summer to Young Adults' explosive release-party blowout in November. Last February's Rainbow Bloodsucker was a metallic, tin-can torrent of garage-rocking, surf-pop fury, the title track a Pixies-esque whirlwind of fuck-yes that if spun upward correctly could launch itself into the stratosphere and never come back. Two new jams ("Sea Gull" and "Night at the Movies") were posted on New Year's Day to Doomstar!'s Bandcamp. And to keep themselves busy before recording a follow-up album with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth), two-thirds of the band are booking pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS at Middlesex Lounge, a Wednesday-night weekly that showcases live music while they spin '60s psych and weirdo pop under a projection of lavish and bizarre eye candy. It all fits.

NEXT SHOW • January 27 @ Great Scott, Allston
