The Blood Brothers with The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower and Big Business
BlueBird Theater, 3317 E. Colfax Ave., Denver
Tuesday, June 14, 8 p.m.
$10 advance, $12 day of show; ticketweb.com or 303/322-2308

If you haven't yet seen one of the newfangled hardcore bands out there, The Blood Brothers are a good start. They've got it all: vocalists who sing so close to one mike that they nearly make out; a wildly unpredictable stage show; nonsensical, emotional lyrics; screaming; and rock music. You'll mostly notice the warbling falsetto that bubbles from the crooners, causing you to wince and dance during the same song. With lyrics like, "Thanks for the survival rags/ Thanks for the soiled skies/ Thanks for the fucked-up future/ We can learn to love misery," expect nothing less than ear-shattering chaos infused with tortured heartbreak.
