✔️ Unsane w/Wrong/Horsewhip/Bloodlet/Yashira In the early '90s, Matador Records took Unsane under its wing and let the New York City band dispatch a pioneering, loud and violent noise-rock sound toward the headbanghing masses. Pete Shore and the late Charlie Ondras — Unsane’s original bassist and drummer — aren’t in the lineup anymore, but founding member Chris Spencer is still there to lend grit and hostility to old favorites and new stuff from Unsane’s latest album, Sterilize. A CL favorite, Horsewhip, opens the show in the midst of recording its debut full-length. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
