The Dwarves

Still relishing nudity and mayhem 20 years after the infamous album cover of their 13-song, 14-minute Sub Pop debut Blood Guts & Pussy, the Dwarves haven’t changed much. In 2007, they released a feature-length DVD surrounding a photo shoot with Suicide Girls, and their records continue to be profane stabs of anarchic punk. Fronted still by singer – and occasional novelist – Blag Dahlia and mysterious guitarist HeWhoCannotBeNamed, the band has made sure to live up its nightmarish reputation at every turn. And though it can seem like a one-joke act, the joke shows no signs of wearing thin. Boasting a lineup that tells you all you need to know, this El Corazon bash is the second to celebrate the venue’s fifth anniversary. With Zeke, the Spittin’ Cobras, Neutralboy, and the Triple Sixes.
