The Spits

The glorious, debauched spectacle that is a live show by local punk veterans the Spits is always a night to remember, but this particular date should be off the proverbial hook. The band has much to celebrate beyond the release of their split 7-inch with British garage rocker Dan Melchior; Island Def Jam Records has agreed to release the vinyl version of their last self-titled record. In addition to their pals in local band Coconut Coolouts, they will be joined by Personal and the Pizzas, a like-minded San Francisco-based outfit they’ve previously toured with in Sweden, but who have never played Seattle. What’s more, the boys are giving out free pizza and champagne and were wise enough to recruit DJs Kurt Bloch and Danger Nun, who always kick out serious jams. Just plan on calling in sick now.
