Partman Parthorse

Spitting distance (possibly literally) from the annual free-for-all folk/world/filthy hippie festival that is Folklife—“gunfire free since 2009!”—venerable Seattle punk dive the Funhouse offers some welcome counterprogramming this weekend in the form of its “Punk Life Festival.” Headlining tonight’s show are Partman Parthorse, a local four-piece whose grinding punk grooves and sneering vocals, delivered by clothing-averse, confrontation-friendly frontman Gary Smith, are ruder than opening fire on a drum circle—and even more fun. Plus, the Funhouse is 21+, so there’s no face-painted brats underfoot fucking up the circle pit. With The House That Ian Dugas Built, Monogamy Party, Poop Attack, Mother's Anger. ERIC GRANDY
