This show celebrates the release of a new 7-inch featuring two songs each from Madison bands Clean Room and Lurk Hards. Clean Room, a trio blasting out playfully scuzzy hard rock, contribute "Jackhammer In A Fur Coat" and "Heartwork," both also released on last year's Madcity Meltdown EP. They followed that up with the March release of the Down To The Axle EP, and recently released a video for one of its tracks, "Run From The Reaper." (Still more recording is planned for later this summer.) Lurk Hards, who combine nimble bluegrass instrumentation with raucous punk songwriting and the powerhouse vocals of Nikki Shackleford, are at once moody and fierce on their two contributions, "Shred Song" and "Rip N Shred." Lurk Hards and Clean Room share the bill here with a third Madison band, standout black-metal duo Tubal Cain. —Scott Gordon
