Milwaukee's Fox Face play ruthless, expressive punk on their debut album, Spoil + Destroy, whose release they'll celebrate at this show. Upon hearing the album, one picks up an array of standout styles from sinister, post-punk guitar riffs to demanding vocals that range from snarls to shrieks to cacophonous interludes between periods of straight-ahead punk. Spoil + Destroy covers a lot of ground, from wound up irritability to bleeding, brooding rumination. These stylistic shifts throughout Spoil + Destroy seem to naturally align with the stormy emotional ground and raw, fiery frustration evident in their playing and their lyrics. Fox Face cut the shit when tackling feminism and politics, with lyrics full of animosity, cheeky impudence, and enigmatic witchiness. They play here with Madison's No Hoax, who play blisteringly brazen punk, as well as Cool Building—a new supergroup of three locals who can be seen hollerin', janglin', and thrashin' around town. —Emili Earhart
