Pachinko, Wheelie King, PowerWagon

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Madison noise-rock outfit Pachinko play here to celebrate their new album State Your Grievances, the band's first release since 1999's Splendor In The Ass II: Electric Boogaloo. Sporting four original members from the band's 1990s heyday and an album cover that's sure to make people feel a certain kind of way, State Your Grievances lives up to Pachinko's reputation for excoriating, scuzzy post-hardcore and maniacally twisted humor. But there's also variety in Pachinko's attack, from the grime-coated shuffle of "Interstellular Underbite" to the jagged chromatic riffing of songs like "The Flea" and "Used Cars." Even after a 10-year break, Pachinko still epitomize a certain winkingly fucked-up quality that runs through a lot of heavy music in the Midwest, and they bring it across with as much vicious abandon as ever. —Scott Gordon
