An Evening with Helmet — Betty 20th Anniversary Show

Continuing the trend du jour of performing classic albums from start to finish, Helmet will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Betty tonight. Blending some of the best features of punk, hardcore and metal, Helmet crafted a mid-90s masterpiece with this one. Everything hits: the chugging guitar; the thumping bass; the emotional-slacker vocals; and, chief among the stellar instrumentation, John Stanier’s snare-heavy percussion work. From “Wilma’s Rainbow” and “I Know” to single “Milquetoast” and deeper cuts like “Vaccination,” Helmet grounded its music in the more innovative punk traditions of the 1980s, differing sharply from their more “nu-metal” contemporaries. Guitarist/frontman Page Hamilton has said the goal of this album was to get out of whatever comfort zone had been forming for the young band: “We'd been together for four years as a band by the time we'd done Betty, and to me, as the songwriter, it was time to put on the lab coat and try some other stuff.” (Eric Sandy)
