Anal Cunt

With Midnight, Schnauzer, and Xrin Arms. Sunday, March 11, at the Grog Shop.

Anal Cunt
Some bands are best experienced live; others are best experienced on record. The ideal Anal Cunt experience is standing in a record store with a friend, flipping through the band's CDs and laughing out loud at the track titles. That's because hearing the music that corresponds to such songs as "Ha Ha, Your Wife Left You," "I Like Drugs and Child Abuse," "I Ate Your Horse," "I Got an Office Job for the Sole Purpose of Sexually Harassing Women," and the probably inevitable "Being Ignorant Is Awesome" is one of life's more disappointing experiences. In the end, A.C. is nothing but a generic grindcore band with hilariously offensive song titles.

There is some gawk-at-the-car-wreck value to this gig, though: Vocalist Seth Putnam OD'd himself into a coma back in 2004 and has been forced to undergo extensive physical and mental rehabilitative therapy. So perhaps watching him crawl out from under the karmic wheel will provide some amusement for what will be a fairly average gig.
