Chain & The Gang, Strange Boys

Post Author: , Kati Prescott

After an evening jog of Saturday night’s Noise Pop offerings, I made a literal dash to the Elbo Room. An event that promised to dwarf the surrounding festivities with a little help from Nodzzz, the Strange Boys, Ty Segall and Chain and the Gang featuring Ian Svenonius (of Nation of Ulysses, K Records, Weird War, Scene Creamers).

Nodzzz kicked off with “Troubled Times.” “Hey, um, is this Noise Pop?” Sean Paul Presley chided, taking the piss out of the competing events outside. Nodzzz being a band apart from those huddled masses of amped up potential, the group sang their way through some tricky new material to crowd pleasers like “Is She There” from What’s Your Rupture?
