Behold Fear: the rulers of loud-fast-rules punk, with awesomely boneheaded lyrics and precision-machined music that made them one of the most formidable bands in L.A. punk. (Fear was like putting an attack dog’s brain in a Terminator’s body—it’ll tear you up in ways you just can’t imagine!) Singer Lee Ving has quite the set of pipes—one to sing with and a heavier one to beat you with—and drummer Spit Stix was one of L.A.’s secretly most accomplished drummers, with a sense of rhythm and destruction more befitting a ticking time bomb. They're on the bill this week with spiritual descendants the Dwarves, who are pop geniuses when they wanna be but will also just smush you up. Like the man says: “Play pussy, get fucked!”
