High Waisted and Fire And The Wheel
$10, 9pm and All Ages at Comet Ping Pong  

High Waisted is a NYC based surf band with pop sensibilities and an affliction for rock and roll. Every show is a party. Lo-fi fuzzy bass, reverb drenched guitars and radiant harmonies mesh to create the melodies of your wave-crashed daydreams. Fronted by Jessica Louise Dye, and backed by three long haired hunks, her quirky 60's garage rock aesthetic is re-imagined from the nose of a surfboard making High Waisted feel like the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film.

Yonatan Gat (ex-Monotonix) and Cigarette
$10, 10pm and All Ages at Comet Ping Pong

Yontatan Gat, formerly of the garage rock outfit Monotonix, is back with a new solo project. The bombastic guitarist focuses his efforts on a new sound that pairs his fuzzy frayed guitar shreds with worldly drums and field recordings found from around the globe creating a blend of punk music that's unpredictably explosive with a unique groove.
