Miscellaneous Shows at Gusto Bar in July

A show listing came across our desks here at BWHQ that reminded us funky names are not the domain of emo or scene bands. While bands like Motionless in White, Watchout! There's Ghosts--a fun, poppy, electronic duo--and Eyes Set to Kill (who are all playing at The Venue this month) seem like they're trying to outdo themselves in ambiguity, punk, metal and all-kinds-of-core bands also often bestow themselves with names that may not be quite as cryptic but are just as peculiar.

This month, promoter Too Much Distortion brings a handful of local and out-of-town oddly named bands to the Boise area.

At Gusto on Wednesday, July 1, hear Antagony, Fallujah, Cast Into Finality and Slain in Silence. Show starts at 8 p.m., cover is $3.

Again at Gusto on Saturday, July 4, enjoy barbecue and a free 4 p.m. show with Vagerfly, Quickies, IP Address, Hotdog Sandwich, Demoni, Pull Out Quick, The PirkQlaters (they're back?!) and Mass Mortem.

Head to the (Foot)hills on Sunday, July 5, for The Human Quena Orchestra, PussyGutt, Cat Crap and Jument. It's back to Gusto on Wednesday, July 8, for Blue Million Miles, La Knots and Malachi.

Cat Crap? We can't even make this stuff up.
