Valentine's Day is probably the most hated day of the year. Except for maybe during that one year when things were really faboo, the day does more to drive in that you're alone or that the salad days of your relationship are past. What people really need today is an escape from all that sappy BS: something deeply unwholesome and not remotely romantic.
Well, sure, that would be great, you're probably saying, except since it is Valentine's Day, everywhere in town is serving up heart-shaped steak.
Well, not quite everywhere.
In a gloriously juxtaposed feat of booking, Guttermouth is playing tonight at Gusto.
Who's Guttermouth, you might ask? A band with the gall to write lyrics like "my mom's an asshole" and "sometimes I go pee in the shower / but that doesn't mean I don't love you."
If you're looking for a more odd, less romantic experience this Valentine's Day, you aren't likely to do much better than Guttermouth.
The show starts at 8 p.m., costs $8, and Hotel Chelsea is opening.
