The Buttertones

The Shredder, Oct. 5

by

It seems to be a week for 60s-inspired bands to hit Boise, because in addition to Cut Worms' appearance at The Funky Taco, the Los Angeles-based rockers The Buttertones will pop up at The Shredder on Friday, Oct. 5, for a night of post-punk that promises to remind listeners why their prefered decade was nicknamed "The Seismic Sixties." The Buttertones is an introduction to the sound of America before, as the band put it in its Facebook biography, The Beatles "prettied it up." Its fourth and newest album, Midnight in a Moonless Dream (Innovative Leisure, 2018), is a riot of sax, guitar, bass and drums, boiling under lyrics like "Bang! My baby C4's at it again / I'm back as a bunnyman / Runnin' from the mirrors crashing / After me with her heavy, sharp throwing hammer" from the track "Baby C4." Occasionally spooky and always electric, The Buttertones will blow through town like a storm listeners will be lucky to get caught in.
