Hawthorne Theatre Southeast Portland (Portland)
$20 - $23
A handful of bands like Strung Out and the Casualties, who both arguably reached their prime in the mid- to late-’90s punk-rock push, are suddenly rushing back out onto the field. While the skinny high school kid in my heart swoons, it also makes one think about what the political landscape looked like back then versus what it looks like now (shudders). The high energy, brutal truth, and unapologetic attitude of punk rock is needed again. And while nostalgia is awesome, thankfully there are bands like Portland’s Cliterati to bring a fresh, fire-spitting sound. Cliterati’s recent full-length, Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies, is a raw, crusty, metallic hardcore that pulls zero punches. Songs like “Silence = Death,” “Trans Is Beautiful,” and 50-second shredder “In Crust We Trust” are brash, fast, and fierce. Cliterati make you think and challenge the norms of society right before they rip your fucking head off. by Aris Hunter Wales
