Yucky Duster

Shea Stadium hosts holiday show with Yucky Duster, Bueno, Fits, and Emmerson & Her Clammy Hands 12.21

When the longstanding Brooklyn DIY landmark Shea Stadium was forced to close its doors this past spring things looked grim. But, at the end of what’s been a long and difficult year for so many more reasons, Shea has thankfully managed to keep going in the interim by hosting events at other venues while it hunts for a new space to inhabit. Closing out the year, Shea brings a lineup of local favorites to Brooklyn Bazaar on December 21st: Yucky Duster’s scrappy punk, Bueno’s crispy alt-rock, Fits’ unhinged DIY energy, and Emmerson and Her Clammy Hands' intimate bedroom songs. Though Shea is still deep in the process of finding a new home, let’s hope this is the only year without a stadium. – Cameron Carr

Yucky Duster open for LVL UP at Baby's All Right on 10.07

Yucky Duster will take the stage at Baby's All Right to open for LVL UP on October 7th. The four-piece have had quite a year, releasing their second EP Duster's Lament in January and receiving write-ups from VICE and Stereogum soon afterwards. Their Baby's opening act with Long Beard follows other performances with big indie acts earlier this year, including Sammus, Charly Bliss, and Shonen Knife. A few months ago, they released the music video for their Duster's Lament track "The Ropes". Watch it below. - Will Sisskind

Charly Bliss unveil video for 'Percolator' + leave for small tour

New York's "bubblegrunge" sensation Charly Bliss are climbing our local charts for emerging artists and will soon embark in a small New England/Upstate NY tour. Their new LP, Guppy, is a series of tightly-composed indie-pop romps that are at once lyrically gruesome and disarmingly sensitive. In addition to their impasssioned musicianship, the band's sense of humor shines brilliantly through in the video for "Ruby," an absurdist take on public access/infomercial television that will appeal to fans of Tim and Eric. Check it out below, together with their latest one for single 'Percolator'! - Ethan Ames

Yucky Duster bring their charming brand of garage rock to Aviv on 6.15

Yucky Duster is a new project comprised of members of Brooklyn-based bands Bluffing, Slonk Donkerson, and The Gradients. Their self-titled debut album was released on June 3rd, and is a colorfully catchy record that takes on a charmingly melodic sound with bits of 60’s surf rock and punk influences scattered throughout. The track “Friend Zone” (streaming below) is characterized by its snotty vocals that ask the question “does that make me a bitch?”, mocking society’s view of a woman who puts someone in the “friend zone.” “Blue Elvis” however deals with the desire for someone you know is bad for you. The song starts off as a slow paced doo-wop before evolving into a surf rock inspired punk tune. While the record is just shy of hitting the 20 minute mark, it packs a ton of different sounds - and fun. Yucky Duster will be playing Aviv on June 15th in support of Melt.
