Lightning Bolt drummer and vocalist Brian Chippendale brings his pop-inspired solo project, Black Pus, to Burque. Don’t let the pop-inspired tag fool you; this hook-laden work is still brutal as heck, but it’s blistering noise-rock that easily lends itself to dancing (or swaying, as is my personal wont). Black Pus purveys its herky-jerky hit parade at Small Engine Gallery (1413 Fourth Street SW) on Friday, May 24. Extra-special guests include John Dieterich (Deerhoof) and [H]OHM, which is comprised of members of Sabertooth Cavity and Tenderizor. Put your earplugs in at 8:30 p.m., and scrounge up $8 for admission.
