Nashville Pussy, Valient Thorr, Against the Grain

Nashville Pussy

The somewhat legendary Nashville Pussy headline this show, but first we’re telling you about Valient Thorr. The young guns of Valient Thorr, led by singer and songwriter and visual artist Valient Himself, put on one of the most fun shows we’ve ever been to—think of a combination of MC5 and Thin Lizzy, but with a little pro wrestler for a front man. Crazy? Yeah, but also amazing. We’re super, super excited to see them play at Lee’s, one of our favorite venues. Then there’s of course the dirty mouths and rock ‘n’ roll riffs of Nashville Pussy (who happen to be from Atlanta). The band has been making profane rock for almost 20 years now and their new album Up the Dosage is as good as anything in their back catalogue. Openers Against the Grain fit right in with both bands, so get there early enough for them.  8:45 PM. $18. —Taylor Carik
