squeaky shout out in the mercury for upcoming portland show

(Rotture, 315 SE 3rd) Two good-times dudes from Seattle, Ear Venom have been cultivating their psychedelic and experimental noise-fuckery, blasting Portland's eardrums every couple of months. Having much in common with local favorites Yellow Swans, Ear Venom twist and mangle processed guitar, tape loops, and sequencers through delay and various filters, leaving a thick grimy film crawling through your skin and blackening your cortex. Playing this night with DRUGS, who have transformed themselves into one of the noisiest and most crushing black metal bands in Portland. Recent addition to the band, Jared (SCARD)'s ferocious screams are quite terrifying and complement Bennett's gurgling groans and heavy bass drone. JAMES SQUEAKY
