THE WOOLEN MEN, FURY THINGS, LUNCH
(The Know, 2026 NE Alberta) Tonight's self-proclaimed celebration of fuzz pop sees a pair of great local bands sharing the stage with Minnesota's Fury Things. The Woolen Men's lo-fi Flying Nun style should pair up nicely with the amp-blasting pop rock played by the Twin Cities trio. In less than a year, Fury Things have already self-released two catchy and hook-filled EPs that channel the best of '90s indie rock. Bands like Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Superchunk, and Sugar immediately spring to mind. With three of those bands back and strong as ever and Bob Mould's recent return to Sugar form, we're still getting a fix straight from the greats. That said, I don't think I'll ever tire of the day when a band like Fury Things can come along and effortlessly drop heartfelt fuzz bombs, one after another. They've got plenty to show on this first visit to the Northwest, and I'm excited to see what's to come. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
