Secret Hospital, The Fishing Journal, Moenda, Jack Toft

When: Wed., Feb. 29 2012

THE FISHING JOURNAL Part of the burgeoning music scene in the Palmetto state, this trio is the vehicle for the songs of ex-Death Becomes Even the Maiden’s Chris Powell, ex-Restoration drummer Josh Latham and Mercy Shot bassist Reno Gooch. The band’s eponymous six-song EP last year felt like the last decade of synth-pop and glo-stick hippie revivals had never happened, an idea which in general we applaud. Filled with sharp tempo turns, coruscating guitars and hyper-kinetic rhythms, the songs recall everything from Joan of Arc to Slint without pinching too much from any of them. Opening for Secret Hospital, and with Moenda and Jack Toft. (John Schacht)
