The Akabane Vulgars On Strong Bypass Play The Shredder 

Friday, Aug. 30

At The Vibrators' concert at The Shredder in September, 2012, the pioneering UK punk band's show was almost stolen by one of the opening acts, the Japanese all-girl trio The Akabane Vulgars On Strong Bypass. The swaggering, pulverizing rhythms laid down by Miki Uchizono's bass and Kei Sofue's drums supported Yumi Uchizono's bluesy riffs and shrieking solos. With her low growl, Yumi sodunded like she could've eaten Shonen Knife for breakfast.

The trio played South By Southwest in 2012 as part of the Japan Nite Showcase and the Treefort-esque Tokyo Boot Up in 2011 and 2012. Having returned for a brief West Coast tour, the band's tour will stretch across the United States.

Earplugs are highly recommended. Still, expect a little ringing in your ears the next day.
