The Coathangers 

The Olympic, Wednesday, March 6

From its quirky music videos to its simple, ear-catching sound, Georgia-based garage band The Coathangers is pure vintage. Songs like "Bimbo" and "Make It Right," with their catchy beats and tight harmonies, could just as easily have hit the radio in the '60s, but the band betrays its decade with occasional dips into current politics—in itself a long musical tradition. In a Talkhouse writeup, The Coathangers singer Julie Kugel said the band knew its song "F the NRA," from the upcoming release The Devil You Know (March 2019, Suicide Squeeze Records), "willfully provokes the beast," but decided to go forward with the song anyway as an indictment of recent gun violence and the lack of comprehensive changes to gun regulation. In true punk rock fashion, Kugel added, "If we want to be a part of the solution, perhaps we must be loud!" Join The Coathangers at The Olympic on March 6 to crank the volume dial.
