Show Preview: Unsane @ Riot Room 07/20/17
For nearly 30 years (maybe a break or two here and there), NYC’s Unsane have been anchoring the heavy noise rock underground with aplomb. With more of a footing in punk rock than their noisy New York contemporaries in Swans and a heavier, more grind-oriented approach than, say, Helmet, Unsane has slowly but surely becoming synonymous with noise rock.
Regrouping in 2003 after a three year hiatus, the group has three critically acclaimed albums, including their most recent Wreck in 2012 on Alternative Tentacles.
The group comes through Kansas City this Thursday, the 20th, at the Riot Room in Westport. Heavy hitters Fashion Week open the show, alongside local support from the heaviest KC act around, Bummer. Don’t miss the loudest show of the summer.
