The Blind Shake (Goner Records) w/ Gallery Night, Devils Teeth

Blind Shake

(Minneapolis)

"The Blind Shake is at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One guitar, one baritone guitar, a fuckload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic medal." --SF Weekly

Fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha, with friend Dave Roper on drums, the trio have been tunneling through the underground since before telephones could talk. Having seven full length albums to their credit, several singles, three collaborations with psych legend Michael Yonkers and another with down-stroke warrior John Reis, the band continues to push the sliding scale between catchy punk songs and pitch red noise.

They have recently toured with Swami John Reis, Thee Oh Sees, as well as headlined US, Canadian and European tours. The band has played the UK's End of the Road Festival, Sled Island in Calgary, Gonerfest, SXSW, and several other festivals. They have also provided support for Billy Idol, Rocket From the Crypt, Spiritualized, The Spits, No Bunny, The Urinals, Red Cross, A Frames, and Mike Watt.
