Concert preview: Hookers Made Out of Cocaine mixes chaos and fun

From the July 31, 2014 edition

By all accounts this scrappy punk trio doesn’t take itself too seriously. An early record release show featured an actual record release, with copies of the album sent skyward attached to helium balloons. Songs like “Way to Go Ross Perot” are similarly tongue-in-cheek, layering together sneering vocals, cranky drums and guitar riffs that gnash and snarl like bickering foes. This show doubles as a release party for the trio’s new record, a split 7-inch recorded with North Dakota’s Duffy & the Beer Slayers.

Ground Water Mafia, Salvage and the excellently named Estee Louder also perform.
