Antarctigo Vespucci, a newborn project anchored by Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb the Music Industry!) and Chris Farren (Fake Problems), arrives here in support of a pair of pop-punk EPs whose titles - Soulmate Stuff and I'm So Tethered - hint at the natural connection between the collaborators. The pace of the music (songs tend to arrive in a caffeinated rush of twitchy guitar, sneered vocals and crashing drums) echoes its creation; the crew's latest short-player, I'm So Tethered, was written, recorded and released in under two weeks. Even so, the songs exist as more than mere sketches, and even at their wiriest there's still ample meat on the bones.
A killer trio of bands opens the concert, including California punks Hard Girls and locals Van Dale and Sega Genocide, so be sure to get there early.
