Puff Pieces

FRINGE Music in the Library:: Puff Pieces

Friday, April 8, 2016, 12 p.m.

Puff Pieces are a three piece post-punk band comprised of longtime D.C. musicians (featuring members of El Guapo, Supersystem, E.D. Sedgwick, Weed Tree, and Caution Curves, among others). The band plays a kind of kraut rock-inspired art-punk, with bits of nervous rhythms combined with angular riffs and jangly outbursts. Puff Pieces strives to destroy the bland hegemony of their city’s condo-crazed culture with a mix of melody and nervous dissonance.
