Two nights of Trasholes in Tacoma

I've tried to make it a point, when writing about local music, to avoid talking about the ages of the members of the bands I highlight. But I must impress upon you how young the members that make up Gig Harbor garage two-piece Trasholes are, if only to make it abundantly clear to you just how much they have their shit together. Both members are in their mid-to-early teens, and their music is more sophisticated and weird than you could ever expect. Lead singer and guitarist Ian Call's voice rides that line between adolescence and adulthood, which only makes each voice crack sound that much more punk rock.

It's exciting to see another young band following the lead of other shit-kicking acts like the defunct Freakouts and Durango 95.

once more the music writers blow it. i guess no one mentioned that kid congo powers is playing. i like the trasholes but you can write about them all the time.
apparently your music man does'nt know who he is. he played guitar for the gun club & the cramps. Kind of a punk legend.
