The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, in partnership with Commoditie Booking, presents the St. Augustine Amphitheatre Backyard Block Party featuring Detroit post-punk quartet Protomartyr with Spray Paint and UV-TV. Photomartyr..Joe Casey, guitarist Greg Ahee, drummer Alex Leonard, and bassist Scott Davidson, has released three albums in three years. “The Agent Intellect”, their third and finest album to date, was named after an ancient philosophical questioning of how the mind operates in relation to the self, it’s an elegant and often devastating display of all that makes Protomartyr so vital and singularly visceral an outfit.
Spray Paint is a three-piece no-wave punk attack that will have you on your knees begging for more/mercy. Chainsaw dual-guitars collide with brain-bashing drums and energy-packed gang-vocals for a no-nonsense, off-kilter yet tuneful taste of unrelenting Texas rock ‘n roll. Bizarre detuned guitar licks cross paths with lyrics delivered in the band’s signature deadpan drawl. The whole thing is kind of gross and unsettling – but in the best way possible. Also performing during the Backyard Block Party will be Gainesville, Florida’s UV-TV.
Doors 6:00 p.m. / Show 8:00 p.m.
