nightshop – Potty Mouth, Colleen Green, Leggy, The Complaint Line

June 21, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Potty Mouth (Northampton, MA/Los Angeles, CA) – Pop Rock

Potty Mouth arrived in the early 2000-teens as a feel-good punk rock force from the fabled Western Massachusetts scene. Formed while Einbinder and Mandanas were students at Smith College, and Weems a local rocker, they quickly made a national name for themselves with their brand of art-sensible power-punk wrapped in a catchy, fist-pumping package. Their Sun Damage EP in 2012 and their debut LP, 2013’s Hell Bent, put them on the map, and the subsequent years of touring and an acclaimed self-titled EP in 2015 reinforced their status as one of punk’s most rock-solid and talented upstarts.

In 2016, Potty Mouth moved to Los Angeles and began working with engineer Courtney Ballard to record a stockpile of songs they had created over the years since the release of their self-titled EP. This collection of songs have come together as “SNAFU” the band’s sophomore album released March 1, 2019 on Get Better Records.

Colleen Green (Los Angeles, CA) – Pop Punk, Stoner Punk, Pop, Experimental

“Colleen Green is Anything/Colleen Green is Nothing.” Be that is she may, we are absolutely thrilled to host her at nightshop!

Leggy (Cincinnati, OH) – Lush Punk, Rock & Roll

Let Me Know Your Moon is Leggy’s first release since their debut s/t in 2017 on Damnably Records, which compiled their previous EPs and singles into one remastered release. The record generated buzz from outlets such as Stereogum, Noisey, GoldFlakePaint and The Grey Estates – more than one of which praised the trio’s “swaggering punk rock”. “This album felt like a long time coming,” explained guitarist/vocalist Veronique Allaer of the new record, continuing “I tried to channel that nervous energy into pure adrenaline on the recording. Over the summer of 2019 I went to Antwerp, Belgium to spend a month at my grandparents’ home. They had both passed away and their beautiful home was on the market so I went to spend time there before it was sold. I felt a bit secluded and insular during the days there; I wanted to force myself to be creative. Being alone for a month in another country where I didn’t speak the language, surrounded by my family’s art, decor and clothing was super inspiring. My grandmother was such a special strong woman, the matriarch of our small family.”

The result is Let Me Know Your Moon, twelve tracks (including the previously released single “Not What You Need”) which deal heavily in interpersonal relationships. “The most prominent theme in this album is a relationship where you have to take a step back and ask ‘does this person water me? Do I water them?’ – meaning, do we help each other grow, are we good for each other? Is there anything more painful than realizing the person you love is no longer good for you?” explains Veronique of the album’s overarching themes. Lead single “Eden” contains the album’s title in its lyrics, drawing on the album’s motifs of questioning fate and how things like horoscopes have the potential to affect all of us – even if only as self-fulfilling prophecies.
