After the release of its debut seven-inch, Ugly, Jack Buck continues to pave the way in the art of brainwave eradication. Too noisy to be categorized as hardcore and too avant-garde to be metal, the band fills the niche for stoners and the art damaged alike. Marking the first of a string of shows since bassist Michael Gerhardt's back injury, Jack Buck will perform with an eclectic lineup including Columbia's New Tongues and a DJ set by ambient outsiders Ou Ou. The headliner is gearing up for a performance at the 2012 PRF BBQ fest put on by Steve Albini's Electrical Audio, and its future is burning ever brighter.

What the Hell? Indie-pop progenies Humdrum and Cartwheel will complete the evening's lineup. Viva Variety!
