More than just a side project, Marissa Paternoster has been performing with a rotating cast of musicians as Noun for the past ten years. It’s a project that dates back further than the band she’s perhaps known best for, New Jersey-based Don Giovanni Records darlings Screaming Females.
Plus, Noun’s 2010 EP Holy Hell, featuring two ripping garage rock tracks sandwiched around a yearning atmospheric ballad, makes pretty good use of its seven-minutes-and-change. Listen to it below.
As an added bonus, the Sunday Funday bill is rounded out by fellow Jersey project Modern Hut and two Boston rock frontmen-gone-solo (don’t worry, it’s not permanent): Toyota Fjord, the wonderfully-named project from Bent Shapes’ Ben Potrykus, and Chris Keene of Mean Creek performing as Dream Generation.
Go ahead, listen to EVERYTHING below.
Oh and head’s up — there will be some vegetarian BBQing out back behind O’Brien’s, and it’s an 18-plus show, so go ahead and bring that younger sibling of yours who’s actually older than you can believe.
