Valient Thorr Thrash, Giraffes Imbibe

BROOKLYN, NY: The Venusian band and the Brooklynites embraced the trashy atmosphere of the borough's Trash Bar.

Burlatia, Venus’ Valient Thorr (read more) made the long trek to Brooklyn last night where they delivered a head-banging, sweat-drenched set at Williamsburg’s home of cheap booze and truck-stop kitsch, Trash Bar. With Brooklyn’s own Jack Daniels-chugging purveyors of sleaze-rock, the Giraffes (read more), warming up the stage before them the night had a simple vibe: straight up rock’n’fucking roll. There was no art rock, no indie rock, no pop rock — just sweat, piss, puke, loud guitars, and copious booze-swilling. STORY BY ASCH HARWOOD. PHOTOS BY MITCHELL FRYE
