Holy White Hounds w/ Mutts, Surrounded By Giants

Yacht Club — Thursday, June 26 at 9 p.m. ($5)

Des Moines’ Holy White Hounds are a rock and roll band with capital R’s. Lead by Brenton Dean, the three-piece have been playing since 2013 but have already built a reputation for crazy live shows with their in-your-face, tough-guy bravado. Their grimy, dim-lit garage rock will fit in very nicely with the Yacht Club’s grimy, dim-lit basement.

Chicago’s Mutts will be opening the show. Recently hitting the five year mark, the band’s history is a who’s who of Chicago indie rock, with members (and former members) playing in The Hush Sound, Company of Thieves and Empires, among many, many others. Their third full-length, Object Permanence, was released in April 2013 after the group successfully raised $10,000 via Kickstarter. The album, recorded live and unplugged, was met with a fair amount of critical acclaim.

Surrounded By Giants, an up-and-coming four piece from Iowa City, will be filling out the bill with a bit more of a funk-rock vibe. For just five bucks, this is a no-brainer show for fans of raw rock n’ roll.
