Kississippi, Reduction Plan, Bilge Rat, and Milkshakes 12/21 @ Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes, Oakville CT By Susan McLean
There was no way in hell I was going to miss Kississippi's first CT show, so I had my calendar marked (weeks) in advance. Since their release of We Have No Future, We're All Doomed, I've been borderline obsessed with their raw vibe. The show was great, everything smelled like cupcakes (why don't we have more shows at bakeries????????) and it was a really cool homecoming for Kupson (Kississippi) who is native to the CT scene, but has been living in Philly.
Unfortunately I didn't grab any photos of Bilge Rat.
Reduction Plan call themselves 'Groovy goth jams' and I really liked them. Download their newest release on Bandcamp for free if you're interested.
Milkshakes identify as 'Connecticut Indie Punk FFO dessert' but are reminiscent of Born Without Bones.
Kississippi brand themselves as 'PHL Popviolence FT members of the CTEmo board' and have been featured on Bruised Knuckles recently for their new release.
What we're listening to.
