Pissed Jeans @ Doug Fir (21+)

I saw Pissed Jeans at last year's Pitchfork Music Festival and they were by far the funniest group there (except for maybe R. Kelly, but he walks a fine line in regards to his self-awareness [and, ya know, that sexual assault/child porn stuff isn't funny despite how many jokes are made about it]). Pissed Jeans' frontman Matt Korvette has some major David Yow vibes, strutting the stage and flinging his arms in some middle-aged appropriation of a toddler's hissy fit. When I saw them last, he tore through 3 Jack Daniels tank tops, two of which he was wearing over each other and the third which flew from some assistant (whom I assume only has one job, which is to keep Korvette in Jack Daniels tank tops) offstage. Pissed Jeans music is angry, crushing punk that yelps about the pains of being middle-aged (Korvette and co. confirmed their middle-agedness by looking backwards and reissuing their first albums this year, which is what I am assuming they are touring on, besides 2013's Honeys). Even if you aren't 35 and working a dead end middle-class job, it'll be worth it to come out and mosh your feelings out to this show.
