Bands Nots & DANA headline day three of WOBIE Fest.
Nots are one of the most interesting garage punk bands in recent memory at the same time maintaining insistent tempos strumming guitars and sometimes absurd and unruly synthesizers. At times Nots bring up memories of the innovative group thud and rallying group vocals of the Raincoats. Nots are also true heirs to Memphis’s amazing and underrated punk heritage where the rules of genre are unwritten and only mystery, mayhem, adventure, and a wild sense fun of fun are the only suitable descriptors.
DANA are simply the best band in Ohio. A maelstrom of electro-guitar violence, fuzzy bass, piercing theremin and whiplash drums, DANA bring back memories of the previous two best bands in Ohio, 3RA1N1AC (Braniac) and Pere Ubu in their combination of primal Rock’n’Roll at its most essential with Eno-esque electronic interruptions and destructions. Be the envy of everyone in 20 years because this band is sure to enter the pantheon of the Ohio Shaped State's rock pantheon.
