SHOW ME THE BODY WITH PHALLUS UBER ALLES, SAFE/WORD, AND NYCTERENT

“Calling something ‘progressive’ can sometimes be a reductive term. It’s a go-to tag for music that meanders, for instance. And it’s often a default phrase for anything remotely uncool, in the most cynical sense. The truth is, Queens/Western Massachusetts group Show Me The Body are ruthlessly cool. They progress, too. Snapping hardcore in half and giving punk a dose of new meds, their brutally raw form (on record and on stage) is a different kind of rush. As part of Ratking’s Letter Racer collective, they’re in the perfect place to continue progressing, all while putting a spin on that old term.” – DIY. 

Show Me the Body is immediate and raw, powerful and inspiring, efusive and unrelenting. They’re like no other band on the scene, combining disparate elements of punk and hardcore, hip-hop and electronic music, folk and indie-rock… But this is not a pastiche or a tastless menagerie. Their sound is a deep synthesis, entirely new or their own. This is a band that has somehow shared the stage with BADBADBNOTGOOD, Ghostface Killah, Antwon, Trash Talk, Wiki, and Health, and never felt out of place…

Show Me the Body will be joined by the digital hardcore rage of Phallus Uber Alles, the blown-out skronk&roll of Safe/Word, and the multi-sensory chaos of Nycterent.

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
