Warm, cuddly night with KOZA and friends at JJ's
Ears are gonna bleed this Saturday, Jan. 10 at JJ’s Bohemia as KOZA takes the stage with special guests Skinwalker and Lost Limbs. What’s absolutely certain is that the audience is going to witness a first-class axe-kicking.
The hardcore quartet featuring drummer Matt Reynolds, bassist Arettie Ford, guitarist Russ Cannon and vocalist Brooks Rose are celebrating one year together this month. Self-described as a mix of psychedelic, stoner/sludge metal, hardcore and punk, the band’s sound is positively savage with an intensity that dials it up to eleven, breaks off the knob and makes sweet love to the amplifier before pulverizing it. They’re pretty nasty in all the best ways, is what I’m saying.
If you can’t make that show, the band has a follow-up gig a week later on the 17th at Sluggo’s where they’ll be welcoming Frankie Teardrop and RMG III. Be sure to check out KOZA’s soon-to-be-reviewed debut EP, available now via bandcamp.com for a mere $5.
If hardcore is in your blood, if you have a passion for weaponized music or if you just enjoy music that makes you feel like you could smash through a brick wall, you CANNOT miss KOZA. Somewhere in a dark, festering place Oderus Urungus is looking down and nodding in approval.
