New Exit Clov/Jukebox the Ghost side project, Drunken Sufis, to hold album release show August 30 in NYC

drunken sufis

Well, this was totally unexpected. Two D.C. bands with close ties to Knox Road, Exit Clov and Jukebox the Ghost, have teamed up with various members of each to form a side-project, Drunken Sufis. Drunken Sufis display a political conspiracy-themed punk music so entirely different than the melodic pop rock of both Exit Clov and Jukebox the Ghost – with songs that range from, if I may steal a line from their press release, “30-second spaz-prog bursts (“Jeff Gannon Reprise”), to angular dance punk (“I Know Where AIDS Comes From”), to dual-guitar freakouts (“Neo-Con Sacrifice”) “.

The Sufis take us back in time to the Bush administration on their debut album Americans Fuck. …I can assure you, this is no joke. The official Americans Fuck album release show is going down this Sunday night, August 30, at The Cake Shop, with even more KR favorites, D.C.’s Deleted Scenes and Boston’s Pretty & Nice. I got a feeling it’ll be worth your while.
