Celebration last Friday's Inauguration most likely wasn't the purpose of Bad Boys Club releasing their debut four song EP, Inauguration Day, on Inauguration Day. Bad Boys Club are kind of a Boston rock scene supergroup made up of members of Dirty Bangs and These Wild Plains. Considering both those bands share a fairly upbeat and light aesthetic (Dirty Bangs are a pretty straightforward poppy alternative rock band while These Wild Plains rock Tom Petty meets early Wilco Americana), it's quite striking how heavy Inauguration Day is. The sound is a less experimental and heavier At the Drive In, or maybe a less screamy Refused. I love when bands form side projects that sound like nothing you'd expect, and Bad Boys Club delivers in that regard.
You can get your copy of Inauguration Day at Bad Boys Club's Bandcamp. All proceeds from the purchase will be donated to Planned Parenthood. You can listen to the first song on Inauguration Day, "SHUT DOWN/SHOT OUT," below. For more information on Bad Boys Club, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
