Wimps Play Cheer Up Charlies Sunday 6/18

Masters of awkward pop. Purveyors of no-frills punk. Ambassadors of lo-fi rock. However you want to describe Seattle band Wimps, there’s a lot to love about this trio. Carrying the torch of the style of unpretentious, nonchalant punk that stretches back to the Pacific Northwest’s Beat Happening in the early 80s, Wimps make songs that don’t have to try hard to be be infectious and endearing. The band plays Cheer Up Charlies this Sunday evening supported by Nike, Talkies, and Strange Mother. No better way to spend your Sunday night. Check out the Wimps’ video for “Old Guy” below, and check out more about the band here.
