Rabbits, Fist Fite, Monogamy Party, Brokaw
2035 NE Glisan St.
[HEAVY PUNK] Oh, those guys in Rabbits are a funny bunch. It might not seem like it, listening to the Portland band's pulverizing, brain-mashing metallic punk, but the dudes have a sense of humor that bites as much as their music brawls. Take, for instance, the group's latest release: a two-song flexi disc that looks like a postcard, one side featuring a cover of the early Black Flag classic "Wasted" (represented by a drawing of a crushed can of Coors Light), the other a version of Minor Threat's "Straight Edge" (represented by a crumpled Coke can). It's not only just the sort of awesome memorabilia we music editors love finding in our mailbox, it's also a nice joke on the twin indulgences of the hardcore lifestyle. Rabbits might often sound frightening, but really they're just having fun.
