  • Chain and the Gang

Ian Svenonius is not a front man you’re likely to forget. If you’ve seen him perform with his influential Washington, DC, bands Nation of Ulysses, the Make-Up, Weird War—or Chain and the Gang, which hits BSP Lounge in Kingston this Friday—you know he’s a squealing, writhing rock ’n’ roll wild child of the first order and always has a kick-ass unit behind him. One you don’t wanna miss.

Chain and the Gang’s fourth and newest vinyl missive is the awesomely titled Minimum Rock n Roll, which came out last year on the legendary Dischord label. Besides dealing in self-described “crime rock” with Chain and the Gang, Svenonius is an all-around punk bon vivant, authoring two books, DJing, making films, and hosting an online talk show.

Take a gander at this bizarre video for “Devitalize”:

Chain and the Gang will perform at BSP Lounge in Kingston on July 31 at 8:30pm. Shilpa Ray will open. Yours truly will be spinning the hot wax. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of show. For more information, call (845) 481-5158 or visit
