Red Fang

Red Fang has played most of the key, mid-sized venues around Seattle in the last year—from the Funhouse to Chop Suey—but they’ve never seemed more at home than at the Sunset, so it’s fitting they headline the Ballard club’s 10-year anniversary show tonight. “There's a different vibe up in Ballard; a vibe we can relate to,” says drummer John Sherman. “It's changed a lot over the past 10 years, but you can still get a cheap drink with some salty dogs right next door,” he expounds with affection, referring to the beloved Smoke Shop next door. Portland’s purveyors of elephantine-heavy, punk-infused awesomeness recently finished mixing their next record, which includes anthemic set list staple “Malverde.” Tonight’s bill also features the DJ presence of vinyl archivist and former Fallout Records owner Tim Hayes. With Kinski, Virgin Islands, Eugene Wendell and The Demon Rind, DJ Tim Hayes. HANNAH LEVIN
