Price: $5
CrateOakland.com
Oakland band Meat Market writes infectious, hooky pop punk, and the band recently released its latest album, Dig Deep — a long-anticipated follow-hop to its 2012 self-titled album. The new record is rife with punchy, fast-paced major chord riffs and happy-go-lucky rhythms. The group has a goofy, self-effacing sense of humor that gives them an underdog appeal, and Dig Deep — the title of which is an allusion to the introspective nature of its tracks — contains lyrics that the socially awkward introverts among us will surely relate to: Into this hole I will go/Find comfort in what you know, as the hook of “Hole” goes. To celebrate Dig Deep, Meat Market has a show at Crate in Downtown Oakland with garage-pop band Younger Lovers — the project of Oakland queer punk auteur, author, and dancer Brontez Purnell. Fellow punk band Yi and screamo band Lofter join them on the bill, along with DJ Doggie Chow.
