Pinoy and Pissed 

What does moving from the Philippines to the United States do to teenagers? Our consumption-overload culture makes them embrace the rock, naturally. At least, that's the explanation from the members of Los Angeles band Flattbush. Their scatterbrained version of "grindcore" (i.e., Napalm Death) and "experimental" (i.e., Mr. Bungle) aids the band's pissed-off, multilingual diatribe on topics like political disenfranchisement and social injustice. The anger is palpable on songs like "Passion of Satan" and "Smash the Octopus." Flattbush plays with Re:Ignition, Orphans of Aliens, and Cranium on Friday, April 20 at the Uptown. 9 p.m., $10.
