Hawks side project Youth XL debuts tonight (Saturday, April 6) at the Basement, sharing the bill with their primary band's split seven-inch mates, Minnesota noise rockers Buildings. The split, expected to drop later this month, will be released by Denver's Cash Cow Production.

"(Youth XL) sounds like Big Black, Whitehouse, Brainbombs," Hawks and Youth XL singer Michael Keenan explains. "It's drum machine, power electronics punk. Live this time it'll be me singing and doing some live noise loops, and Shane (Patrick, Hawks and AkuYou drummer) doing some backing vocals and percussion." Keenan added that the live lineup will change per show, with pre-programmed drum parts written by Patrick and Wymyn's Prysyn drummer Bobby Michaud.

Tonight's show will also be the last local appearance for a while by Whores, a noise rock trio that, according to its Facebook page, is slated for upcoming studio time and a tour. Local hardcore shredders Dropout round out the lineup.

Buildings, Whores, Youth XL, and Dropout play the Basement tonight (Sat., April 6). 9 p.m. 1245 Glenwood Ave. 404-622-8686.
