KASBAH Social Club - Limerick, V94 KX51, Ireland
After nearly three decades of launching drums and pianos through the shifting interzones between harmony and chaos (moonlighting along the way with the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Jon Spencer and the HITmakers, Wild Flag, Elliott Smith, Built to Spill and a long list of others), Quasi are a genre of their own. Breaking the Balls of History is Quasi’s tenth record, landing ten years after their last record, on February tenth. Three tens, which aligns with the thirty years they’ve played together. Sam Coomes and Janet Weiss have become Pacific Northwest icons, and Quasi has always felt so steadfast— their enduring friendship so generative, their energy infinite, each album more raucous and catchy and ferocious and funny than the last.
