Show Review: NOTS knocked it out of the park in Philly at Everybody Hits

One of our favorite Philly megababes Evan Raab checked out NOTS as they rocked one of our favorite venues-Everybody Hits-in Philly last week.


So you’re starting a rock band. You have your guitar, check. Bass, check. Drums, check. Microkorg, check. Wait, what? A bit unconventional maybe, but Memphis rockers Nots made it work as they delivered heavy garage punk textured by wavy synth patches to a PBR-drinking crowd at Everybody Hits on a beautiful Wednesday Fall night. Some of the tones highlighted the poppy-but-still-heavy fuzzed-out hooks and chord progressions while some helped wash out the band’s spacious white noise interludes. The driving beats maintained a high-paced tempo with the audience nodding in time under the moody lighting during the intimate performance while front woman Natalie Hoffman serenaded us all with bratty, punching vocals. One part Metz, one part Le Tigre, one part Blouse with short songs packed with lots going on, check out their new LP Cosmetic out on Goner Records.
