Teen garage-punk duo Archie & the Bunkers are on a tear — they just can’t seem to stop tossing out new music. Brothers Emmett (drums/vocals) and Cullen (organ/vocals) O’Connor may not have reached drinking age yet but they’ve forged a musically sophisticated blend of influences that reach back into the dark ages — the ’60s — and fold in a contemporary sensibility.
In their second record release event of the year, they’ll be putting out their second full-length LP Songs from the Lodge, on London-based Dirty Water Records. In February celebrated the release of a single “The Traveler” at the Beachland, and now they’ll be crossing town to debut the album at Mahall’s 20 Lanes in Lakewood.
They’ll be bringing back a couple of friends of their to DJ between sets, Miriam Linna and Nick Knox of the Cramps. (Linna also co-founded Norton Records which released “The Traveler.”) The bill also features another garage punk duo Two Hands and surf-punk trio Pack Wolf.
Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door. It’s an all-ages show, of course.
