VIDEO: Whores. – “I Am Not a Goal Oriented Person” (indieATL Session)

Whores. - I Am Not a Goal Oriented PersonIf we agree that part of the beauty of indieATL is that, by removing bands from the artificial safety of the studio and the adrenalized comfort of a supportive audience, it acts as a kind of de facto judge, separating the pretenders from the real deal up-and-comers, then local noise mongers, Whores., might just be the ideal test case. Over the course of the past couple of years, the band has garnered national attention on the strength of two blistering EPs and a string of incendiary live shows, but the question remained of just how much explosive energy could the group muster when left to their own volitions. I’m going to go ahead and let you draw your own conclusions, but in watching their performance of “I Am Not a Goal Oriented Person,” one of my favorite cuts from their new EP, I think it’s say to say that Whores.’ run of recent success is no fluke. These dudes have got the goods, and by goods I mean murderous riffs, colossal grooves and enough acerbic attitude to cut through a mountain of fancy-pants indie bullshit. Enjoy.

Whores. will perform on Saturday, March 8 at the Basement. Supporting them will be fellow locals Dropout and Pretty Please. Doors open at 9pm. Admission is $10.
