Potty Mouth may not be as vulgar as their name implies, but they can write a mean fucking hook. Hailing from the indie rock mini-Mecca of Northampton, Mass., the band is touring behind Hell Bent, its first full-length album, brought to you by Old Flame Records. I had no idea what to expect from my first show of the year, given the sub-zero temperatures, but Potty Mouth’s buzz seems to have more than made up for the bad weather. This seven-song, twenty-five minute headlining set told you all you need to know about this band. They showed up, delivered one catchy salvo of feminist pop-punk after another, and called it a night. It was economical, it got it done, it reminded you why you braved the cold.

In particular, I found myself nodding along to “The Spins”, a song about that well-known consequence of too much booze, and equally captivated by the closer “The Better End”, which gives guitarist Phoebe Harris a turn at the vocal mic. Like fellow Northampton residents Speedy Ortiz, among others, Potty Mouth ought to remind those who ditched guitar rock with a purpose for watered-down laptop R&B exactly what they were missing.

I recorded this set with our installed Naiant X-R microphones in the venue, plus a soundboard feed provided by the outstanding head house engineer Josh Thiel. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    Wow what a pleasant surprise. Had no idea you guys were in the building. have to admit I was blown away also. So much so that I had to see them at Boots & Saddle in Philly later that week. What ever “it” is these women have “IT”. Looking forward to seeing them again next time the come through here again. Certain they’ll be playing the Bowery Ballroom or at least Webster Hall by the summer of ’14. They are proof when you give intelligent, talent, empowered women guitars they rock it out harder than most male bands could only wish they could. Thanks again for being present and spoken for.

    A 25 minute headlining set? Weird. I hope there were a number of opening acts! HAHAHAHA

    Anyhow, your writeup is intriguing, so I’ll give it a shot.
