Wimps

It’d be a bit of a stretch to call the Wimps a supergroup, but the members of this beguiling Seattle band have been around, doing time in some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest post-punk acts in the last decade. Rachel Ratner was in the Butts, Matt Nyce played in Meth Teeth, and Dave Ramm was a member of the Intelligence. The Wimps are stripped-down, fun, loud, and they sing serious songs about things you can relate to — such as old guys in “Old Guy,” suitcases in “Suitcase,” and couches in their hit video for the song “Couches.” Show up early to this one, buy some merch, and have a great time, OK!
