ABOVE THE DIN means: “transcend the noise.” Hear them do just that— live! Boston’s must-see trio presents an afternoon of free rock and barbecue. Fresh off a win at SPH Band Contest, they are bringing you a mix of heyday grunge and doom-laden blues. For pre-Porchfest shenanigans, hit up their socials:



Then come say hi and grab a bite at the porch of Tim Mercier (guitar, vocals), Dan Racowsky (drums) and Allan Kleln de Carvalho (bass).

Hot hot hot! The handle is hot! Get an oven mitt because this frying pan is sputtering with scalding hot riffs that taste a lot like Thin Lizzy and Pantera but have notes of GnR, Queen, and Maiden. The whole concoction smells strongly of early Van Halen and has a lightly progressive aftertaste while never sullying the taste buds with pretension. It tastes even better as leftovers.
