Music: The Plastic Constellations
Heavy and heady, fierce and fun—the lads of TPC play infectious, keenly lyrical rock that blazes, squirms, and churns with rhythmic intensity, anthemic melodies, and urgent hooks. Together since Hopkins High, TPC has been compared to Fugazi, the Minutemen, Foo Fighters, Foghat . . . you name it. Their fist-pumping sound orbits bits of all rock: post-hardcore, indie, emo, math, everything rock. Their live shows prompted Slug of Atmosphere to state: “This city is not big enough to hold their energy.”
