New Old Sound

Broken Ribs. Two-headed guitar players. Shark attacks. What is it about the powerpop/punk outfit Pots ´n’ Pans that incites so much mayhem? They look like ordinary boys – regular showers, fun with skateboards -- but they ain’t. They’re beautifully twisted.

By taking vintage pop sounds (like lead singer Jason Budjinski’s Paul Weller-inspired vocals) and mashing ´em up with sweaty new beats and snarling harmonies, they create a final product so refreshing (and entertaining) that it’s sure to please Dadaists, mod-revivalists, street urchins, the hyperliterate set, gutter punks, dudes being dudes, hipsters, trust-fund girls, and rock ´n’ roll purists equally. That’s handy, since Pots ´n’ Pans plays at Dada (52 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach) tonight, and you never know who’s going to show up to have a side of rock ´n’ mod with their fondue. The show is free. Check out P&P online at
