PSDSP at Peri's, by William Wayland

What do you say about a band called Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP)? Are they goofball punks or morbid goths?

They’re neither, really. This is a confident band that starts with grunge and layers in jazz, funk, and hardcore. Maybe a few other things.

At 1:18am when the Peri’s crowd starts chanting “Don’t Stop!” PSDSP turns it into a funky jam and keeps going.

It’s appropriate that PSDSP teamed up with Modern Monsters for this show, the first time these bands shared the same bill. Modern Monsters is another band that’s hard to put in a box. Their eclectic mix of grungy, psychedelic, experimental rock lit up Peri’s Silver Dollar and left everyone wanting more.
