Back in April, Stranger contributor Sean Jewell exclaimed, “finally, a band from Bremerton that doesn’t suck,” as he praised peninsula-based garage-rock trio Dear Darkness. While I may not be as gung ho to call them the best Kitsap band ever (that title goes to Claymore), I certainly see a solid future for them on this side of the water, much of it will surely be filled with sweat-drenched sing-alongs in sold-out bars. Show up early for local upstarts Blood Drugs, a band whose (future) releases you could easily file alongside Fugazi, Jawbox, and even Jawbreaker. KEVIN DIERS
