Wavves, King Tuff hit Chicago’s Park West
If you’re going to see Wavves at Park West Saturday, don’t you dare miss King Tuff. This is one of those shows where the opener excites me as much as the headliner. King Tuff is Kyle Thomas, a guy who has been rocking out for a number of years. (He used to be in the band Witch with J. Mascis.)
Last year, Sup Pop released King Tuff’s self-titled album and, this spring, Burger Records reissued one of the most fun, hook-laden albums I’ve heard all year, Was Dead.
