Swearin’ is a band from Brooklyn that plays a fuckin’ kickass brand of hook-centric punk rock. Their last record, which was self-titled, is pretty fuckin’ good. Even Pitchfork thought so, praising its “unshakeable hooks,” comparing the band to fuckin’ Jawbreaker and the Promise Ring, and scoring the record a 7.8 — which we’re pretty fuckin’ sure is a good thing, even though we find grading music on a point scale to be pretty fuckin’ stupid. But, hey, what the fuck, right? Swearin’ play the Monkey House in Winooski on Tuesday, March 11.
