After making a splash at SXSW, Nashville guitar lords Diarrhea Planet returned to St. Louis at Off Broadway on March 26th, 2015 to spread the good word with local hunnies Bruiser Queen and Inifinity Cat labelmates Left & Right.

Diarrhea Planet are one of the more curious bands touring the United States at the moment. They’ve got a name that makes grandparents and A&R reps frown, their former drummer once tricked Twitter and journalists into thinking that they were opening up for Weezer, and they once wrote a catchy song titled “Ghost With A Boner.” Even weirder, Diarrhea Planet still host their website on Blogger, perhaps as a nod to simpler times. It all starts to sound like something you might find in heavy supply on Burger Records’ roster, but this Tennessean 6-piece have evolved into a very sincere tribute to the electric guitar and all its glory since their days at Glenn Danzig’s House.

The boys use their four guitarists (yes, four) well. Everyone gets a chance to riff, sherd, and wink at the crowd. It’s wild to see them go from a hard rock assault to something more textural and ambient, not unlike Japanese rockers Boris. However, there’s a bit more of a groove in those moments, which remind me of Natural Child, another Nashville act that came into public record around the same time as Diarrhea Planet. Compared to when I first photographed them in 2011, they’re a tighter band, and a better band. Though, I must say, even back then I was thoroughly impressed with what I saw.

So, as you can imagine, it was no large surprise that last night’s show was a good time.
