Music: Thee Silver Mt. Zion

Since entering pop culture over three decades ago, Punk has become a muddled word with a small army of variations and sub-categories following in its wake. While the notion’s nucleus still refers to Rock with blitzing guitars and incendiary leanings, it’s astounding to consider that the Misfits, Simple Plan, Blondie and The Casualties have all, at one point or another, been associated with Punk despite some dramatic differences.

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (TSMZMO) now further complicates things.

The hallmarks of the outfit’s sound — slow-burn mini-orchestral epics, snatches of voice moving in unpredictable patterns, quirky poetic turns — conventionally hold little relation to Punk. Still, Efrim Menuck links his band to the genre by way of its DIY sensibility.

They play the Southgate House Tuesday. Get show details and read Reyan Ali's interview with the band here.
