The members of punchy, sugar-buzzing Rock trio Nude Beach went to high school together in the small Long Island village of Northport, N.Y., playing Punk Rock shows in one of their families’ basements — the seeds of their DIY approach.
They moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., and began playing shows constantly, working on projects with other artists and self-releasing a cassette of material. The band released its self-titled full-length debut in 2010 and then toured the U.S. in support, hooking fans with their intense, high-octane live show.
With its most recent full-length effort, 2012’s II, Nude Beach began scoring positive reviews from well-read outlets like Spin and Pitchfork.
This Sunday, Nude Beach teams up with the Japanese band Suspicious Beasts and Cincinnati’s own Tweens, their first show since a West Coast jaunt opening for The Breeders, for a show at MOTR.
8 p.m. Free. MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, motrpub.com.
