The Off White w/ The Psychiatric Metaphors

When: Wed., March 25 2015

Hailing from Philly via Long Beach, N.J., members of The Off White are at a loss for words when it comes to describing the band. “We’re lacking inspiration in this van,” says guitarist Sean Jones. “We’re stuck in traffic in Virginia, and Pat has been trying to pee in a bottle for the past 20 miles. That could be the bio, actually.” The Off White is a four-piece garage-psych rock outfit featuring Jones, along with bassist Mike Bongi, Patty Bones on drums, and guitarist Justin Jones. Formed in 2012, The Off White released a four-song seven-inch on Little Dickman Records last year and have an LP slated for an April 7 release. The 13-track collection Don’t Take Kindly was recorded in Sean’s bedroom. “It’s got its real punk moments, its psychedelic moments, and its country moments,” Jones says. “We even have a little softer one in there to keep it interesting. We are really proud — it’s like watching all of our children grow up into 13 little individuals.” As for the band name, Jones contends ‘The Off White’ distinguishes themselves from the masses. He says, “We kind of like to think we are our own race of people, because the white people from our town are really annoying.” —Kelly Rae Smith WEDNESDAY
