((Be Your Own PET)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Be Your Own PET are riding the serious hype train right now. These four Nashville kids are like 16 or something and when they aren't rocking a room full of hipster fans, or signing to Rough Trade, they're probably still stressing about pimples and the cafeteria's meat patties.

Vocalist Jemina Pearl has been compared to a young (really young) Karen O, and she snarls, growls, and kicks to these distorted 2-minute punk rock tracks in a way that would make Momma Yeah Yeah Yeah proud. Pearl's lyrics are angry, the furious drumming tempos are so precise it's sick, and the crunchy guitars are fuzzed-out and blasted to 11. These guys are the best high school band ever... except for The Pinheads... they were darn loud too.
