Hey Ratsos we just found this review in Razorcake archive, and are very psyched!
RATS OF NEW YORK, THE “Droppin’ Out” b/w “Cannibal Cannibal”: 7”
These guys play a quick-paced old school style of punk rock that has a touch of power pop in it and it really blew me away. Both songs really have a tight grip on my turntable and don’t want to let go of it. This is the kind of stuff that gets in your head and sticks with you and makes you decide that you have a new favorite band.
Brooklyn’s THE ABOVE above schlep their British invasion inspired rock n’ roll across the Hudson to perform along with NYC punkers THE RATS, Jersey City rockers LOW DOSES, and an upstart band of rabble rousing garage rockers from North Jersey, FUHGAWEE HUNTING CLUB. 9pm, $5. THE CITIZEN 332 2nd Street, Jersey City, NJ

We’ve all been holding out for a lip-buster of a show this Summer and THIS IS IT… Double LaChance – Rats of NY’s lead stringbreaker Nate and his brother’s band from Orlando called Tight Genes UNDER ONE ROOF – ONE NIGHT ONLY at GOLD SOUNDS… VANDALIZER will launch us off with NWOHM-esque hooks that tease & rattle your metal tooth sockets, and NYC’s garag’n’est heap of sonic werewolfery THE ELECTRIC MESS will drive you home on a plutonium-powered stagecoach. RATS OF NEW YORK play 2nd, before TIGHT GENES (on tour from Orlando!)
Let’s celebrate LIFE tonight, and LIVE ACTION New York style, Friday, September 11th with a….
ROCK & ROLL ATTACK!!!
Booze, tacos, and rock n roll, not necessarily in that order, featuring 3 notable amazing bands that’ll make you feel that sweet rush in your veins and that fuzzy feeling in your tummy (’cause you wouldn’t want to feel the other way around) like there’s no tomorrow and there has never been a past, such as:
THE RATS of N.Y. – 9:00 pm
A staple in the New York punk scene, The Rats recently celebrated their 10th Ratsiversary together, and ready to unleash new rocking tunes from the bowel of this old town upon us all! https://www.facebook.com/ratsofnewyork?fref=ts
THE THRILL SERGEANTS – 10:00 pm
Hi-octane powerful three-piece from New York that will literally tear the roof of your ears down, in a good way! Exciting rock & roll like you don’t see ‘n’ ear much more these days! https://www.facebook.com/thethrillsergeants?fref=ts
TWIN GUNS – 11:00 pm
With a sound that’s like a mixture of 60’s garage and dark psych, never shy of their Crampsian roots, Twin Guns has been rewriting rock & roll history as they damn like it. Their voice is loud and clearly reverberated for dramatic effect. A force to be reckoned with! TONIGHT APPEARING AS A TWO-PIECE, like DOG created them! FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY (Exclusive engagement 2.0). https://www.facebook.com/TwinGunsNYC?ref=bookmarks
PRICE OF ADMISSION:
We think it’s going to be $6, or something like that. All 3 bands bring it…so bring it!
8:00 pm… First band on at 9:00 pm
It’s DON PEDRO, baby!
