WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Helmet “Born Annoying”

“i remember a night in Chicago when Helmet and Shellac were playing on the same night, i had to make a choice, I saw Dinosaur Jr. that night. Oops.” So reads the commentary for the Helmet video for “Born Annoying”. Fortunately, tonight, for Milwaukee-area Helmet fans, the only choice to make is whether or not to go out on a Tuesday night. Not quite as tough. The seminal 90’s ‘alt-metal’ band that was born on the tails of leader Page Hamilton’s involvement in Band of Susans, drew both metal, post-punk and hardcore fans together with a sound that evolved over the years to their latest, more polished Seeing Eye Dog. The band plays Cactus Club tonight as part of the club’s series of 15th anniversary shows, alongside SIVINI.
