Pterodactyl to Play the Picador July 25th

Image by Jesse JaneUpcoming on the area concert calendar is noise-rockers Pterodactyl who are touring in support of their first full-length release on Brah Records which is either self-titled or Blue Jay. Pterodactyl will be playing the 19-and-over show at the Picador in Iowa City on July 25th with openers The Tanks, Banana Hands, and The Slats. Doors are at 9PM.

Brah Records is the vanity label spinoff of Jagjaguar co-managed by members of Oneida and is also home to Oakley Hall who opened for Calexico when they played the Englert last September.

Pterodactyl’s new record is a buzzy, banging frenetic record with bouts of melody. Should make for an interesting evening.
