Drop-Off Productions Presents: Big Business w/ Special Guests Live!

Drop-Off Productions presents Los Angeles-based “loud-and-proud” duo, Big Business. After decades of playing in professional bands and as current members of “Gods of Sludge” The Melvins, the two piece band composed of Jared Warren of Karp and The Tight Bros From Way Back When, and Coady Willis of Murder City Devils are nothing short of intense. Too eccentric and playful to be accepted as metal but too loaded and loud to be taken as most anything else, Big Business remain a band without comfortable genre quarters – as indebted to power pop and psychedelic rock as they are to sludge or stoner metal. That, however, is simply the foundation on which Big Business build their strange, singular, and steadily evolving catalogue. Their sound has been characterized as a bombastic and frantic low end attack, marked by Warren’s signature vocal delivery. The music has always been heavy, what with Warren’s burly tone, Willis’ busy drumming, and surly harmonies that, at times, suggest a peculiar folk-rock band on an unexpected hair-metal kick. ‘Command Your Weather’, the latest full length from the band out via Joyful Noise Recordings, is perhaps the band’s darkest recording to date featuring a recurring theme throughout – It’s a haunting dream about the struggle for dominance of will over the power and unpredictability of nature. Or it’s just a really great rock record – it depends on how weird you’re willing to get. But you’ve never had so much fun being crushed in the cogs of the universe’s great machine, that much is for sure! I mean, there’s no law against having a couple cold beers while we all burn in the fire of time, am I right?! Additional support to be announced. This is a 21+ show at the world famous Surfside 7, Friday, August 31 – Tickets will be available online at, the ticketing link above and the bar.
