Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our fifth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, once again presented by Verity Credit Union.

Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. For the Halloween edition of our showcase, we’re including some fresh cuts from a couple of northwest music industry veterans that also happen to be barbers playing in a new band that needs to be on your radar, The Cutthroat Brothers.

About the band: 

Once upon a time, barbers doubled as surgeons, offering bloodletting and teeth-pulling as well as razor cuts. The Cutthroat Brothers may not literally induce bloodletting, but they certainly do figuratively on their independent self-titled full-length debut.

The duo of real-life barbers—Jason Cutthroat [vocals, guitar] and Donny Paycheck [drums]—carve up a bloody, ballsy and brash brand of rock ‘n’ roll that—not unlike their medieval counterparts—takes no prisoners. Donning blood-spattered white smocks, they’re as handy with a straight razor as they are with garage punk.

“The classic imagery of what a barber is correlates so well to the music,” says Donny.

“We keep it straightforward and as sharp as possible.”
“It’s a little creepy and weird,” Jason adds. “But it’s a lot of fun and ties into what we do every day.”

If you are in the market for some new kickass rock & roll without all the filler, you most definitely came to the right place on the right day!  The Cutthroat Brothers recently released an eight-song offering of filthy electric slide powered garage rock that should make it on to everyone’s “Top Albums of Northwest” lists for 2018. Check the album out HERE and let us know if you agree.
