Whole Wheat Bread 

Tuesday, January 24; Creepy Crawl (412 North Tucker Boulevard)

They may be accused of dressing like NWA, but brazen, dirty-South punk-rockers Whole Wheat Bread — guitarist-vocalist Aaron Abraham and brothers Nicholas (vocals/bass) and Joseph Largen (drums) — are more likely to geek out on Bad Brains, Rancid, Dropkick Murphys and Green Day. The Jacksonville, Florida, trio's Fighting Records debut, Minority Rules, was produced by Darian Rundall (Yellowcard, Pennywise) and features eleven rapid-fire beatdowns that address a host of social ills and drive with the force of a thousand labret studs. And as for their live shows, they've, uh, been known to get a little crazy from time to time, to put it delicately. But moshing purists, beware: The 'Bread have been known to sneak a few hip-hop tracks into their rousing mix.
