Back in 2010 the three members of Portland's Hurry Up decided to start a band. Five years later they released their first record, and a year after that they went on their first East Coast tour. (I will remind you that the band is called Hurry Up.) In their defense, band members Kathy Foster and Westin Glass have been busy with their other band, The Thermals, and third member Maggie Vail (ex-Bangs) is an Executive Director at pro-musician non-profit CASH Music. The wait has been worth it: 2015's self-titled album is packed with catchy punk tunes that sometimes sound like a distant echo of fellow Portlanders Dead Moon, rooted in the trio's initial idea of starting a hardcore band.
