by Deaf Wish


Lithium Zion is the fifth full-length album for Deaf Wish (and second for Sub Pop following 2015’s Pain), and while it’s a rare case that a group’s fifth album is their best, particularly any band operating under a “loud fast rules” ethos, Deaf Wish make a strong case as the exception.

The Home of Rock (and punk-metal-pop-indie-shoegaze-post-dole-synth-wave and miscellanea).

The roster of bands that have played the Tote is long and illustrious, spanning back to the early 80's.  Get down and have a look around, the Tote's history is on the walls, in the carpet, in the beergarden and on the stage.

Buzzy place with a Led Zeppelin mural and nightly live bands, plus a sleek wood-panelled courtyard.

$8 pints of Cavalier from open until 8pm every day!  It can get a little loud, but that's rock and roll right?
