The trio known as the Ar-Kaics take old-school '60s garage rock and give it a swift kick in the pants on this upbeat, short and simple rocker released on Bandcamp in February. "'I Don't Need Your Love" is a schoolyard sing-a-long. It's about the dark parts of your mind when you need to break up with someone," drummer Patty Conway says. "It is short and sweet and a little bit mean, like most relationships." The band, which also features Johnny Ward on guitar and vocals and Kevin Logendyke on guitar and vocals, is releasing a 13-song cassette this month. There are also a couple of 45s in the pipeline for the summer. The group performs a big show May 18 with Titus Andronicus and the So So Glos at Strange Matter. - Brent Baldwin

      It can take a lot more than gigging to make a living in music. For one member of No BS Brass, the answer is in schools - lots of them.
