"West Coast screamers Frankie and the Witch Fingers trade on a tradition built up from the very fabric of psychedelic soul. Shot through with the same melted juke jitters that sent Doug Sahm, The 13th Floor Elevators and The Pretty Things scratching through the record needles of every child indebted to the vibrational cathedral, the L.A. crew comes barreling into 2017 with their own brand of heatstroke mojo. The band’s latest, Brain Telephone, is an acid bath for the soul delivered in pulsating waves via fuzz guitar. It’s an electric jolt to the endocrine system, shaking the last dregs of reluctance out of your system and inducing bouts of dance euphoria.  

The band, C. Dylan Sizemore (vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter), Glenn Brigman (drums, organ), Alex Bulli (bass), and Josh Menashe (lead guitar and backing vocals), has spent the past few years crawling around the heat-swamped corners of L.A.’s sweatbox circuit, honing the gospel across 2013’s Sidewalk, 2015’s eponymous album, and pumping straight motor oil through the veins of last year’s neon meltdown, Heavy Roller. They took the circus on the road, pounding every last inch of varnish from their weary husks from the heartland to the Bay. They’re thrumming on a new vibration that’s found it’s way to them on a light beam ripped into their deepest subconscious. They’re hooked up to the Brain Telephone that’s opened through the switchboard in their soul and they’re dropping you the digits to dial in.

They’ve tapped into something primal and it’s beating quick and frothy in the veins, combining the levitation-laced vibrations of Spacemen 3 with a scarred guitar growl straight out of the Motor City’s storied rock lineage. Brain Telephone is bent through the prism of shake n’ shimmy ­– a sweat-drenched dance party that’s equal parts Northern Soul all-nighter, Monterey Pop implosion, and modern warehouse wall-dripper all in one. That’s not to say they don’t know how to get tender, though. For all their eight-piston pummel, they can bring it down to a spine-tingling simmer when the time comes. At its heart, Brain Telephone is Frankie and The Witch Fingers at their most visceral – primed, polished, and funneling the fragrant heat of rock through your cranked speakers."

DARCY MALONE//SOUTH JONES

Darcy Malone & The Tangle began when the daughter of Dave Malone of The Radiators fame met skateboarder/guitar player Christopher Boye. The husband/wife duo wanted to create music that incorporated Darcy’s background of Soul and Pop with Chris’ love of Indie/Underground Rock n Roll. After adding band members Craig Toomey (vocals, bass),  James Beaumont (Saxophone, Keyboards), Billy Schell (Drums), and Rory Callais (Lead Guitar),  the two musicians got the exact fresh sound they were looking for. Incorporating a “Tangle” of genres, the band go from the Funky catchy grooves of their hit “Be A Man” to the Dynamic Rock n Roll hooks of songs like “Still Life”. Great songs combined with an intensely fun live performance make this band for everyone.

ABRAMS//TBA

"Expertly constructed... There are hints of AmRep-era noise rock a la Unsane, as well as sludgy riffs you might have heard cranking out of Josh Homme's amp back in his Kyuss days – and there's even a strange sense of kinetic propulsion mastered by fellow Denver residents Plane Mistaken for Stars... Lust. Love. Loss. is worth your attention."
–Substream

"Lust. Love. Loss. is a nimble crusher, managing to steamroll and get down with its bad semi-melodic self all at the same time... You will likely be reminded of Baroness, Mastodon and occasionally Neurosis, but only ever in a good way."
–Decibel

"Post-hardcore, filtered through big Melvins-esque guitar rigs... Abrams find the sweet spot on their independent debut, Lust. Love. Loss., about midway between Hot Snakes and Blood Mountain-era Mastodon, and toss in some great lyrics as well."
–Invisible Oranges

"The trio's self-released debut portends big, big things for the band. Effortlessly meshing angular mathcore with chunky stoner metal, Lust. Love. Loss. recalls Remission-era Mastodon..."
–MetalSucks

"Denver trio Abrams make their full-length debut... with an obvious focus on flow, complexity of songwriting, crisp execution, tight performances and an overarching sense of heft that is more than ably wielded... The three-piece seem to take their cues from the post-Baroness school of progressive heavy rock, bringing the occasional flourish of post-rock..."
–The Obelisk

"Similar, stylistically, to Remission-era Mastodon: polyrhthmic bluesy grooves hammer away as washed-out leads dance and skip around jazz-influenced drum fills. The combination fulfills a niche that hasn't seen a true successor since the aforementioned 2002 masterpiece."
–Heavy Blog Is Heavy

The synergy of melody, groove, and bullet-train force displayed on Lust. Love. Loss. sets Abrams in line with heavy transcenders like Mastodon and Pelican. Drummer Michael Amster pushes forward with crisp, ghost-noted beats that nod to Dailor at his best; twin brother Zach Amster scrapes shimmering melodies and massive crunch out of his axe; Taylor Iversen's basslines roll along like boulders down mountainsides.

When asked about their influences, the guys name-check heroes of post-hardcore like Fugazi and At the Drive-In. Indeed, Abrams' sound could be perceived as a turbo-boosted, sludged-up incarnation of those bands' spirits – driving and impassioned, traversing the spectrum of feeling, from mournful to triumphant.

PRIMITIVE MAN
Nov
15
8:00 PM20:00

PRIMITIVE MAN

Denver’s PRIMITIVE MAN’s music matches its name: a savage, sparse mix of death metal, blackened noise, and doom riffs. The threepiece was formed in February of 2012 by Ethan Lee McCarthy, Jonathan Campos, and Bennet Kennedy (all current and former members of Vermin Womb, Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher). In October of 2012 the band recorded their debut LP Scorn at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cobalt, Catheter, CTTTOAFF). Scorn was released a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records. After the release of Scorn, the band parted ways with Kennedy and recruited Isidro "Spy" Soto to temporarily take over on drums for a number of tours/releases before settling on a permanent replacement in drummer Joe Linden in 2015. The band also self-released a three-song EP in February titled P/M.


The unique metal hybridization of Scorn caught the attention of Relapse, who liked the record enough to sign the band and reissue the full-length in summer 2013. Dubbed a "totally malignant sounding record and one that will consume you whole if you’re not careful,” by Cvlt Nation and called “the best worst thing that has ever happened to you,” in an 8/10 review from Metal Hammer, Scorn found PRIMITIVE MAN celebrating a slow-roasted apocalypse through seven suffocating hymns of hatred, disease and sonic deviance. The record put the band on the map for many listeners, and enabled PRIMITIVE MAN to embark on a relentless touring schedule that would soon see the band playing live shows across the US and Europe (often for the vast majority of the year) in company with acts such as Magrudergrind, Weekend Nachos, Hexis, Reproacher, Fister, Celeste, Opium Lord, and Northless. PRIMITIVE MAN also played Denver Black Sky in 2013 alongside Relapse brethren Dying Fetus, Exhumed, Skinless, Iron Reagan, Mammoth grinder, Call of the Void, and Weekend Nachos.


All of Ethan McCarthy’s projects have been prolific, and PRIMITIVE MAN is no exception – the band released four splits between 2013 and 2015, and dropped another bombshell of nihility in 2015 with its Relapse EP Home Is Where The Hatred Is. The EP was well-received by publications including Metal Injection, MetalSucks, Revolver, and Exclaim!, the latter of who stated, “unapologetically bleak and permeated by loathing and hostility, Home Is Where The Hatred Is will either leave you wanting more or contemplating teetering off a ledge.” Despite their primeval, bludgeoning approach, PRIMITIVE MAN wouldn’t exist without their savage awareness of modern humanity: simultaneously old and new, atavistic and groundbreaking, PRIMITIVE MAN stands to redefine current conceptions of hope, faith, and metal music.

Simply Saucer // HEAVY LIDS // The Luxurious Faux Furs

Saucer was - and still IS - Canada's foremost psychedelic/proto-punk (whatever THAT means) unit was responsible for creating some of the most intense, out-there musical moments inthe mid-to late '70's. 

Saucer combined Detroit street rock grit w/Velvet Underground -inspiration, mixed it with Kraut-rock and early electronic experimentation and came up with something original. "Cyborgs Revisited" , a compilation of demos and live material was originally released in 1989 on a piece of pressed petroleum-by-product, was re-issued in 2003 on CD by Sonic Unyon, and has garnered great gobs of press. See the influences column for a sample. 

Half Human, Half Live is the group's first new set of recordings in nearly 30 years. Both the Human (i.e studio) and Live sides were produced by the band @ Catharine North Studios, with guitarist Stephen Foster overseeing the technical end of things. 

The live sides were recorded on June 23rd, 2007, in front of a live, partisan audience. The studio sessions capture the full range of the band's musical parameters, from the Kinks-ian pop-rock of Almost Ready Betty to the spacey, progressive-rock opus Clearly Invisible to the pastoral, Syd Barret-esque (RIP) Dandelion Kingdom. 

Edgar continues his parallel career as an acoustic solo artist.

The Iceman Special
New Orleans, LA
Two jamming brothers, a guitarist with 50 years of wisdom, a cinematographer raised on the drums, add in a touch of bongos: this is the recipe for the perfect blend of midnight swamp funk. The Iceman Special was formed in New Orleans during the summer of '15 by Hunter Romero (Drums) and the Murry brothers, Will (Front Man) and Charlie (Bass). Before the quintet was solidified, the group began playing shows around Louisiana, eventually adding Steve Staples (Lead Guitar) and Bongo Mike to the line up, thus the Iceman was born. All five band members bring southern Louisiana to every stage; while balancing a commitment to the creation of unique music and to the audience's enjoyment. With these components in place, every minute of their set produces an electrifying euphoria so powerful that even sheepish crowds are howling like wolves by the end of the first jam. The Iceman Special is all about the "right now"; living in the moment because life moves too fast to play slow.

Captains of the Head

Captains of the Head

Captains of the Head hail from the great State of Michigan and the seaport of Detroit. They sing rough songs about rough men, rough seas, and loose women. Using acoustic instruments, in the maritime folk tradition, they pay tribute to other x-rated singers such as Salty Dick, Oscar Brand, John Valby, G.G. Allin, and Anne Murray. After finding common ground in this tradition of musical filth, the members of COTH (Gar Density, Rod Chesterhills, and Don River) each took it upon themselves to promote each other to the rank of Captain without having any authority to do so. They then set out on a voyage to keep the sea shanty tradition alive & well by rescuing forgotten songs and writing new ones to fit these modern times. They currently aren’t very hard at work on their first album and play shows when asked. The band includes current and former members of such non-ocean related bands as Electric Six, Golden Torso, Snakeout, Wolfbait, Salt Miners, and Pub Life.

Full Disclosure: None of the members have ever owned or commanded a boat, though they did attend boating safety classes in the 6th grade because that’s what happens in Michigan.

ZEKE + ANTISEEN

https://www.facebook.com/ZekeBand/

ZEKE sound like the DWARVES if they snorted a tub of meth every day - LA WEEKLY chainsaw punk rock played with a MC5 / MOTORHEAD attitude - VILLAGE VOICE I can say without hyperbole that this big-guitar engine-block rock is a million times better than whatever it is you're currently listening to. - GUITAR WORLD Ride With Zeke has quickly become the mantra for music fans who have accepted the invitation brought by on Heckler Magazine when they said, Welcome the new monsters of rock. And believe me, West Coast punk / thrashers ZEKE are monsters. Ever since their very first gig at the Rock City in Seattle in 1993, people have had no choice but to pay attention. Their records will assault you, and their live show will batter you.

https://www.facebook.com/ANTiSEEN-82559392576/

Long before it was fashionable, somewhere in the red clay rolling hills of rural North Carolina where time stands still and mass media culture merely flys over, a young Jeff Clayton was stewing up a mash of crazed ideas inspired by late night horror flicks, Saturday morning wrestling and the scratchy old records of Alice Cooper and Black Oak Arkansas.
It was a potent and hazardous mix that, when given the blasting cap of punk rock, ignited one of the most infamous and iconic bands in rock & roll; ANTiSEEN. 

Now, over thirty years later, Clayton still leads the charge - a bloodstained barnstorm of southern fried punk rock fury. Times and taste may change, but ANTiSEEN does not; diesle-fume piss and vinegar - and damn all the rest. What was once topical has long since become dated... But not ANTiSEEN.

The toxic DNA bleeds thru the muddy roots. The genre defying influence and heritage no longer can be denied. One needs not look very far to recognize it.
The spirit is eternal, the reality exceeds the myth...

The legends continues...

YAWNING MAN // WE ARE THE ASTEROID

 

WWW.YAWNINGMAN.COM

https://www.facebook.com/yawningmanofficial/

Brothers’n’sisters, this wailing desert trio is truly the shit, and has been aiding my most recumbent and stonedest late night thunks since it first landed two years ago. Throughout the landscape music of Yawning Man, the post-Ventures, post-Shadows guitar melodies are constantly being undermined, up-ended and sent deep into a dark Joy Division territory, by weird chords and bass channels that create the kind of brooding and thunderous atmosphere that gives even the most easy-going a real fear of flying."

Four of five band members attended the State University of New York at Purchase.

LEVITATION ROOM $5

Their Decidedly hallucinogenic jams whisper and hum the same gentle refrains of their summer of love influences, conjuring up the cognitive imagery of sunny days at the park, spent with friends in a euphoric haze along with lyrics ad sonic mediations on life, love and self-awareness.





It just happened. Kind of like how humans crawled out of the slime and came into existence.

The Queers // TBA $15 [$12 adv.]

The Queers

We've been playing music and touring all over the world for almost 30 years now. We released a few records for Lookout! Records in the early 90s and then had a terrible stint with Hopeless in the late 90s. I don't think they wanna see us and we definitely don't wanna see them. Then we released one more record with Lookout! but afterwards switched to our favorite record label we've ever had, Asian Man Records. All this while touring a bunch. We'll see you soon, we're The Queers.

The Green Demons exist in New Orleans which is no easy task. They will rip your face off and snuggle with your inner most secrets because while being monstrous demons that protect the inner sanctum of forever love they are also half humans who are like you accept that they are insanely beautiful. Their music sounds like what you always wish you were listening to. Tempt fate and turn it up now

SOUND OF CERES//BREATHERS//TBA

Fire rises out of the lunar mountains; new Ceres in sound when I carry Karen Hover, Ryan Hover, Jacob Graham, Ben Phelan, and Derrick Bozich up to a peak and lay them down on the edge of a synthesizer.

An audio / visual experience with sounds ranging from 1960's exotica to majestic, synthesizer adorned, future horizons. Visual depictions of the greater cosmos utilizing lasers, fiber optics and other hand made mechanisms. Feat. members of Candy Claws, Apples in Stereo, and the Drums.
