GGOOLLDD returns to New Orleans with some kick-ass friends. $7/21+/9pm Doors/10pm Music
GGOOLLDD isn’t like other bands. They formed on whim, decided to play their first show mostly as an excuse to host a killer party, and they eschew the traditional gotta-get-a-record-deal game in favor of playing a lot of shows and releasing their own material. That sense of whimsy blended with resolute autonomy is all part of the signature GGOOLLDD aesthetic. And it feeds into their sound, especially lately. “Secrets,” their new single, is a soaring banger that conjures wind-in-your-hair glittery romanticism. Co-produced and mixed by Ben H. Allen (MIA, Animal Collective) it reflects that core tension in GGOOLLDD between winging it and great artistry. “I’m not going to lie, I’m great at writing a hook,” Butler says, and is quick to point out that her bandmates are “amazing,” musicians. “But if you ask me what I do, I’m going to tell you that I’m a performer before I tell you that I’m a musician.” She pauses and cracks up. “Unless you don’t know me at all,” she continues. “Then I’m going to say I’m a musician, because if I say I’m a performer, you’re going to automatically think that I’m a stripper, which is totally ok too but not my current profession.”
Listen to their new single "Success" here! https://open.spotify.com/track/32R4z8wW2ArfzVAsNIvlUO?si=2_4e42vRSuGUvlvQ48kuMA

Since 2011, Black Sabbitch have been selling out shows and wowing even the most difficult to please Sabbath worshipers, gaining a rabid fan base and the respect of critics, fans and musicians alike. They were hand-picked by Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne to open the inaugural Ozzfiesta and by Dave Grohl to play Cal Jam with Foo Fighters and Iggy Pop, after which the FooFighters shared photos of Black Sabbitch saying "we were spellbound.” Nick Zinner of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs chose Black Sabbitch to headline his curated festival Bedrocktoberfest and legendary street artist Shepard Fairey had Black Sabbitch open his Black Sabbath retrospective, Never Say Die. Electroclash superstar Peaches recently sat in as lead vocalist with Black Sabbitch for a special two night run in Los Angeles. The LA Weekly recently said of Black Sabbitch. "Finally Black Sabbitch took the stage and pretty much melted everyone's faces. The all-female Black Sabbath... were not only talented — nailing every note of the legendary group's familiar repertoire — but were captivating to an almost distracting level. Looking up at them from the crowd (which had erupted into a mosh pit...) I couldn't help but wonder what these women's stories were. They emanated the effortless cool of rock and roll, but with about 10 extra ounces of sexy confidence.”
Black Sabbitch are Angie Scarpa / Drums, Melanie Makaiwi / Bass, Emily Burton / Guitar, Alice Austin / Vocals
“Those who seek the purest source of the one-of-a-kind Sabbath sound never walk away from a Sabbitch live show feeling like they settled for a dollar store version of the Birmingham four. Sabbitch offers an experience that even Ozzy and the boys couldn’t provide. After adding up Sabbitch’s raw musical talent, and their ability to play the songs Sabbath were forced to raise to the rafters...the only label you could possibly hang on Black Sabbitch would have to be “undeniable.” NEW TIMES
“Don’t call Black Sabbitch a tribute. They are the female version of Black Sabbath.They are a hard-rock band playing old-school Sabbath and they bring a new shine to old doom. Indeed, they rock the living hell out of Sabbath’s catalog.” San Diego Reader
“Cover bands, tribute bands and the rest, we don’t need most of ’em, but we do need Black Sabbitch.” OrganThing.com
“Believe me when I say they are bringing it. They do more than just cover Sabbath. It’s as if they are from a freaking alternate universe.” Alibi.com

Salon d’Whatever is a monthly pop up at the Upstairs of Santos. The first Tuesday of every month we become part bar/thrift store/art gallery. Each month we feature a local artist to show and sell their works while we spin vinyl, make drinks, sell threads, and celebrate the talent New Orleans has to offer.
Our launch pop up will feature the works of collage extraordinaire, Duane Dugas from 7pm until midnight.
"My collage work focuses on the states of mind required to navigate through life. I take the fear, horror, mystery and uncertainty of modern, human existence, and wrestle power from them. I create talismans, in an attempt to ward off the destructive elements of daily life. I take on the role of detective, in order to accept the unknown. I am fascinated by extreme absurdities, and view satire as a primary weapon of survival."

Bass Church (aka Church*) is the home for underground dance music and sound system culture in NOLA. Named one of the top 20 parties in America by DJ Mag, it is also New Orleans' original underground dubstep and bass music weekly and the longest running electronic dance music weekly in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region. Founded in 2010, Church* took place every Sunday night at the legendary Dragon's Den. In 2017, Church* hit the road for The Missionary Tour and the event took place in cities all around America including New York City, Detroit, Denver, Atlanta, St Louis and more.
After 8 years on Sundays, and after bringing back it's original namesake, Bass Church* now takes place every Saturday night at Santos Bar (1135 Decatur) in the French Quarter.
Bass Church* features a wide spectrum of underground electronic dance music including bass music, dubstep, grime, drum & bass, jungle, uk garage, juke/footwork, trap, glitch hop and everything in between. It focuses on the underground cutting-edge, innovative and forward-thinking side of dance music. With it's sister party KOMPRESSION, Bass Church* also features house & techno in the 2nd room under the name Konfession.
With its origins rooted in dubstep and UK soundsystem culture and its forward-thinking approach to showcasing both the history and the future in the evolution of dance music, Bass Church* regularly hosts special guests from all over the world, often legends, pioneers, innovators and champions of their respective genres and areas of dance music -- such as Digital Mystikz (Mala & Coki), LTJ Bukem, Loefah, Hatcha, Youngsta, Roni Size, Kode9, Goth-Trad, Truth, Joe Nice, Doc Scott, Ivy Lab, EPROM, Jimmy Edgar, Machinedrum, Om Unit, Scuba, DJ Shiftee, Stanton Warriors, the Dirtybird crew (Justin Martin, Christian Martin, J.Phlip, Worthy) and many many MANY more!
Aside from the international, national and regional guest artists, the underground sounds are provided every week by Bass Church* co-founder Unicorn Fukr, host MC Werd2Jah, and a rotating cast of resident DJs: Rekanize, Innerlign, Rus, Beverly Skillz, Carmine P. Filthy, Brother Electric, Herb Jr (aka C-Lab) and Jaek plus Konfession resident Herb Christopher (KOMPRESSION co-founder). Former residents include Mr Cool Bad Guy (Bass Church* co-founder), Boogie T., Shanook, Kidd Love, RMonic & Zander.
Join the NOLA underground dance music community every weekend in worshipping the low-end!
cleopatrick is a heavy alt-rock duo from the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario - yup, the ‘c’ is lowercase.
Best friends since kindergarten, frontman Luke Gruntz and drummer Ian Fraser have an enviable connection that translates into a powerfully unified expression of sound. With a bastardized bass amp and split signal, Gruntz simultaneously commands the range of bass and guitar topped with provocative blues grooves and take-down breakdowns.
In early 2016, the pair recorded their first EP 14 in its entirety in a single studio session and was later dubbed one of the most promising acts for 2017 by 94.9 The Rock’s “Generation Next” program.
Now piling all of the torment and rhetoric of chasing big dreams within the limits of a small town, cleopatrick’s brand new single “hometown” gives a tasteful hint of growth and raw revelation expressed in their upcoming sophomore EP the boys (Fall 2018).

Germain Bigou aka Moresounds is a French musician from Paris, France.
Having begun his career in the early 2000s, Bigou is now a recognised actor in the global drum & bass scene, a dance music genre with roots in England. After years of small independent releases, his first notable professional releases came via the UK label Cosmic Bridge in 2012 followed by the Astrophonica label, also UK-based. Since then he has received further recognition and support from noted drum & bass pioneer Doc Scott, who released Bigou's productions on his own label, J:Kenzo, and with remixes for US producer Machinedrum's Vapor City project on the Ninja Tune label. Recognising his progress, FACT Magazine included Bigou as a producer to watch in 2015.
Bigou's music has appeared regularly on UK radio stations including BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM, as well as various radio shows around the world. He has performed live, in a unique dub style rooted in Jamaican tradition, in various European cities, as well as China. He has appeared at noted festivals such as Sun & Bass (Italy), Fusion (Germany), and Telerama Dub (France).
"Moresounds is a proud student of Tubby, a man who found his artistic voice not only in the echoes of the Kingston pioneer's legacy but also the grooves of hip hop and the psychedelia of rave and dance music. Moresounds' music is that rare thing: a real synthesis of dub and dance music aesthetics, pulling from the enduring, mutating DNA strands of each to create something that's beyond a mere mixture of styles.
This intricate synthesis was first showcased to the world via releases on Seattle's Car Crash Set, the Snafu EP, and Om Unit's Cosmic Bridge label, the Control Breath EP. The latter has received worldwide praise and continued support from the likes of Low End Theory's D-Styles and legendary selector David Rodigan while also catching the attention Astrophonica boss Fracture. Soon enough a deal was sealed for Moresounds to follow Control Breath with a self-titled EP for the London label."
