WEREWHEELS consists of two dark cosmic forces: Plastic Crimewave (Plastic Crimewave Syndicate) and Dawn Aquarius (Herbcraft). The new duo opens clogged passages in the mind using guitars, keys, treated voices, and machines, creating a unique transcendent wall of sci-fried sounds — inspired by gnarly biker and horror film soundtracks, bad trip krautrock, and psychedelic synthpunk.

2014-06-12 (Brandon Coleman Quartet) (5)jdallen

Former Louisvillian and guitarist/composer Brandon Coleman (www.brandoncoleman-music.com) has teamed up with the world-renowned tenor saxophonist JD Allen (winner of the 2011 Downbeat Rising Star award, amongst countless others) to form GAMMA.  A powerhouse quartet fleshed out by young Cincinnati jazz phenoms Peter Gemus (bass) and Tom Buckley (drums), GAMMA focuses on the original compositions of Allen and Coleman, which draw on equal parts of freedom and structure while remaining firmly rooted in the jazz realm.

Tonight’s event is inspired mainly by the “Company Week” events curated by British guitarist Derek Bailey, who died in 2005:

Throughout his life, Bailey railed against complacency; when regular mates became too familiar, offering the easy path of rote response, Bailey responded with Company, a semi-regular meeting of performers from differing musical backgrounds, most of whom had never encountered one another. A fragmentary list of Company participants extends well beyond Fred Frith and John Zorn to take in Lee Konitz, Ursula Oppens, Don Byron, Diamanda Galas and veteran tap dancer Will Gaines.

In that spirit, GAMMA will be joined by the Dreamland Improvisation Company, which at this performance will include: Ed Lutz, Jared Elmore, Cher Von, Shane Simms, Bret Berry, Keenan Lawler, Rachel Short, Jacob Gotlib, Jackie Royce, and Kyle McCoy.

The duo of CATHERINE ANN IRWIN and JONATHAN GLEN WOOD is sure to entertain, especially given each performer’s pedigree. As part of the long-running country duo Freakwater, Irwin needs no introduction, but let’s give her one anyway: CATHERINE ANN IRWIN has called Louisville, Kentucky home, or at least her home base, all her life. She began performing by playing guitar in punk bands “and not caring a bit about country music,” she says. Still, the seed for her band Freakwater was inside her: “Most of the country music I heard on radio, I hated. But I loved the Carter Family, the way they would approach songs about death and dying or being saved and rejoicing the same way. That kind of music seems to age better. I can’t see myself playing punk anymore, but this kind of music I can see playing the rest of my life” (Chicago Tribune). JONATHAN GLEN WOOD is no slouch either, being an integral member in local faves Old Baby and Jaye Jayle, a collaborator-in-demand-about-town, and a solo artist whose new album, Ballad of Jon, is essential listening. Hailing from the mountains of West Virginia with a heritage of hard luck miners and horse traders, JONATHAN GLEN WOOD’s solo music falls somewhere between the front porch and the barroom.

NEW MOTHER NATURE is filled with familiar faces. Members of NEW MOTHER NATURE are current or former members of Old Baby, The Phantom Family Halo, Natural Geographic, and many more. They quickly became one of our favorite Louisville bands, and we think you’ll like ‘em as well. Their sound “is rich with straight-forward melodies… all while maintaining a sense of playful, if cautious experimentation.” — Syd Bishop, LEO Weekly.

YOUNG WIDOWS, PC WORSHIP, Wednesday, September 17th

Cropped Out presents:

YOUNG WIDOWS (Louisville, KY; on Temporary Residence)

and

PC WORSHIP (New York, NY)

Wednesday, September 17th
at DREAMLAND
810 E. Market Street (in the alley behind Decca Restaurant)

Louisville’s creatively restless dark-rock auteurs YOUNG WIDOWS released their new full length Easy Pain in May via longtime label Temporary Residence, Ltd. Recorded with Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket) the new set is far and away the trio’s densest, most disturbingly addictive record yet. Easy Pain melds the strengths of their past and their tenacity for the future to forge an album perfectly befitting their merciless moniker; the lyrics and vocal delivery are more expressive and dynamic, the guitars are enormous, the drums are pummeling, and the trademark gut-churning bass is more jaw-dropping than ever.  In the three years since the widescreen atmospherics of 2011’s In and Out of Youth and Lightness, YOUNG WIDOWS set their sights on crafting a set of songs that brims with visceral ferocity. Disregarding all boundaries and pushing forward with a masterful command of post-punk, noise rock, pseudo industrial, experimental doom, and goth, YOUNG WIDOWS emit the intimidating force of a 10-piece with the heart and soul of a classic power trio.

PC WORSHIP kick it dense and heavy with a damaged crude DIY psych edge that often transcends into totally catchy melodic and repetitive jammers.”

The Louisville Outskirts Festival is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run weekend October 10-12, 2014 of musical performances, educational workshops, and community building. The festival seeks to encourage, support, inspire, and highlight the music made by women of Louisville’s independent music scene as well as showcase influential and inspiring musicians selected from other parts of the country and world. The Outskirts Festival aims to demonstrate that female musicians are complex and multifaceted artists. We have many different points of view to express, musical influences that have shaped us, and diverse experiences that we have lived. We hope that our festival will shatter stereotypes about what “women’s music” is.

Though the emphasis of the Festival is on music, we would be remiss to not recognize that many female musicians are also visual artists, and that visual art and music influence and co-habit each other in intriguing, and inspiring, ways. As a part of this year’s inaugural festival, a select handful of Louisvillian and Louisville-native artists who are also musicians have agreed to lend artwork – some for sale, some in private collections – for display for the run up to, during, and directly after the Louisville Outskirts Festival.

Suki Anderson is one-third of Louisville’s only experimental a capella trio, Sandpaper Dolls, as well as Art Director of Louisville Magazine.

Tara Key, a Louisville native, is a founding member of both Babylon Dance Band and Antietam, two of Kentucky’s earliest punk rock groups, as well as an avid photographer.

Yoko Molotov is the bassist/vocalist in Louisville’s Sweatermeat, which describes itself as “an avante-tard, experimental performance art garage band.”

Carrie Neumayer is a Louisville, Kentucky based artist, musician, and educator. Carrie works in a wide variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, and collage.

Influenced by folk aesthetics and the history of her surroundings, Cynthia Norton’s work employs music, video, mixed media, and performance as her country-music alter ego NINNIE, in a manner that combines feminist thought with local and vernacular imagery inspired by the cultural traditions of the rural South, specifically of her native Kentucky.

Much like Tara Key, Tari O’Bannon was one of the initial, and key, players in Louisville’s upstart punk rock scene, which began in the late 1970s and was centered on the long-gone 1069 Bardstown Road apartment building (of which O’Bannon was a resident). A lifelong artist and musician, O’Bannon currently contributes vocals to Juanita, The Ritchie White Orchestra, and the recently-resurrected Grayson Hall.

Lady Pyramid are one of Louisville’s most exciting new bands, and are represented in the show by Anna Roeder and Katy Hartman.

Amber Estes Thieneman is a Louisville photographer and member of Sandpaper Dolls.

This event also includes a FREE screening of the cult classic film Ladies and Gentlemen The Fabulous Stains at 8 PM.

From IMDB:

Corrine Burns retreats far into plans for her band, The Fabulous Stains, after her mother’s death. So far that she gets them (she and two cousins) on a tour with a washed-out glam-rock group and a rising British punk band, radically changes her appearance, attracts a cult following and national media attention. With luck like this, what could go wrong?
