:Pop Evil has made Louisville a favorite stop since at least 2008, when they played a Phoenix Hill show; they repeated that stop nearly ten times, before playing the Louder Than Life Festival in September. Now they’re back, but at the Mercury Ballroom this time, on December 12. They’ve got a fan base and they’re still supporting their latest record, Onyx, which also lends its name to the tour – Oynx Set In Stone Tour, so expect a nice turn-out. Islander and Red Sun Rising are supporting the show. Tickets are $15.

Check out “Deal With The Devil” for a taste fo the new record:

A Frontier Ruckus At Zanzabar? No, Just Some Folk-Rock

 Club Show, Folk-rock, LMNEditor, Previews, Video  Comments Off on A Frontier Ruckus At Zanzabar? No, Just Some Folk-Rock
Dec 012014
 

Michigan folk-rock band Frontier Ruckus, joined by Firekid, makes a stop at Zanzabar on December 4. The band was called “the perfect recipe for Gothic Americana” by Rolling Stone after a performance at Bonnaroo in 2010, while Paste Magazine had them on the “Best of What’s Next” list, which does rather put a stress on a band to perform well in their subsequent records and live appearances. At this point, the band has toured Europe extensively, appeared on “Mountain Stage” and played Lollapalooza in 2013, among other successes. They are four albums into their career, with the last one, Sitcom Afterlife, released this year. Firekid is a singer-songwriter from Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Tickets to the show are only $8 adv. /$10 DoS.

Check out “Sad Modernity” from Frontier Ruckus:

The Werks Jam At Headliners

 Club Show, Jamband, LMNEditor, Previews, Video  Comments Off on The Werks Jam At Headliners
Nov 242014
 

Is there an unending appetite for jambands in Louisville? Promoters and club bookers seem to think so, as there is a pretty steady stream of said bands through town. For the Friday after Thanksgiving, you can headband it over to Headliners for an evening of genre-hopping improvization from Dayton’s own The Werks, which is all-you-can-dance, musical cafe style. Now, back in the olden days (the Aughts), bands were measured in part by the chart action of their records. The Werks big claim to fame is that in 2011, they were the number 2 top searched aritsts on Jam Magazine, behind only Phish. In 2012, they were Number 1. Well, take your plaudits where you may. They have a couple of new records: The Mr. Smalls Sessions, released in September and Dark Side OF The Moon, a co-performance with Dopapod and Papdosio. They have all the right markers, see? Getzy and Derek LaFountain open. Tickets are $12 Adv/$15 DoS.

Here’s a 9:44 jam on “Heading South”:

Free Show: Purling Hiss, State Champion at the New Vintage Thanksgiving Night

 Club Show, LMNEditor, Post-Punk, Previews, Video  Comments Off on Free Show: Purling Hiss, State Champion at the New Vintage Thanksgiving Night
Nov 242014
 

The name is Purling Hiss, the meaning – who knows? Its’s a Philadelphia outfit assembled by Mike Polizze (Birds of Maya) and now a touring group. The Other Side Of Life is promoting this show and they have a distinct, if overblown, description which might help: “Purling Hiss became a full-fledged touring unit in 2010, revealing themselves to not only be purveyors of Rallizes Denudes/Vermonster-style guitar jams, but to have a serious 90’s grunge/pop ethic not too far removed from bits of Bleach-era Nirvana.” PH also has a new record, Weirdon, on Drag City. Louisville’s State Champion is also on the bill, promoting their second Sophomore Lounge release, Deep Sh*t. The whole shebang-bang-band goes down at the New Vintage on Thanksgiving Night, November 27. You can get your turkey-stuffed body in for some kind of calorie-burning movement for FREE! What’s not to like? Well, some folks might not like the music but we’re not talking to them. Move it on down.

Here’s “Mercujry Retrograde”:

Ultra Pulverize Rescores Robocop

 Club Show, Electronica, LMNEditor, Movies, Previews, Video  Comments Off on Ultra Pulverize Rescores Robocop
Nov 222014
 

Louisville’s synth-punk sci-fi rap trio Ultra Pulverize will recreate the entire soundtrack from the 1987 film, Robocop, at Headliners Music Hall on Wednesday, November 26; It will be a LIVE, full-length, electronic re-score, complete with with dialogue and sound effect samples from the film, and, as a statement against talking during movies, they will not be rapping. The reason for the tribute is simple – the band members were strongly effected by the film, which might have something to do with why they are referred to as ” A musical outfit with outfits” – they dress in costumes for their shows. Night Visions DJ will perform after the tribute.Tickets are only $10.

Here’s a video from Ultra Pulverize, but not abot Robocop:
