It’s been almost five years since DEAD RIDER unleashed its brand of dark psychedelic funk. Since that first show in their hometown of Chicago, IL they have produced three LPs, toured the United States extensively, and played a handful of UK gigs including the ATP festival in 2011 and 2012. A few great players have been in and out of the group in that time. Todd Rittmann (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Andrea Faught (synth, trumpet, vocals), Matthew Espy (drums), and Thymme Jones (synth, trumpet, vocals) have been the current lineup for the last two years and have furthered the band’s reputation as a challenging and entertaining powerhouse. Their most recent album, Chills on Glass, was released this spring by Drag City.

Watch the video for DEAD RIDER‘s “Blank Screen” here:

TROPICAL TRASH have caused quite a stir with their two 7″ records, Fear of Suffering, and Think Back Kick a Beer, both on Sophomore Lounge. Still Single describes TROPICAL TRASH as an “Excellent combination of thrashing energy and solid ideas that break apart and recombine in novel, tuneful ways.” They’re just as thrilling live as on record, so don’t miss this opportunity to rock out with ‘em!

CROPPED OUT V LINEUP ANNOUNCED!

Much like Hubert Stencil in Thomas Pynchon’s classic debut V., we’ve been searching high-and-low for information. Information on a different V., not some obscure name or some Maltese spy plot.

With, as usual, The Other Side of Life’s PICKS-TO-CLICK in bold:

August 1st Trolley Hop – Early Amateur Films of Kentucky and Beyond with special musical guests, Friday, August 1st at DREAMLAND

Dreamland_Flyer_small_flat

The Other Side of Life, Dreamland, and The Filson Historical Society are proud to present:

AUGUST 1st TROLLEY HOP – EARLY AMATEUR FILMS OF KENTUCKY AND BEYOND

with special musical guests to be announced

Friday, August 1st
at DREAMLAND
810 E. Market Street (in the alley behind Decca Restaurant)
Film screening from 5 PM to 8 PM, live music to follow
The event is FREE and open to the public as part of the Republic Bank First Friday Trolley Hop.

Presented By
Heather Stone, Assistant Curator of Special Collections
Aaron Rosenblum, Assistant Curator of Special Collections

If you missed The Filson Historical Society’s packed June 13th screening of this rare, amateur film footage of Louisville, Indianapolis, and the region, here’s your chance to see it at Dreamland!

In 2013 The Filson, with support from the community through a Power2Give.org fundraising campaign, preserved three historic films from the Judge Arthur E. Hopkins Collection. Judge Hopkins (1881-1944) was a Louisville attorney, judge, alderman and member of the Board of Directors of The Filson with a passion for film and photography.

For the past year Filson archivists have worked to bring these historic Louisville films back to life.  Join us at this screening to see these rare scenes of downtown Louisville, Indianapolis, the Kentucky Derby, Bowman Field, Cherokee and Iroquois Parks, and more!

The films will be shown at Dreamland (810 E. Market St., behind Decca) on a loop throughout the event, with a Kentucky-themed soundtrack curated by Nathan Salsburg of the Alan Lomax Archives. Filson staff members will be on hand to provide historical information about the films. Refreshments will be available.

Recommended if you like: Boards of Canada, Skyscraper Stereo, Jalin Roze

TOUCH AC is an up-and-coming Louisville hip-hop artist who, when not creating and performing spoken word poetry and hip-hop music, “enjoys hot wings. “

Visiting Nurse Live

Comprised of electronic drums, keyboards, bass, and effected guitar, VISITING NURSE features long time collaborators Jon Hill, Mike Seymour, and Syd Bishop creating music that seems to somehow straddle the gap between the organic and inorganic, a cyborg pastiche of jazz influenced composition, and rigid structures. For fans of Boards of Canada, Clams Casino, and Biosphere.

Local electronic wanderer SHEDDING strikes up the modular synth and sparks fire for this unique evening of joyous sounds.

Listen to SHEDDING‘s 2013 release Who Can I Be Alone With? here: http://shedding.bandcamp.com/album/who-can-i-be-alone-with.

NEW BRAVADO returns to us from atop a golden star making golden showers of golden acid on our brown, dirty heads. Blueing and blacking, this band has appreciated further time travels, backpassing Sabbath and instead bounding into the heavy psych and power fuzz of the 60s, whence came Eden’s Children, Banshee, Lincoln Street Exit.” -American Gloam

KILLER MOON is a psychedelic journey of three friends throughout the best years and times of our lives, reflected within our music. We are chasing a high mountain one that will enrich our souls, and make us better people and musicians. Our journey is one of love, anger, pain, sweat, and blood. Psychedelic jam band with classic rock and doomy sludge undertones. Extended instrumentals paired with ambient vocals make KILLER MOON a must see for anyone looking to expand their mind and musical horizons.

MIMI VON SCHNITZL began on four-track by J.Glenn — a.k.a. Mimi Von — in the summer of 2005. The spring of 2011 brought new life on keyboards from Rory Hanka creating swaths of colour from a Hammond and Korg. Andy Matter soon rounded out the sound with his 21-fret bass guitar named Belmont. Floating through the stratosphere as a three-piece, playing the occasional live gig with friends setting in to fill out the sound, MVS began recording as a three piece at Kent O’Bryan’s Wax and Tape Recording Studio in the winter of 2012. The sessions yielded half of the tracks that would become the debut MVS album. Expert circuit bender/guitar pedal builder Jace Stone was invited to shred an electric guitar solo on “Jenkum Jam.” a song on “Head Cleaner: A Louisville Music Compilation” by Gubbey records in 2013, and he has been with the outfit ever since. Following a fine tuning of the songs at Rory’s digs in Clarksville, IN, MVS would return to Wax and Tape as a four piece in 2014 to flesh out its first album to completion.

Watch the video for MIMI VON SCHNITZL‘s “Mass of Matter” here:

TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN DAWN: Spiritual awakenings through low-frequency bombardment as well as transcendental mind expansion using electric four- and six-string techniques.

JUANITA is a long-standing Louisville tradition, much like the Oaks or Derby, but you don’t need to wear a seersucker suit or some fancy hat. Just about every Louisville musician of note of the past decade has played in JUANITA, active since 1992!

From Wikipedia: D.R.I. (or Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) is a crossover thrash band from the United States that formed in Houston, Texas in 1982. Since 1999, the band comprises founding members, vocalist Kurt Brecht and guitarist Spike Cassidy, as well as drummer Rob Rampy and bassist Harald Oimoen. D.R.I. never gained a mainstream audience, but the integration of their hardcore punk roots with thrash metal influences was a stylistic catalyst for their contemporaries -— most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, and Stormtroopers of Death — alongside whom they are considered pioneers of what would later be called “crossover thrash.”

BGIII_001_web(1)
BLACK GOD
is comprised of Rob Pennington (Endpoint, Minnow), Ryan Patterson (Coliseum, Blood Moon Rail), Nick Thieneman (Young Widows), and Ben Sears (Mountain Asleep, Xerxes).
