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

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.

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).

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND and GANGLY YOUTH, Monday, June 23rd at NACHBAR. FREE!

GYWIB

The Other Side of Life is proud to present:

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND (Portland, OR; on Mon Amie)

and

GANGLY YOUTH (Louisville, KY)

Monday, June 23rd
at NACHBAR
969 Charles Street (at the corner of Charles and Krieger)
9 PM, 21-and -over
FREE!

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND formed in Portland, Oregon in 2007. As a duo the band employed banjo’s, chord organs, fuzz guitars and other various instruments, making a glorious racket across the Western, Central, and Southern United States. This incited an 11 track album of lo-fi experimental folk tunes that they self-released in 2008. The band grew in numbers and influence, playing shows under various names with various members until settling down with a stable lineup and signing with the Mon Amie record label in 2010.

Watch WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND‘s video for “Helicoptor” here:

After a bit of a hiatus and some lineup changes and whatnot, GANGLY YOUTH of Louisville, Kentucky return! Their sound is a mix of jangly noise, fuzzy pop, and a no-perfection required style. One might be reminded of bands like Sonic Youth, The Pixies, or warped cassettes playing favorite pop songs.

Watch GANGLY YOUTH play “What’s Yr Weirdness” live here:

SpeedyOrtiz

From their start as a full band, SPEEDY ORTIZ found a warm reception in the Bay State’s rock underground, from Boston’s basements to Western Massachusetts’ experimental scene. In March 2012, the band recorded and self-released a two-song single (“Taylor Swift” / “Swim Fan”) with Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Hole) and Justin Pizzoferrato (Chelsea Light Moving, Dinosaur Jr.). Establishing both creative momentum and a fanbase earned through near-constant U.S. touring, they continued with the Sports EP, a loosely conceptual 10” released on Exploding In Sound that June. Their debut album Major Arcana, named Best New Music by Pitchfork, saw the evolution of SPEEDY ORTIZ from a lo-fi project into a wholly collaborative effort, marked by Darl Ferm’s thick bass lines, drummer Mike Falcone’s boisterous fills, and the counterbalance between guitarist Matt Robidoux’s anti-melodic playing and frontwoman Sadie Dupuis’s angular riffing. The end result is a band able to distill their influences and impulses into something at once dissonant and melodic. This show is their Louisville debut, coming on the heels of their appearance at the Bonaroo Festival.

CHRIS BROKAW is perhaps best known for his work as the drummer in Codeine and the guitarist in Come, who made several albums in the 1990′s for the labels Sub Pop and Matador that are considered landmarks in American independent rock music. Since 2001, Chris has focused primarily on his work as a solo artist, making numerous albums of vocal and instrumental music. This has ranged from full-on rock, to explorations of the 6-string and 12-string acoustic guitars, to the experimental and abstract. Throughout, Chris has maintained an active solo touring schedule in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, Australia and Russia. He has composed original music for the following films: “I Was Born, But” (Roddy Bogawa, 2004), “Road” (Leslie McCleave, 2005, which received the award for Best Original Score at the Brooklyn International Film Festival); “Sospira” (Lana Z. Caplan, 2011); “Taken By Storm” (Roddy Bogawa, 2011); and “Now, Forager” (Julia Halperin/Jason Cortlund, 2012). The latter two films screened in 2012 at MOMA in New York City. Chris has also performed and recorded as an accompanist to Thurston Moore, Evan Dando, Christina Rosenvinge, Jennifer O’Connor, Rhys Chatham, Steve Wynn, Alan Licht, GG Allin, and Johnny Depp. He has composed music for the Dagdha Dance Company (Limerick, Ireland) and Kino Dance (Boston); collaborated with playwright Rinde Eckert and director Robert Woodruff on the opera “Highway Ulysses” (2002, American Repertory Theater, Cambridge, Mass.); performed as one of 77 drummers in the Boredoms’ “77 Boadrum” in New York; and performed as one of 200 guitarists in Rhys Chatham’s “A Crimson Grail” at Lincoln Center, New York. His band Dirtmusic (with Chris Eckman and Hugo Race) performed at the Festival In The Desert, in Essakane, Mali, and collaborated with the Touareg band Tamikrest on an album recorded in Bamako, Mali.

As a special treat, CHRIS BROKAW will be accompanied for this performance by Louisville, Kentucky residents KEVIN COULTAS (Rodan, The Chris Brokaw Band on Incredible Love) and CARRIE NEUMAYER (Second Story Man, Julie of the Wolves, Early Age). The rarity and uniqueness of this performance cannot be overstated!

With sizzling bass that digs like a rusty spoon against a prison cell wall, dueling guitars, which shimmer like dragonflies skating over the community pool, honey-salted voicings, plucked from the highest branch of a tree in the last moment before a fall to the ground and a broken arm, and drums that pound faster and harder than a flock of kids chasing an ice cream truck, MURALS’ sound is distinct, tantalizing, and tasteful.
