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.

It’s safe to say that PETER BRÖTZMANN is one of the most revered jazz musicians alive today. A saxophonist as well as clarinetist, BRÖTZMANN has released over fifty albums as a bandleader, and has appeared on over one hundred albums total. His1968 recording Machine Gun is considered one of his many classics within the realms of free jazz and European free improvisation, but he certainly didn’t stop there. BRÖTZMANN has also recorded or performed with a gigantic roster of musicians as diverse as Han Bennink, Fred Van Hove, Derek Bailey, Frank Wright, Cecil Taylor, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, Conny Bauer, Joe McPhee, and his son, Caspar Brötzmann, a notable guitarist in his own right.

HAMID DRAKE is widely regarded as one of the best percussionists in jazz and improvised music. Incorporating Afro-Cuban, Indian, and African percussion instruments and influence, in addition to using the standard trap set, Drake has collaborated extensively with top free-jazz improvisers around the world, including trumpeter Don Cherry; pianist Herbie Hancock; saxophonists Pharoah Sanders, Fred Anderson, Archie Shepp and David Murray; and bassists Reggie Workman and William Parker.

A native of The Bronx, New York’s WILLIAM PARKER is certainly no slouch in the company of BRÖTZMANN and DRAKE. Indeed, the bassist began his career in the 1970s playing with Cecil Taylor, and released his first album as a leader, Through Acceptance of the Mystery Peace, all the way back in 1981. He has played with David S. Ware, Jimmy Lyons, Derek Bailey, John Zorn, Charles Gayle, Wayne Horvitz, Roscoe Mitchell, Matthew Shipp, and in the group Other Dimensions in Music. The main force behind New York’s Vision Festival, PARKER is also an avid poet and author.

It is an absolute pleasure and an honor to bring musicians of this caliber to DREAMLAND!

Additionally, DREAMLAND is screening the documentary SOLDIER OF THE ROAD: A PORTRAIT OF PETER BRÖTZMANN on Thursday, May 22nd at 7 and 9 PM. Each screening is $10, and tickets are available here:

7 PM Screening — http://www.ticketfly.com/event/573901-soldier-road-portrait-louisville/;

A Benefit for the Louisville Outskirts Festival with SCREAMING FEMALES, JULIE OF THE WOLVES, and THE DEBAUCHEES at THE NEW VINTAGE, Thursday, April 10th

The Louisville Outskirts Festival is proud to present:

SCREAMING FEMALES (New Brunswick, NJ; on Don Giovanni Records)

with

JULIE OF THE WOLVES (Louisville, KY; on Noise Pollution)

and

THE DEBAUCHEES (Louisville, KY; on sonaBlast!)

Thursday, April 10th
at THE NEW VINTAGE
2126 S. Preston
8 PM DOORS, ALL AGES!
21-and-over drinks with valid photo ID.
$10 entry
Advance tickets available here: http://www.ticketfly.com/event/509005-screaming-females-julie-louisville/.

SCREAMING FEMALES is a punk rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. They have released five full length albums. The band features Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals, Jarrett Dougherty on drums, and King Mike on bass. SCREAMING FEMALES got their start in New Brunswick’s basement show scene. The band has gone on to achieve success with a wider exposure, having been featured on NPR, and have played with bands such as Garbage, Throwing Muses, Dinosaur Jr., The Dead Weather, Arctic Monkeys, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, JEFF the Brotherhood, and many more. They will release a new live album this spring, and will tour the US with the Julie Ruin.

JULIE OF THE WOLVES is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Carrie Neumayer (Second Story ManEarly Age), Stephanie Gary (Venus Trap, The Frequent Sea), Salena Filichia (Madame Machine, Venus Trap) and Becca Lindsay (The Red Nails, Minnow). Those are only a partial listing of the bands these people have been in. This lineup has a lot of Louisville musical history running through it. The name of the band comes from the 1972 book by Jean Craighead George, in which the title character must face changes and dangerous challenges forced upon her from culture, the elements and humankind. “These are challenging tunes that do not shy from pushing and pulling simultaneously, a teaming between catchy melodies and a pounding aggression.” — American Gloam.

Listen to Julie of the Wolves‘ album Create/Destroy here:

THE DEBAUCHEES are seemingly old souls with a youthful sneer. At just 20, the three members of THE DEBAUCHEES have crafted a full-length that feels vintage and modern, classic and new. Their debut, Big Machines and Peculiar Beings, evokes the minimalist yet intricate post-punk approach of Wire, Talking Heads, and Young Marble Giants with distinct vocals that evoke an emotive Nico. And like many of their punk predecessors, this thunderous trio comes from a fine lineage of artists who formed a band before learning their instruments – to prodigious results. Vocalist Sydney Chadwick says “we all learned how to play in an unconventional way so our playing styles became personal and rule-defying.”  The Debauchees are Sydney Chadwick (vocals/guitar), Ashley Bowen (bass), and Cameron Lowe (drums).

The Louisville Outskirts Festival is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run weekend of musical performances, educational workshops, and community building. The festival seeks to encourage, support, inspire, and highlight the music made by women and female-identified members of Louisville’s independent music scene as well as showcase influential and inspiring musicians selected from other parts of the country and world. Proceeds from this event will help fund the Festival. For more information, including volunteering activities and festival news, visit www.louisvilleoutskirtsfestival.com.

DREAMLAND Set to Open Next Week!

roycereedtriolarge(1)

DREAMLAND, a new performing and visual arts space, is set to open at 810 East Market Street in Louisville, Kentucky with inaugural performances on Thursday, January 30th by the Jim Marlowe/Steve Good/Jackie Royce Reed Trio (their debut) and mAAs, two local music ensembles. Formerly known as the Dreamland Film Center, creative endeavors of all kinds will now be facilitated at DREAMLAND by TIM BARNES, Founder and Artistic Director of THE NEW MEDIA PROJECT.

Tucked in an alleyway off East Market Street, right behind Decca Restaurant, DREAMLAND is a 100-person capacity black-box theater with adjoining lounge and lobby space. It has been utilized for the past few years by the Louisville Film Society for screenings, concerts, lectures, and production offices. In a previous life, the DREAMLAND space was a chapel, as part of the Wayside Christian Mission.

THE NEW MEDIA PROJECT has been an ongoing multi-disciplinary, multi-media production emphasizing adventures in new music, visual forms, and architecture. Founded by Tim Barnes, THE NEW MEDIA PROJECT aims to expose Louisville audiences to the best of what the world’s art communities has to offer.

DREAMLAND’S Artistic Director TIM BARNES is an internationally-known percussionist, electronic musician, and recording producer/engineer who has played and recorded with Sonic Youth, Wilco, Body/Head, Jim O’Rourke, Silver Jews, Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex, The Tower Recordings, The For Carnation, and MV+EE, as well as being featured in countless multiple other settings, from jazz-influenced free-improvisation to full-on rock n’ roll. He also runs the newly-revived Quakebasket record label (best known for its mid-1990s archival releases of solo work by Angus MacLise, poet and original drummer for the Velvet Underground). Tim is no stranger to curating music events as he had a hand in guiding NYC’s acclaimed Issue Project Room in becoming a venue. A California native, Tim moved with his wife and their two children to Louisville, Kentucky in 2007 from his longtime musical base, New York City. As a relatively-new Louisvillian, BARNES is enthusiastic about reaching out to the entire community in developing DREAMLAND as a viable and vital part of our city.

Partnering with BARNES on this endeavor is JOEL HUNT as Business Manager/Publicist, a Louisville native and independent music promoter, best known for his one-man production team The Other Side of Life, as well as his music writing for LEO Weekly, Swingset magazine, and many others. Formerly a resident of New York City, HUNT has also served as a production manager for the Beggars Group of recording labels (which includes Matador Records, 4AD, XL Recordings, and others).

DREAMLAND is dedicated to presenting a vanguard of musicians, performing artists, and cinema from around the globe, as well as being a showcase for like-minded artists from right here in Louisville. Our city’s many and varied arts, music, and cultural groups are highly encouraged to consider DREAMLAND as a potential partner in performance and promotion, and we encourage all inquiries. With easy access to and from Downtown Louisville, DREAMLAND hopes to be the artistic and musical beat in the heart of Louisville’s East Market District, also known as NuLu.
