STATE CHAMPION (from Louisville/Southern Indiana/Chicago, on Sophomore Lounge Records)
DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS (from North Carolina and Chicago, Illinois; members of SAN AGUSTIN and TORTOISE, on Thrill Jockey)
FLANGER MAGAZINE (from Louisville)

Wednesday, November 14th
at ZANZABAR
2100 S. Preston
9 PM, $6, 21-and-over

STATE CHAMPION started in 2006 as a moniker for the early acoustic experiments of Ryan Davis. It has since evolved into a rock n’ roll band with a Chevy van and not one, but two vinyl records. Their sophomore record, Deep Shit, was released earlier this year on Sophomore Lounge Records, and has received quite a level of acclaim. Because it’s awesome!

DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS first met in early 2006 while touring as members of Rhys Chatham’s six-guitar Die Donnergötter band. Following that tour, the two spent several months trading albums and discussing making music together; they began their musical collaboration when Daniell moved from New York to Chicago later that year to study pedal steel guitar.

 These humble beginnings do little to reflect the depth and breadth of each of their talents; both are highly-respected musicians within their circles. Over the years Daniell has collaborated with many notable musicians, including Loren Connors, Rhys Chatham, Tim Barnes, Jeph Jerman, Thurston Moore, Greg Davis, and Jonathan Kane, as well as releasing numerous albums under his own name and with his band San Agustin on labels such as Table of the Elements and Family Vineyard. McCombs is more often seen wielding a bass guitar, whether as a member of Eleventh Dream Day, the acoustic collective Pullman, or the pioneering and inimitable Tortoise; in his role as the driving force behind Brokeback; or through his varied work with the likes of Tom Ze, Azita Youseffi, Will Oldham, Yo La Tengo, and Calexico. Versions, the new double album by DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS,was produced by Louisvillian Ken Brown, also a founding member of Tortoise.

FLANGER MAGAZINE is the handsome duo of Chris Bush and Ben Zoeller, who both have also played in the excellent band Caboladies. Expect some unexpected sounds, from the ridiculous to the sublime, in this, their Louisville debut.

ZAK RILES, DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS with special guest TIM BARNES at SKULL ALLEY, Thursday, October 14th


ZAK RILES
(from Louisville, member of GRAILS)
DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS
with special guest TIM BARNES (from Chicago, Illinois; members of SAN AGUSTIN and TORTOISE, on Thrill Jockey)

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14th
at SKULL ALLEY
1017 E. Broadway (near the corner of Broadway and Barrett)
8 PM, $6, All Ages! Beer available with ID.

ZAK RILES is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the Important/Temporary Residence band Grails. His creative contributions to the group are immeasurable and can be heard clearly on this self-titled debut solo outing. In fact some of the pieces on this solo record have been reinterpreted into Grails favorites. Like his band Grails, ZAK RILES’ solo work is an elaborate mansion built of inspiration but with so much strength and originality that it stands firmly on its own. On these rocky shores come crashing waves of Sandy Bull, Mogolar, Deuter, Popol Vuh and the Ventures while Persian breeze drifts by wafting the melodies of Hossein Alizadeh. Essential listening for followers of Important Records who favor the likes of Grails & James Blackshaw.

Listen to a track off the DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS album Sycamore here: The Deshabille.

At this performance, the duo of Daniell on electric guitar and McCombs on electric guitar and lap-steel will be expanded into a trio via the addition of TIM BARNES, Louisville resident and drummer extraordinaire. The list of BARNES’S collaborators is too long to list here, but it includes Jim O’Rourke, Silver Jews, Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex, The Tower Recordings, and countless others. Most recently, TIM BARNES played drums with the newly resurrected lineup of The For Carnation.
