JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN III is the definition of the wildman troubador in modern times, and has certainly earned a deserved reputation with his sensibility for original, creative and bizarre recordings with both THE GOLDEN BOYS and his namesake here. The guy has a sense of weird, time-proof stoner genius bottled up “as” rock n roll that is undeniable, and gravity worked its magnetic pull. A mix of the real and the absurd in one man, with an uncanny  ability to combine worldly intelligence with humor that “accidentally” hints at the sublime.

Following their studio debut You Win Some, You Loser (Sophomore Lounge, 2010), Chicago’s favorite skateshop pop quartet ANIMAL CITY is back on wax with their follow-up full-length, See You In The Funny Pages. Though two and a half years without a proper record might seem like a healthy hunk of downtime, don’t let the calendar fool you. The boys have been busy. Since first forming their creative kinship nearly 7 years ago, key songwriters Sal Cassato and Dakota Loesch have knocked out a dozen-or-so collections of lo-fi, homegrown, harmonious rock jams ranging in style from stoner/loner acoustic wayfaring to full-on, funked-up and jazzed-out anthems. “I can’t deny the enjoyability that comes with a well-edited, snappy rock band like this… Even as I get older and uglier, I refuse to entirely hate anyone and everyone on the grounds that they are not as bitter as myself; bands like Animal City are chicken soup for the soul.” –Yellow Green Red.

Mikie, Sean, and Jenny of GIVING UP were all snuck out of their 16 year old bedrooms to hang out and cause trouble. Now they sneak out of their respective 20 something year old major midwestern towns to return to Iowa, write songs, goof off, and feel feelings.

FREE HALLOWEEN PARTY with DAUGHN GIBSON and STATE CHAMPION at the NACHBAR!

Astro Black Records, Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life are proud to present:

A FREE HALLOWEEN PARTY!

with

DAUGHN GIBSON (Carslile, PA; on Sub Pop)

and

STATE CHAMPION (from Louisville/Southern Indiana/Chicago, on Sophomore Lounge Records)

Wednesday, October 31st
at NACHBAR
969 Charles Street (at the corner of Charles and Krieger)
9 PM, 21-and -over
FREE!

DAUGHN GIBSON hails from the Cumberland Valley town of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The charismatic crooner and sound sculptor’s music sets his subversively witty and colorful tales against an engaging blend of electronic, country and blues. GIBSON’s spirited, DIY approach is informed by his time spent playing in punk and metal bands and stints as a cross-country truck driver. His deep baritone adds to the allure, which posits the handsome balladeer in territory explored by the greats. He’s earned comparisons to the likes of Lee Hazelwood, Scott Walker and Arthur Russell, and contemporary artists like Nicolas Jaar, Magnetic Fields and James Blake. DAUGHN GIBSON’s music first caught the attention of Philadelphia-based indie label White Denim (run by Sub Pop label mate and Pissed Jeans member Matt Korvette), who immediately agreed to release DG’s debut, All Hell, in April 2012. In June of 2012, Dull Knife Records released the 7″ single “Lite Me Up” b/w “The Mark of a Man.” DAUGHN GIBSON’s All Hell won praise from the likes of Pitchfork, SPIN, FILTER, Austin Chronicle, Baltimore City Paper, Philadelphia Weekly, San Francisco Bay Guardian, Brooklyn Vegan, Tiny Mix Tapes, The Needle Drop, and more.

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! Welcome them back to Louisville for their first show since last Spring.
