THE SHONDES (rhymes with “Hondas” and Yiddish for “shames” or “disgraces”) are a rock band from Brooklyn, NY, who play Bikini Kill-meets-Bruce Springsteen-style sing-along anthems for you. Formed by best friends Louisa Rachel Solomon and Elijah Oberman back in 2006, the band has released four albums, including 2013′s critically-acclaimed The Garden (praised by Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, etc.). The band has toured the U.S. with Against Me! and headlined U.S. and European tours, including shows with Uh Huh Her, Electrelane, Rasputina, MEN, Caithlin De Marrais (Rainer Maria), Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady), Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag), Erase Errata, Amy Ray (The Indigo Girls), Joe Lally (Fugazi), Mecca Normal, Bonfire Madigan, Party Line (Bratmobile), Lesbians on Ecstasy, Kaia Wilson (Team Dresch) and many more; and performed at festivals including CMJ Music Festival in New York, South By Southwest in Austin, and North By Northeast in Toronto.

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.

HAILEY WOJCIK’s darkly witty lyrics and fierce aesthetic have earned her the title of “the Wednesday Addams of her genre” (The Deli Magazine), and My Old Kentucky Blog notes that she “sounds mighty fine at volumes that may disturb others who may be in the room with you.” Her music and videos have caught the attention of Magnet, After Ellen, MTV, Logo, and Girls Get Busy Zine. She has co-directed several music videos, many of which included her own stop-motion animation. Her debut album, Diorama, was produced by Dan Romer in 2010 (Beasts of the Southern Wild, Jenny Owen Youngs, Jukebox the Ghost). In the intervening years since releasing Diorama, Hailey pursued a side project, the garage rock two-piece, WOJCIK, which released an eponymous EP and an LP entitled Wise Blood, in 2012 and 2013, respectively. The Book of Beasts EP comes out on March 3rd, 2015 on cassette with Wiener Records.

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.

JULIE OF THE WOLVES formed in September of 2011 and includes members of Madame Machine, The Frequent Sea, Second Story Man, Venus Trap, Minnow, and The Red Nails.  They’re one of the most exciting new bands in Louisville at the moment, and if you haven’t seen them play yet (with other great bands such as Old Baby, Freakwater, Black God, and the Hal Dolls), now’s your chance! This show is also a fundraiser to help them finance their new record!

OPPOSABLE THUMBS is “part party and part sweated garage rock… Every instrument is as key and in your face; none overtake the order of the chaos being preached. It’s stripped down post-punk that has a almost considerable dance to it. Not dance rock; fuck that. This digs into late 70s/early 80s vibes… This band seems to me to be a perfect culmination of a history of Louisville’s crud rock scene rolled together and spit out. The unhinged destruction of convention still exists pounded through a discipline that keeps the songs together and groovy.” — American Gloam.

Watch OPPOSABLE THUMBS‘ video for the song “Hello Babies” off their self-titled debut album here:

Lots of Shows This Weekend!

So we’re gonna tell you about a few things going on in Louisville over the next few days that are worth your attention. First, on Saturday night at Harley’s Main Street Tavern, Michigan’s Child Bite performs with locals Opposable Thumbs and Friends & Relatives. Here’s the flier:

Harley’s is located at 122 W. Main between 1st and 2nd Streets. Music gets underway around 10 PM and costs five bucks.

On Sunday our favorites PARLOUR play at the Chestnut House (714 East Chestnut Street, between Clay and Shelby) with Dischord recording artists Edie Sedgwick, Julie of the Wolves (a new band consisting of members of Venus Trap, Second Story Man, Minnow, The Frequent Sea, and Madame Machine) and Life at Home (Don’t know anything about them, unfortunately). Here’s another flier:

Also on Sunday at RYE (900 E. Market at the corner of Market and Campbell), Bro. Stephen plays with Joan Shelley. Cost for that one is $15, which includes food, and it starts at 7 PM.

Last but not least, on Monday Brooklyn noise merchants VAZ play Cahoot’s with Trophy Wives, Alcohol Party, and Neighbor. We’re seriously considering breaking our no-Cahoot’s rule for this one. Maybe we’ll see you there?

UPDATE: We knew we forgot something! There’s also another show on Sunday at Zanzabar with SOFTCHEQUE, Y/Y, and the Ecstatic Girth Survival Sextet. Or something. Info on the flier:

Rumor has it one band is TROPICAL TRASH-related, who killed it last Tuesday at Harley’s. So there’s that. Enjoy!
