MOUNT CARMEL, NEIGHBOR, and LAST YEAR’S MEN at LISA’S OAK STREET LOUNGE, Wednesday, May 22nd

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

MOUNT CARMEL (Columbus, OH; on Siltbreeze Records)
NEIGHBOR (Louisville, KY)
LAST YEAR’S MEN (Chapel Hill, NC; on Sophomore Lounge)

Wednesday, May 22nd
at LISA’S OAK STREET LOUNGE
1004 E. Oak Street
9 PM, 21-and-over, $6
Please note: Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge accepts CASH ONLY!

For those swayed by the magisterial authenticity of MOUNT CARMEL on their eponymous 2010 debut album: its 2012 follow-up Real Women finds the band honed and sharper, thus delivering what might be the best sophomore album released by an American blues-based power-trio since ZZ Top’s Rio Grande Mud. Nods to Free, Humble Pie, even Trapeze can be sussed out in the mix, but at the end of the day, Real Women is straight-up MOUNT CARMEL all the way. Searing leads, smokey vocals, thundering rhythms, cascading drums, hyperbolic hyperbole… it’s all here. MOUNT CARMEL brings back the spirit of 1973 like no one else. The only difference now is better weed and shittier barbiturates. It’s hands-down pure rock, no frills. Nary a retro contrivance is to be heard. These guys live it for real. Honest.

NEIGHBOR of Louisville, Kentucky draws from punk, experimental and underground influences as well as classic soul, country and western to produce a unique breed of heavy American rock n’ roll. Recommended for fans of Big Business, Harvey Milk, and Motorhead. Featuring former and current members of Bu Hao Ting, Twenty First Century Fox, Waxeater, and ZCFOS.

“When I first met [LAST YEAR’S MEN] songwriter and guitarist/vocalist Ben Carr through our mutual friend (and producer of their last record) Dan McGee, a couple years ago in their shared stomping grounds of Chapel Hill, NC, the skin-and-bones, baby-faced frontman wasn’t old enough to be allowed into the bar. To be honest, I’m not sure he’s even old enough as of today, but the kid can write songs beyond his years, and if the acned, nervous, no-bullshit garage-pop punk of Clawless Paw isn’t glaring proof of potential, I’ll grab the gas, skate to the sock-hop, and burn the gym down myself… LAST YEAR’S MEN play a full on intoxicated and intoxicating wall-of-sound garage rock that has us transfixed as the first time we heard the Reigning Sound or the Drags. A little touch of the flower punk of the Black Lips, a lot of the fiery revolt of the Nashville garage scene (Ranch Ghost, Jeff The Brotherhood, Useless Eaters, etc) and much love for the back catalogs of Crypt and Sympathy For The Music Industry all concentrated… Recommended for those into Ty Segall, G Green, White Fence and all those aforementioned bands.” — Permanent Records.

OAKS NIGHT PARTY with THE RITCHIE WHITE ORCHESTRA and JUANITA at LISA’S OAK STREET LOUNGE, Friday, May 3rd

RWO Derby Eve
(flier by Greg Hendricks)

Cropped Out and the Other Side of Life present:

JUANITA (Louisville, KY)
THE RITCHIE WHITE ORCHESTRA (Louisville, KY; NYC, NY; Los Angeles, CA)

Friday, May 3rd
at LISA’S OAK STREET LOUNGE
1004 E. Oak Street
9 PM, 21-and-over, $7
Please note: Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge accepts CASH ONLY!

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!

THE RITCHIE WHITE ORCHESTRA is one of life’s sonic rewards. An exploration in aural dissonant lollipops perfect for the brain. Comprised of anyone and everybody the Orchestra has featured some distinguished collaborators in the past – Lydia Lunch, Stephin Merritt, Roddy Bottum, Matt Fishbeck and more. As Jacqueline Susaan writes, “You have to climb to the top of Mount Everest to reach the Valley of the Dolls.”

BUCK GOOTER, HURRICANES OF LOVE and THE RITCHIE WHITE ORCHESTRA at LISA’S OAK STREET LOUNGE, Wednesday, February 20th

Cropped Out and the Other Side of Life present:

BUCK GOOTER (Harrisonburg, VA; on X Mist Records)
HURRICANES OF LOVE (Everywhere)
THE RITCHIE WHITE ORCHESTRA (Louisville, KY; NYC, NY; Los Angeles, CA)

Wednesday, February 20th
at LISA’S OAK STREET LOUNGE
1004 E. Oak Street
9 PM, 21-and-over, $5

Listening to BUCK GOOTER you hear contradictions of caterwauling, cacophonous railing; screaming, snarling and gnashing hurled over drony beats and jarring guitar lines.  One can’t help thinking to oneself if this is a white-trash parody of trailer park life, a punk-rock free-style or some sort of crypto-intellectualizing with a ciphered message. Whatever the intention, one gets a kind of involuntary headbanging, arm-shaking, thrashing reaction to it from the second their huge sound starts. Their new album, Witch Molecules, was released last month on Germany’s X Mist Records, and was recorded by Don Zientara at Inner Ear in Arlington, Virginia.

Frank Copenhaver, the central presence in the rotating cast of musicians and friends that makes up the psychedelic folk group HURRICANES OF LOVE, has chosen an appropriate name for his music project. Copenhaver himself is a force of nature, an ebullient enthusiast of goodwill and good vibes—in a recent interview, he described two different places as “paradise on earth.” And he has no fixed location, landing, he says, “where the wind would take me.” — from Metropulse.
