Spawned from the formidable Louisville, Kentucky collective known as Black Velvet Fuckere, SAPAT resides as the centrifugal force in this Midwestern psychedelic madrigal set in the psychosexual backwaters of the mighty Ohio River. For the entirety of the ‘00 decade, members have kept busy collaborating with and/or massaging the egos of various and sundry avant-pontiffs such as Robert Fripp, Magik Markers, Dead Child and Eugene Chadbourne – when not honing the orgone energy of SAPAT. Their most recent LP, A Posthuman Guide to the Advent Calendar Origins of the Peep Show, was released last fall on Sophomore Lounge Records.

PETE NOLAN has been a figure in the U.S. underground basement psych scene for the past two decades. A co-founder of legendary noise-rock outfit Magik Markers (with whom he’s amassed over 50 releases), Nolan has collaborated with the likes of Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley (who serves as drummer for his long-running Spectre Folk project), Jandek, J. Mascis, John Olson, Randy “Lee” Sutherland, Chris Corsano, Thurston Moore, Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase, Elisa Ambrogio, Double Leopards, Son of Earth, Julie Cafritz, Kris Abplanalp (as Virgin Eye Blood Brothers), Brian Ramirez, Steve Gunn, Aaron Mullan, Mick Flower, Ashtray Navigations, Kim Gordon, and Mark Ibold. Taking cues from time spent in pro studios with the likes of Lee Ranaldo, Scott Colburn, and Aaron Mullan but never straying too far from his base as a sound collage artist, Nolan wrote, recorded, and mixed his new album, the first under his name, Easy at home with the assistance of his wife, Julie. If you listen closely, you can hear Nolan electrocuting Mark E. Smith mid-performance and enslaving the Clean, making them play the funky drummer for days and days while Eno whirls his Revox in stormy guilt ridden dreams. But don’t be scared off, that’s just the process. The big payback of Easy is a joyful exaltation of life, freedom, mind-expansion, and love. It’s the long way around to a simplified meaning, it’s the goal achieved in the describing, it’s an invitation to get up and dance… it’s Easy.

ZACHARY CALE has been releasing records under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland, the title of his latest record, is a work of craftsmanship full of elegant lyricism and mysterious imagery; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it, forging new paths. Taking cues from artists like Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind-era Dylan and Nick Cave’s work with the Bad Seeds, Duskland evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales. There’s a Western flair to many of the album’s songs with nods to soundtrack composers such as Morricone and the dream-laden noir of Badalamenti. Many of the album’s highlights maintain a ceremonial grace.

Due to reasons not worth delving into, this will be the last show produced and presented by The Other Side of Life for the immediate future, and possibly ever. We thank you for your support over the years, and we hope to see you at this fantastic show!

WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY FIVE COPIES OF THE GOTOBEDS’ “New York’s Alright” 7″ AT THE SHOW — STAY TUNED FOR CONTEST DETAILS!

gotobeds

THE GOTOBEDS‘ members come from Pittsburgh, PA, a place notorious for keeping great local bands to itself. But the racket these guys kick up on their first album, Poor People Are Revolting, might be too strong for the city to contain. Guitarists Eli Kasan and Tom Payne spent the last few years as part of the local hardcore band Kim Phuc. Joined by bassist Gavin Jensen and drummer Cary Belbeck, they bring that energy to THE GOTOBEDS, a rowdy, ramshackle party house of a band, built on the intersecting bedrock of post-punk and indie rock. On Poor People Are Revolting, there’s something crazy going on in every room, the front porch and the backyard: a party that never dies down or seems to stop, even as the neighbors complain and the cops drive past. Working from the spirit and fundamentals of a small handful of influences — the design sense and intellectual rowdiness of The Fall; the constant evolution and masterful poker faces of Wire, from whose drummer these guys borrowed their name; the sturdy, heroic melodic sense and layered tape-loop production of Mission of Burma — THE GOTOBEDS paint a dirty, driven, vulgar portrait of Rust Belt restlessness.

“One of the strongest American rock debuts in years, Poor People Are Revolting is an obscene gesture hoisted toward anyone who’d claim that the genre is dead.” — NPR.

OCIFER is “an up and coming garage rock band that you want to become a fan of before everyone else does.”

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND and GANGLY YOUTH, Monday, June 23rd at NACHBAR. FREE!

The Other Side of Life is proud to present:

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND (Portland, OR; on Mon Amie)

and

GANGLY YOUTH (Louisville, KY)

Monday, June 23rd
at NACHBAR
969 Charles Street (at the corner of Charles and Krieger)
9 PM, 21-and -over
FREE!

WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND formed in Portland, Oregon in 2007. As a duo the band employed banjo’s, chord organs, fuzz guitars and other various instruments, making a glorious racket across the Western, Central, and Southern United States. This incited an 11 track album of lo-fi experimental folk tunes that they self-released in 2008. The band grew in numbers and influence, playing shows under various names with various members until settling down with a stable lineup and signing with the Mon Amie record label in 2010.

Watch WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND‘s video for “Helicoptor” here:

After a bit of a hiatus and some lineup changes and whatnot, GANGLY YOUTH of Louisville, Kentucky return! Their sound is a mix of jangly noise, fuzzy pop, and a no-perfection required style. One might be reminded of bands like Sonic Youth, The Pixies, or warped cassettes playing favorite pop songs.

Watch GANGLY YOUTH play “What’s Yr Weirdness” live here:

DANIEL BACHMAN is a musician born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He has been playing what he describes as “psychedelic appalachia” since he was a teenager, releasing small run editions of tapes, CDs and LPs for the past three years, with a sound that evolved from drones and banjos to a now guitar centered focus. Touring off and on since the age of 17, BACHMAN has managed to cover thorough ground across the US, sharing stages with like minded folk such as fellow Fredericksburg native Jack Rose, for whom he fashioned the artwork for the posthumous release of Luck In The Valley. His new album Jesus I’m a Sinner is his 4th, and it is the follow-up to last year’s acclaimed Seven Pines. It was recorded in Rappahannock County Virginia at Forrest Marquisee’s studio inside his father’s woodshop in May of 2013 after spending 8 months on the road.

Before and after BACHMAN‘s set, NATHAN SALSBURG and JOEL HUNT will play all kinds of records for your musical enjoyment.

2nd ANNUAL SOPHOMORE LOUNGE FREE HALLOWEEN PARTY with JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN III, ANIMAL CITY, and GIVING UP at the NACHBAR!

Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life are proud to present:

THE 2nd ANNUAL SOPHOMORE LOUNGE FREE HALLOWEEN PARTY!

with

JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN III (Austin, TX; on Burger Records)
ANIMAL CITY (Chicago, IL; on Sophomore Lounge)
GIVING UP (Louisville, KY/Garner, IA/Wherever; on Sophomore Lounge)

Tuesday, October 29th
at NACHBAR
969 Charles Street (at the corner of Charles and Krieger)
9 PM, 21-and -over
FREE!

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.

Watch the video for GIVING UP‘s “Overdressed in Underwear” here: http://www.chartattack.com/watch/2013/10/09/video-iowa-band-giving-up-get-overdressed-underwear/.

PETE FOSCO and CHARLIE RIVERA at the NACHBAR, Tuesday, April 16th — FREE!

The Other Side of Life presents:

PETE FOSCO (Covington, KY; on Greenup Industries)

and

CHARLIE RIVERA (Louisville, KY)

Tuesday, April 16th
at NACHBAR
969 Charles Street (at the corner of Charles and Krieger)
10 PM, 21-and -over
FREE!

For the past decade PETE FOSCO has been exploring and celebrating the sonic potential of amplified electric guitars and the imaginary worlds they create. He graduated from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati in 2004 with a BFA in electronic media production. Since then his solo and collaborative work has been released by labels such as Digitalis Recordings, Reverb Worship, Holy Cheever Church, Gift Tapes, Dead Pilot, Calypso Hum, and the Greenup Industries imprint that he runs from home with his wife Heather. He has toured throughout the Midwest and Northeast United States and in Iceland. He has shared bills with many of his long-time inspirations and heroes including Charalambides, MV+EE, Six Organs of Admittance, Baby Dee, C. Spencer Yeh, Byron Westbrook, Barn Owl, Circuit des Yeux, Caboladies, Metal Rouge, and many others. He also plays in a duo with Jon Lorenz called Early Tunnels and a duo with Brad Rose called Concessionaires. In 2008 and 2009 Fosco was nominated for a Cincinnati Entertainment Award by Citybeat magazine for best experimental/electronic act. His compositions are usually at least partially if not mostly improvised, blending extended and traditional guitar techniques and drawing equal inspiration from classic 90s psychedelia like Flying Saucer Attack and Spiritualized, film soundtracks, and many varieties of free-form and improvised and sacred musics. FOSCO is a native of Cincinnati, OH and currently resides in Covington, KY.

CHARLIE RIVERA is a guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky currently known for “continually redefining what living in the moment can truly entail….Charles’ style of no-holds-barred slobber-knocker music is said to have similar effects to eating human meat in the Canadian wilderness, thus earning him his nickname of ‘The Jazz Wendigo.’”
