Yes. That WIRE. The seminal English band that influenced everyone from the Minutemen to My Bloody Valentine, from R.E.M. to Minor Threat. From their 1977 debut album Pink Flag to the band’s most recent album, 2013’s Change Becomes Us, legendary art-combo WIRE have created a unique body of work. Subverting genres, Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey and Matthew Simms continue to work on new material, regularly confounding expectations. The Louisville stop on their summer tour will be their only appearance in the region, as well as their first time playing anywhere in Kentucky. If you’re at all a fan of music in the post-punk era, you won’t want to miss this!

NATIVES are a catchy, tough, psychedelic punk band from Louisville, KY. This is their second show with a new, powerful lineup. You can listen to their self-released debut from 2011, Loose Secrets, here: http://ntvs.bandcamp.com/.

This is the launch party for a new Louisville-based web publication called Distonal (from the creative forces that brought you the recently retired Decibel Tolls). In the words of the head honcho himself, Michael Powell:

Distonal is an online magazine spread across an anchored open source WordPress home and an accompanying Tumblr that will cover… well, whatever I feel like writing about. It’s the opposite of The Decibel Tolls in that regard, and it’s hard to say what will end up there, which excites me. The thread that binds everything, though, will be thoughtful and attitude-laden writing from myself and others (to be announced) that reaches toward broader universal topics, as well as articles that retain a strong commitment to the happenings of my native Louisville. I’ll still be reviewing records and photographing shows, but I may also drop some secret Bloggins curry recipes, March Madness picks, gastropub critiques, absurd manifestos, and my thoughts on the body politic. Distonal promises to be fluid and freeform, while brandishing a distinct voice all the while. It should go live sometime in late February, or early March at the latest. It’ll be a fun ride, and I hope you’ll follow me over there.
