SCREAMING FEMALES is a punk rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. They have released five full length albums. The band features Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals, Jarrett Dougherty on drums, and King Mike on bass. SCREAMING FEMALES got their start in New Brunswick’s basement show scene. The band has gone on to achieve success with a wider exposure, having been featured on NPR, and have played with bands such as Garbage, Throwing Muses, Dinosaur Jr., The Dead Weather, Arctic Monkeys, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, JEFF the Brotherhood, and many more. They will release a new live album this spring, and will tour the US with the Julie Ruin.

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.

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.

Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life present:

MADAME MACHINE (Louisville, KY; on Noise Pollution)
THE GOSPEL TRUTH (Austin, TX; on 12XU)

Thursday, June 20th
2100 S. Preston
$6, advance tickets available here: http://zanzabarlouisville.ticketfly.com/event/285823-madame-machine-louisville/.
9 PM, 21-and-over!

MADAME MACHINE is a Louisville trio consisting of David Cundiff (Lucky Pineapple, Bodyhammer), Salena Filichia (Julie of the Wolves), and Forrest Kuhn (Ennui, Sunspring, Black Cross). They’ve released one excellent 7″ on Louisville’s Noise Pollution label, and have played with the likes of The Teeth, Parlour, Softcheque, Hal Dolls, and other local delinquents. They’re rapidly becoming known as one of the best bands in town, so don’t miss them!

TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN DAWN was founded in early 2012 for the purpose of studying spiritual awakenings through low-frequency bombardment as well as transcendental mind expansion using electric six-string techniques. The founding four members (Scott Brooks [guitar, vocals], J. Brian Reese [guitar, vocals], J Brent Stewart [bass], and Pinker Lichvar [drums]) have come together from the remnants of other Orders & Secret Societies (Les Debutantes, L&N, Manchuria, The Ravenna Colt) to seek, together, further enlightenment and a Universal Knowledge.

Austin’s THE GOSPEL TRUTH have been knocking around since 2007, but it’s only been in the past two years that vocalist/saxophonist/keyboard player Mark Tonucci’s quartet have really caught fire. All-malicious-intent in a way that runs contrary to Austin’s party vibe, they’ve emerged as one of the town’s top live bands in the process. Not only is it hard to come up with a regional precedent for THE GOSPEL TRUTH, it’s almost as tough to ID an album as out of time as A Lonely Man Does Foolish Things, which will be released on 12XU Records this June 18th.

Two Good Shows Tomorrow!

It’s going to be tough to decide on which of these to go to — that is, if we end up not having to work tomorrow night!

The Web
Brett Ralph’s Kentucky Chrome Revue
David Grubbs
Rude Weirdo
Straight A’s
at the Bard’s Town, 1801 Bardstown Road. 9 PM, $6, apparently now it’s all ages. This show, presented by Louisville’s excellent Noise Pollution label, should be a good one as it’s well-stocked with artists that (should) need no introduction. If you need more info, you might find it at the Facebook event here: http://www.facebook.com/events/145355115567233.

Also, over at Zanzabar (which is at 2100 S. Preston, of course), Natural Child and State Champion are playing (here’s the event invite: http://www.facebook.com/events/255787627819138). Natural Child played an excellent set at this year’s Cropped Out, so if you missed it, don’t sleep on this show! It’s $5, 21-and-over, and starts at 9 PM.

No matter what you end up doing, have a fantastic New Year!

Two Great Shows This Weekend!

Louisvillians have the rare treat of two really great shows this weekend. Here’s information on both of them:

CEREBELLUM (from Louisville, on Noise Pollution)
TROPHY WIVES (from Louisville/Illinois, on Noise Pollution)
THE TEETH (from Louisville/Southern Indiana, on Noise Pollution)

Saturday, July 31
1017 E. Broadway
8 PM, $6, ALL AGES!

Here’s what Mat Herron wrote about the show in this week’s LEO Weekly:

Cerebellum was only around from 1988-1989, but the work of the band’s members outlasts its breakup.Three-quarters of the band went on to form Crain — guitarists Tim Furnish and Joey Mudd, bassist Jon Cook and drummer Will Chatham. The team of Furnish, Cook and Breck Pipes — an apropos furniture store name if ever there was one — now hold court in Parlour, Mudd fronts Midnite Sons, and guitarist Drew Daniel [Drew didn’t actually play guitar, but sang/banged metal objects —ed.], who designed the cover of Cerebellum’s lone cassette, is one half of Baltimore experimental duo Matmos

This past spring, Noise Pollution, who has taken up the mantle of curating much of Louisville’s older punk music, re-released Cerebellum’s first tape along with five songs — “Begin,” “Guard,” “Hurt,” “Brighten” and “Crawl Out of the Water” — recorded at Trip Barriger’s Studio K.

The special edition LP came out just in time for the band’s reunion show back in May to raise money for Jason Noble, but their proper release happens July 31 at Skull Alley (1017 E. Broadway, www.skullalley.net). The all ages show is $6. Trophy Wives and The Teeth open.

CEREBELLUM’s performance in May was awesome, don’t miss this one!

Also, Sunday night brings the following show to a new space (in the same building as St. Francis High School):


Sunday, August 1st
233 W. Broadway
7:30 PM, $7-10 suggested donation

This show was curated in part by Michael over at the Decibel Tolls, so it’s bound to be great. Don’t miss it!

THE WEB, PHANTOM FAMILY HALO, SOFTCHEQUE at The Vernon Club, Saturday, June 12th



Saturday, June 12th
at The Vernon Club
1575 Story Avenue
9 PM, $6, 18+

Details about the show from Noise Pollution:

Completing their slow reemergence from the abyss, enigmatic Louisville legends THE WEB will be releasing their (very, very) long awaited third album, Clydotorous Scrotohendron, on June 12th. The seven song album will be released on LP with letter pressed covers by Dexterity Press. Clydotorous Scrotohendron will also include a free digital download of the album with purchase of the LP.  This will be The Web’s first release in twelve years (and only third show in the same timeframe) and features the core lineup of Andrew Willis, Jason Hayden, Steve Good, Tony Hoyle and Gary Pahler.  The release show will take place at Vernon Club (1575 Story Ave) on Saturday, June 12th and marks The Web’s return to (at least) semi-active status. Opening for The Web will be two other incredible Louisville bands Phantom Family Halo and Softcheque. Doors at 9pm. Cost is $6. 18 and over. As huge fans of The Web for many years, we are thrilled and honored to have them on the label.  Azuza!

UPDATE, 6/9/2010: LEO Weekly ran a short feature by Mat Herron on The Web, including details on the new album, in today’s edition. Check it out here: http://leoweekly.com/music/follow-plant.
