SEASON PASSES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR THIS SHOW


In 1994, 38-year-old school teacher Robert Pollard & his merry band recorded Bee Thousand in a Dayton, Ohio, basement on a 4-track cassette recorder. This improbable rock classic became an enormously influential album: Pitchfork and Spin have called it one of the best records of the ’90s, and Amazon picked Bee Thousand as #1 on their list of the 100 Greatest Indie Rock Albums Of All Time. A legendary live band with a rabid following, the Washington Post called GBV “the Grateful Dead equivalent for people who like Miller Lite instead of acid!”  With 10 studio albums already under their belts in less than 5 years, Guided By Voices present-day line-up is nothing less than a new Golden Age of GBV.


 "Earth Man Blues could be the band’s best album since 1995’s Alien Lanes. Put this record on and see how long it takes to utter your first joyful expletive.” **** 4 stars - Rolling Stone


"Astonishing" - GRAMMY.com


“Tremendous. A knockout from start to finish. Earth Man Blues is all killer.” ***** 5 stars  - Shindig! 


"This is their best album in decades. Let these tunes into your head and your heart and you’ll be singing them for weeks.” - The Quietus

NIGHT 1


This show is All Ages


There’s hardly a second when Alex Giannascoli’s voice can’t be heard in “Walk Away,” the opener of his
latest album, House of Sugar. The distended, pitched-up wail that introduces the track gives way to
cascading layers of his more familiar intonations. “Someday I’m gonna walk away from you,” he sings;
“not today.” These are the song’s only words, repeated again and again for more than four minutes. In the
repetition, emphasis shifts from “someday” to “not today" and back, leaving the listener in a space of
uncertainty. It’s in this space that Giannascoli—the 26-year-old artist better known as Alex G—lingers
throughout the album’s thirteen songs: between backwards and forwards, past and future, one voice and
another. On House of Sugar, his third full-length for Domino and ninth overall, Alex inhabits a diverse
range of musical and emotional points-of-view (often simultaneously), in turn illuminating the tension that
hides in the shadow of desire.

SUPER ART FIGHT- Escape From the Internet!
Super Art Fight is the greatest live art competition in the known universe, a live-action performance where two or more artists battle against each other on a giant canvas. With the help of two quipping hosts and the Wheel of Death, they compete for the audience’s affection in order to score the win. Yes, the winner of an Art Fight bout is determined by the fans, and the fans alone, as we use Science (known in some circles as a decibel reader) to determine how loud the crowd cheers and crown the winner. We pit cutting-edge artists against each other in the art of creative combat, reacting to whims of the fans.

"You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere is an unachievable promise,” says The Districts bandleader Rob Grote. “It’s about a dream for love to last forever and a yearning to postpone death. It is about wanting to escape everyday life while also craving time with one who’s present. It’s a plea to remain the same in the face of constant change, and the certainty of going nowhere fast.” Written after playing nearly 200 shows over two years in support of their 2017 album, Popular Manipulations, The Districts’ 4th full-length You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere almost never arrived.


Pulling from the propulsive Popular Manipulations, the jagged indie rock of 2015’s A Flourish and a Spoil, and the rootsy vibe of their 2012 debut, Telephone, the band here followed their creative instincts every step of the way, resulting in their most sophisticated and adventurous record to date. “I really just needed to be myself instead of being what someone else thought I should be, whether that was like some masculine bar-band singer or…I don’t know,” Grote says, laughing. “I just want to be myself, and I want to try and do that as best as I can. This record is paradoxically the most-Districts record ever with no intention of ever being one at all. It’s about breaking free from how you’re seen, always being yourself first and holding on to who you are—but also about coming together as a whole and putting your 'self' aside. Doing all that, I’ve realized, ‘Oh, this is how I want to make music from now on!’”

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION





In an era that relies so heavily on quick-hit bands, there are very few things that are truly part of the subculture and not just the passing zeitgeist du jour. Closing in on three decades, The Spits have signified the crossroads between punk mayhem and well-honed songwriting, creating some of the most unhinged and anthemic tracks in underground music while standing tall enough to be uttered in the same breath as names like Jay Reatard, Dead Moon, Ty Segall and more.


The Spits are readying their highly anticipated VI, due May 1 via their own Thriftstore Records imprint. Recorded by Erik Nervous on cassette four track, the band’s new LP VI is ten hummable tracks, shrouded in chainsaw punk that mesh the wild showmanship of party-rock legends Van Halen and the leather-clad toughness and songwriting chops of the Misfits. Marking a “return to roots’’ approach for the LP, the band decided to record and write VI in the basements of Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, Michigan over the course of several spurts of activity, each yielding a few new songs from a terrible drum kit with a literal thrift store guitar. “We’ve only been into an actual studio like three times,” admits Sean Wood. “I don’t think we’ve had one record that was recorded all in one place, this may be the closest thing. And for these songs we’d record a couple tracks, step away and go back at it later– sometimes weeks later. You know, take our time.”


Originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan, brothers Sean and Erin Wood formed The Spits with Lance Phelps in 1993 after realizing rock had gone limp, hated partying and just plain wasn’t fun anymore. And even though they didn’t even know how to play, the self-professed deliquents who grew up with New Orleans–style jazz and bluegrass “got cultured” and formed a band dead set on reminding the world how to have a good time. The Spits didn’t fit in with the punks or the garageheads when they landed in Seattle two years later, but carved out their own path with a series of empty open mic nights and parties under a bridge in the University District. Things started snowballing a year or two later with a good word from Mudhoney’s Steve Turner and a reputation for livewire gigs.


By the late 90s/early 00s, The Spits were almost as famous for rowdy shows and outrageous costumes as they were for their acid-fried melodic rippers. Releasing five LPs over the next decade-plus, in addition to EPs and 7-inches, the gospel of The Spits spread far and wide, expanding the band’s live legend further and further while giving more fans the chance to hear their uniquely catchy songwriting and punk mayhem. And while several band members have come and gone since their formation, including Wayne Draves and Josh Kramer, The Spits have never lost their edge, never lost their live chops and most importantly, never lost that sense of beer-soaked chaos.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION




With each new release, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, Jakob Tvilling Pless, Johan Surrballe Wieth and Dan Kjær Nielsen
refigure the contours of a typical Iceage song. This is especially true of Seek Shelter, their fifth LP and first for
Mexican Summer. Enrolling Sonic Boom (Pete Kember of Spacemen 3) to produce the record and an additional
guitarist in the form of Casper Morilla Fernandez, Seek Shelter sees Iceage’s propulsive momentum pushing them
in new, expansive, ecstatic directions. A decade on from their first record, Iceage continue to harness their lives
together through music. This journey, in music and life, has never progressed in a linear fashion.
Seek Shelter is the sound of a tight emotional core unwound. Rain dripped through cracks in the ceiling of
Namouche, the dilapidated wood-paneled vintage studio in Lisbon where the band set up for 12 days. The band
had to arrange their equipment around puddles. Pieces of cloth covered slowly filling buckets so that the sound of
raindrops wouldn’t reach the microphones. Kember arranged garden lamps from a nearby party store for mood
lighting in the high-ceiling space. It was the longest time Iceage have ever spent making an album. When the rain
had stopped, Seek Shelter revealed itself as a collection of songs radiating warmth and a profound desire for
salvation in a world that’s spinning further and further out of control.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

FUZZ


Ty Segall, Charles Moothart and Chad Ubovich


Abandoning expectation. Abandoning reservation, consummation, resignation, and trite dictation. Instinct is all there is when it comes to the divination of harsh salvation. Segall, Moothart, and Ubovich are exploring all the blank-ations of what will be, or has always been, Fuzz II. Tried and true methods mixed with tongue twisting, teeth shattering, seizure-inducing stabs at the norm. Who knows … maybe that’s wrong. Maybe it’s all done. Played out. Maybe it’s not for want of new but for lack of old. But probably not. Bathe in the heat wave that is Fuzz, and regret nothing in the time freeze. Necessity is the mother of invention creation; and devolution stakes its claim in the past as it continues to bind itself to the future.


San Francisco, Los Angeles, heaven, hell, lunar fields, subterranean hallucinations, traffic jams, sleepless days, hazy nights, recollection or blind reflection. It is all there and so should be you. 2015 will bring a new surge of slime, fuzz, and otherwise bittersweet concoctions of earthly lettering. It will be heavy, chaotically controlled, softly serpentine, and blindingly barbaric. To translate the auditory from ethereal to saliva soaked semantics is to shatter a promise as it’s made.


In the meantime, Ty, Charles, and Chad walk on. It is what it is. Just like everything else. And if you don’t know, now you know.


This message brought to you by In the Red Educational Services … as it was before and is it will be again.
