    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION










    Alright, Raleigh.  We’re getting noised out.  It’s Nathaniel Rappole’s long-standing solo project GULL from Richmond, joined by The Triangle’s own DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS.


    GULL
    Bandcamp | Instagram | YouTube
    Nathaniel Rappole’s solo project, GULL, was conceived on an endangered wildlife preserve in Front Royal, VA in 1999, and has been publicly active since 2007.


    Gull is “best described as a drum; a living, breathing drum of flesh on fire that cries out assorted tongues of creatures past and delivers it from a single unique perspective; a communal music broadcast of blood and bile left as an offering on the altar of sound.” With the release of Relative Stranger, there are odes to dreams, to Patti Smith, to a well-traveled car, to a friend and bandmate lost.

    Shady’s back, ya’ll!


    We’re taking our original show, Cthulhu: the Musical!, on the road on our “Road to R'Lyeh” 2024 summer tour.  For the uninitiated, here’s our deal: PFF is Oregon’s only dedicated puppet musical horror troupe. We perform original scripts with original music. Far from the lo-fi puppet show stereotype, our productions feature elaborate custom-built hand-and-rod (Muppet-style) puppets, a full-rock band, multimedia scenic art projections, and a full cast of performers––each a Swiss army knife of talent unto themselves, slaying as actors, puppeteers, singers, improv comics, and world class Twister athletes (srsly, it gets crazy behind the puppet house).


    The play is adapted from the 1929 short story, The Call of Cthulhu,” by horror icon, H.P. Lovecraft, and tells the story of his most famous creation: Cthulhu, a giant, malevolent, octopus-faced elder god who hibernates beneath the ocean, communicating to humans through their dreams, slowly driving them mad. While Lovecraft is not as much of a household name as writers like Stephen King or Edgar Allen Poe, he is widely considered to be the creator of the genre of gothic horror, and the creatures and themes he created are highly influential on modern literature of all genres. The story we chose to adapt is dark, disturbing, and totally unfit for musical comedy—all qualities that make it a perfect fit for our style.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    It's the moment we've all been waiting for... Raleigh's infamous LONNIE WALKER returns!  They're putting out their new record Easy Easy Easy Easy (out July 7th on Sleepy Cat Recs) and we are throwing down with the likes of Carrboro's gaze-ful VERITY DEN and local indie supergroup: QWILT.  This is going to be one that the indie heads will not want to miss.


    LONNIE WALKER
    Website | Bandcamp | Spotify | Instagram
    Brian Corum formed North Carolina indie rock band Lonnie Walker while he was still a student at East Carolina University. After filling out the rest of the lineup with guitarist Eric Hill, drummer Raymond Finn, keyboardist Justin Flythe, and bassist Josh Bridgers, the band released its debut These Times Old Times


    Lonnie Walker toured steadily throughout the South, with bassist Mike Robinson joining prior to the release of follow-up Earth Canals. That year, however, Corum — the group’s primary songwriter, in addition to its vocalist and rhythm guitarist — was swept up in the opioid epidemic, and eventually ended up at a homeless shelter in Raleigh.


    As Corum slowly rebuilt his life and considered his future as a musician, he began writing new songs — with “one of the only guitars I didn’t sell,” he notes — and eventually, the band returned in 2017. “I really can’t help it. I enjoy it,” Corum says of playing in Lonnie Walker, before adding: “I really can’t help it.”


    Easy, Easy, Easy, Easy was recorded with Colin Swanson-White at Synaesthetics Studios in Raleigh in late 2019, and sees the band further develop its unique stamp on the Carolina music scene, driven by raucous sound and Corum’s intensely personal songwriting.


    VERITY DEN
    Bandcamp | Instagram
    Verity Den was born of chance meetings and life-long dedications. The band is comprised of Casey Proctor, Trevor Reece and Mike Wallace, all of whom spent considerable time in their respective and shared DIY-music communities before converging to form the group in early 2023. Casey and Trevor initially met as members of an ad-hoc improv ensemble performing tape loops, strings, and electronics as part of a multi-disciplinary series hosted on a rooftop in Chapel Hill called Attic 506. Soon after, the three shifted from long-running musical projects to focus on exploring new sonic territories together. The band operates in an ever-evolving dynamic of group improvisation and studio experimentation, capturing moments of coarse circuit completion and bringing to fruition long-gestating ideas and songs. The sound is raw and largely unadorned, transmitting both truth and wildness.


    QWILT
    Spotify | Instagram
    Qwilt, formerly and briefly known as Wilt, is a supergroup based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. A collaboration between Emma Stees (lead vocals, guitar), Jonathan Crews (guitar, noise), Max Gowan (bass, engineering), and Adrian Teegarden (drums, vocals), the project weaves together dreamy, haunting melodies with powerful, distorted noise. The band is a unique combination of shoegaze and post-rock fueled by unleaded gasoline, junk food, and the power of friendship. Sometimes nauseating, sometimes sickly sweet, Qwilt is a midnight Sonic blast, a bologna sandwich at the speedway, a Cheerwine on an inner tube.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    Fiona Moonchild
    Bandcamp | InstagramYouTube


    Born out of finding yourself in the the cosmic confusion of living out on the road, Sweets of Reason (2021) is a lush 12-song collection of infectious melodies set to the dreamy synths. PNW born Fiona Moonchild has been touring and playing shows relentlessly in collaborative projects such as Scott Yoder, Boyfriends and Doglob, but has only recently come out on her own to profuse her first darkly glamorous debut solo record.


    Influences from Stereolab and Bowie are clearly part of the sonic genealogy of the dozen romantically saturated tracks that all started coming together on breaks from touring as a bedroom pop project. Bit by bit, her songwriting quickly expanded upon her receiving the Crybaby Studies Musician Grant, where she was able to do most of the instrumental tracking. Vocals were tracked at the DIY legendary Woodland Theater, and her Italy based touring pal Giacomo Papini was recruited on drums as the only outside instrumentalist. It was mixed, engineered, and produced herself-mostly on land, but some at sea, during her epic stint sailing from Seattle to Southern California.


    As the world emerges from the wreckage of Covid-19, Moonchild keeps a cautious dream of hope, singing, “you’re the Pilar that keeps this city erect/do you know you are a beautiful dreamer.”
