La Femme + Cumgirl8
8pm - $20 - All Ages


LA FEMME
Paris, France
https://lafemmeressort.bandcamp.com/
Few bands have invigorated French pop like La Femme over the last decade, and in 2021, they're coming to make all of our lives better. Paradigmes, the much-awaited third album from the Paris-based, Biarritz band, offers a shift in how we see the world, a kaleidoscopic vortex to a different, more vibrant dimension. 

La Femme have always assimilated the sounds that surround them. Their 2013 debut album Psycho Tropical Berlin paid homage to kosmische, surf rock and cold wave; the followup - 2016's Mystère - hybridised elements of psych disco, Egyptian iconography and intoxicating flavours of 90's hip hop. It's music for the internet age that draws on vintage and eclectic good taste, where playful, sonic Dadaist collages are turned into something ebullient and remarkable, strewn with lyrics that are feisty, funny, philosophical and sometimes forlorn.

Girl Ultra + Katzu Oso
7:30 - $20 adv / $25 dos - All Ages


GIRL ULTRA
Mexico City, MX
https://soundcloud.com/girlultra
Girl Ultra is the musical project of Mexico City-based artist Mariana de Miguel who creates sparkling R&B cuts that shine from start to finish. Inspired by the nostalgia for late 80’s, early 90’s silky smooth sounds and contemporary soul but on her own language; Spanish. Over the past few years, the singer/songwriter has released a handful of stellar records in the form of 2018’s ‘Adiós’ and most recently, her full-length debut album ‘Nuevos Aires’ which dropped last year. The record features stand-out cuts like ‘DameLove’ feat. Cuco and ‘fuckhim’, a striking collaboration with Ximena Sariñana. With her intentions of releasing her first studio album ‘Nuevos Aires’ this year, she’s trying to mark a before and after in her career by sticking to the all-organic recording methods, exploring the force in her lyrics, and shaping the message of this new season. She’s caught the attention of international media, giving her the opportunity to tour throughout the US with The Marias and Triathalon in 2018 and on 2019 with Clubz and also Europe by herself in November 2019. Participating in the international berlin-based internet show 'Colors' she opened a brand new path for herself and upcoming Latin alternative r&b artists.

HELMET
New York, NY
https://www.helmetmusic.com/
Helmet was formed in New York City in 1989 by founding members Page Hamilton, Henry Bogdan, Peter Mengede, and John Stanier. The group soon after signed to Ampthetamine Reptile Records and released their first full length Strap It On in 1991. Interscope Records soon came calling and signed the band in 1992. Their label debut Meantime went on to sell over a million copies and earned a Grammy nomination.

The band has released eight albums over the last 30 years and has gone through different personnel before settling on the current lineup of Page Hamilton, Dan Beeman, Dave Case, and Kyle Stevenson – which has proven to be the most consistent and longest running iteration of the band. 

The band has also contributed music to a number of films including Johnny Mnemonic, The Crow, Feeling Minnesota, The Jerky Boys, Gun Crazy and Judgement Night (a collaboration with hip hop group House of Pain). Their most recent album Dead To The World was released in 2016 by German-based label earMusic.

Mortified DC: Summer Break Edition!
8:00 - $20 - All Ages


 


The wildly popular Mortified DC, produced by Alex Hewett and Adam Ruben, stars everyday adults sharing their most embarrassingly real teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics, and locker notes ... in front of total strangers.


Hailed as a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek, this is a comic excavation of the strange and extraordinary things we created as teens.

KARATE
Boston, MA
linktr.ee/thebandkarate
Established in 1993, Boston’s Karate released six albums and played nearly 700 shows in 20 countries during their 12-year run.


Geoff Farina, Gavin McCarthy, Eamonn Vitt, and later, Jeff Goddard decelerated and deconstructed their post-punk influences for their first three full-lengths, and merged the results with post-war jazz, blues, and other disparate influences for their genre-bending Unsolved, Some Boots, and Pockets albums.


In 2021 Karate partnered with The Numero Group to deliver physical and digital releases of their long out-of-print catalog.


In July of 2022, Karate will meet again on stage for the first time in 17 years.
