SISTER - Tuesday, February 24


SISTER 02-24-2015 Cursive’s 2015 tour will come hot on the heels of Saddle Creek Records November 24th, 2014 release of an expanded, deluxe reissue of their 2003 breakthrough album, The Ugly Organ. Each night’s setlist will feature songs culled from across the band’s seven albums – including their most recent, 2012’s I Am Gemini– in addition to drawing heavily from The Ugly Organ. A cellist will also accompany the band throughout the tour to perform on any The Ugly Organ-era songs. Cursive is the longtime trio of Tim Kasher (vocals, guitar), Matt Maginn (bass), and Ted Stevens (guitar, vocals), with Patrick Newbery (keys) and Cully Symington (drums). The band is known for their vital, magnetic live show, earning rave reviews from outlets including the Cleveland Scene’s C-Note music blog (”[Tim Kasher’s] effect on the crowd was chilling last night…Cursive was focused and on-spot, composed and gripping”), Nuvo Weekly (“…the five-piece slashed through a near-perfect set of songs from their last nine years of albums”), and the Orlando Sentinel’s Soundboard blog (“…the band still knows how to rock on stage…[Cursive] thrashed away with an abandon that heightened the passion of Kasher’s dense, emotionally charged wordplay.”) Beach Slang Twinsmith $13 pre sale / $15 at the door (get your tickets now!)

SISTER 03-09-2015 In 1965 five boys, ages 15 and 16, stepped onto the stage of the legendary PANDORA’S BOX on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip…. THE SLOTHS were born. The Sloths played virtually every venue in Hollywood; The Palladium, The Stratford, Sea Witch, The Hullabaloo, Bito Lidos, The Galaxy, and The Whiskey. They shared the bill with The Doors, Love, Iron Butterfly, The Seeds, The Electric Prunes and British icons Pink Floyd and The Animals. THE SLOTHS recorded two original songs for Impression Records; ‘MAKIN’ LOVE’ and ‘YOU MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME’. Taking the 45 vinyl themselves to local radio stations, ‘Makin’ Love’ was considered way too controversial for 1960’s airplay. By the end of Summer 1966, the group disbanded. A few members joined other rock groups, the others left the music profession entirely. Unbeknownst to them, during the 1980s, their record of MAKIN’ LOVE was discovered and added to a collection of garage band music entitled BACK FROM THE GRAVE. It was now covered by many bands including The Gories. By 2011, the scarce remaining copies of their 45rpm of MAKIN’ LOVE and YOU MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME was selling on eBay for $6,550.00. Hearing of this, rock fanzine UGLY THINGS decided to do an article on this unique occurrence and wanted to solve the mystery of ‘Who were The Sloths?’. UGLY THINGS editor Mike Stax tracked down original guitarist JEFF BRISKIN, while at same time, Mike Dugo of found bassist MIKE RUMMANS. Slowly others were found… STEVE DIBNER, DON SILVERMAN, and former MAY WINE lead singer TOMMY McLOUGHLIN. For the first time in almost 45 years the guys rejoined other 1960s Sunset Strip rock musicians and… THE SLOTHS were re-born. The Sloths are performing their garage punk set list in the exact 'show band style' as they did in 1966, and their original single MAKIN’ LOVE has just been re-released on vinyl. Over the last two years they've headlined at over 60 venues including Mr. Ts, The Bullet/Hollywood Studio Bar, Johnny Whiteside's Messaround, The Soda Bar & The Eleven in San Diego, Rockit in San Francisco, and The Stork Club in Oakland, garage rock festival 'Debauch a Reno, Norton Records Benefit at the Echo and New Orleans' 'Ponderosa Stomp Music Festival'. In December 2013 they headlined the PURPLE WEEKEND in Leon, Spain. THE SLOTHS are currently TOMMY McLOUGHLIN (lead singer), MIKE RUMMANS (bass guitar), MARK WEDDINGTON (guitar), PATRICK DiPUCCIO (guitar) and RAY HERRON (drums). SUN DOG HOLY GLORIES

SISTER 03-17-2015 Tuesday, March 17th Doors at 8 Music starts at 9 PM Pre-sale price $10 This is going to be fun! Merchandise : (4AD) Merchandise is a band fighting against the easy categorization reserved for abbreviated biographies. The project is equal parts punk misanthropy, maudlin balladeering, fine art, low humor, classical study, psychedelic spacecasing, mad science and pop genius. Formed as a trio in Tampa, Florida in 2008, the band has undergone ceaseless revision and reinvention. After putting out numerous records and tapes on independent punk labels and touring the underground, the band truly hit its stride with the release of their second LP Children of Desire in April 2012. In addition to a very warm reception from fans, the record received praise from the likes of Pitchfork, NME, Spin, and numerous other critics and journals. 2013 saw the band releasing Totale Nite on Iowa City’s Night People label and touring extensively throughout America and Europe. Merchandise’s first album for 4AD, After The End, will be released on 25th August 2014. Power Trip: (Southern Lord Recordings) Formed in early 2008, Power Trip draw from the sacred texts of classic hardcore, punk, and metal. After the success of their self-titled Lockin’ Out 7”, Power Trip has unleashed their debut LP MANIFEST DECIMATION, out now via Southern Lord Records. Surging with a modernized translation of the works of mandatory crossover pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags. Exodus, Leeway, Sepultura, and more, Manifest Decimation hurtle the band’s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with thirty-five minutes of crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite. Recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck, and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon’s Gate in Philadelphia, Manifest Decimation wages war on all in its earshot, with nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence. In the wake of their rabid live shows, images of impending doom and destruction have become synonymous with the name POWER TRIP

SISTER 03-22-2015 As practitioners of a “non-traditional” interpretation of afrobeat for more than a decade, Chicago Afrobeat Project frequently reinvents itself within a genre first pioneered by Fela Kuti. The group’s latest release Nyash Up!” shows the group redefining their signature version of afrobeat by incorporating elements of hip-hop, orchestra-like musical arrangement, and stylistic explorations of rock, jazz and funk. In 2014, the group ups the ante by collaborating with master afrobeat drummer Tony Allen on a studio release slotted for late in the year. The two artists first collaborated in 2013 on a series of Midwest summer concerts and plan to work together in the U.S. in summer 2014 as well. As a genre, the success of the Broadway musical Fela! and a growing interest in the music has made afrobeat a widely-known sound around the world. Elements of the music are pushing their way further into more diverse and mainstream outlets with a widening array of successful artists such as The Roots, Janelle Monae, Vampire Weekend and drawing influence from the sound. Chicago Afrobeat Project embarked as one of the first nationally touring American bands to take the sound to the masses. The band has mastered a sound that weaves the uniqueness of the Chicago music scene with a distinct western-influenced Nigerian style of music. The group performed with Seun Kuti (son of the late Fela Kuti) and featured Sahr (the original actor portraying Fela in the Broadway musical) as a part of the official Fela! musical kick off party in Chicago. In the past with artists the group has performed with notables such as Bill Kreutzman of the Grateful Dead, Jeff Parker of Tortoise, Paul Wertico, Steve Kimmock, Sugar Blue, Howard Levy, and many others. Chicago Afrobeat Project channels this immense momentum to every performance. The band’s reputation as delivering a stellar live performance translates to group’s new “Nyash Up!” album as well, with critics clamoring that it’s the groups best studio record to date.
