Now Hear This, Vol. VI

Play Youtube Video

You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension of A/V. This is the middle ground between mediocre and too-good-to-be-true, between something called "reggae" and the sound angels emit. You are traveling deep into the realm of rad tuneage. Next stop, Now Hear This!

Straight outta Oakl&

Zachary James Watkins and Marshall Tramell aka Black Spirituals bring "black resonance" to Spirit Abuse (1103 Fourth Street NW) tonight. Our interview "Postmodern Black Spirituals" yielded more insight than we could fit in print. For instance, the project's name originates from Watkins finding a dusty cassette in a closet; the recording within was a 1970s lecture by activist, scholar and singer Bernice Johnson Reagon on the roots music of black slaves in America. Black Spirituals tour in support of their forthcoming SIGE Records cassette Of Deconstruction. Five bucks gets you in to the most intriguing concert of the week. The sympathetic vibrations amp up at 9pm, and Bigawatt and Mesa Ritual open the show. I'll see you there.

On Sunday night at Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW), Geoff Tate's Queensrÿchefeaturing former members of Dio, Ozzy and AC/DCbrings a mishmash of nostalgia and brand-new heavy. Read Moss' Show Up! column to learn more about the drama surrounding Tate's physical and verbal abuse of his bandmates and consequent firing, the ensuing legal battle and future of Queensrÿche. According to our in-house metal expert, this show will not be a "pathetic and flaccid mockery of itself." Irish rock outfit The Voodoos open this all-ages concert, and presale tickets are $25.

Nuevomexicano wizardry

Last week in "Now Hear This, Vol. V" I hyped much-buzzed about hometown swervegaze idol REIGHNBEAU's inclusion in tonight's Nothng Forevr showcase at Burt's Tiki Lounge (313 Gold SW). Burqueño electro standouts BK Beats, The 1960 Sci-Fi Era and Nathan New round out the bill for this 21-plus vowel-eschewing celebration. The aforementioned artists begin casting sonic spells at 9pm, and there's no cover, man.

It's a family band featuring siblings Mauro Woody, Brahm Woody and Dhaveed Woody and kindred spirit Eric Wellman.

If you go down to Hammond

Steve Hammond's various projects have garnered a lot of ink in the Alibi over the years. His most well-known bands are twang-and-thrash trio Leeches of Lore and umlautcore outfit Tenderizor, but Hammond is a prolific solo artist and has also performed as Retard Slave and in Death Convention Singers, Knife City, Filthy Jim and Black Ale Sinners. His microlabel, Flying Midget Records, hosts releases from these projects. One of my favorite Flying Midget offerings is Hammond's Cover of the Month Series.

Tell it like it is!

Mike from Milwaukee on The Phantom Menace

I know we thought we could put all that Phantom-Menace-hating behind us now that we’re older and wiser and living in the 21st century, but that’s before I knew that nobody had really said everything that needed to be said about why that movie sucked … until now. Mike’s performance-art-cum-detournement of Episode I so richly deserves the viral success it has achieved that I am happy to help push that train some more. The whole 70-minute critique is up on YouTube, but we’ll skip right to part 2, which eviscerates the “story” of Ep. I, and includes this priceless comment:

“The new movies are about shoving as much crap into every shot as possible. This is part of the reason why I find the Special Editions so fucking offensive. Because you're into what's happening in the movie and they keep shoving more shit on the screen to distract you. It reminds me of a child waving his arms in the background for attention.”

Truer words = never spoken. (Thanks for the link, Jesse!)
