Music to Your Ears

Thursday is Overrun with All-Ages Shows—Get out of the house, already! There's a full night of under-21 music starting at Sol Arts (712 Central SE, 244-0049) where We Were Born as Ghosts will release their brand-spankin'-new EP, titled Winter. The Overnight and Southpaw round out a progressive indie rock-type lineup. Cover is $5 and doors open at 7 p.m. Next up, five-piece rez rockers Pueblo Revolt are playing the Blue Dragon between 8 and 10 p.m. Admission is ... free? I don't know, don't quote me on that. Then there's the My Bloody Valentine Party at Pulse at 9 p.m., where gothic/industrial kids of at least 18 years can explode into a giggling matrix of post-Valentine's dance fever. Renowned musician, animator, writer and toy designer Voltaire will headline, with local two-man electric riot Vertigo Venus opening. Tickets are $10 at the door, which also qualifies you for a ton of Voltaire goodies valued at over $100.

Music Magnified

Thee Fine Lines

with The Cherry Tempo and Shapes and Sizes

By Simon McCormack

Monday, Feb. 20, Burt's Tiki Lounge (21-and-over); free: Attention all Modsters and air-guitar-enthusiasts: Your rock 'n' roll fantasy has arrived. Springfield, Mo.'s Thee Fine Lines might look a bit bookish, but rest assured, they'll have you spilling your beer in awe as they drag you into a dirt- and piss-filled gutter of three-chord, louder-than-hell rock 'n' roll. Take "Louie Louie" and the Go-Go's "We Got the Beat," add distorted vocals and a healthy dose of youthful anger and you've got all the ammunition you need to wake up with six stitches above your right eye.

Dreeg CD Release Party

with Kev Lee and special guests David Wade, Pipes, Physics, Vengence and MZ Burd

By Simon McCormack

Friday, Feb. 17, Raw/Sauce (21-and-over): Dreeg, a.k.a. Steven Rodrigue, is eyeing musical stardom. Halfway through recording his first solo effort, Six Months of Solitude, the Dirt Headz standout quit his job so he could concentrate all of his energies on making it in the music biz. Six Months combines the catchy, female-sung hooks and synthetic drum beats commonly associated with mainstream rap and adds down-to-earth emo-rap lyrics similar to those of Atmosphere's Slug.

When I Say Wonder, You Say Bunzz! Wonder! Bunzz!

An interview with local celebrity Caleb Crump

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Caleb and I are standing outside of the office on Central posing for a photo after our interview, both giving the thumbs up, when a passing motorist shouts from his truck, "Caleb!" As one of our most recognizable local personalities, right up there with men like Ron Bell, Don Schrader, Steve Stucker and the mayor, the warm, polite and approachable self-promoting partyer from Baltimore says he gets this all the time.

Sonic Reducer

Test Icicles For Screening Purposes Only · Film School Film School · Delta 5 Singles and Sessions 1979-81

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Imagine yourself at a thrash metal show attended only by eurotrash, or a rave thrown by heshers—you'd get this band, which is a discombobulating marriage of noise rock, metal and dance punk. Harnessing the power of the Neanderthal, these Londoners have concocted an oddly attractive aural potion that, without a doubt, kills brain cells and will deeply offend Bernie and Madge up in the Heights.

EVENT HORIZON ()

“Gonna wear no socks and shoes”

World Beat Spectacular • Wagogo • folk, Latin, jazz, World • Da Terra Meiga • Celtic folk, flamenco • Rev The Music • variety

By August March
Black Friday can a time to sit back and ponder the grand mercies of one's life while quiet music plays in the background, a roaring fire warms one and plates of Thanksgiving leftovers lull your desires and dull your senses—that is unless you're one of those Alibi-reading folks that likes to rock out on the weekend. Active listeners can have their pumpkin pie and eat it too on Friday, Nov. 24, at Burt's Tiki Lounge! The big island of a club—in conjunction with Mariposa Music—presents a World Beat Spectacular that will help happy eaters dance away some of those turkey sangwiches and tamales that might otherwise render one unconscious for the rest of the weekend. Your blood will bubble and your feet will frolic to the sounds of legendary Burque band Wagogo. They'll be performing with Da Terra Meiga (a Celtic/Flamenco hybrid) and multi-media psychedelic outfit Rev The Music. The musical feast begins at 8pm, y'all.
