Tuesday, April 22 - MARISA ANDERSON

Marisa Anderson Marisa Anderson


  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

Combining boundless creative imagination with a deep reverence for American folk, blues and country music, Marisa Anderson’s guitar playing is fluid, emotional, dexterous and original. Signal to Noise magazine calls Anderson’s guitar work “Utterly fabulous”, TIme Out London refers to her playing as “Stunning…haunting and evocative”, Pitchfork calls her latest record, ‘Mercury’, ”Brilliant” and Wire Magazine says, “Her sound has strength in restless variety…Anderson’s playing is heartfelt and utterly American, free from grandstanding and steeped in respect for the old tradition.”

On ‘Mercury’, Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Songs like ‘Mojave’ and ‘Embudo’ evoke the American West, while ‘Galax’ and ‘Deep Gap’ are tributes to the rural mountain music of the South. “Mercury” picks up where Anderson’s previous acclaimed record “The Golden Hour” leaves off, featuring sixteen compositions for solo guitar and lap steel, recorded live in single takes, with no overdubs, looping or electronic layering.

Before landing in Portland in the late nineties, Anderson dropped out of college at age nineteen to walk across the United States and didn’t stop traveling for fifteen years. “Mercury” is a direct result of Anderson’s peripatetic existence, reflecting years of living in cars, tents and buses, traveling to Mexico with a circus, walking, hitchhiking and always playing guitar. She played guitar in the Dolly Ranchers and the Evolutionary Jass Band before going solo in 2009. In the past two years, Anderson’s music has landed her festival appearances in Europe and the United States and opening slots for artists including Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Devil Makes 3 and Sharon Van Etten. In August 2013, KBOO Community Radio released a split 7″ featuring Anderson and Elizabeth Cotten.

Anderson’s music has been featured on NPR and on soundtracks including ‘Smokin’ Fish’, ‘For the Love of Dolly’, ‘Girls Rock’, and ‘Gift To Winter’. Recent festival appearances include Le Guess Who, Creative Music Guild Improvisation Summit, Portland Experimental Film Festival, Sound & Music Festival, NOFest, Electrogals, Festival of Endless Gratitude, and PICA’s TBA Festival. Her writings on music and activism have appeared in Bitch Magazine, Leaf Litter, and in Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, the book.

She is KBOO Community Radio’s 2013 Artist in Residence and in 2012 Anderson was one of six artists selected for Signal Fire’s Afloat Residency. Anderson’s debut solo recording ‘Holiday Motel’ was a 2006 Outmusic nominee for Best Female Debut Recording. Anderson spent 2003-2011 working at the Rock’n’Roll Camp for Girls in Portland.

Smokestack Relics - Foot Stompin' Swamp Rock

Smokestack Relics can only be defined as a dirty swamp rock band.The two brothers sing about livin', lovin', dyin' and the hell down below. The band is stripped down to her bare essentials creating a raw roots feel. When they're not playing in Denver you may find them playing throughout the grand ol' South and Midwest, scrapin up enough cash to make it to the next show with coffee and cigarettes in hand.

They enjoy collecting dead bugs on their van's windshield and mud on the bumper while venturing from show to show.

Brunettes Not Fighter Jets - Ambient Rock
Brunettes Not Fighter Jets (BNFJ), Born in the summer of 2010, was formed by three brothers Braden Burleson, Eric Schneider and Jacob Bond. After jamming daily for months on end, the Trio moved into the realm of genres like Punk Rock, Ambient rock, and Fuzzed-out Rock n' Roll. The Brunettes, after working up a full set, started booking shows with local Dallas and Denton staples such as The Virgin ...See More
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Destroyer of Light is a 4-piece band consisting of Steve Colca on guitars/vocals, Keegan Kjeldsen on lead guitar, Mark Mars on bass, and Kelly "Penny" Turner on drums. As of now, a Self-Titled EP has been released for distribution digitally and soon vinyl providing 6 songs. With this release, they plan to tour, share, and promote the music in anyway possible. May the power of the riff compel you!

The Legend of the Bludded Head:
(as told by Gillian Hill at age 5)
So a man got into a car wreck and had to go to the hospital, but in the process he lost his body, and was bleeding through his head, hence becoming the Bludded Head.
Then the doctors gave him a bunch of drugs to try and save him, and the drugs turned him into a bleeding cloud. So now he is a cloud and he goes around and bleeds on people. His only friend is a flying cat.

Wednesday, April 30 - LIVINGSTONE


LIVINGSTONE, woody's revenge, matt ingram

  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

 Livingstone, three frenchies, but a sound straight out of a cowboy's boot, ZZ Top style.
And there's a scorpion in that boot ! His venom causes trances, hallucinations, beard growing and headbang tendencies.

Livingstone, or the story of beautiful guitars, oak drums and girls of easy virtue ...

In concert Livingstone is a voodoo mass, yelled at 120 miles an hour before the cops raid.

These three boogie-men distill their sound in a still smelling good the shaman's blues and his demonic incantations.
As if the Devil disguised as an apache pinup found an old mustache explorer on the banks of the Mississippi and handed him a beer saying: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?".

Formed in 2009, the band Livingstone released an eponymous EP in May 2012. Having the occasion today to record with the sound engineers Andy Lyden and Antoine Selle, Livingstone is also actively working on what will be, in 2014, the first album of the band. The first video clip from this album, 'Down On The Ground', is already out on the internet.

Woody's Rampage is a three-piece rock band currently based out of Denton, TX. Formed by guitarist Ryan Hall, bassist Alex Browne, and drummer Dave Whitlock in May of 2012 at a weekly gig at the Hickory Street Lounge; Woody's Rampage rocks, grooves, and soothes with the guitar-driven rock n' roll that is best displayed by their debut album
"On the Rays of the Sun".

Friday, May 2 - Ghetto Ghouls

Ghetto Ghouls Ghetto Ghouls

Ghetto Ghouls, DEEP THROAT, TBA

  • $6/$8 cover
  • 9pm doors

Have y’all seen Ghetto Ghouls lately? If you’re not in Austin, the answer’s gonna be no. But judging by their audience at Beerland a few weeks ago, which maxed out at 6 people, most Austinites would probably have to say no as well. Ghetto Ghouls have always been worth watching, but with the recent addition of Dead Spacer Garrett Hadden on bass, they’ve become a force. Part post-punk, part SoCal skater, the overall effect is somehow more Australia than Austin. Hopefully they’ll start updating their Facebook more frequently so you can know where to see them, but in the meantime, check out some semi-recent recordings here. Just be aware that these days, they’re even more exciting than these recordings are able to capture. - RUBBERNECK

Monday, May 5 - FROTH



  • $6/$8 cover
  • 9pm doors

Hailing from Echo Park, CA, Froth combines a forward-thinking garage rock sound with elements of shoegaze and psych-pop washed in the dreamy textures of omnichord and jangly 12-string guitar. Getting their start in 2012, Froth has quickly risen through the ranks of the Los Angeles DIY music scene, playing with the likes of The Growlers, Cosmonauts, La Luz, Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel, Mystic Braves and many more. Along with playing popular local events like The Growlers' annual Beach Goth Party and Burgerama, Froth has also gained exposure to an international audience after being hand-picked by Hedi Slimane to score the Saint Laurent AW14 menswear collection runway show. After releasing their debut album, Patterns, via Burger Records and Lolipop Records in the fall of 2013, Froth continues to attract new fans with their strong hooks and high-energy live show, and remains dedicated to exploring the sonic possibilities of their expansive psychedelic sound.

Thursday, May 8 - the holophonics

  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

"The Holophonics were founded in the fall of 2012 by Eric Daino, a veteran of the early 2000s East Coast ska scene, after relocating to Denton, TX to study music at The University of North Texas. Eric joined forces with former Orange County, CA rude boy and fellow UNT student Shane Reider and recruited bastions of the Denton math rock scene Harrell Petersen, Will Huebner, and Tyler Waguespack to fill out a compact yet extremely versatile ska lineup.

The Holophonics have played extensively varied shows throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area and beyond. The core of The Holophonics' formula is one of adaptability; as a DIY ska punk band, the group has burned through small living room shows from Denton, TX to Tacoma, WA and many locations in between performing songs from their debut original full length recording "Third Wave Undead" with blazing intensity and irresistible sing-along captivation. The Holophonics continue to build a following with their nostalgic recollection of 90's Third Wave Ska and recently opened for Voodoo Glow Skulls.

But The Holophonics have another angle on ska, and as a ska/reggae cover band with an ever growing catalog of 50+ rock and pop songs, The Holophonics are able to reach even larger audiences all around the world. The MaSKArades series of cover recordings is amassing a large radio and online following, and as a cover band The Holophonics have played live music venues and bars across DFW and the west coast, including performing for thousands as a featured cover band at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. Recently, The Holophonics gave a reggae cover performance in Sunset Beach, CA for Reggae For Reason, the charity organization dedicated to ending youth homelessness abroad run by Fully Fullwood, former bassist for Bob Marley and The Wailers.

Releasing 4 full length albums and 2 Holiday EPs in just their first year and a half, The Holophonics have a work ethic paralleled by few other bands. Eric self records and releases all of The Holophonics' material on Holophonor Records, his independent record label and home studio. Keeping the recording process DIY allows for lower overhead costs and quicker releases. The Holophonics put out their latest album "MaSKArades Vol. 5" on March 25th 2014. It is a tribute to New Jersey legends Saves The Day's 2001 classic 'Stay What You Are.'"

  • $7/$9 cover
  • 9pm doors

THRIFT STORE MOVIE SCORE: Justin & Christine are hardcore movie fans and gluttons for punishment. They started their podcast, Thrift Store Movie Score, back in 2013 after discovering a plethora of terrible movies at the thrift shop, and watching one of their favorites--Killer Klowns from Outer Space. By day, Justin is a motion graphics animator and Christine works in a school library. But as far as they are concerned, they are kitsch fans, movie makers, and treasure hunters.

dj john vella: john vella has been a dj for more years than he cares to admit or remember. He actually got his start in Denton while a student at what was then North Texas State University and later UNT playing at various clubs and house parties. He returns to The Little D to join us for Thrift Store Movie Score, bringing with him a night of Totally 80s music for us to get down to.
