Synopsis:
After his attractive fiancée is cut into pieces in a freak accident involving a lawnmower, aspiring mad scientist Jeffrey Franken is determined to put her back together again. He sets about reassembling his girlfriend using parts from a variety of New York prostitutes. However, his bizarre plan goes awry when his reanimated girlfriend no longer wants just him, but for money will take on anybody, and afterwards try to kill them.

Thursday, February 18 - Busdriver

Busdriver Busdriver

Busdriver, S.Good, Tornup, Terrence Lindsey

Busdriver is fixed as one of LA music's most dynamic indie artists. From his years as a cypher phenom at Project Blowed to his years as a recording artist on Epitaph to his current role as co-head of Hellfyre Club, Busdriver has always challenged rap in the most particular and thoughtful of ways.

BD's first record, 'Memoirs of the Elephantman', was self released thru Afterlife records (a Project Blowed subcrew at the time) in 1999. Not until his second self-released record, 'Temporary Forever', came out in 2002 did Busdriver step on the world stage. Sleeper hit 'Imaginary Places' turned him into one of main beacons of left-leaning hip-hop at that moment. During this time he was also emceeing at the Hiphop/Drum'n'bass night Concrete Jungle with Daddy Kev, Myka 9, edit and DJ Hive. After the new success of Temporary Forever, Busdriver signed with Mush records to do a collaborative album with beat/production guru Daedelus and quirky rap talent Radioinactive in 2003. The project was called 'The Weather'. Their album toyed with daringly disjointed production and dexterous rap, writing in a way that Busdriver hadn't in the past. The project amassed a small cult following all its own and aligned Driver's taste with the output of LA's electronic music scene. In 2004, Busdriver began his relationship with Big Dada by releasing with them the Daddy Kev-produced mini-LP, 'Cosmic Cleavage'. This was followed by Busdriver's official 3rd album, Fear of a Black Tangent, released via Big Dada in the EU and on Mush in the US. Busdriver's label dealings grew outside of the rap arena in 2007 when he signed to indie-punk mega-label Epitaph and eventually, it's more indie-music driven sister label, Anti-. Through them he released 'RoadKillOvercoat' in 2007 and 'Jhellibeam' in 2009. Both albums featured production from Dj Nobody, Nosaj Thing, Free the Robots and Boom Bip. During these years, rap producer culture was in flux in LA and the newly founded Low End Theory began gaining momentum. Producer eDIT (who becomes the head of Glitch Mob) featured Busdriver on 'Crunk De Gaulle' (also featuring TTC) off his Alpha Pup debut, Certified Air Raid Material. Computer Cooties came out in 2010 after BD parted with Anti-. It was a free mixtape featuring collaborations with Flying Lotus, Anti-Pop Consortium, Sister Crayon, Daedelus and Open Mike Eagle. He followed this by joining Hellfyre Club and forming Flash Bang Grenada, a two-man group made of Nocando (founder of Hellfyre Club and original resident of Low End Theory) and himself, created solely to let their musings on popular rap themes run amok. They released their debut '10 Haters' in 2011. In 2012, Driver released Beaus$Eros through Fake Four. The album was produced entirely by Loden and had features from Cocorosie and Mike Ladd. It was a departure from rap writing into microclimates of experimental pop. The record was coupled with Regan Farquhar aka Busdriver fronting a progressive power pop outfit briefly called Physiccal Forms. That same year Driver released Arguments with Dreams, an EP marking a return to Big Dada. It was mostly self-
produced with stand-out appearances from Das Racist on "Firehydrant" and HFC members Nocando and Open Mike Eagle on "Wernor Herzog".

In 2013, Driver helmed and oversaw the production of Dorner Vs. Tookie, the joint mixtape featuring efforts from all the members of Hellfyre Club (Nocando, Busdriver, Open Mike Eagle, milo, Rheteric Ramirez, Kail, VerBS, Taurus Scott, The Kleerz). While doing this Busdriver completed his 8th proper studio album, Perfect Hair. The album features production from Mono/Poly, Jeremiah Jae, Great Dane, Kenny Segal and Riley Lake with guest performances from Danny Brown, Aesop Rock and Mike Eagle. A follow up mixtape from Hellfyre Club in collaboration with producer collective Team Supreme is planned for 2014.

More recently Driver has done collaborations with Modeselektor, Son Lux, Latyrx, Kool AD, Lapalux, Sonnymoon, P.O.S, and others on various albums.

Rareluth sounds like the type of band that should have made its way onto the soundtrack for the movie Drive. Throughout their debut Demo, lead singer Christine Peirce releases her ghost-like vocals over twinkling synths and a dynamic rhythm section. Living proof that great synth-driven bands are not exclusive to the big cities.

Monday, February 29 - The Toasters

The Toasters The Toasters

The Toasters, Madaline (CD Release), Johnny's Big Red Rocket, Big News

The Toasters, are "Ska Pioneers" (Billboard magazine) and boldly go where no ska band has gone before. Having been compared to the Ramones, due to their longevity and adherence to core principles, the Toasters are held to be one of most influential ska bands out there. Their lean, mean ska machine has galvanized audiences and musicians alike with their embrace of the Jamaica-born pop music style that overwhelmed England in the 1960's, migrated to America in the early 1980s, and went global in the 1990s. The hallmark Toasters sound sits at the nexus of Reggae, Jazz, Punk and Soul and is the musical equivalent of a brass knuckle-duster.

Formed in New York City by British guitarist/frontman Rob "Bucket" Hingley in 1981, the Toasters exploded onto the Lower East Side scene. Cutting their teeth with a residency at legendary clubs like CBGB and Danceteria, the band has defied gravity and industry skeptics alike by staying true to their original 2-Tone ska roots, whilst logging over 4000 globe-trotting live appearances.

Longtime fans and critics agree, the current "International All-Stars" posse (featuring members of some of the world's greatest ska bands) is one of the most formidable in The Toasters' long and chequered history. Along with the irrepressible Bucket on lead vocals and guitar, The Beat's Andy Pearson is featured on bass. Expect to see Neil Johnson (Planet Smashers) and Tommy Quartulli on saxophone (The Allstonians), Greg Robinson (Mephiskapheles) on trombone and Jesse Hayes (Westbound Train) on drums. Special appearances by Arjen Bijleveld (Rotterdam Ska-Jazz Foundation) and Buford O'Sullivan (Easy Star All-Stars) are also to be expected in 2009. Legendary keyboardist Dave Barry rounds out the posse.

As the founder of Megalith Records (and former boss of the legendary Moon Ska Records, the most influential ska label of the 1990s) the Toasters' leader, Rob "Bucket" Hingley has a ska resume that trumps virtually anyone else in the business. With the aid and support of likeminded musicians such as producer Joe Jackson, who has worked with the band over the years, he has been able to compile a recorded legacy and a songwriting catalog. Among the many ska classics Hingley has penned: "Weekend In L.A.," "Matt Davis," "2-Tone Army," "Social Security," "Dub 56"—and the list goes on and on.

In the commercial realm, the Toasters have recorded jingles for AOL, Cisco Systems, Miller, Anheuser-Busch, and Coca-Cola, and have contributed to movie and television scores (Bleached, Bang!, MTV's Wildboyz, Mission Hill, Kablam!, Showtime's Brotherhood, etc.). Where Bucket and The Toasters truly excel, and live up to their reputation as one of the greatest bands of all time, however, is on the road. Averaging more than 200 performances a year, the band is well on its way to playing its 5,000th gig, a milestone they should achieve by the end of the decade.
Toasters fans from all over the world have known for a long time that their favourite ska band is the coolest group around, a true classic. Now, it's time for everyone else to catch up, and get hip to The Toasters!

Tuesday, March 1 - Pale Dian

Pale Dian Pale Dian

King Camel presents Pale Dian, Psychic Killers, Wave Swinger, Honor System

  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

Pale Dian (FKA Blackstone Rangers) clawed their way through North Texas’s urban mantle, finding the blood connections necessary to drink from their fermenting sonic emotions. The sacred marriage blends affection for modern electronic music with an urgent fetish for classic 4AD dreampop and noise. The orgy happens when swirls of orgasmic synthesizers embrace dripping guitars and tantric rhythms and pulses. Healthy doses of noise are always comforted by soft waterbeds of the ambient and dreamy.

After gaining regional admiration for their first EP (2012) and touring the U.S. with a stop at SXSW 2013, the trio set their sights on more touring and the release of “Descendent” (Saint Marie Records) in 2014.

Monday, March 14 - Julien Baker

Julien Baker Julien Baker

Julien Baker

Sometimes, things just seem to happen for a reason. The pieces fall into place in unexpected ways, and life takes a turn no one could have predicted. This rings strikingly true for the solo career of Memphis, Tennessee's Julien Baker.

For years, Baker and a group of close friends have performed as the band Forrister (formerly The Star Killers), but when college took her four hours away, her need to continue creating found an outlet through solo work. The intent was never to make these songs her main focus, yet the process proved to be startlingly cathartic. As each song came into shape, it became more apparent that Baker had genuinely deep, surprisingly dark stories to tell from her thus far short life (she turns 20 this fall). Tales of her experiences are staggering, and when set to her haunting guitar playing, the results are gut wrenching and heartfelt, relatable yet very personal. There's something wonderfully hypnotizing about Baker gently confessing her soul with such tremendous honesty.

At the prompting of a friend, Baker ventured to Richmond, Virginia to record a number of her new songs at Spacebomb Studios. The tracks from this session were circulated among Baker's friends, meeting high praise and lots of encouragement for the songs to see a proper release. Soon, she found a home on 6131 Records' increasingly diverse roster, and plans were made to release her debut full length, 'Sprained Ankle.'

To call 'Sprained Ankle' a happy accident would be misleading as to the nature of these poignant, emotive songs. Yet no one, least of all Baker, could have predicted she'd be releasing an album, especially as a solo artist. Thankfully, now the world will be able to share in her passion and sorrow.

Tuesday, March 15 - Savak

Savak Savak

Transmission Events presents Savak

The band SAVAK (pronounced "sah-vawk") was formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops. Their influences range from '60s Texas psychedelia to British pub rock to early-'80s American hardcore, with some Zamrock and Chicha thrown in for good measure. Savak connect the dots from The Adverts to Bubble Puppy to The 101ers to MDC, making stops at Chrissy Zebby Tembo and Los Mirlos along the route. Their first album is coming out later this year on Comedy Minus One.

Friday, March 18 - Daniel Bachman

Daniel Bachman Daniel Bachman

Daniel Bachman, Jared Caraway

Daniel Bachman is a 22 year old musician born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He has been playing what he describes as "psychedelic appalachia" since he was a teenager, releasing small run editions of tapes, CDs and LPs for the past three years, with a sound that evolved from drones and banjos to a now guitar centered focus. Touring off and on since the age of 17, Bachman has managed to cover thorough ground across the US, sharing stages with like minded folk such as fellow Fredericksburg native Jack Rose, for whom he fashioned the artwork for the posthumous release of 'Luck In The Valley'. His newest effort is the full length LP 'Seven Pines', sprung from a year living and working in the city of Philadelphia. The sound results in a combination of homesick worried blues and the ecstatic buzz of fresh experience and a new life in unknown territory. Familiar and known, but also seeking to access memories from lives past, dead and gone.

Saturday, March 19 - Advance Base

Advance Base Advance Base

Advance Base, Sound of Ceres, Fishboy

Advance Base is a new solo project by Owen Ashworth, formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Walking the line between electronic pop & more traditional singer/songwriter forms, Owen Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed tunes around his conversational, baritone vocals, using electric pianos, Omnichords, orchestral samples, & antique drum machines. The sound of Advance Base has been described as "depressed," "lo-fi," & "pop." The second Advance Base album, Nephew in the Wild, will be released August 21, 2015 on Orindal Records (US/AQ) & Tomlab Records (EU/UK). Advance Base is named after the Antarctic meteorological station & psychedelic death trap that nearly killed Admiral Richard E. Byrd during the winter of 1934.

Karen and Ryan of Candy Claws continue their exploration of dreamy nature discovered while transforming their sounds into a visual performance.

Sunday, March 20 - Prawn

Prawn Prawn

Prawn, Weatherbox, Pinegrove, Enemies, Wild Pink

Formed in Ridgewood, NJ in the summer of 2007, Prawn has extensively toured the US, self-released two EPs and one tour demo. The band self-released their first full length You Can Just Leave It All in June 2011 with Topshelf Records releasing it on vinyl that winter. The band followed up their first full length with an EP/LP entitled Ships in the summer of 2012 — which they made their first trip to Europe and the UK in support of over a five week tour. The band has continued touring throughout 2012 and 2013. A split release with Joie De Vivre is slated for a February 11, 2014 release and a new LP will follow later in the year.

Flipping through the pages of Weatherbox, A History, one encounters some sordid tales: strained friendships, hairs grayed, vans stolen and flipped, a good old-fashioned "cowboy-stomping" and of course, drug-induced psychosis. However, since the release of their seminal American Art in 2007, Weatherbox ignored every warning sign the cosmos hurled in their direction and released batch after batch of unique and personal songs via two LP's, one EP, two singles and too many compilation tracks to count. They have toured tens of thousands of U.S. highway miles with their friends in Say Anything, Cartel, The Front Bottoms and Bad Books. Now freshly signed to Favorite Gentlemen/Triple Crown Records, Weatherbox's future figures to continue being quite the page-turner…

Saturday, April 2 - Peelander-Z

Peelander-Z Peelander-Z

Transmission Events presents Peelander-Z

PEELANDER-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band based in NYC, was originally formed in 1998 by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red, and Peelander-Blue, after meeting in New York City (although they'll tell you they're all from the Z area on the planet Peelander). Peelander-Green was welcomed in July 2008 after Blue left the band.
Peelander-Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, CMJ and SXSW, and played with artists such as Buckethead, Electric SIx, Particles, The Vibrators, and Guitar Wolf. Peelander-Z has also been featured on TV programs like VH1's Best Week Ever, Comedy Central's Upright Citizens Brigade, Spike TV's MXC: Most Extreme Challenge, and Anime Network. They also often perform at Anime conventions and festivals all over the US, as well as at Kaiju Big Battel.
At their live show, you'll see the band in colorful costumes reminiscent of Japanese Animation, though they describe their outfit as their skin. Their shows guarantee intense audience participation and chance to exercise with the band. "Do human bowling with us. Do limbo dancing with us. Do karaoke competition with us. Hit our cowbell with us," says Yellow. " Don't be shy, give us your smile! We can beat your stress! See you at our show!"
One experience would capture you. Just pay attention to their coming activities.

They released a second EP, Benny and the Jetts, in 2011.
Their Debut Mixtape "The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle" was released through Das Racist's Greedhead label, followed by 2013's conceptual Lonely Women EP.
On June 5th, 2014. The group released their debut album "French Exit" with no warning for free on their bandcamp: http://tvgirl.bandcamp.com/

Saturday, April 16 - Slingshot Dakota

Slingshot Dakota Slingshot Dakota

Slingshot Dakota, Mimisiku, The Single Issues, Cheap Haircuts

Carly Comando and Tom Patterson are two people who carry the weight of an entire band. Their set-up is simple: Carly is on keys and Tom plays drums. They do things with these instruments that most bands can't do with a standard set up: they cram the sonic space they are in. Originally this was actually the case as they began as a three-piece featuring Jeff Cunningham and Latterman's Pat Schramm. But narrowing it down to a duo in 2006 did no harm; Carly's keyboard seems to take on the role of several more people as it adds multiple dimensions to their sound.

2008's Their Dreams are Dead, but Ours is the Golden Ghost was a seminal release for their entry onto the scene. With Carly from Long Island and Tom from the Lehigh Valley (PA), their home-turfs both came with built-in popular support as they romped the DIY all-ages show circuit. In it, they blew away audiences with their at-times more sober lines like "I'm gonna love you till the day I die" juxtaposed with moments of their swelling pop sound. When Tom isn't screenprinting (he does everything from gig posters to commercial ventures to fine art) and Carly isn't music licensing, they are refining their highly-anticipated album, Dark Hearts, set to come out this year.
