Dwight Smith developed his catalog of songs while roaming The Americas over the past decade--from the wetlands of southern New England to the deserts California, from the snow capped volcanoes of Alaska to those of Peru--an itinerant bard and restless sojourner in search of community and creative purpose as potent antidotes to the modern specters of estrangement and spiritual atrophy. His work has been called "haunting and delightful" (Terrascope), "wise, sobering, refreshing" (The Freequency), and "a fascinating personal take on folk" (Folk World)

The amoebic orbit of Smith’s voice swings between the gravities of Jeff Mangum, David Longstreth, Tim Kasher, and Tallest Man on Earth. His finger picking style and chord diction recall such disparate influences as Seu Jorge, Erik Satie, and Nick Drake. He will be performing songs from his forthcoming release on punctum records.

Friday, January 30 - yonatan gat

Yonatan Gat and his band are doing something you will not see anywhere else. The power trio sets up on the floor of every venue from giant clubs to basements—DIY style among sweaty dancing bodies—playing intricate improvisation sets that channel "everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n’ roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the ‘60s," (The Bay Bridged)
Gat's reverb-drenched guitar offensive takes simultaneous lead and rhythm duties, backed by Gal Lazer's hard-hitting African-inspired grooves, and Sergio Sayeg's (of Brazilian garage rockers Garotas Suecas) pumping bass.

"Kaleidoscopic, a cosmically minded and punk-grounded improvisational journey" - SPIN

"Best Guitarist in New York, 2013" - Village Voice

"Monotonix guitar virtuoso Yonatan Gat has reinvented himself" - Time Out New York

"Yonatan Gat makes music that has no home. I say that because the guitarist and his band create a sound that is from seemingly everywhere and specifically nowhere at once, channeling everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n’ roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the ‘60s" - The Bay Bridged

"A stew of Brazilian psych, pan-African rock, explosive punk, and outre lo-fi indie. Gat leads you through his music's many changes with guitar playing so wildly inventive and freewheeling that it sounds like he's making it up as he goes."- Chicago Reader

"While Monotonix exploits every cubic inch of a venue with vigor, Gat seems to want to scour every corner of the world, with equal intensity" - Chattanooga Pulse

"More explosive and cathartic than anything you could ever see on a bigger stage" - NY Press

"A surprise musical miracle. Watching Yonatan Gat and his band perform will blow your mind. The former Monotonix member’s live show leans heavily on improvisation and borders on performance art, incorporating signature lighting and expelling an incredible barrage of sound. However, one of the most enjoyable parts of a Yonatan Gat show, especially if you’ve seen the band before, is watching the new listeners, the unsuspecting folks who happen to be at the bar on a mid-week night, as the show unfolds. One guy in the front row stands with his hand on his jaw, staring, transfixed. Another rolls his head around his shoulders in synchronicity to the jolts of the song, occasionally rocking forward suddenly to accompany sudden musical shifts; with a shocked expression, his eyes look like they might burst from their sockets. Yonatan Gat is currently performing one of the most incredible sets in small to medium venues. - Pop Press International

Cola Kids Hanging Out in the Bubble
Dome reeks of that distinctive "punk
gone wrong" scent. While remaining
strongly rooted in the stripped down
three chord garage punk structure,
there is an underlining weirdness that
is hard to pin point. A weirdness that
only comes from writing your own rule
book and then breaking every single
goal you've set for yourself. This
record epitomizes the look and feel of
creating for the sake of creating. (and
getting it done as quickly as possible.)
Armed with a four track and few
borrowed instruments, Cola Kids
Hanging Out in the Bubble Dome is an
example of what can happen when too
many resources are too readily
available. Yet still remain self
contained.
This record didn't just come out of nowhere though. Adam Widener had spent a
considerable amount of time playing in a variety of punk and garage bands
through the years starting with The Jet Set and then eventually taking a
multitude of roles in bands like Plexi 3, The Zygoteens, and most currently, Bare
Wires. It was after his tenure with Bare Wires that he decided to strike out on
his own and make the music that he liked and wanted to hear.

"I had a ton of songs and demos under my belt, but no real outlet for them. All
the other bands I've been in, I've always played the 'back up guy'. So there
wasn't much room for my contribution." After moving to the Bay Area from the
Midwest in the summer of 2010, Adam began putting his songs on tape. "I had
been writing a lot of stuff, but it wasn't until I started recording them did the
prospect of releasing a record come into play. It was all pretty spontanious. Hell,
more than half this record was recorded in a Los Angeles motel room. After
Zabby and Big Action stepped in, everything fell into place. I'm not making these
records for anyone but myself. It's not meant to be taken very seriously. I mean,
isn't that what punk rock is?"

Bators.

Jonathan Richman and Tommy Larkins make their long awaited return to Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios!

If you've seen Jonathan Richman and Tommy Larkins here before, you'll know this is a definite "do not miss".

If you haven't seen him here before, it's high time to get out to see one of the consistently great showman (and bonafide music legend) that RGRS has ever been lucky enough to have grace our stage.

LIVE! ON STAGE JONATHAN RICHMAN featuring TOMMY LARKINS on the drums!
Denton, TX at Rubber Gloves on February 24, 2015
$12 (all ages)
doors @ 9pm.

+++++TICKETS GO ON SALE FEB. 1ST!+++++++++

Jonathan Richman has been writing songs, making records and performing live for most of his life, winning fans and making friends around the world with his guileless honesty and playfully catchy compositions. He’s revered by countless fellow artists, and has built a remarkably loyal international audience through his tireless touring. His deceptively straightforward songs embody timeless qualities of humanity, optimism, emotional insight and a boundless sense of humor, untainted by cynicism or transient notions of hipness.

The records that Jonathan Richman has made over the past 30 years have long held a special place in the hearts of his fans. He began playing guitar at the age of 15, and in the early 1970s formed the Modern Lovers, whose raw, minimalist sound and emotionally forthright songs helped to lay the groundwork for punk rock. But by the time the group’s landmark debut album (including the much-covered “Road Runner,” a Top Five single in Europe) was released in 1976, Jonathan had already moved on to a quieter sound and a gentler lyrical focus. Since then, he’s continued to record and tour prolifically, first with a series of Modern Lovers lineups, later on his own, and eventually as a duo with drummer Tommy Larkins. Over the years, Jonathan’s music has absorbed a multitude of influences, from doo-wop to country to a variety of international styles, without sacrificing the artist’s effervescent personality.

Jonathan’s fans have remained fiercely devoted over the years, and his audience expanded substantially in the 1990s, thanks to his frequent guest spots on TV’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, his prominent appearance in the 1998 film comedy smash There’s Something About Mary, and the inclusions of his Modern Lovers classics “Ice Cream Man” and “I’m A Little Airplane” on Sesame Street.

For much of his career, Jonathan has toured almost almost nonstop around the world. “Traveling and playing for new people in new places is one of my favorite things,” he notes. “It’s great playing places that are off the beaten track. You can learn a lot when you play in a little town in Holland or Western Australia, and you learn different things than you would learn playing a big city. This year we’re going to try to play in Extremadura, which is the southwest of Spain–we might become the first American entertainers ever to play there. I’m hoping that we can able to play the Canary Islands soon.

“Playing shows and making records keeps been getting easier and more fun,” Jonathan states, adding, “Me and Tommy play totally different than we played two years ago. We already play a different style than we played on that live DVD, and the way we played then was totally different from the way we played three years before that. I still feel like we’re just starting out, and I still learn new stuff every night.”

Daniel Markham (Denton, TX)

The Big Takeover
“…recalls Matthew Sweet if he had been a little more into Crazy Horse and Big Star had dug on Black Sabbath.”

Dallas Observer
“Markham’s deft handling of such universally inspiring themes as heartache, anger and uncertainty make for a new album of infectiously relatable songs that beg to be played on repeat.”

Bucket Full of Nails
“Almost a genre unto himself, Markham has again issued a focused rock and roll missive that’s loud and boisterous when needed without sacrificing production and musicianship.”

Wednesday, April 22 - waxahatchee

waxahatchee waxahatchee

who loves the sun presents waxahatchee, the goodbye party

Tickets will be $12 presale: http://prekindle.com/promo/id/23543011515603465

and $14 day of show

Named after the lake not far from her parent's house in Alabama, Waxahatchee is the name of D.I.Y. songwriter Katie Crutchfield's band, which began in 2011 as a solo project, appearing first in the form of a split cassette with Chris Calvin. Katie had been writing songs since her early teen days and was playing with her sister Allison in the scrappy punk group P.S. Elliot for a time. That group disbanded around the time of a serious breakup, and Crutchfield stole away to her parent's country home where she recorded the songs that would become Waxahatchee's lo-fi debut full-length, 2012's American Weekend. The confessional if somewhat brittle songs on the project's debut gained Waxahatchee more exposure, and Crutchfield began performing in and around Philadelphia, where she now lived. She assembled a band to back her up live, and in 2013, the sophomore album Cerulean Salt was released to largely positive critical review.
