Tuesday, July 29 - I am the Albatross

I am the Albatross I am the Albatross

I am the Albatross, Animal Spirit, Black James Franco

  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

'Austin, TX based trio I Am the Albatross combines the backwoods mysticism of old-time American folk songs with the savage spirit of rock, punk, and psychedelic noise. Heavy Americana, Gothic Folk, Western Psych, or just plain Rock n’ Roll; call it what you will.

The songs of I Am the Albatross tend to explore the darker side of rural American mythology. They are filled with fringe-dwelling characters, wandering spirits and individualists with strange superstitions. “I spent most of my life in very small towns and rural areas in Virginia and New Mexico," says guitarist and vocalist Jesse Berkowitz. “Appalachian landscapes and dialects, and the deserts of the Southwest and Western American culture in general have all had a profound and influential effect on me. I want to make music that expresses the affinity I have for the types of characters that come from those places, and also to delve into my own personal relationship with America and American music.”
Storytelling is key throughout the band's songs, and the portraits painted by the lyrics are a defining element of the music. Sonically, the band pushes the boundaries of “rock.” Seemingly simple chord progressions drawn from folk tradition are thrown into dynamic and complex song structures and arrangements.
The band released their first recording, a five song self-titled EP, in March of 2014. It is nothing less than a visceral slab of rock, forged and wrought onto two-inch tape during a whiskey fueled session over a few days in the brutal Texas summer.
Thunderous and primal drumming, snaking riffs and ghostly harmonies. Five raw tracks which tell of the coming end, the sting of endless labor, the Devil and his angels, and the burdens of all lost and lonesome souls.'

Promoter Promoter

direct hit, guerilla poubelle, stymie, half truths

Direct Hit is a band from Milwaukee, Wis. and Chicago, Ill. Nick and Devon sing and play guitar, Danny plays drums, andSteve plays bass. We've released two LPs, five split 7"s, a split 12", a box of tapes, and a whole lot of dumb stuff on the internet. We accidentally wrote a catchphrase some people know, behave like children, and take everything really seriously. Fuck you.

A three piece French punk band from Paris. They played more than 600 shows all over the world and sold more than 20000 copies of their first album ! Nevertheless they always kept their honest DIY ethic and political commitment. They run their own independent record label, always supporting local punk scene, promoting punk shows in Paris…
The band just released their new album "AMOR FATI", a radical collection of pessimistic but catchy anthems in French about boredom, depression, the pain of getting older, wasted friendships… all of this wrap up with a bitter aversion to this selfish and apathetic society.

Stymie and Half Truths are DENTON TX PUNK ROCK.

Tuesday, August 5 - cadaver dogs

cadaver dogs cadaver dogs

cadaver dogs, stray nimbus

  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

Cadaver Dogs are too much. Too provocative, too outrageous, too wicked, too scandalous, just too fucking much.

You know the feeling. It's four in the morning and your head is spinning, you can't tell if you're in a room full of people or all alone. All you know for sure is that there's a line on the table, a rolled up dollar bill in your hand, and a decision to be made. Let the Dogs give you a little advice. Do too much.

We're not talking about a band here, we're talking about a barbaric two-headed rock hellion, as likely to break your teeth out with a bottle of Jägermeister as it is to make your toes tap or your ass shake.

With three studio releases of raucous, radio-ready rock and roll already under their belts, including their phenomenal debut full length, 2012's 'superloose', Cadaver Dogs are going in for the kill with the release of their brand new album 'TOO MUCH'. A mesmerizing myriad of brazen bangers and ballistic twisters that'll blacken your brain while whispering in your ear how much it loves you. Their first record as a duo, you'll swear you're actually listening to at least six musicians, a dominatrix, and a witchdoctor, but it's just two scurrilous mutts hell-bent on a good time.

And let's not forget their manic live show, equal parts blood, sweat, vomit, and flying floor toms. This is where the Dogs really run wild, each show a tumultuous lesson in chaos and excess. Having drug their filthy paws coast to coast sharing stages with Andrew WK, Foxy Shazam, Filter, Semi Precious Weapons, Valient Thorr, and more, the Dogs are prepping for their busiest year yet. The band will be carousing the nation with their batch of exhilarating new songs, looking for the weirdest party they can conjure up. They'll also be making stops at various festivals along the way including busting open the Carolina Rebellion Festival in Charlotte, NC alongside Rob Zombie and Avenged Sevenfold, as well as the inaugural Fashion Meets Music Festival alongside Cold War Kids, Circa Survive, and New Found Glory in their home city of Columbus, OH.
But most importantly, they'll be haunting your every thought, every dream, every delusion, every hallucination, like a parasitic devil forged in your favorite nightmare.

Feeling overwhelmed? Cadaver Dogs are just getting started and you're in their sights. They've got your scent, so it's already too late.

Too bad.

TOO MUCH.

GET DENTON WET!

  • $10 cover
  • 9pm doors

Who enjoys waiting in line to see their favorite band? Or even when you want to just hang out at your favorite bar? And It's worse when you get to the front, and you're made you sign a "membership" form just to get in..

If you've ever been out for a night in Denton, you know this annoying situation all too well.

And It sucks.

But you know what sucks even more than that?

DENTON, TX COULD BE GENERATING $700,000.00 IN SALES TAX REVENUES YEARLY WHILE CREATING HUNDREDS OF LOCAL JOBS IF IT WERE WET!

But we're not :(

Let's change that.

Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios and Dan's Silver Leaf are teaming up for one night to GET DENTON WET!

It's a flat $10 cover that gets you into BOTH venues to witness some fine local talent that calls this currently dry city home.

And all proceeds benefit Denton First, the local organization dedicated to getting it done.

Because explaining to out-of-towners why they have to fill out a membership in order to get a beer is embarrassing.

Tuesday, August 12 - Jerkagram

Jerkagram Jerkagram

Jerkagram, Mannequin Pussy, Black James Franco

  • $5/$7 cover
  • 9pm doors

From the destucto face melt of Lightning Bolt and Hella to No Age's dreamscape maelstrom to the brutal noise-rock of Xaddax, it's duo bands who are exacting the superior ear-gauging damage. Now the latest twosome to crash that noise-making fracas is Jerkagram, a Brooklyn via Connecticut pair of fraternal twin brahs (guitarist Derek and drummer Brent Gaines) who've been wreaking a Herculean cacophony since 2008. Jerkagram's just-dropped Let's Talk About Us is an epically complex and deafening beast of Pelican-ish arena-sized instro-metal riffage and Don Caballero-esque punk-jazz noodling combined with space-rock improv trips into the sonic netherworld. Yet, not all is serious in their universe: they cite Keiji Haino and K-Fed as artists they like and getting laid as a band interest. In other words, the brothers Jerkagram fuckin' rule. - Village Voice

one week records presents joey cape, Chris cresswell, Brian walstrom

"A One Week Record is ten songs that are recorded in seven days. The records are produced in my home studio. The artist is invited to my house to eat, drink, sleep and record music for one week. Given the limited schedule, there is no time to overproduce. The idea stems from my long-time love affair with demos. I am often disappointed with the big production that follows. I don’t want to hear what the studio sounds like, I want to hear what the artist sounds like. The goal here at One Week Records is to produce high quality recordings that are an honest representation of an artist’ creativity." – Joey Cape

You know him from Lagwagon, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes as well as Bad Astronaut, Joey Cape. Come see him perform as well as promote his brand new record company ONE WEEK RECORDS.

Chris Cresswell is from The Flatliners: http://www.oneweekrecords.com/chris-cresswell/

Saturday, September 20 - yonatan gat

yonatan gat yonatan gat

yonatan gat

  • $8/$10 cover
  • 9pm doors

A masterful guitarist, Gat recently won Village Voice's "Best Guitarist of 2013". His power trio is experienced on the floor inside the audience, tearing through "a wholly fresh fusion of psychedelic sounds and rhythms from around the globe, with nods to free jazz and served with an unabashed punk spirit". Gat's genre-bending and border shattering (quite literally) guitar assumes simultaneous lead and rhythm duties blending punk rock with Middle Eastern styles, backed by Gal Lazer's hard-hitting African-influenced grooves and Sergio Sayeg's (of Brazilian psychedelic rockers Garotas Suecas) melodic anchor.

"Monotonix guitar virtuoso Yonatan Gat has reinvented himself as a world-music riff maven" - Time Out New York

"Tropical psych-pop shredding" - Orlando Weekly

"Kaleidoscopic" - SPIN

"Gat’s Jimi-Hendrix-meets-Godzilla guitar tone is the instrument by which the band brings the arena-rock experience within your immediate reach and, because of the energy level relative to the scale, makes it more explosive and cathartic than anything you could ever see on a bigger stage" - NY Press

"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

Wednesday, October 29 - Secret Chiefs 3

Secret Chiefs 3 Secret Chiefs 3

SPUNE presents Secret Chiefs 3

Secret Chiefs 3 have switched in to high gear. Having just completed a national tour in October with legendary Italian Giallo Horror soundtrack masters, Goblin, they released their long-awaited “Book of Souls: Folio A” album in late November. Next they are touring the west coast in February in support of that new album, and, surprise of surprises, are doing so armed with TWO new 7” records in hand. These will be available in stores stocking through Revolver USA, but those attending shows on the band’s February tour can get them right away.

In truth, Secret Chiefs 3 is always in high gear. Most people don’t realize they have played well over 300 shows in 34 countries in the last seven years.

But with a long-labored-over album in the can (you can read about it in the expanded bio), and fresh supplies of oxygen in the lungs, fresh new surprise releases are bubbling up through the Winter pseudo-frost as if it were Spring!

This tour will feature the A-team line-up of SC3 familiars: Drums / Ches Smith (Ceramic Dog), Keyboards / Matt Lebofsky (miRthkon, Moe Tar), Bass / Toby Driver (Kayo Dot), Violin, Guitar and Trumpet / Timba Harris (Estradasphere) and Saz, Guitar and Keyboards / Trey Spruance (The Three Doctors, Mr. Bungle). The band is extra excited to be re-united in this configuration!

ADVANCE TICKETS: $15.00
DAY OF SHOW: $18.00
