Before even releasing their first album, U.K. bred four piece The Struts opened for The Rolling Stones in front of a crowd of 80,000 in Paris, got hand picked by Motley Crue to serve as the supporting act for their four last ever performances, and toured the U.S. on a string of sold out shows that demanded the band move up to bigger venues to accommodate their fast growing fanbase. Now with their full-length debut Everybody Wants, lead vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies reveal the supreme mix of massive riffs and powerfully catchy melodies thatís already slain so many adoring audiences around the globe.
The London Souls' unique reinterpretation of classic hard-hitting rock and roll formulae recalls elements of the past with an ever present boundless energy, fit to cement their place in the future. Tash and Chris have been nothing short of a best kept secret among New York City concertgoers since the band's formation in 2008, building a fervent and dynamic fan base leveraged by their ever substantiated reputation for consistently well rehearsed and impassioned, explosive live performances. The band's celebrated sound and spirit draws significant influence from the driving force of British rock pioneers Cream and Led Zeppelin, to billowing and bouncing funk and soul, to the layered harmonies and memorable hooks of The Beatles and The Hollies, to the contemporary psychedelia of My Morning Jacket among many more.
Cleveland powerhouse, Thaddeus Anna Greene will open the show.
Devo and the Subversive Politics of Rock - Presentation by Theo Cateforis
Holy White Hounds
Holy White Hounds is an apt name for the quartetís endearing but feral alt-rock. The moniker also conjures the bandís origins as small town underdogs who are rising to earn national prominence. When pressed on the significance of the handle, lead vocalist and guitarist Brenton Dean states: "We're dirty but we're not unclean. We're mangy, but you'd still let us sleep in your bed."
For young kids with guitars, prodigious musical gifts, and aspirations of being professional musicians, the distance culturally and opportunity wise between a town like Des Moines, Iowa and New York or Los Angeles can make dreams feels unattainable. But for the proud sons of the Hawkeye State in Holy White Hounds, itís their dedication to music and the alt-rock quartetís ultra catchy tuneage thatís bridging the divide. Now, the band announces its debut album, Sparkle Sparkle (Razor and Tie).
On Escape From Evil, Lower Dens' Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. The album sees Hunter stepping up and taking center stage, and emboldening every aspect of the band.
Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is strong. Melodies are potent and songs are physical. Lyrics are direct, frank confrontations with life's common crises. The album title is brazen, and along with the grimly funny title of lead single, ďTo Die in L.A.Ē, almost theatrical.
Lower Dens' 2010 debut, Twin-Hand Movement, was a stunning evolution of guitar brilliance and murky emotiveness, while its 2012 follow-up, Nootropics, was a stark, textured paean to experimental bands of the krautrock era. Escape From Evil marks a bold, monumental step forward for the band and the welcome manifestation of a singer we've never quite seen until now.
Car Seat Headrest
Car Seat Headrest began in 2010 in Will Toledo's hometown of Leesburg, Virginia. Needing a place of solitude (and soundproofing) where he could record vocals undisturbed, a 17-year-old Toledo set up shop in the family car. Toledoís catalogue is sharp, literary, and culturally omnivorous as it touches upon youth and death, love and depression, drunken parties and 2nd century theologians. Ever surprising, his lyrical imagery ranges from playful to sexually frank to sorrowful, often within the same song.
After relocating to the Seattle suburbs in 2014, Toledo assembled a lineup with bassist Ethan Ives and drummer Andrew Katz. Teens of Style is the first Car Seat Headrest album recorded with a full band, and the sound is vibrant and powerful, with a wide stylistic range.
