COLOUR REVOLT + DENT MAY & FRIENDS 10/31 @ Proud Larry's

Cancel any previous Halloween plans. Masters of angular post-grunge gloom COLOUR REVOLT (of Oxford) and self-proclaimed purveyor of good feeling vibes DENT MAY (of Taylor) are joining up for a special All Hallows' Eve throwdown.

Both acts have maintained a busy touring schedule this fall, the former following lineup changes and demo sessions in COMO and the latter in promotion of his debut album released earlier this year on PAW TRACKS. Colour Revolt, of course, are represented by Oxford-via-Water Valley-via-Oxford label FAT POSSUM. If any of y'all were at W.C. Don's on Halloween a few years back, you know this could get very interesting…. Tickets may be purchased HERE.

Hey Oxford, two of our favorite bands are playing at Proud Larry's on Tuesday 10/6. WAVVES (signed to MS label Fat Possum) began as the psyched out bedroom project of San Diegan Nathan Williams, whose hooky thrash-pop was unfortunately overshadowed by overblown gossip (fights, drugs, meltdowns, etc) on music blogs this year. The live show now features the amazing drum stylings of HELLA's Zach Hill (dude shreds), who recently contributed to the excellently epic 6-minute track "Cool Jumper."

Come early to watch openers GANGLIANS from Sacramento roll out the lo-fi psych-pop w/ awesome Beach Boys harmonies. Their album Monster Head Room on Woodsist is one of our 2k9 favorites for sure. Tickets are $7. Show starts at 9 pm.
