Denver, Colorado's acclaimed husband-and-wife pop duo TENNIS will be at Proud Larry's this Wednesday (9/1/10) to show off their undeniably loveable tunes. For the background story on Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore's 8-month East Coast sailing trip that started it all, check out this fascinating NEW YORK TIMES piece on the couple. And if you haven't heard 2010 highlight "Marathon" yet, hop on over to PITCHFORK for a listen.
Opening the show will be Taylor, MS avant-lounge singer DENT MAY (backed by his esteemed sidekick BOBBY CHIZZZ). Listen to his latest single "Eastover Wives" HERE.
"The space-time fluctuations between GOBBLE GOBBLE’s last hermetic flu-gaze sacrifice has eclipsed the infinitely-many quantum mechanical predictions. The 8-bit pop peculiarity has transcended into a neo-audible movement of Masonic proportions. On top of a dazzling live show, main songwriter Cecil Frena’s ability to funnel radio-pop insanity through a gnarled nozzle of chromatic-pop has aggrandized; jarring cut-ups, blasted synth workouts, and the crunchiest pop-riddums you’ve ever heard." - Weird Canada
Internationally acclaimed Huntsville rap duo G-SIDE will be headlining our BACK 2 SKOOL BASH this Friday 8/20 at Proud Larry's. PITCHFORK describes their sound as "a woozy, synth-based, bottom-heavy crawl that treats big-room trance the way OutKast and UGK records used to treat 70s soul." For a sample of their distinctly Southern yet innovative jams, check out G-SIDE's essential HUNTSVILLE INTERNATIONAL MIXTAPE.
Opening the show will be the excellent Jackson, MS hip hop groop B.O.M.B. SQUAD w/ special guests! Tickets are $8, and the show starts at 10PM sharp. See y'all there!
BUFFALO MOON of Minneapolis (via Ecuador and South Dakota) will bring their wonderful bossanova/psych/pop sound to RED STAR on Wednesday 8/18. Their forthcoming 7" single on the great MOON GLYPH (Velvet Davenport, PC Worship, etc) has been receiving widespread acclaim, which is well-deserved considering the tropical perfection of its b-side "Low Tide Moon" (available HERE).
CHELSEA BOYS (also of Minneapolis) will be opening the show with their highly energetic synth-pop. The MN DAILY describes their performance as "a splash of Nintendo, a dollop of cocaine, a sprinkle of Black Flag and an ocean of sex," so in other words you're insane if you sleep on this one.
DJ HARRY LOUCHINS (of Airships) will man the virtual 1's & 2's, pumping out global synth and disco grooves between sets.
"Rayon Beach take us on an incredible ride through surreal soundscapes and off-center arrangements, and pull it all together under a tight black umbrella, soaked in afterbirth and glowing like weird moon rocks." - Hozac
