FRI 2.7 - SAT 2.8 - Maha & The Lions presents GrowTwogether at The Depot Event Space - 12:00pm

Maha & The Lions presents: GrowTwogether Music Festival

The GrowTwogether Music Festival 2020 is an immersive sound therapy, massage therapy, food, arts, and music festival centered around Ayurveda and overall psychological, and physiological, well-being.

All of these efforts feature K9C.A.R.E.S. Incorporated: a registered 501(c)3 non-profit that pairs rescued animals with survivors of child abuse, domestic violence, and/or sexual assault. K9C.A.R.E.S. Inc. pays for the entire animals life (e.g. vet bills, shots, crates, toys, food, et cetera) and their team members train the survivors of abuse on how to train the animal to be an emotional support animal. Afterwards, and now with a marketable skill on training emotional support animals, survivors are worked with to apply and enter the workforce as an emotional support animal trainer.

The efforts of this festival also give to the community by:
♥ Providing the platform of a music festival for artists, therapists, chefs, musicians, healers, and visionaries to be a part and attain their dreams to heal the world they see fit.

FRI 3.29 - The Messthetics (Dischord Rec / members of Fugazi) + Mary Lattimore - 9pm

Friday, March 29  Motorbreath Presents   The Messthetics  (Dischord Rec, featuring members of Fugazi)  Mary Lattimore / Harpist  + TBA  at The Wooly: 20 N Main Street, Gainesville FL 32601  Doors at 9pm, $12adv / $14dos (All Ages Show)   Buy Tickets   Tickets available at Hear Again & Arrow’s Aim Rec  The last time drummer Brendan Canty and bassist Joe Lally were in a band together, they were the rhythmic architects for Fugazi, an organization whose decade and a half of disciplined progressivism provided a necessary bridge between the zenith of late-punk expression and everything alternative in rock that followed. In 2016, the two were enlisted by guitarist Anthony Pirog in a conspiracy to subvert and reimagine the power trio, bringing fully into the 21st Century a form that may have reached near perfection with Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys on the very first day of the 1970s. With a self-titled recording scheduled for release in the Spring of 2018 on Dischord, the Messthetics will widen the reach of a decisive instrumental music that so far, they have only shared with a privileged handful of east coast and southern audiences. Across its eight original compositions and one cover, Anthony guides the sound through complex changes and harmonic densities that might compound, but never confound or muddy its connection with the listener’s body. Recorded by Brendan in their practice space, the group’s debut gives Anthony ample opportunities to swap guitar textures and styles as freely as an octopus changes patterns. Brendan’s kit has a big heavy bell that he brought back from the Fugazi days. He maneuvers through this rhythmically shifty music with a fluid briskness that is periodically disrupted by the clang of his bell. Joe spent 8 years in Italy, among other things, woodshedding on eastern rhythms counted in 7 and 13, perfect preparation for the oddly-metered work of the Messthetics. He brings a rock-solid foundation to the groove at the same time playing a harmonic complement as ambitious and interesting as Anthony’s lines. Bands can be dangerous when their members have accrued enough mileage to see their chops season into something like musical wisdom. When that understanding has the rare opportunity to percolate through a collaborative environment founded in love and anchored in gratitude, well, then shit can get rather intense. Anthony Pirog writes difficult music because original music usually is. Yet the ideas that he feeds through the Messthetics, are embraced by the Canty-Lally time machine, not just with precision and nuance, but with soul, joy, and groove. These last three are, indeed, the big guns in this spiritual war that music must become in the post-Trump era. The initial concept was to mix noise/improv guitar with dance grooves – a kind of apocalyptic dance party where the beat keeps you moving, but the guitarist relentlessly terrorizes you. The first track, “Mythomania” retains elements of that posture, but as reality has itself become more daunting, Anthony – a fearless guitarist – has moved closer to his listeners, and is now willing to astonish without being so confrontational about it. That doesn’t mean the Messthetics in any way retreat from the responsibilities of a “hard” sound, just that its volume and edge never eat the bold structural ideas that define this new music. Anthony will even lubricate his tricky time signatures with energetic two-note riffs to keep the listener head-bobbing through the twisting structures. And when their collective voice is thick and heavy (like on “Crowds and Power”), it is neither ponderous nor plodding. Their performances and this debut recording have a lift and buoyancy that reflect back into the audience the love and gratitude at the foundation of this trio’s journey  — Dr. Thomas Stanley (aka Bushmeat Sound)

FRI 2.08 - Changeville Presents: AJJ - 9pm

Featuring  AJJ ! and more!  The Changeville Festival is a downtown music & arts festival featuring local and national artists united by a passion for social change. The two-day festival will take place at venues around the city's downtown such as Bo Diddley Plaza, The Hippodrome, High Dive, Wooly/Atlantic, Civic Media Center, Volta, & more.   Festival passes are available now at  changeville.us/tickets    Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, *AJJ* has released four full length albums since 2005. Their signature folk-punk sound oftentimes features deceptively upbeat instrumentals accompanying humorously macabre lyrics. It’s not unusual for AJJ songs about death, racism, and similar topics to be juxtaposed against a plucky upright bass line. Their Facebook description boasts, “We’re super good, I promise.” In an effort to relinquish any connection to former President Andrew Jackson and to avoid disrespecting Muslims, the former Andrew Jackson Jihad rebranded themselves to AJJ in 2016. “As the world changed, and as we changed as people, it just got more difficult to give a convincing answer for why our band was called that […] The act of striving to do better is a constant theme in our work, that’s where the name [change] was coming from,” frontman Sean Bonnette told AV Music.  Through a charity partnership with  Plus 1 , $1 from each ticket sale will be donated to two different charity organizations. Local organization Gainesville Girls Rock Camp and national organization CEEAS (Center for Educational Excellence in Alternative Settings) have been chosen as 2019’s charities. Changeville will also be collecting canned goods and donations for Peaceful Paths and Grace Marketplace.   Changeville is a two-day social change festival, in partnership with UF College Of Journalism & Communications annual frank conference in downtown Gainesville that brings together students, professionals and artists across a variety of platforms. The festival includes music, comedy, award-winning films, tech, poetry and discussion panels/workshops.   PLUS1 is an initiative that channels the collective energy of a concert to catalyze social change. By partnering with performing artists, PLUS1 raises and grants millions of dollars to high impact nonprofits addressing our most serious global challenges around Access, Equity, and Dignity. The work begins with a $1 per ticket add-on fundraising tool that makes fundraising simple and seamless. Beyond the dollar, PLUS1 supports artists as educators and advocates, fueling their passion, reach, impact. To date, PLUS1 has raised and granted over $7 million, and served as the connective tissue between over 150 artists, millions of their fans, and 100s of leading social justice organizations tackling global injustice.

Captive Eddies: Classic rock/Reggae/Blues/Folk/Funk/Classical bluegrass/Jazz

At age 13, the twin brothers, Leaf and Deva Blanchard, along with their childhood friend Jody Moore, began playing music together. At first, started as a race to see who could learn the fastest, soon became a life long ambition to create and share good music. After absorbing everything they could from the musicians around them, they found Richy Stano, who had just spent 10 years as a staff instructor at GIT (Guitar Institute of Technology). The three boys studied music under Richy for 5 years, simultaneously honing their unique styles and song writing abilities. Eddie Fields, an exceptionally talented blind drummer, joined the boys 12 years ago for a recording session. The chemistry between them was immediately evident and Eddie has been an integral part of the band since that day.

Presently, Captive Eddies pulls from of reservoir of over one hundred original songs and has performed at festivals and venues from Florida to New York to California, as well as many places in between. Their latest album, Simple Dream (released in 2014), features guest artists such as Byron House, Larry Atamumeak, and Brent Truit. Byron House has worked with a long list renowned musicians, including Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, and Alison Krauss. Larry Atamumeak is known for his work with Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck, and Sheryl Crow. Brent Truitt, who produced and played on Simple Dream, is a Multi-Platinum Grammy Award winning musician himself.

Captive Eddies’ music is rooted firmly in conscious lyrics that are not afraid to face the darkness in order to bring light to every aspect of the human heart.

Locochino: Funk/Rock/Jam/Psychedelic

Locochino is an energy-packed, crowd-engaging “Progadelic Jamfunk” band from Gainesville, FL. Their show has been described as an adventure, at times guiding you on a trip across the galaxy and at others inciting a celebratory rage that satisfies and inspires.

Formed in September of 2014 and climbing steeply from the band’s initial goal of “playing at least one show,” energetic fans pushed the band to new heights in 2016 when Locochino performed at Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, Suwannee Hulaween, Hometeam New Year’s Rally, Farm to Family Music Festival, and other multi-day music festivals in the southeastern United States. With new festival bookings continuing to reach more distant regions, Locochino shows no signs of slowing and continues to bring new flavor to each performance.

“[Locochino] takes you on a psychedelic whirlwind of sound that makes you feel like you’ve unearthed something new.”
— The Alligator
“I had seen Locochino once before, but based on this performance I clearly didn’t hear them, at least not properly. Because they killed it.”
— Scott Hopkins, Editor-in-Chief, Music Fest News

After being self-taught for many years, he came across Richy Stano working as a teacher at Santa Fe College (who has toured internationally with Bo Diddley, Mary Wilson (of The Supremes/Dreamgirls), Curb Record’s recording artist: Amy Dalley, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts, Trisha Yearwood, Chieli Minucci & Special EFX) and studied under him vigorously for one year. Taking the lessons from Richy, Maha continued to grow and take influence from the musicians of his community. He gathered most of this influence at Gainesville’s beloved memory: The Jam, founded by Blake Briand (key player for Locochino) and practiced everything he knew for those six years with these musicians. Originally started in April 2016 with Christian Caro and Maha, this project has grown far beyond just them. They have raised thousands of dollars in their efforts to be of aid to the Gainesville, Florida community and have sights to raise millions to aid everyone in need that they can reach.
ImagineTwogether is an annual music festival hosted by the members of Maha & the Lions, headed by frontman Maha.

Last year’s festival was named StrongerTwogether and you can expect a slight name change for each annual festival as it grows, though ‘Twogether’ will always be a part of the name. Why? It is derived from K9CARES Inc.’s motto – #StrongerTwogether.

This festival is to highlight the nonprofit: K9CARES Inc. and their efforts to pair rescued animals together with victims of abuse for both of their rehabilitation. Hence, the name Twogether represents the two parties that come together for healing.

The Healing Rose – Psychedelic/Sound Healing

The Healing Rose is an artist and holistic healer. These two disciplines inform her use of Touch Therapy, Sound Healing, and Energy Work. She fell in love with Crystal Singing Bowls the moment she discovered them in 2007. The sounds and vibrations emanating from Crystal Singing Bowls restore the listener’s body by opening, clearing and balancing each of the seven chakras plus the High Heart. It has been scientifically established that each of these chakras or energy centers are associated with a musical note or vibrational frequency. When added to a restorative yoga class or massage session the results are beautiful, transformational and magical. She is a massage therapy graduate of Florida School of Massage (FSM), a certified double practitioner of Thai Massage, and she has a Reiki certificate. (Non-touch healing) To sum it up, her healing is her art. Prana, her ex-husband, and her were partners from 2011-2018. They got married in 2014. They have had many life changing experiences, especially one where their life changed dramatically after a near death car accident. They invested in 3 crystal singing bowls ever since 2012, and she has been exploring the healing properties through these amazing instruments. They both have healed themselves and others in many ways. Now she is ready to share this gift to all at ImagineTwogether and to all in the world!!!

Sita Dial: Eclectic Gypsy

Appalachian born, Sita Dial, truly weaves her “fiddle” in and out of, down the holler, fiddling. But not really being labeled to play one way, she is constantly melding, Gypsy, Rock, Old gospel, and other worldly influences, in her compositions. Since 2003, Sita has been adding her voice and violin with an array of musicians. Mystic River, (classic rock) Chris Newman, (rock reggae) Foggy Creek, (blue grass) and Onyx (Motown/ Hard Rock), are just a few of her ventures on stage. Also as a farmer’s market gardener, and with her country Florida, swamp lifestyle, sometimes you can hear how nature influences her fiddling techniques. Be looking for more performances from Sita, as she says, she has only just begun.

FRI 1.18 - Lemon City Trio & Locochino - 9pm

Friday, January 18th The Wooly Presents:  Lemon City Trio  | Miami FL  Locochino  9PM / $10 ($13 -21)    LEMON CITY TRIO .......................................... Miami’s Lemon City Trio (LCT) is bringing a fresh new meaning to the word funk. Brian Robertson, 35, on organ; Nick Tannura, 28, on guitars and Aaron Glueckauf, 27, on drums are the musicians behind the funky jazz-soul sound that makes up Lemon City Trio. They met in Miami, decided to join forces to create a band and began rehearsing at a warehouse located in the Lemon City, a neighborhood in Miami that dates back to the mid-19th Century and overlaps now with Little Haiti. The Lemon City is said to have gotten its name from a lemon grove. The band was inspired to name themselves after the neighborhood.  At their recording studio, the trio created a new taste to the art of funk music. They honed their sound playing at local live music venues like Lagniappe House and Wynwood Yard. Over the years, the band's sound has evolved. Their new music has some rock vibes to their funk, which Robertson says is a “more of a geographical representation of the music scene in the city of Miami.” The band joined Sundial to talk about their start, their music and music venues around the city.

SAT 1.12 - 6th Annual Roe v. Wade Anniversary Show and NWL Benefit

The National Women’s Liberation - Gainesville chapter presents

6th Annual Roe v. Wade Anniversary Show

Join us in in an epic celebration of the power of organizing by celebrating the 46th anniversary of the Roe V Wade decision with bands, DJs, local community groups, guerrilla theatre and a silent auction!

Proceeds will benefit the organizing work of National Women's Liberation.

Doors: 7pm
Show: 8pm

DJs: Kelly Kochis & Mike Goston
Bands: Routines & Glitter Whiskey

Our right to reproductive justice has been consistently under attack ever since the Roe V Wade decision. Many believe it was solely this decision (via the Supreme Court) that gave us the right to abortion in the US when in reality it was the years of struggle and organizing and bold demands by ordinary people that won us the right to abortion.

Enjoy great music, hear from other local groups fighting for justice, and bid on amazing silent auction prizes, all while financially supporting the movement!

MON 12.03 - Guts & Glory Presents: Holidrama

Guts & Glory GNV is back to bring you a night of the holiday spirit from - uhhh, maybe a different angle. We've all got those strange holiday stories that involve gifts gone wrong, the black sheep of the family, or maybe the turkey that burned in the oven....again. Tonight will be a celebration of those tinseled tales, and we'd love to have you along for the ride!
