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!

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

Maha & the Lions: Spiritual Folk/Natural Soundscape/Mantra Music/Alternative World Music

The pride of lions hosts a different, unique, engaging, and immersive performance every time they play. The band features musicians that range from crystal singing bowls, handmade wooden flutes, water whistles, Latin-influenced rhythms, rain sticks, birdcalls, and conch-shells to all of the conventional instruments found in the Western world of music. This band features musicians from Gainesville/Brazil/Colombia/Native America and for this performance, it will be an 8-piece band headed by frontman Maha. The pride is oriented to play only for benefitting the community around them. They proudly commit to donating all payments given to them to nonprofits, the community, and causes in need. Maha began playing guitar at the age of 11 when his father passed his guitar down to him. 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.

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!!!

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.

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

 Friday, March 29  Motorbreath Presents   The Messthetics  (Dischord Rec, featuring members of Fugazi)  + TBA  at The Wooly: 20 N Main Street, Gainesville FL 32601  Doors at 9pm, $12adv / $14dos (All Ages Show)  -Tickets go on sale Wed, Dec 12th at 10am   Buy Tickets   (Local ticket outlet info coming soon)  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)

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

You make me feel like falling through.
I disappear, in my mind.
Boy Harsher return with their second LP Careful - a wild ride that celebrates abandon, while mourning attachment + love.

Boy Harsher began as an urgent need to produce and consume. In the winter of 2014, Jae Matthews and Augustus Muller started to experiment with sound, video, and text. The advent of Boy Harsher! Born out of this tumultuous relationship in swampy Georgia, their first EP Lesser Man is sexy as it is sulking. Lesser Man determined their morose, pop sound. In their second album, the full length Yr Body is Nothing, Matthews and Muller took that dark and ran with it. Both releases reflect the fervor present in their adolescent lust and anger. Yet, before Matthews and Muller recorded any song, their chaos made the project vulnerable and invariably lead to momentary destruction . In what was at the time believed to be their last performance, Matthews had “careful” tattooed across her back, while Muller fried the speakers. A lit candle was thrown. They were not on speaking terms.
At that time “Careful” was meant as a warning: the cautionary understanding of love. The duo felt as though they were disappearing within one another. But, if Boy Harsher’s first two releases narrated the pain and desperation that follows after something goes awry, then this LP, Careful, describes what loves gives you: fear and joy, tenderness and pain. For Boy Harsher, Careful attempts to detail the enveloping trauma of loss combined with the fantasy of escape (a reckless abandon).

Matthews and Muller certainly made amends since that fateful live tattooing, loud as hell performance, however both still have complex relationships to attachments. In 2017 Matthews’ mother was diagnosed with dementia and as the symptoms began to take hold the essence of “careful” became relevant in a new way. Matthews’ relationship with her parents has always been complicated: her father past away when she was a teenager and her mother is an alcoholic, consistently unpredictable with affection and stability. The loss of her father was extreme, yet acute, whereas the persistent sadness of losing her mother (the memories that defined their relationship) is a slow, chronic suffering. The trauma of losing someone is almost in tandem to Matthews’ understanding of love. It with these intensely personal struggles Matthews and Muller began developing their new album. With Careful, Boy Harsher use the medium of minimal electronics to create a compelling narrative of a deteriorating family and the reaction to run away from it.

Careful splits its time between songs that study the trauma imbedded within loss and the compulsion to flee. The track “The Look You Gave (Jerry)” is named after Matthews’ deceased step-father, who passed right before her mother was diagnosed with dementia. The song mourns Jerry, as described through her mother’s perspective: “I close my eyes and I can almost see: The look u gave / when u / you ran from me.” For Matthews the fiercest pain in relation to her mother’s disease is her mother’s loss of comfort, a grasping at an image that slowly fades away. Death for Matthews and her mother has become synonymous with abandonment. Not unlike the pain of losing her father, Matthews conceives the hollowness where intimacy once was - the melancholy of disappearance.

The message of “careful” also plays out as universal warning in these Boy Harsher’s tracks — do not be fooled, loss is inevitable. “Fate” describes the willing lover who knows that there is nothing their love can do to keep their partner. “Hi Hi / Oh No / In spite of me / you always go. Forget the crying / tempt the pain / hi hi / gone again.” In Careful affection vanishes as quickly as it arrives. To understand love, you must accept that it dissolves, leaving sorrow and disappointment in its wake. Yet, Careful reconciles the deterioration of love with the gilded expectation of escapism.

In reaction to these morose conditions, Matthews and Muller created multiple tracks that celebrate flight. Their fantasies in these bleak scenarios play out in the perspective of the runaway. “LA” takes this to a wistful degree. Slow swelling synths cut sharply with fast chugging drum machines as Matthews begs someone to take her away: to go down. The darkness exists in these reveries but in perverse extremes. Boy Harsher proves Careful’s variety with these uptempo club ready tracks that demonstrate escapism through vice and rave. With “Come Closer”, a nod to early EBM, Matthews beckons on top of a pulsing bass: “In the dark, you have nothing left, Let me take it”, the escape route is through another - gesturing to ‘come play’. Even the mascot of Careful, presented in the album’s cover art, is an imagined runaway. This character, stationed in a motel, or combing the beach with an overstuffed backpack, represents the embodied fleeing of Matthews and Muller’s desperate years. 

Careful marks Boy Harsher’s most dynamic album to date. The band expands upon the fine-tuned production developed in their last EP Country Girl, but with plenty of nods to the fast tempo and grittiness of Lesser Man. Matthews and Muller attribute the evolution of their sound to the extensive touring they completed in the last few years. “Traveling and connecting with people has been so fundamental;” Muller says “we’re really able to experiment with our material and it feels like the live set as grown into an entity of its own”. Boy Harsher embarked on two US and two EU tours this past year, where audiences recognize their set as faster, harder version of their recorded material. Careful was primarily written at home in Massachusetts, with just a handful of synthesizers and a laptop. For Muller a minimal set up is paramount to his process. Boy Harsher mixed the album in Italy with Maurizio Baggio of La Distilleria Studio
who had a big hand in finalizing the sound.

Boy Harsher emphasizes emotive sounds and evocative narratives to generate palpable material in their latest release Careful. Careful is a timeless and original minimal synth record highlighted by a strong narrative and marks the definitive return of the enigmatic duo.

FRI 10.19 - Radioactive Horror 5 Ft. Purge - The Circus Returns

https_%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F49851327%2F227277435871%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

The biggest Halloween party of the year is getting even bigger! Radioactive horror eventsGator Sound and LightingLucid Nightlife , and Contagious Concepts have teamed up to do one hell of a creepy event! 
```Costumes are encouraged!```

Main act: PURGE
The uniquely branded duo exploded onto the scene in September of 2016 with their debut release “Feel Your Love” via Skrillex’s imprint and media platform, Nest HQ. Receiving praise and support from Owsla, media outlets, and DJs alike. That EP evoked the initiation to PURGE’s genre-bending concept. They quickly grabbed the attention of listeners for exhibiting technical sounds and a haunting dark bass feeling in their music.

Since then, they’ve gone on to receive over 1.5 million streams on Spotify, made their festival debuts at EDC Orlando and Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival and have had their tracks supported by Steve Aoki, DJ Snake, Marshmello, Rezz, Slander, Henry Fong, Krewella, and San Holo.

The goal for PURGE aims to take a rebellious stance on electronic music by gathering their influences from genre-benders like Noisia, Skrillex and Flume for their creative attitude, which they aim to implement in their own concept. Their sets and mixes have been described as “intensely dynamic” with an extensively eclectic song selection throughout their sets. You can expect to feel every kind of emotion in their sets.

Releases on Nest HQ / OWSLA, New Noise / Dim Mak, bitbird, Insomniac Records, Elysian Records, and Firepower Records.

“…if they continue on with quality like the bass in this EP, we won’t be surprised to see some big moves from the new duo in 2017…” - NEST HQ

“…PURGE is a fresh new electronic act, set to take the scene by storm with their forward-thinking music production…” - Run The Trap

“…Purge is an act that you do not want to sleep on…" - Thissongslaps.com

”…There’s little info available on them, but what is abundantly evident is their level of talent and potential…“ - FUXWITHIT.com

***The Wooly Gainesville, FL --- Now to be known as the Radioactive Circus, will be transformed into a radioactive scare zone, with dead clowns and an atmospheric chaos of Bass and house music and a Full laser show, holograms, cryo, and LED production by Gator Sound and Lighting
This dark and eerie atmosphere will be even more than that, with dubstep and house pumping beats and a radioactive circus as the haunted zone. . Better be weary about what lurks in the shadows.

‘Criminal’, The Soft Moon's fourth studio album, is a confessional work. Through the stark lens of shame and guilt that has followed Luis Vasquez since a violent childhood growing up within the humming ambient sprawl of 80s Mojave Desert, here he documents the gut-wrenching sound of going to war with himself. Battling with his own sanity, self-hatred, insecurity, self-entitlement and grappling with the risk of these things transforming him into a person he despises, Vasquez has laid his feelings bare with this: his confession and most self-reflective work to date. “Guilt is my biggest demon and has been following me since childhood. Everything I do strengthens the narrative that I am guilty” Vasquez reflects. “The concept of ‘Criminal’ is a desperate attempt to find relief by both confessing to my wrongdoings and by blaming others for their wrongdoings that have affected me.”‘Criminal’ marks a striking and important chapter in his self-exploration, both artistically and emotionally. As a young musician living in Oakland, Vasquez began to try and process the narrative of his difficult upbringing veiled through musical exploration. Taking krautrock's motorik beats and Post-Punk deconstructions and honing them into a hushed percussive incantation, The Soft Moon's self-titled debut album took shape. The album was released in late 2010 by Captured Tracks and was praised by critics and emulated by contemporaries. In 2012 the apocalyptic conceptual work of Zeros emerged, shortly followed by Vasquez moving to Venice, Italy in 2013, acting as a catalyst for 2014’s release, Deeper. While previous albums were primarily instrumental records, where Vasquez’s voice was diffused amidst the music as another instrument, Deepermarked the beginning of a new musical direction where vocals and lyrics became something more than a mere presence. Deeper was a descent into the womb of childhood trauma, anxiety and fear, and although Vasquez survived this dark exploration of himself, he did not return alone. Working once more with Maurizio Baggio, who produced Deeper, at La Distilleria in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy, ‘Criminal’ sees Vasquez further explore putting his lyrics at the forefront and letting his raw emotions flow. The album begins with a confrontation with his true self through the torrid bass lines and searing vocals of “Burn”; a song evoking a loss of control akin to demonic possession, stating: "Eyes, reflecting the person that I am, and it burns". In this track Vasquez's guilt bores deeper and deeper into a condemnation that ultimately is: "Fire, hell is where I'll go to live, so I burn”.“Burn” is followed by the caustic bass, mechanized rhythms, and numbing emulsions of “Choke,” a song about the amplifying and anesthetizing effect of cocaine, a drug whose darker side Vasquez is not unfamiliar with. The next track “Give Something” is a subterranean love song from the deepest depths, with harrowingly despondent lyrics, seeking hope in a sea of shame. The album continues its thematic inner conflict in the Industrial/EBM percussion and distorted high attack bass of “Like a Father”, a song reflecting Vasquez's anger towards the father that abandoned him. “This head is a problem/You're the ghost of my problem/Something's got to give”pleads Vasquez as revving guitars invoke chainsaws before the song’s final lines search for closure: to kill the father within himself. The album closes with title track “Criminal”; a despondent resignation to guilt; bereft, broken, and bruised, with lyrics that confess: “It's the way I cross the line, it's the way I open, it's the way to my decline, it's the way I'm broken”. The song, like the album itself, is Vasquez's way of holding himself accountable and seeking redemption for the abuse he inflicts on himself, and acknowledges roots in the abuse which, inflicted upon him as a child, broke him.‘Criminal’ will be released on February 2nd 2018 with a new home on New York label Sacred Bones.
