Mon. June 8th: Divine Circles (Asheville, NC) / Aerial Ruin (Portland, OR) / Knives of Spain (Greensboro, NC)

8pm | Free to get in but bring some cash for the touring bands

DIVINE CIRCLES (asheville) – “Meg Mulhearn creates pastoral psych-folk with layered, mutating violin loops running the gamut of staccato and percussive to thick and droney. Floating above the dense sonic landscape is Mulhearn’s clarion voice. A Divine Circles performance is powerful, arresting, and darkly beautiful.”

AERIAL RUIN (portland, OR) – “Erik Moggridge channels heavy, spacey, doomy psychedelia through articulate fingerstyle guitar and a dynamic vocal range. Aerial Ruin’s songs creak, wobble, tower, and topple, creating an almost mythical sonic landscape for the listener to traverse. Completely immersive and deeply psychedelic.”

knives of spain (Greensboro) = experimental folk from Gwen Young on vocals, fingerstyle guitar, accordion, flute, percussion and crumar analog synth.

Wed. June 10th: Chastity Belt (Seattle, WA) / Daddy Issues (Greensboro, NC)

8pm | Free to get in but bring some cash for the touring bands

Chastity Belt (Seattle, WA / Hardly Art Records)

“In between pelvic-thrusting sexual innuendo and self-mockery, Chastity Belt filter feminist theory, cultural commentary and general intellectual bad-assery.” – CMJ

“Time to Go Home is a beautifully composed record about confronting your fuck-ups, but it’s also a record about feeling numb to them.” -Pitchfork

“Simple, brilliant chord progressions, shockingly astute lyricism, and noise, oh my god, the beautiful noise.” – The Stranger

“It isn’t anywhere near the worst music you’ll ever hear — in fact, it’s awesome.” – NPR

“Nobody in Seattle sings about sex more honestly.” – Seattle Times

“No chastity belt is required — thanks, ladies. This is just plain terrifying.” – Buzzfeed


“A not-shitty band of women who craft tight, upbeat tunes that boast a biting attitude. They’re not so much overt attempts at being edgy as they are honest acknowledgements of the fact that women, too, experience a wide range of emotions.” -Noisey

“North Carolina oddities revel in the absurd and risque, writing sexually-charged tunes with names like ‘So Hard.’ Their first cassette EP, ‘Double Loser,’ will be out on Valentine’s Day, naturally.” -NME

“It’s difficult not to love this North Carolina based quartet’s surfy pop rock. Like Chastity Belt’s ‘Cool Slut‘, the track says, “Hey! Girls can have sex too!” -Overblown (UK)

“This is simply a perfect, shining moment of girl group surf pop. There’s something here reminiscent of The Vaselines.” – Product Magazine (UK)

4/22 OBNOX (Cleveland), Winston Facials TONIGHT!


Ohio has produced so many good garage and post-punk bands in the past few decades, picking a list of the best would be close to impossible. But one thing’s certain: Lamont “Bim” Thomas would show up a lot. He’s played drums in V-3, Bassholes, the Unholy Two, This Moment in Black History, and Puffy Aerolas; the latter two still enlist his services regularly. But his most important project is turning out to be one he does on his own. In just three years he’s cranked out three albums and a bunch of EPs and singles as Obnox, pouring his experiences, influences, and considerable energies into burning-red noise-punk blasts.

First comes a gale-force gust of noise, battered drums clamoring behind feedback and distortion. Then through the din, melodies emerge and structures take shape. The rock half of Winston Facials’ noise-rock becomes apparent. Like John Dwyer’s pre-Oh Sees duo Pink and Brown, Winston Facials revel in chaotic squalls of guitar noise, but they can’t shake the undercurrent of tunefulness. Playing way past in-the-red, well into blown-out, Winston Facials make a hell of a racket—one that is more apt to move bodies than scour skulls.
