Ritual Howls with Cussy / Angel-Maker / Lowfaith

ritual howls.jpg

Ritual Howls (Felte Records)
—————————————
Detroit's Paul Bancell, Ben Saginaw and Chris Samuels are Ritual Howls. They collect samples of the physical world and feed them with guitar, vox, bass, synth and drum machines to create an aura of darkness over a pop sensibility. Paul Bancell provides lyrics that Lovecraft would approve of while Chris Samuels and Ben Saginaw provide sounds that bring his macabre tales lurching into the world of the living. Collaboratively, Ritual Howls create a surreal, introspective gloom that could fuel a disco in hell, a soundtrack to your favorite nightmares and most grisly fantasies.

Cussy
———
Debut from this Indianapolis trio including ex-members of We Are Hex. Combining the driving percussion of krautrock with fuzzed-out basslines, heavy synths, and Rhodes electric piano.

Angel-Maker
——————
Indianapolis-based darkwave / post-punk / goth
https://angel-maker.bandcamp.com

Lowfaith

Jesse Malin.jpeg

About Jesse Malin:

Listen | Watch Video

Jesse Malin is a songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist who has more than one musical personality, having made a name as a thoughtful and introspective singer/songwriter in his solo career as well as playing raucous, over-the-top rock & roll with the band D Generation, though heartfelt and street-smart songwriting is the common element in all of Malin's work.

Born January 26, 1968, in Queens, New York, Malin was just 12 years old when he joined his first band, handling vocals and guitar for the New York hardcore outfit Heart Attack. Though Heart Attack released a single and a pair of EPs between 1981 and 1984, Malin fared better when, in 1991, he and fellow Heart Attack alum Danny Sage formed D Generation, who fused old-school punk and glam rock guitars with a heavy dose of New York Dolls influence blended in. Though some critics dismissed D Generation as Johnny Thunders copycats, their teased hair and glossy wardrobe were just a part of the act, and substance and song structure were always a part of their music. As one of New York City's more talented bands of the '90s, D Generation released three albums before disbanding in April 1999. Malin, always a punk with the heart of a poet, kept writing music as he explored a new creative direction. His love for Neil Young, Tom Waits, and Steve Earle influenced his work, and he spent the next two years working on a fresh, rootsy sound.

Ex-Whiskeytown frontman Ryan Adams, who'd been a friend of Malin since the D Generation days, was impressed with Malin's new approach. Adams offered to produce Malin's debut album, even though he'd never produced a record before. The two headed into Loho Studios in New York in January 2001 and made an album in just six days. A deal with Artemis Records soon followed, and The Fine Art of Self Destruction appeared in the U.K. in October 2002. The first single, "Queen of the Underworld," was a moderate hit in England, where the press quickly hailed Malin's debut as one of the year's best. Stateside fans finally got their hands on The Fine Art of Self Destruction when Artemis gave it an American release in January 2003. Road dates followed, both in America and the U.K. Malin contributed a version of "Hungry Heart" to the benefit album Light of Day: A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen; he also picked up a nomination for the Shortlist Music Prize. (Malin and Adams would reunite in the studio later in 2003 when they recorded a hardcore punk album, We Are Fuck You, under the band name the Finger, with Malin billed as "Irving Plaza" and Adams as "Warren Peace.")

By November 2003, Malin was back in the studio, laying down tracks for his second long-player. The Heat appeared in June 2004, accompanied by a string of tour dates on both sides of the pond. Malin's third album was recorded in Los Angeles during the summer and fall of 2006, which marked his first time making a record outside of New York (or even above 14th Street). Featuring guest spots by Bruce Springsteen and Jakob Dylan, among others, Glitter in the Gutter eventually surfaced in March 2007 via Billie Joe Armstrong's Adeline Records label. (Armstrong was a D Generation fan who had brought the band along as Green Day's opening act in the '90s.) Malin spent most of the year on the road with his backing band, the Heat. With that group, Malin released Mercury Retrograde in 2008, which was recorded live in New York City. That same year, Malin followed up with the One Little Indian release On Your Sleeve, a gutsy set of covers that featured imaginative readings of songs by the Bad Brains, the Rolling Stones, Fred Neil, Paul Simon, and others.

In 2009, Malin founded a new band called St. Mark's Social, who released Love It to Life in 2010 on the Side One Dummy label. In 2011, D Generation reunited for a handful of live shows, and Malin found himself dividing his time between his solo career and occasional road trips with the band, including a few dates opening for Guns N' Roses. In March 2015, Malin released a new solo effort, New York Before the War, while D Generation announced they were recording new material. Only seven months after New York Before the War hit the streets, Malin was back with another solo effort, the gritty and straightforward Outsiders. The prolific Malin returned in 2017 with another studio effort, Meet Me at the End of the World. After a few years in talks with Lucinda Williams, they eventually collaborated on the tracks "Room 13" and "Dead On," both of which appeared on Malin's 2019 album Sunset Kids.

About Heaven Honey:

Listen | Watch Video

Heaven Honey is just doing what feels right.

Initially a drummer, Indiana singer-songwriter Jordan Gomes-Kuehner played with Bloomington indie-pop trio Her Again for two years before the band dissolved. At some point during her stint with the group she picked up a guitar and started working on what would become Heaven Honey's first songs - her own personal brand of songwriting that would step away from the town's common genres and establish a new, distinct sound.

That sound is a little bit of Angel Olsen, a little bit of Mazzy Star, and a whole lot of many other things that have shaped the chameleon that is Jordan's songwriting. Her releases come across as both delicate and bold, intimate and mystifying. You can hang onto every word she sings as if these are your own experiences, even with her personal touch that expresses them to be uniquely hers.

That variety and unpredictable nature is what makes Heaven Honey so extraordinary. It's a "create first, ask questions later" mentality that results in a genre-bending display of dream pop, folk, and hard-hitting rock and roll. It leads to a level of genuine honesty that makes you feel like you're part of something new and special - and that's simply because you are.

Outrageously violent, time-twisting, and in love with language, Pulp Fiction was widely considered the most influential American movie of the 1990s. Director and co-screenwriter Quentin Tarantino synthesized such seemingly disparate traditions as the syncopated language of David Mamet; the serious violence of American gangster movies, crime movies, and films noirs mixed up with the wacky violence of cartoons, video games, and Japanese animation; and the fragmented story-telling structures of such experimental classics as Citizen Kane, Rashomon, and La jetée. The Oscar-winning script by Tarantino and Roger Avary intertwines three stories, featuring Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta, in the role that single-handedly reignited his career, as hit men who have philosophical interchanges on such topics as the French names for American fast food products; Bruce Willis as a boxer out of a 1940s B-movie; and such other stalwarts as Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman, whose dance sequence with Travolta proved an instant classic. ~ Leo Charney, Rovi

All Seating is First Come, First Served



New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing Third Conchord on HBOs Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourkes deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler, and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced, measured, and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.
Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan OBrien, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and two Comedy Central Presents specials, and his latest one hour Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todds resume also includes such hit TV shows as Louie, Delocated, Bored to Death, Tim and Eric, Chappelles Show, Sex and the City, Roast Battle and even Sesame Street. Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillipss Road Trip, Louis CKs Pootie Tang, and Mitch Hedbergs Los Enchiladas. You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver's right hand man in Amy Heckerling's Vamps, and as Paul Rudd's co-worker in David Wain's Wanderlust. Internationally he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreals Just For Laughs Festival, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and Kilkenny, Irelands Cat Laughs Festival.
Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium Energy, Falling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festivals Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onions A.V. Club, which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade.
Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a master of standup and noted when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.
Todd Barry Podcast debuted in 2013 and has since reached #1 on the iTunes.

This Too Shall Suck is a life history about always coming in second place, or as Matt Graham explains, the story of “one man’s transformation from total loser into not quite as much of a loser.” Covering the span of Graham’s forty-five years, the show is an autobiography with a Messiah Complex as fluent in narcissism as it is in big ideas.


NEW YORK (AP) — If you ever wanted to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in a bar, make room on your calendar any Thursday evening and go see the very funny one-man show “This Too Shall Suck.” It’s written and performed with both sincerity and irony by Matt Graham, who is well aware that he’s a narcissistic, self-destructive recovering alcoholic and comedian.

at the historic WHITE RABBIT CABARET
(bear witness to an evening of the midwest's finest)

Joshua Powell + the Great Train Robbery (indy)
Untangled from sonic hexes of clay and blurry eyes, the kaleidoscopic reinterpretation of rock witchery, sloping up heavenward with cosmic channeling of belted protest breath and sweat that fills a reflection pond in your hallucinating spirit's angsty core.

MOIRA (ohio)
Lush violet dream pop like the cat sleep of Sunday afternoon inside a synthesized mewl, cascades of polyphonic charm telekinetics, a holy trio of aural bedroom pioneering and rectitude.

Mister Moon (ohio) -
Build your celestial nest in the echoing chamber between two syncopated battle drums, whistling octaval birdsong beneath the tintinnabulation of indie rock reimagined as everything worth listening to in universal stereo.

Former war hero Cameron Poe (Nicolas Cage) is sentenced to eight years in prison when he accidentally kills a man in a barroom brawl while defending his pregnant wife. When his release comes through, he's eager to see the daughter he's never met. However, Poe's original flight is delayed, so he's put aboard a flight transporting ten of the most dangerous men in the American penal system to a new high-security facility. One of the criminals, Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom (John Malkovich), is a serial killer and insane genius who has hatched a diabolical plot: with the help of several other hoods, including Diamond Dog (Ving Rhames), Johnny 23 (Daniel Trejo), and Garland Greene (Steve Buscemi), Cyrus and his men will hijack the plane and fly to a neutral nation where they can live as free men. Poe finds himself stuck in the middle; he has to find a way to get home, keep himself alive, look after his cellmate Baby-O (Mykelti Williamson), who will die without proper medicine, and try to help the cops on the ground, including agent Vince Larkin (John Cusack). Producer Jerry Bruckheimer's first film after the death of his partner Don Simpson, Con Air shows he learned well how to assemble the formula all by himself, with plenty of action, stunts, and special effects and not a lot of story to get in the way. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
