Black Iris Presents: REVEREND HORTON HEAT w/ Agent Orange & Flat Duo Jets

Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heath’s imagination. True to his high evan­gelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of Ameri­can music. He’s a time-travelling space-cowboy on a endless inter­stellar musical tour, and we are all the richer & “psychobillier” for get­ting to tag along.

Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative ex­perience. Flames come off the gui­tars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Rever­end Horton Heat show. Jim be­comes a slicked-back 1950′s rock & roll shaman channeling Screamin’ Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand-Up Bass. And then there are the “Heatettes”. Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming the night away. It’s like being magically transported into a Teen Exploita­tion picture from the 1950′s that’s currently taking place in the future.

Thoughts of Ionesco - Album Release Party

Recording their first record when two-thirds of the bandmembers were still in high school and breaking up when most were barely 21 years old, it's a wonder that the infamous Detroit outfit Thoughts of Ionesco even lasted the few years that they did. Confrontational to audiences, uninterested in record labels, exceedingly dark and heavy, the band played music that was once referred to by Alternative Press magazine as "the ultimate realization of pain-through-sound." Forming in 1996, the hardcore, art-damaged soul of TOI materialized around vocalist/guitarist Sean Hoen, bassist Nathan Miller, and drummer Brian Repa; the band also included a sax player by the end of its career. Repa left and returned several times during the band's existence, and Derek Grant (ex-Suicide Machines, Alkaline Trio) served as his replacement for a stretch from 1997-1998.

AEG Presents: Walk Off The Earth

Walk Off The Earth, the chart-topping viral hit-makers who have extended the boundaries of what a 21st century band can bring to pop music and pop culture, released their Columbia Records sophomore album, 'Sing It All Away,' in 2015. Creatively crafted from a roost of limitless possibilities, the album infuses all of the undeniable joy and eccentricity of a WOTE song with a decidedly more ambitious production. Their lead single, "Rule The World," mixes bombastic production with its uplifting chant and foreshadows an album overflowing with musical surprises. Presented by 93.9 The River

With poignant yet sing-along-able lyrics and undeniable rock noir musical undertones, Spirits, the first single from The Strumbellas’ forthcoming album, embodies the essence of what has been attracting fans from across North America to this Lindsay, Ontario-bred band.

AEG Presents: Mogwai

The cosmic post-rock band Mogwai was formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1996 by guitarist/vocalist Stuart Braithwaite, guitarist Dominic Aitchison, and drummer Martin Bulloch, longtime friends with the goal of creating "serious guitar music." Toward that end, they added another guitarist, John Cummings, before debuting in March 1996 with the single "Tuner," a rarity in the Mogwai discography for its prominent vocals; the follow-up, a split single with Dweeb titled "Angels vs. Aliens," landed in the Top Ten on the British indie charts. Following appearances on a series of compilations, Mogwai returned later in the year with the 7" "Summer," and after another early 1997 single, "New Paths to Helicon," they issued Ten Rapid, a collection of their earliest material.
