Fresh off the release of "Nosebleed Weekend" and direct support slot for the US tour of Refused (the band that changed Jaime of the Trumpet Blossom's life when she was thirteen), Atlanta's ripper queens, The Coathangers are playing an intimate gig at the Trumpet Blossom Cafe. We're only selling a max 100 or so tickets total, so maybe, just this once, think about scooping up some advance tickets. They'll have some behind the bar at Trumpet Blossom starting next week, or you can order direct at:https://midwestix.securemytix.com/event/TheCoathangersJul2016
When The Coathangers started up in 2006, their aspirations were humble. “I think all bands in their early twenties start for fun,” says guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel when talking about their early years of cheeky no-wave and irreverent garage rock. But Julia and her bandmates Meredith Franco (bass/vocals) and Stephanie Luke (drums/vocals) were serious about their craft, and that combination of modest outside expectations and absolute dedication to their music made for exhilarating live shows and contagious records. Ten years later, The Coathangers are still going strong, and while their palette has expanded over the years to touch upon hip-shakin’ classic rock, soulful country ballads, and golden oldies pop, their primary attack strategy still relies heavily on the jagged hooks and boisterous choruses of their formative years. Their fifth album Nosebleed Weekend retains all the devil-may-care magnetism and serrated instrumentation of their debut, but it flourishes with a decade’s worth of songwriting discipline and chemistry.
