Joseph Charles Cacciatore & The Mourners (FKA Good Morning Midnight) - First local show since their opening slot for Mitski, and the first local show with the new name. Canonical '90s indie rock of Sparklehorse and Red House Painters meets the dreamy, romantic folk of Nick Drake and Tim Buckley.

Peanut Ricky - Local freaks. The spookiest moments of the Pixies meet the uncomfortable sexual coolness of Xiu Xiu, with a soul influenced delivery and a knack for dreamy repetition. For anyone who has ever masturbated to Georges Bataille.

Douglas Kramer Nye - Cowboy folk crooner with a baritone voice. Songs for smokey highway diners that would make David Lynch's hair stand up. Classic Iowa City singer-songwriting at its finest.

Nadah El Shazly:
is part of a burgeoning underground music scene in Egypt that has been rightly garnering more and more interest of late. Having started out in music in a Cairo punk band singing Misfits covers, El Shazly gradually moved into homemade electronic music before alighting on the mystical hybrid between rock, avant-garde music and electronica that forms the core of Ahwar (“marshlands” in Arabic). With Libyan guitarist Sam Shalabi and fellow Cairo native Maurice Louca (both members of The Dwarfs Of East Agouza with Alan Bishop) adding their prodigious talents to the fray, El Shazly has joined together past and present to position herself at the forefront of the new North African music scene.
"A perfect, soaring amalgamation of traditional Egyptian song with experimental takes on performance and instrumentation." -The Quietus

Ohmme with Karen Meat

Dead Coast Presents:
Ohmme with special guest Karen Meat

The Trumpet Blossom
Friday, April 26th
9PM | $10

Already celebrated as the “Heart of Chicago’s Music Community” (Noisey) by both fans and tastemakers alike, OHMME (aka the duo of Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart) amalgamate the aggressive and the meditative on their bold debut full-length album, Parts.

Still in their 20s, Stewart and Cunningham are both classically trained musicians and are established players within the Chicago music scene. They are especially involved in performing and working for venues within the local experimental music scene. They’re constant collaborators and have recorded and toured with homegrown acts as varied as Tweedy, Whitney, Chance The Rapper and Twin Peaks.

Cunningham and Stewart are multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriters with a penchant for two instruments in particular. “The band started because we knew we could sing well together and we wanted to make some noise with the guitar,” says Cunningham. Stewart elaborates, “Sima and I are both trained classical pianists and we know many of the sonic spaces keyboards have to offer. Since we were interested in experimenting and creating something different from what we had both done in the past, we chose guitar as our outlet for this band. We wanted to create both new and uncomfortable parameters for ourselves to force us into a different creative space.” These guitar-heavy experiments are sometimes earthy and resounding, at other times shimmering and buzzing—swirling around the duo’s expertly crafted vocals while creating a chaotic bed of harmony. Cunningham’s smoky alto complements Stewart’s higher-register croon, all underpinned by the restrained yet highly inventive polyrhythmic percussion of drummer Matt Carroll. Think Amber Coffman and Angel Deradoorian-era Dirty Projectors.

Enlisting fellow Chicago cohorts Doug McCombs (Tortoise), Ken Vandermark and cellist Tomeka Reid, OHMME recorded and self-produced Parts from Cunningham’s Logan Square home studio, Fox Hall. With Parts, OHMME “wanted to capture a moment in time instead of something perfect.” The results are thrilling: from the pure pop opening track “Icon” to the candied sludge of “Peach” to the skipping rhythms of “Parts” and the dusky closer “Walk Me,” Parts draws from influences as diverse as Kate Bush and Brian Eno’s Here Come the Warm Jets to jazz and improvisational music, making for an electric debut listening experience.

This range from sweetly shiny 2-minute hypnotic bangers to woozy and sprawling 7-minute long tracks boasting moodily atmospheric wafting guitars and piercing feedback shows a band colliding thoughtfulness and creative ingenuity to produce music as unique as it is earworm-worthy. With Parts, OHMME manage to organically marry a breadth of divergent styles into an album that is cohesive, daring, and distinctly their own.

Dead Coast Presents: Willy Tea Taylor with The Harmed Brothers

Dead Coast Presents:
Willy Tea Taylor
with The Harmed Brothers and Brian Johannesen

Wednesday, March 20th
8PM | $10

Willy Tea Taylor is a father, brother, and son. His remarkable ability to sing about profound subjects in a simple way makes his songs a great place to lose yourself. Much of that comes from his upbringing.

Willy grew up surrounded by rolling hills and horses in the small town of Oakdale, California. Known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World” for breeding so many world champion rodeo cowboys, Oakdale is still Willy’s home and the setting for many of his songs.

Despite coming from a long line of cattlemen – his grandfather Walt was one of the most respected of his generation – Willy’s first love was baseball. As a catcher, he had a gift for the nuances of calling a game from behind the plate. When a knee injury ended his ability to catch, Willy turned his attention to music.

At the age of 18, a discerning and intimate set by Greg Brown at the Strawberry Music Festival inspired Willy to pursue life as a folk singer. Strawberry would play an integral role in Willy’s development as a musician, going from spectator to stagehand, to performer. He made his main stage debut with his band the Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit at the 2009 festival. In 2015, Willy made his solo debut on the main stage. Willy has charmed fans at some of the best festivals in the country.

Willy calls John Hartford, Roscoe Holcomb, Bob Dylan, KISS, Weird Al Yankovic and Willie Nelson his biggest influences, but is always quick to advocate for his favorite contemporary songwriters which include Tom VandenAvond, Nathan Moore, and his Good Luck partner in crime, Chris Doud. He and VandenAvond have travelled the country together on a series of tours they call “Searchin’ for Guy Clark’s Kitchen” where each evening’s show is just a precursor to an endless quest for the kind of serene late night scene depicted in the cult classic documentary Heartworn Highways.

On his new release Knuckleball Prime, Willy received support from greats like Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Greg Leisz (Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton), and Gabe Witcher and Noam Pikelny of the Punch Brothers. Of the album’s title, Taylor says “most baseball players peak in their twenties, but knuckleball pitchers tend to blossom in their late thirties and early forties. I’m staring down my knuckleball prime.”

Led by producer Michael Witcher, the songs on Knuckleball Prime are arranged and accompanied magnificently by a first rate team of musicians and engineers. If you’re a fan of well-written lyrics, alluring melodies, and a voice that ties them together with emotion as deep as the artist’s own roots, you’ll savor Knuckleball Prime, and just about anything else Willy Tea Taylor has ever done.

Dead Coast Presents: paris_monster

Dead Coast Presents:
paris_monster
with TBD support

Wednesday, March 6th
$7 | 8PM

Beat-driven. Employing heavy elements of funk and soul, paris_monster closes the gaps between synth-pop & garage; between modern detail and old-school grit. Solid earth. Soaring soundscapes. A mass of noise. Volatility. Vocal singularity.

The Deli NYC calls paris_monster “a precise, complex and sophisticated mechanism" with a "a monstrous instrumental technique”, delivering a sound that “could be the new face of American roots rock”.

In fall of 2017 paris_monster began recording their first full length LP, set to be released in 2018. The album will solidify their dirty, glitchy, lyric-centered, groove-based sound, and will be a milepost in their search for a focused and flexible musical approach. The elements of funk and soul join with lyrical themes of bygone eras in rural settings, characters lost, and mortality confronted. Love achieved, and denied. Americana. Themes in stark contrast to the pounding grooves and electronic mayhem, creating depths and dimensions that could have been otherwise achieved only by dropping a modular synth in the corn fields of central New York or the woods of Connecticut. And maybe that’s exactly what happened.

Lesley Keller of Pancakes & Whiskey said, "Each time I see them perform I’m dumbfounded at just how great they are”. paris_monster’s live show is something to behold. The challenge when seeing them live is getting past the fact that there are only two people creating all that sound. Two people. A drum set. A bass. A keyboard. A eurorack modular synth. One microphone. And all that sound. Beyond this visual impossibility is a careful and deliberate balance of sounds,colors, and textures. Melodies to serve a story. Chaos to destroy preciousness. The Deli NYC observed, “infallible superior forces: as we all know now, 'with great power comes great responsibilities,' and the duo never abuses of it - that's what good musicianship is." paris_monster's full catalogue is available NOW on iTunes. The Deli NYC said of recent release “Ain’t No Movin’ Me”: “…[paris_monster] showcases its prowess for hook writing/crafting a track that could stand without accompaniment as a blues-y, spiritual declaration, but is launched into another realm by its bed of synths and echoing choruses. An inspired take on blues folk that's both hypnotic and engaging.”

<><><>Doors at 7. Show at 8. $5. Good vibes all night. <><><>

Omahans pass through your fair city in search of present memories. Let's sip 'n sway the sombre night away.

*And How* - And How brings psychedelia into fruition with a spaghetti western score that leaves one feeling rather road-worn. From Omaha, Nebraska, And How is: Ryan Menchaca’s voice & 6 strings, Ashlee Riggs' walking phalanges, Kafele Williams blowing smooth madness, Maureen O’Brian bringing sticks down & Andy Cubrich gently plucking all the while.

*BB Sledge* - Baby Sledge is the fairly new musical entertainment and art project of House Vacations singer Andy Birch. What began as an experiment in rawness and immediacy has managed
to become an over-the-top, all-or-nothing, haphazard swirl of bit-crushed synth daggers, meat mallet guitar-work, fuzzy electronic percussion, idiosyncratic vocals, and a live acoustic percussionist very precisely flailing among a forest of drums over and under all of it. Also guaranteed: Gently provocative video projections solely for your viewing pleasure.

*Tom McCauley* - Tom McCauley is a writer, comedian, musician and endangered dolphin living in Omaha, Nebraska. He has an MFA in poetry from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. He has been a creative writing teacher, a grant writer, an advertising copywriter, an arts administrator, a house cleaner, a bookseller, a truck loader and co-editor of the online poetry journal Strange Machine. With his band The Answer Team, he wrote and performed the score for Constance Congdon's Tales of the Lost Formicans for the 2012 Great Plains Theatre Conference. His poem “People Are Not Lights” recently won an award from the Academy of American Poets. Follow him on Instagram @tomdavidmccauley if you like memes and videos of people practicing the guitar.
