Price:  $15

Tight Bros presents
9pm | $15 | All Ages

Tickets on sale this Friday, April 24 at all Ticket Alternative outlets and at http://www.ticketalternative.com/Events/31146.aspx.

June 15 2015 marks the release of "Year of the Hare" on Deathwish Records, the seventh 12" single in Fucked Up's "Zodiac" series, a collection of records that finds the band pushing the boundaries of their already ambitious sound. To mark the occasion, Fucked Up will expand their live lineup to 9 members by including friends Doomsquad to embark on a series of exclusive ZODIAC shows. Fucked up will perform a different set of Zodiac songs each night--many of these songs have never been played live before, and this tour will allow the band to flex a more improvisational and experimental muscle, while retaining all of the power and frenzy of a Fucked Up show.

MuhfuckaNeva(Luvd)Uhs: Real Live Girl July 11, 2015
11:00PM - - -
Price:  proceeds for Ladyfest Atlanta
MuhfuckaNeva(Luvd)Uhs: Real Live Girl is a multimedia street exhibition seeking to make the private public via exploring the sexual performance of the black woman’s body (film, live, music, dance). Among Atlanta’s popular monikers is “Strip Club Capital of the South”, particularly within hiphop culture. Black strip clubs in Atlanta, like its black women dancers, are located in the city’s margins, literally- tucked into dark, industrial corners with colorful, neon lit signs as proverbial brick roads to the dancers.

Danielle Deadwyler (actor/artist) is an Atlanta native raised off of the old Stewart Avenue, where the infamous Club Nikki, and before that the Purple Onion, reigned as the most popular adult entertainment spot for years. As an ongoing strip club enthusiast/researcher, Deadwyler is interested in deconstructing the dark, private nature of adult dancers’ sexual performances and the humanity of black women in these roles. By eliminating the structural boundary of the club, six live and projected (video) performances by the artist as an exotic dancer (live) and as domestic (filmed) in selected Atlanta street corners parallels and blurs the lines of the sexual and personhood of the black woman and the work of her body.

Justice Yeldham, If There’s Something July 15, 2015

Price:  10

If There’s Something Strange In Your Neighbourhood…

If There’s Something Strange In Your Neighbourhood… is a film exploring the gentrification of a squatter settlement built in the 70s on a graveyard alongside Yogyakarta’s main river, Kali Code. In 2013 the local mayor announced he wanted to develop this area and local residents have already started being pushed out. Due to the history of this place, tombstones are still visible in the walls of the kampung (neighbourhood) and ghost activity is abundant. For years people in the area have relied heavily on the local ghost mover to relocate the ghosts out of their houses, but these paranormal evictions are now becoming an uncanny parallel for their own evictions in the living world.

This is an Asialink Arts Residency Project supported by Arts NSW
through KUNCI Cultural Studies Centre.

Justice Yeldham

"First up, I got to see this guy perform live – and I seriously was not expecting that.

There’s no blood but the intensity of the emotion reminds me of early Neubauten or Nina Simone or someone: he has a trunk full of effects and delay and distortion pedals, and he’s not scared to use them. He blows crazy shit across a shaped plate of glass for 20 or 30 minutes or so, and it’s crazy shit good – so good, that when he started I figured Nicola had slipped on an extraordinarily loud noise tape and I could not quite understand why everyone was crowding around the ‘stage’.

The noise is incredible – and when I type ‘noise’, I mean layers of sound, texture, understanding, dissonant harmony. Really incredible. I never was much one for guitar shredding or extended drum fills or virtuoso vocal acrobatics, but it seems the one thing that will really get my pulse racing is some glass shredding. Seriously. This is body-expanding. Sometimes I’m laughing out loud at the nerve and brilliance of it. Sometimes, I just want to fuck shit up (plus ça change). Halfway across it bothers me that few people are dancing amid the ruins but then I figure they too are too stupefied.

Justice tells me afterwards that he can’t get booked no more: this is only his second performance this year. Man, this man should be headlining the fucking Sydney Opera House. He’s a fucking MASTER or MISTRESS, or have it what you will, of his chosen instrument. I feel the same empathy towards his music that others doubtless feel for fucking Kevin Shields. (Not literally fucking Kevin Shields, you understand – though maybe some feel that too.) He can’t get booked cos he’s an experimental artist – frequently gets called a ‘performance artist’, much to his disgust – and so he’s meant to be always switching around, trying out new ideas and forms, not concentrate for several years on becoming the world’s leading glass shredder."

Chain & the Gang, Flandrew Fleisenberg July 21, 2015
9:00PM - - -

Chain & the Gang

Chain & the Gang is led by Ian Svenonius, the prime mover behind the bands Nation of Ulysses and The Make-Up, and author of two books, Psychic Soviet and Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group, not to mention online talk show host and auteur filmmaker. The band deals in a new genre called CRIME ROCK that updates rock 'n' roll, blues, and gospel music or vocal quartets from the late 50s /early 60s for the discerning few.

As Ian himself puts it: "If asked about it by a prospective fan, I would say 'Watch out; it might hurt your feelings.' Or 'Be careful...there's no telling what might happen if you put it in your ear.'" Why? Because Chain & The Gang isn't for everyone. It's not designed for the victims of Ikea who rely on robots to choose their background muzak, but it can also prove to be addictive and has some disturbing side effects.

Flandrew Fleisenberg

flandrew fleisenberg plays percussion on an ever changing assortment of ephemera and modified drum parts coaxing texture and tone both familiar and bizarre. Attentive to room resonance, ambience and collaborator, fleisenberg playfully utilizes sound and presence to explore space, time, and relationships. A graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) with a focus in conceptual art, he is musically self-taught and has developed a cadre of idiosyncratic techniques that are all his own. flandrew has been involved in the improvised and creative music community since 2001 performing solo, in ad-hoc improv groupings, and in set projects. A recent migrant to Philadelphia, fleisenberg is an active producer and advocate of improvised and experimental music and dance across the region.

Cannon ball, 10' ball chain, catering platter, doors, loose cymbals, sticky sticks, soup pans, glass window, steel spring, floors, walls, air, sand, paper, rope, ping ping balls, a couple glasses of wine, some luck, and good fortune.

Breakdancing Ronald Reagan, Aunt'sAnalog,Coyote,SF July 29, 2015
9:00PM - - -
Price:  7
Breakdancing Ronald Reagan (Austin, TX)
High quality, dynamic and diverse harsh noise amongst other things. BRR is currently residing Austin, TX and has been active with this project since 2003, give or take. BRR shows and releases often feature foul humor, obnoxious stage antics, ridiculous samples and overwhelming volumes. He runs the label #420holocaust and the highly-acclaimed annual Sux By Suxwest noise fest in Austin.

Aunt's Analog (Austin, TX)
Texas' king of pedal smashing Japanoise worship. Often flips tables and freaks out, but still has a psychedelic edge and doesn't rely on macho brutality to get his point across; just real human instability. Instincto Records label owner.

COYOTE is an autobiographical performance art project, examining the intersection of violence and intimacy. Employs imagery of kink and soft femininity, elements of both complete silence and harsh noise, to approach difficult subjects such as abortion, rape, and sexism, with an attitude of sex and body positivity, and subtle humor.

Scraped Face

Scraped Face
Solo output from Curtis Stephens of Atlanta's finest noise quartet, Suffer Bomb Damage.
