Upcoming Shows – MSR + Angioplasty Events for the moment

Angioplasty Media & MSR Presents…
6/24 @ The Monkey House
Morning Teleportation
w/ TBD
Doors: 8, Show: 8:30
$8, 18+ – Tickets available at Pure Pop Records or online at Ticketfly.com

Morning Teleportation formed in 2005 when Bowling Green, KY natives and lifelong friends Travis Goodwin (keyboards) and Tres Coker (drums) met up with Chicago transplant Tiger Merritt (vocals/guitar), who had just moved to their hometown for college. From the beginning the band has built up a roller coaster of tumultuous rock ‘n roll, featuring analog synths, heartfelt vocals, and sudden changes woven through psychedelia, electronica, and deep-space pickin’ n’ grinnin’. They’ve spent most of the past year on the road playing for enthusiastic crowds at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch and supporting the likes of The Flaming Lips, Cage The Elephant, and Modest Mouse.

Nectar’s & MSR Presents…
6/27 @ Nectar’s
Mother Falcon
w/ TBD
Doors: 9:30, Show: 10
$5, 21+

Born in Austin, Texas, Mother Falcon began to coalesce around multi-instrumentalist and composer Nick Gregg while the members were still teenagers, coming together via orchestral and chamber music classes. Composing as a collective, the 18 piece ensemble includes several multi-instrumentalists, and most players contribute vocals as well. Guitarist/pianist Claire Puckett, accordionist/pianist Tamir Kalifa and percussionist/saxophonist Issac Winburne form the creative core along with Nick Gregg.

The Monkey House & MSR Presents…
6/27 @ The Monkey House
Young Empires
w/ Black Light Dinner Party, TBD
Doors: 8, Show: 9
$8, 18+

“…the mathmania of Battles, the gloss’n’grandeur of The Killers, and the calamitous quiver of Arcade Fire… Young Empires have consummately summated this generation’s achievements in Rock. Not that they’re total re-tread merchants; no, they’re master weavers of our disparate indie threads, forging a fine tapestry of future disco…”

Angioplasty Media & MSR Presents…
6/29 @ The Monkey House
Night Beds
w/ Jenny O, Quiet Lion
Doors: 8, Show: 8:30
$8, 18+

It’s difficult to say where Night Beds begins, but it could be here: August 2006, a young Winston Yellen is invited to a longtime friend’s apartment. They talk, they record a little aimlessly, and something exciting emerges. Maybe it’s a little later, when one is studying engineering in Nashville, and the other remains behind, an unhappy captive of secondary education. It could be any number of moments, really, along a series of migrations, but probably here: the summer of 2008, back in Colorado Springs, when they write the first Night Beds song, “You Were Afraid.”

7/1 @ The Monkey House
Bleeding Rainbow
w/ Fat Creeps, TBD
Doors: 8, Show: 8:30
$10, 18+ – Tickets available at Pure Pop Records or online at Ticketfly.com

Nevermind the constant threat of a cease and desist letter, when Carrie Brownstein tells you that your band name is weak, you change it. But it isn’t as simple as a name change for Philadelphia’s minimal noise pop duo Reading Rainbow, significant line up additions facilitated the adoption of a new moniker. So…drum roll please…as we reintroduce Philadelphia’s Bleeding Rainbow, now a full-blown, Brownstein-approved, rock quartet. The name better represents the band’s evolving sound and is all around more badass and trippy as sh*t. The founding members, Sarah Everton, who moved from drums to bass to give her vocals a better chance to shine, and vocalist/guitarist Rob Garcia are now joined by Al Creedon on lead guitar and drummer Greg Frantz.

7/15 @ Signal Kitchen
Woods

Parquet Courts
w/ TBD
Doors: 8:30, Show: 9
$10, 18+ – Tickets available at Pure Pop Records or online at Ticketfly.com

The foundations of Brooklyn’s Woods lie in the small rear-house apartment bedroom of Jeremy Earl, who took to recording his eerily somber acoustic songs in 2005 as little more than a humble personal outlet. After two early albums and several singles which saw Earl still honing his sound, Woods released “Songs of Shame” in 2009 to widespread critical acclaim and offered the band a chance to develop their live sound on the back of a massive touring schedule. During this period, the live line-up solidified with the inclusion of multi-instrumentalist Jarvis Taveniere, bassist Kevin Morby and cassette-collage maestro G. Lucas Crane. READ MORE

Little was said about Parquet Courts’ debut effort, American Specialties. Released exclusively on cassette tape, the quasi-album was an odd collection of 4 track recordings that left those who were paying attention wanting more. A year of woodshedding live sets passed before the Courts committed another song to tape. The band’s first proper LP, Light Up Gold, is a dynamic and diverse foray into the back alleys of the American DIY underground. Bright guitars swirl serpentine over looping, groovy post-punk bass lines and drums that border on robotic precision. READ MORE

Twin Sister 11.30.12 + West End Motel (feat. Brent Hinds of Mastodon) 12.01.12

MSR & Angioplasty Media Presents…

11/30 @ Signal Kitchen

Twin Sister

w/ How Sad ( formerly Goose Hut ) +  Parmaga

Doors: 8:30, Show: 9
$12, 18+ – Tickets available at Pure Pop Records or online at www.ticketfly.com

Twin Sister create the kind of hypnotic pop you’ve been dreaming about since Galaxie 500 fizzled, cut with Tusk-era Fleetwood Mac thump, and a shot of Lynchian weirdness for good measure. They’re slack yet focused, a spark in the dark distance on a desert highway where speed is relative. Formed in Long Island two years ago, Twin Sister want to make music which you could feel comfortable cheating on someone to.

12/1 @ The Monkey House

West End Motel 

(featuring Brent Hinds of Mastodon)
w/ The Whiskey Dicks
Doors: 8, Show: 9
$10, 18+ – Tickets available at Pure Pop Records or online at
 www.ticketfly.com

West End Motel is a conglomerate of losers and poets and hobo-sexuals. Tom Cheshire met Brent Hinds in Atlanta on a corner under a bridge in 1993. They were panhandling and drinking cough syrup, and songs just started spewing out of them. Songs were written on an acoustic guitar and a bucket for drums, with the occasional toy piano in the background. Much booze was consumed and late nights turned into early mornings. They write and sing for the underdog and the everyday person. The music is honest, like a Filipino kid tap dancing in the wind. Throw Mike Shina, Stiff Penalty and Ben Thrower into the mix and you got yourself a good time. These men love music, it is that simple, and they write for people who love music. They write songs of love and loss and laughter. The new album “Only Time Can Tell” comes out in October, 2012.
