TONIGHT!  MONDAY APRIL 4th!
 9:00PM DOORS / $8.00 / All Ages
 
 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 RED EYED LEGENDS  + THE ETERNALS
 AT THE WAREHOUSE NEXT DOOR!!!!!!!!
 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 RED EYED LEGENDS
     featuring Chris Thomson formerly of Circus Lupus, Monorchid, Skull Kontrol, Ignition, and Kiki of the Dishes
 
 THE ETERNALS
     featuring Damon Locks of formerly of Trenchmouth, releases on Desoto, Thrill Jockey, Aesthetics
 
 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 It would be a real shame if you were to not hear RED EYED LEGENDS. Yes it's awkward and uncomfortable, yet it is somehow strangely compelling. Then again, that's the way singer/guitarist CHRIS THOMSON likes it. If the name doesn't sound familiar, its probably cause you're lame. If you do recognize the name its because you must have some kind of love/hate relationship with Chris' iconoclastic over the top punk vocal stylings which are featured prominently on records by DISCHORD's CIRCUS LUPUS and TOUCH AND GO's MONORCHID, and SKULL
 KONTROL. Add to the mix the keyboard/guitar and vocals of KIKI YABLON who adds her garage riffs and farfisa stops to the RED EYED LEGENDS new wavey punk rock stew. It should be noted that Kiki is a guitar iconoclast in her own right as a former guitar player for Chicago's THE DISHES. JASON DUMMELDINGER is the bass player, who looks nothing like JOHN ENTWHISTLE, but his bass playing certainly resembles his. The boom and bombast is again a nice counter to the whirling keyboards and rudimentary guitar licks. And rounding out quartet is PAUL JOHN HIGGINS, whose jazz refined drumming is the only kind of drumming that would make sense.

 The Hidden Hand (stoner/prog/psych rock from MD)

 Warehouse Next Door
 1021 7th St NW WDC
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 
 Franklin Delano (File 13 Rec., from Italy)
 Marston & Ponieheart (Secret Eye Rec., from New Mexico, opening on current Bonnie Prince Billy tour)
 Justin Jones (DC hillbilly soul)
 Madagascar (gypsy folk dirges from Baltimore)
 
 Franklin Delano
 
 Franklin Delano is a four-piece band that formed in 2002 when Paolo Iocca (vox, guitars) met Marcella Riccardi (vox, guitars, lap steel, mandolin). Soon Vittoria Burattini (drums, percussions) joined the band, giving the songs rhythmic structure, while the elusive fourth member Stefano Pilia (double bass, bass, piano) began adding classical sophistication mixed with an experimental flourish. The band recorded the basic tracks of the album at Homesleep Studios in Bologna. Then they traveled to Chicago's 4Deuces/Clava Studio where their friends Tim Rutili and Califone added layers of guitars, percussion, keyboards, and noise. Former Red Red Meat and Califone member, and producer of Modest Mouse and Iron & Wine, Brian Deck produced the Chicago overdubs and then manipulated and mixed the result into the final version of their second album, ??Like A Smoking Gun In Front Of Me.?
 
 Franklin Delano has created a new and exciting view on American folk music. Textures blur with noise and haunting doubled voices emerge from a marsh of drones and reiterative guitars. On a solid foundation of drums and double bass is where improvisation explodes, lapsteel howls, and dueling male and female voices twist with interpretations of English words. Call it "the dark side of post folk," call it whatever? Their Italian perspective is unique in its way of transforming spaced-out blues into coherence. The band pushes improvisation into beautiful folk songs with their take on American folk/blues music derived from the other side of the ocean. Franklin Delano will tour throughout the United States and Europe in 2005, with support from File 13 and the label releasing their album in Italy, Madcap Collective.
 
 Marston & Ponieheart
 
 US singer/songwriter Jodie Jean Marston's album is a varied mix of hallucinatory dream traversing, and backwoods country and folk-styled acoustic guitar that recalls Carla Bozulich's recent, somewhat controversial treatment of Willie Nelson's classic ??Red Headed Stranger.? Intermittently backed by electric guitar and bass player Bobby Arellano and Jasper Spiecher on flute -- who add an extra shade of grey to an already dark musical palette -- Marston's slow-moving ballads are stripped of all frills, her vocals soaring over the frugal instrumentation. This simple but highly effective technique puts the listener into a hypnotic trance that's virtually impossible to snap out of until Marston's ready to break the spell. Like the Black Forest/Black Sea record, this is another oddity worth tracking down from the Secret Eye label. (The Wire)
 
 Jodie Jean Marston is a new name to me, but this young lady comes to the psych/chamber folk scene with a fully formed, vibrant voice. Her self-titled CD for Rhode Island's Secret Eye label is one of the more assured debuts I've heard in 2003. There's nothing flashy or pretentious about these eleven songs. They're stripped down folk-pop numbers with lots of banjo and acoustic guitars and only the slightest accompaniment (electric guitar, bass, and flute), a few well-placed effects and Marston's gorgeous vocals. The end result is sort of like a cross between Gillian Welch and the Iditarod, warm and plaintive as all of our favorite trade folkies tend to be, but the expansive sound sculpture of the opening and closing numbers hint at the otherworldliness that permeates the entirety of this disk. Fits in perfectly with the earthy ethereality of all of Secret Eye's releases. (Broken Face)
 
 Justin Jones
 
 Folk music has always been a home to storytellers. So it's no surprise that tales of love, loneliness and drug abuse can be found on Justin Jones's new album, "Blue Dreams."
 
 His Web site describes his brand of folk music as "Hillbilly Soul." The term accounts for his smooth voice and touch of country twang, leftover from his days growing up in southern Virginia. The new genre comes from the expressive music that has influenced him -- Led Zeppelin, Public Enemy, even the new movement in bluegrass.
 
 "I'm influenced by any emotional music that can make me believe in what the person is singing about," he says. And his songs find that poignant place. Jones doesn't try to prove the sadness in them; he matter-of-factly states a situation and lets us draw our own conclusion. Though he says that most of his music is not based on true stories, his past -- filled with alcoholism and loss -- may have contributed to his lyrics. "That kind of thing can lead to a lot of stories," he says. (Washington Post)
 
 Madagascar
 
 Chamber music, Yiddish folk, gypsy laments -- the members of Madagascar draw on these influences, and more, on ??Forced March,? their debut album for Western Vinyl. The nostalgic waltzes, melancholy dirges, and dance tunes on ??Forced March? are powered by a seemingly disparate collection of acoustic instruments (accordion, ukulele, musical saw, and glockenspiel, to name a few) that seamlessly mesh together in the hands of Madagascar. Haunting, wordless vocals occasionally join the mostly-instrumental mix, forming a music that is timeless yet unique, tragic one moment, joyous the next. It's like street music for some crumbled, forgotten city, folk songs for a long-extinct people. Engineer Rob Girardi, working at Mt. Royal Studios in the bands' home base and hometown of Baltimore MD, used a traditional approach in recording the band that makes ??Forced March? a sonic delight as well as a collection of excellent songs. The musicians largely played together in one space, sounds were captured mostly by room microphones straight to 2? tape, and very few overdubs were done. T.J. Lipple's ??purist? approach to mastering further ensured that ??Forced March? sounds like actual musicians, playing real instruments, together in the same room -- a rarity in these days of made-in-Pro-Tools, hyper-compressed albums. It's the first effort, but certainly not the last, from a new, unique voice in music.
 
 ??Like sitting on a rooftop in Zagreb, watching the crowds go by.? - Dave Heumann (Abouretum, Anomoanon)

Tomorrow!
 
 Tuesday, April 26
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 $7, all ages
 
 Eyes Like Knives (Boston post-punk)
 The Catalyst (DC heavy rock)
 Me Vs The Monster (NoVA math-rock)
 
 Blurring the line between noise and melody, Boston's EYES LIKE KNIVES creates rock music that is at once heavy but fragile. This delicate balance defines the sonic sound that is their signature -- wailing guitars, reverb-heavy, delay-drenched ambiance and dynamic male/female vocal interaction.  Think Drive Like Jehu, Quicksand, PGMG, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Treepeople, and the Pixies.
 
 Here are some websites:
 www.eyeslikeknives.com
 www.dopamine-records.com
 www.city666.com
 
 Eyes Like Knives can be found consistently playing the Northeast with touring and local bands such as Denali, TV on the Radio, Detachment Kit, Skeleton Key, 27, Engine Down, Officer May, and The Lot Six.

 TOMORROW APRIL 27
 ++++++++++++++++++++
 
 DEAD MEADOW
 THE CHILD BALLADS (Featuring Stewart Lupton from Jonathan Fire*Eater)
 SAMARA LUBELSKI (of Hall Of Fame, The Sonora Pine, The Tower Recordings, &
 Jackie-O Motherfucker)
 
 ++++++++++++++++++++
 Warehouse Next Door
 1021 7th St NW
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 ++++++++++++++++++++
 
 Samara Lubelski steps outside the context of long time collaborators Hall Of Fame, Metabolismus, The Sonora Pine, The Tower Recordings, & Jackie-O
 Motherfucker to deliver a solo vision from an alternate psychedelic folk universe.
 
 Samara is a native New Yorker who grew up in the haze of artist infestation of Soho. She has been involved with various projects ever since she was allowed to cross the street on her own for an egg cream and spilled it on John Cage. Through the time of playing in various groups, she has compiled an impressive resume that covers a myriad of genres, such as her work with the avant/psych/folk outfit Hall Of Fame, into the lair of those bohemian German musos Metabolismus, and onto the indie rock interpretations of The Sonora Pine, with some serious treks into the world of The Tower Recordings and off-world with Jackie-O Motherfucker, to name just a few.
 
 This album is a new level where Samara controls all aspects of the sound, started at the compound of Metabolismus in the forests outside of Stuttgart, Germany with the help of Moritz Finkbeiner and David Mueller. She returned to the U.S. and to her part-time place of work to complete her album at the Rare Book Room. Joining her were two of her old chums from the Tower Recordings, PG Six and Tim Barnes. Add to the mix the guitar aficionado Marc Moore, who has had his hand in Cat Power and the Lynnfield Pioneers and various other projects' cookie jars. Cynthia Nelson, who has played from one coast to the next
 performing solo material and collaborating with others, showed her verve on the flute.
 
 What all these elements have added up to on Samara??s album is a cycle of songs that are almost deceptive in their catchiness. Layers of sound that are delicate without being fragile. There is a resilience that makes this album balance on the edge of being the type of LP that is perfect on both rainy mornings and breezy spring days. With all of her experience and skill, Samara has learned how to create atmospheres of depth within her pieces. They do not rely on the virtuosity of the players, but on them unifying with each other and the words to create an ambience that is gentle and pulls you deeper into its folds. When it ends you are carried along on its last currents. You will be looking forward to the return of "The Fleeting Skies" as it settles into your memory.
 
 +++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 Dead Meadow, now a quartet with new guitarist Cory Shane, play an unusual blend of flawless Hendrix/Sabbath riffage, dreamy psych, heavy undulating rhythms, dirty blues-rock, and environmental jams, with eerie high-pitched vocals. Miles beyond ??stoner rock? gimmickry, this is a beautifully natural sound, played by expert instinctive musicians.
 
 Dead Meadow met in the DC punk/indie scene, though their music draws from more faraway sources. The band formed in the fall of 1998 from the ashes of local bands The Impossible Five and Colour, when singer-guitarist Jason Simon, bassist Steve Kille, and drummer Mark Laughlin set out to fuse their love of early '70s hard rock and '60s psychedelia with their love of writers J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft.
 
 Dead Meadow released their six-song debut in 2000 on Fugazi bassist Joe Lally's Tolotta Records, and a joint vinyl release on D.C. indie label Planaria Records. In 2001, the band released its second album,  "Howls From The Hills," on Tolotta. Where the first self-titled album was recorded in their practice space for a couple hundred dollars and plenty of learning curves, "Howls From The Hills" was born in a barn in Liberty, Indiana. Their sound fuller without losing its live essence, the band grew to encompass everything from ambient guitar drones to surging psych-funk sludge, blues-folk tunes to barbiturate space-rock, and some southern slow boogie thrown in for good measure.
 
 In spring 2002, original drummer Mark Laughlin reluctantly quit the group, replaced by old friend and previous collaborator Stephen McCarty (whose
 grandfather's farmhouse is where the band recorded "Howls From the Hills"). Also in mid-2002, the band found an unlikely patron in Brian Jonestown Massacre's Anton Newcombe, who recorded, produced, and printed Dead Meadow's live disc "Got Live If You Want It" on his Committee to Keep Music Evil imprint of the legendary Bomp label. Soon after, they recorded a Peel Session at the Fugazi practice space -- the first time the BBC recorded a Peel Session outside their own studios.
 
 Shortly after signing with Matador in 2003, Dead Meadow self-produced "Shivering King And Others" in the basement studio of the DC Pirate House over five months and during a busy schedule of touring. Along with the heavy rockers and bluesy numbers as on the previous two records, the band went deeper into the psychedelic realm, with chiming acoustic touches and lovely, disorienting ballads.
 
 With the addition of 2nd guitarist Cory Shane and beautifully spacious production, "Feathers" opens up the Dead Meadow sound still further, seeming at
 once more experimental and more accessible than anything they??ve recorded thus far. The record captures the famous intensity of their live show, but songs like "At Her Open Door" and "Stacy??s Song" reveal an obsessive beauty as jarring as
 sheer volume. Jason??s guitar virtuosity is at its peak, as influenced by the droning modal character of Eastern music as by classic rock riffs. Ever deeper, Dead Meadow remain one step ahead of expectations.

that would be a good idea. samara lubelski is great if you like subtle, textural folk, so it wouldn't hurt to get there early.
