Showcasing genre-defying music and distinct spaces that have become a haven for creative endeavors that otherwise would not have a home in traditional performance spaces.
When G.G. Allin died in 1993, a lot of people breathed a sigh of relief. As Tesco Vee once said, “This feces-encrusted, jockstrap-wearin’ stinkbag was just gross.” That said, audiences flocked to see Allin’s transgressive, often coprophagic performances, to experience that mixture of fear and awe only the “rock ’n’ roll terrorist” could evoke. Allin has been gone two decades now, but a version of his backing band, the Murder Junkies, still tours, playing the Allin catalog, which includes such colorful ditties as “Anal Cunt” and “Raw, Brutal, Rough and Bloody.” The bill is rounded out with Busby Death Chair, Sons of Strippers, Public Sex and Dolly Rocker Ragdoll.
Fred Thomas of His Name Is Alive loves to fuck with people by taking left turns and throwing musical curveballs at every given opportunity, and a few opportunities that weren’t given at all. Experimental indie pop is the order of the day here, Ann Arbor native Thomas soaking in a ton of Detroit soul and coming out the other side with something that sounds like Mayer Hawthorne fronting Weezer. Kinda. The band has been around since ’99, which seems bizarre, though; they didn’t play any shows until 2002. Now the band is flying, and 2013 sees a new album, One Kiss Ends it All.
If Björk taught us anything, it’s that English-language acts from Iceland are going to be awesome, and Of Monsters and Men follow that train of thought quite nicely. The winners of the 2012 Músíktilraunir (an annual battle of the bands in Iceland), these guys put out their debut album, My Head is an Animal, the following year. Though the guys in the band do sport some tremendous facial hair, they’re exaggerating with the animal reference. This summer, the band will be all over the world hitting the major festivals, so let’s enjoy them while they’re here. The “King and Lionheart” single promises great times ahead.
Detroit artist Graem Whyte’s practice explores the space between architecture and fine art. His work utilizes a wide array of materials and often combines mythology, architecture, Chewbacca, the landscape, and patterns of mathematics and nature with a wry sense of humor.
