California’s Xiu Xiu has just released a collection of Nina Simone covers in an experimental jazz LP titled NINA. Overtly different than Simone’s original work, the album was created to “pay homage and say thank you to the way she has inspired everybody in the group to approach music.” Stream the album in full at USA Today, and look out for Xiu Xiu’s next original release, Angel Guts: Red Classroom, out this February. Listen to the LP’s single, “Stupid In the Dark,” here. Following the release, the band will set out on a month-long tour, hitting locations all across North America through March.

Silent Music Revival
During a Silent Music Revival event a classic silent short film is projected while local musicians act as the live soundtrack.
As an added twist the band does not see the film prior the event and therefore creates an improvised score.

MUTT and JEFF (1916-1926)
“The tall and short comic duo, created by cartoonist Bud Fisher in 1908 quickly became a part of American culture. They were one of the earliest comic strips to be adapted to animation, beginning in 1916, and were among the first animated characters to display distinct personalities” ~ Cartoon Brew (Jerry Beck)
with live musical score by:
“the place where acid jazz meets instrumental freak-outs then transforms itself into the dark recesses of your nightmares involving carnivals, and then rolls out an inspiring moment that can only be described as triumphant. I know that’s a jam-packed, drawn out sentence, but the truth is that Dumb Waiter can’t be described in just a single phrase.” ~ RVA Magazine (Shannon Cleary)
8 PM (sharp)
Two Shows Two Friends Benefit Show
All of the bands are local, except Lil Huffy is from Harrisonburg. We will also be displaying and selling art for the cause.
The show is $6.
This is a benefit show for two friends who have passed away. Half of the proceeds will go to the family of Bryan Jackson, and the other half will go to the family of Tyler Owen Nicolas. Both were musicians. Bryan was in Ghost Cat and Owen was in Vein Cranes, while he also was recently working on solo music.

Perfect Pussy, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan and Green Dreams
Perfect Pussy is a band that plays hard AND plays even harder.
“On stage, front woman Meredith Graves has the charisma of a star in the making.” -Billboard
“I Have Lost All Desire for Feeling, instantly evokes basement shows rank with fresh sweat, dark except for strings of christmas lights, windows shaking, overloaded PA bleating away, and the band across the jampacked room discernible only by the occasional upward-flung limb. If you make it to one of this Syracuse band’s two outer-borough shows this week, expect to leave with bangs dripping, ears keening, and heart pounding.” -Paper Mag
“One of the boldest new rock bands.” -Pitchfork
“These punk kids from the mean streets of Syracuse, New York, deliver high-energy slabs of mayhem-friendly post punk noise, a wall of guitar and Casio. Meredith Graves knows how to run her mosh pit like a dictator runs a birthday party.” -Rolling Stone
“One of the best debuts you’re likely to hear this year.” -Stereogum
