Dinos Boys, Dirty Fences, Soft Time and Cherry Pits

Atlanta’s DINOS BOYS dropped their first full-length earlier this year, cementing their long-deserved place among Atlanta’s finest garage and punk exports, along with labelmates Black Lips, Coathangers, and the Carbonas. On Last Ones, they’ve fully stripped their sound down to a no-nonsense blend of American punk, power pop, and rock ‘n’ roll, which allows the strength of their songwriting to shine through. An early contender for gum-chewing, skirt-chasing, proto-punk-worship album of 2014. For fans of Carbonas, Real Kids, and any first-wave Midwest punk.
Two track preview of the 12″:

DIRTY FENCES, from New York, join DINOS BOYS on the road to Meltasia to bring a second helping of gritty punk, albeit with more of a Dictators vibe from their booming chords and extended choruses. For fans of Rocket from the Tombs, Dictators, and any late 70s Brit power pop.
Their 2013 full-length:

Local support provided by SOFT TIME (stoner heavies, members of THE CATALYST) and CHERRY PITS (power pop, members of NIGHTMARE BOYZZZ, EUROTICS, NERVOUS TICKS)

Doors at 8, show must end at midnight so don’t be late.
$7 for two killer touring bands.

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.

Silent Music Revival
presents:

BORDERLINE (1930)

“Judged on its own merits, Borderline is a ground-breaking work, dealing as it does with issues of race and sexuality at a time when such subject matter was still largely taboo and had only been previously tackled cinematically through oblique inference”

with live musical score by:

MIGHTY JOSHUA
http://mightyjoshua.com/

“Mighty Joshua moves listeners by opening minds and activating bodies through song. He encourages positive change with lyrics that raise consciousness in his community and beyond.”

8 PM (sharp)

Project Resolution

Come to Gallery 5 for the 4th installation of Project Resolution! Bring your short films to this monthly event. Free to submit, free to attend, free to critique.

Bring your short film or impress us all by making one just for Project Resolution. There are no limits on the content or type of film you can show and no one will screen the shorts beforehand. If you show your film, you MUST stay for a critique/Q&A with the audience immediately following your film.

Try to keep films under 15 minutes in length. If your film is over 15 minutes, contact us ahead of time as it can be scheduled as a special presentation at a future event. If there is time available, longer films will sometimes be shown.

Submit your film on DVD or media file at 7:00PM on August 24 at Gallery 5. First come, first serve.

Come with ideas for next month’s theme and vote on the best one at the end of the screening.

This free event is hosted by Gallery5. Donations are welcomed at the door. Drinks are available at the bar.

Secret Chiefs 3

Secret Chiefs 3 have switched in to high gear. Having just completed a national tour in October with legendary Italian Giallo Horror soundtrack masters, Goblin, they released their long-awaited “Book of Souls: Folio A” album in late November. Next they are touring the west coast in February in support of that new album, and, surprise of surprises, are doing so armed with TWO new 7” records in hand. These will be available in stores stocking through Revolver USA, but those attending shows on the band’s February tour can get them right away.

In truth, Secret Chiefs 3 is always in high gear. Most people don’t realize they have played well over 300 shows in 34 countries in the last seven years.

But with a long-labored-over album in the can (you can read about it in the expanded bio), and fresh supplies of oxygen in the lungs, fresh new surprise releases are bubbling up through the Winter pseudo-frost as if it were Spring!

This tour will feature the A-team line-up of SC3 familiars: Drums / Ches Smith (Ceramic Dog), Keyboards / Matt Lebofsky (miRthkon, Moe Tar), Bass / Toby Driver (Kayo Dot), Violin, Guitar and Trumpet / Timba Harris (Estradasphere) and Saz, Guitar and Keyboards / Trey Spruance (The Three Doctors, Mr. Bungle). The band is extra excited to be re-united in this configuration!
