Dollar Tren Show Statement:
Life in the suburbs is painful. The midpoint between vibrant city life and peaceful country life is paved with strange purgatories. The struggle between surviving and thriving is perspective. “Dollar Tren”, named for a local discount store, is a collection of works by artists reflecting on suburban life and youth culture. Topics like smartphones, strip malls and teen celebrities provide a base point for distillation. Rather than simply satirize, the artists search to find connecting points between themselves, their neighbors, and their environment.

Late: Among the Rocks and the Roots Outsider Music Fest

mong The Rocks And Roots……..Bukkake Moms………Ersula…….….Yoga Demon………..LRKR……..Lacanthrope

Among The Rocks And Roots are hitting the road for a week long summer tour down south and we wanted to kick off things here in Richmond with some of our favorite genre less weirdos. Join us for a night of true “outsider” music.

Among The Rocks And Roots (Richmond, VA.)
Glorious cacophony.
https://amongtherocksandroots.bandcamp.com/
https://www.facebook.com/amongtherocksandroots

Bukkake Moms (Denton, TX.)
Supporting their new album titled “The Chronic” these sun baked Texans call to mind ironic punk psychedelic lords Butthole Surfers, with a touch of the “I don’t give a fuck” attitude of outsider kings Sun City Girls and the humor of Dead Milkmen.
https://www.facebook.com/bukkakemoms?fref=ts
https://bukkakemoms.bandcamp.com/

Ersula (Norfolk, VA.)
The Navy infused culture of Norfolk, VA. for many years made this area of Virginia a cultural wasteland of mind numbing conformity. There is hope however. There is a new avant garde springing up in this area and the experimental spazz rock of Ersula is one of the shining lights of this new vanguard. Calling upon the ghosts of jump cut maestros Naked City or the frenzied soundscapes of Fantomas or early Boredoms you gotta check this insane set by some of Norfolk’s finest. You don’t believe me, peep the posted video and become part of the Ersula faithful.
https://www.facebook.com/ersulaband?fref=ts
https://vimeo.com/112464561

Yoga Demon (Richmond, VA.)
You would think that with the intensity that Yoga Demon open their set that they can’t keep up this chaos. And you wait for things to slow down and the intensity to fall. And then you wait. And wait some more. And wait even more. And it doesn’t let up. Some drummers have the power. Some have finesse. YD drummer Joey Fichete is the rare animal that has both. Joined recently by noise maven Joe Legzz, Yoga Demon has been terrorizing Richmond audiences recently since their blistering set at this years Noise Fest, seemingly opening up for everyone since they are the current hot band in the burgeoning Richmond avant/noise scene.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Yoga-Demon/322332687784675?fref=ts

LRKR (Norfolk, VA.)
LRKR mastermind Alexi Zeren has been heading this Norfolk avant solo project for a couple of years. A revolving door of musicians come and go out of the LRKR realm, the only constant that remains is Zuren. LRKR’s guitar brings to mind the schizophrienic genius of Mick Barr or Agata.
http://earlywormgetsthedirt.bandcamp.com/

Lacanthrope (Richmond, VA.)
Xylon Otterburn is a rising star in the Richmond noise scene. Providing you with a more spiritual side of noise when Otternburn performs he is putting every thing in his soul into his performance.

8 $ THIS SHOW WILL START ON TIME. We are trying to pack in six bands in a little less than 4 hours so we better start on time!

Wildhoney, Plain Scrap and Positive No

Wildhoney don’t want to make noise. Well, they do, but noise isn’t the end game. It’s just a tool of expression. The Baltimore-based five-piece guitar band consciously eschews the genre label of shoegaze in favor of indie pop. They view shoegaze as more an approach to their music as opposed to a specific defining feature.

Listening to the group’s ambiguous guitars immediately draws to mind beloved experimental bands of the 90s like My Bloody Valentine, but Wildhoney’s deliberate pop sensibilities are there too, shining through in sparkling melodies amid layers of harmonies, vaguely recalling Kinski or Stereolab. This is band that doesn’t like limitations. Noisey
