Mouth Of the Architect, Set & Setting and Inter Arma

Mouth of the Architect:
http://mouthofthearchitect.bandcamp.com/

“The appropriately titled new album Dawning is their first in five years and their first featuring bassist Evan Danielson. It’s also their best work to date, a fully realized resurrection. Dawning showcases a band that now moves with an intricacy and immediacy that indicate just what Mouth of the Architect is: a veteran group comprising members with long résumés, who’ve now gotten a chance to begin again and know what to do with it. A wonder of tension and release, Dawning is designed to throw listeners into tailspins and, then, to lift them above the mess. That drama not only reflects the survival of the band that stuck around long enough to make this album but also of a group that’s now pushed past the cloister of post-metal: Despite the hardened visage of tough-guy screams, burly guitar tones, and Mann’s aggressive drumming, Dawning is a compulsively likable record, full of anthems meant for memorizing and environments meant for immersion. (Hell, “Sharpen Your Axes” could pass for millennial Incubus.) If you’ve ever liked Isis there’s plenty for you here; on the other hand, if you like, say, Abbey Road– or any music that tries to outstrip the structure of a single song while not abandoning its magnetism– Dawning deserves your time, too. ”

Dino 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″:
demdinosboys.bandcamp.com

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:
http://dirtyfences.bandcamp.com/album/too-high-too-kross

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.

Vinyl Conflict’s Punk Rock Flea Market

On Sunday August 31st, Vinyl Conflict Records presents the Richmond Punk Rock Flea Market 2014 at Gallery 5. The swap will be held from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM and will feature a plethora of punks young and old selling off their used shirts, records, tapes, zines, and any other punk/hardcore related gems from their collections …

Best part … it’s FREE!

WANT TO SELL STUFF?

Do you have boxes of band shirts and records sitting around that you’ve accumulated over the years and no longer want (or don’t know why you even bought in the first place), but just can’t bring yourself to get rid of? Looking for that excuse to finally purge your record collection? Need to make some closet space? Need to pay your rent or mortgage? Don’t even like punk or hardcore anymore (hey, it happens)?

If you are interested in selling some stuff, well it’s pretty simple (with a few guidelines below) – you show up with some boxes of old or unwanted band shirts and records, and some excited music loving scavengers dig through them and hopefully give your used goods a nice new home.

We are offering reserved tables but there were also be a limited amount of floor space at no charge. We encourage anyone interested bringing more than a couple of boxes to reserve guaranteed space – it will be $10 for half a table (4ft) and $15 for a full table (8ft).

Get in touch with Bobby at info@vinylconflict.com to reserve your table. While a simple process, there are a few guidelines:

- MUSIC related items only please (band shirts, records, tapes, zines, flyers, and things of that nature). We ask that you please refrain from bringing non-music related goods.

- The focus of this event is limited to punk, hardcore, metal, and other similar genres, so please make sure your items for sale fit into these categories

- used / second-hand items only please

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.”

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!
