Rat Columns, Basmati and The Cales
Rat Columns (AUS): https://soundcloud.com/
“Rat Columns is a trio from San Francisco, California that generates dark, ill-fitting pop wanderings, introspective jangle and chime, mangled noises and various points between. The band was started by David West in the isolated environs of Perth, Western Australia, and following a move to the northern hemisphere the trio format was happened upon with the addition of Matt Bleyle (drums/guitar) and Jon Young (bass guitar). Matt Bleyle is well known for his warped pop acts Violent Change & Sopors, and the semi-legendary SF punks The Abi Yoyos. David West has a scattered track record consisting of SF post-punks Rank/Xerox and Perth ragers Burning Sensation, amongst others. The three recorded the LP ‘Sceptre Hole’ in the second half of 2011. As on the previous four-song 7″, James Vinciguerra of Total Control/Soviet Valves/AIDS contributed some drums to the effort. Sure, ‘Sceptre Hole’ flies closer in to the pop sun than before it also keeps a toe in the murky waters of guitar noise and dour ambience.”

The Valentine Museum Presents:
History, Ink: The Tattoo Archive Project
(back room of G5)
This exhibition focuses on the rising popularity of body art, specifically tattoos, broadly in American culture and locally in Richmond. In 2010, NBC’s “The Today Show” listed Richmond as the third most tattooed city in the United States, citing the city’s high number of tattoo shops per capita. This year the Valentine partnered with local photographer Terry Brown to document locally-made tattoos.

Pink Ink Fund Burlesque Benefit Show: Presented by Amy Black Tattoos & Deanna Danger Productions
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so to honor the month and the many women (& men) courageously fighting the cancerous beast, Richmond’s voted #1 Tattoo Artist is teaming up with Richmond’s voted #1 Burlesque Performer on October 17th to bring forth a show that puts the winning power back in the hands of those fighting this brave fight…to save, celebrate and decorate the tata’s!
The Pink Ink Fund is a non-profit organization founded by Amy Black that offers financial assistance, education and outreach for post mastectomy patients to receive reconstructive, restorative, recovery tattooing. Combining this cause with the feminine power of burlesque, aka “the art of the tease,” which celebrates women’s empowerment, self confidence, ALL shapes, sizes, colors & flaws, will undoubtedly *explode* Gallery 5 into an evening of tit-illation, raised spirits, hope & strength for survivors, previvors and women who are currently battling beast cancer.

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!
