Cruel Summer - 2011-12-04 - TKT004, Oakland CA


Cruel Summer
2011-12-04
TKT004 
Oakland CA

Equipment used:  Olympus LS-5 (w/built-ins)

Setlist 

As reproduced below, but for those who are sight-impaired.  Titles given were what the songs were called at the time.

Skinwalker
Venetian Blinds
Silent Star
untitled new song
White Flag
Carquinez

Recording (FLACs in a zipfile))

The lineup:  Josh Yule - guitar, Thea Chacamaty - voice & guitar, Chani Hawthorne - bass, Sean Mosley - drums

Here were my right-after-the-show impressions to my friends: 

"For me, the standout was the first band, Cruel Summer, who were from SF.  If you have heard of or liked Cold Showers or Dunes [look for some upcoming writeups!], these guys had the same sort of thing going.  

Apparently, it's a new band who have been around for several months...the bassist is gorgeous...and they sing about the Carquinez Bridge, so what's not to love?   A giddy mix of swirlcore and shoegaze, *definitely* worth keeping an eye out on.  As you can tell, I'm a sucker for this stuff, and I'm sure y'all the same way.  Yes, that's me being asked what was the name of the band, right before they play their new song they don't have a title.  [Of course, I answer wrongly with 'Manatee', who are the next group on, stay tuned!]  I had no clue, who do people think I look like I know anything?"

Okay, I better head this off at the pass...

"The bassist is gorgeous" comment is going to get me into trouble in certain quarters...like my wife, the bassist herself, any self-styled moralists agog at my objectification, etc., so at some point I should learn how to better self-edit, but I really can't go back on what I said without feeling deceitful, and it truly is symptomatic about how the deck is stacked when you're a female musician, so I left that in there to prove a point, which is...well...I'm not sure now.  Help?

Back to the music, and here's where I get myself in even more trouble.  I didn't want to mention certain bands, but 'Skinwalker' reminds me of a particular 90s UK group whose name rhymes with "mush", which is probably your brains at the point having to contend with all of my needless verbiage, the folks at Bay Bridged have a much more informed article which you can read instead of any further stupidity from me.

One of my fellow contributors has already made the band aware of this recording and has passed it along to them.  Which is good since I'm not sure if they'll want to hear from me now.

"And finally Weekend, who were well worth the wait.  thehappyone points out that this setlist wasn't as good as that from the apartment show. Still a great show. Oddly enough, the hall had emptied out a little by the end, and it was over by 7pm. It might have had something to do with the fact they stopped serving beer just after Weekend took the stage. Then again, anyone who'd like the previous two bands..."

Note:  There were two other bands that played "The Bay Brewed", we have exercised our editorial perogative in choosing not to cover them here at this time.

Notes from my partner in crime...

"It's taken a while, but I'm finally able to present Bay Brewed for your listening and viewing pleasure.

First off...the Bay Brewed. The idea is pretty clever. $45 to see 4 bands and drink as much beer as you can. The price was a bit steep, but judging from the crowd, it seems like some came mostly for the beer.

[The Verdi Club is also] where we went to the next day for Thee Oh Sees.  It is reminiscent of a high school auditorium during a battle of the bands competition, but I actually don't mean that in a negative way. And if Terry Malts and Weekend went to my high school, I'd be pretty happy.     [Note:  All these shows are forthcoming!]

Terry Malts kicked off the show and once again were amazing.  Don't know what else to say. You've seen em by now and know just how good they are. Phil only dropped his pick once btw. (Corey dropped his twice!)"

I'm not sure what this was about...


Two things about the 'secret location' (in effect, a house show) that caused a bit of trepidation right off the bat:

(1) there was a lot of people crammed in the small space
(2) we were up on the 2nd floor, how much weight can the floor bear?


But there was really nothing (well, not much) to worry about, everything turned out great in the end, and you couldn't beat the price (free).  Both these three-pieces have been getting some seriously good (and deserved) press, so that they would even consider doing this is cool beyond words.  

The Soft Moon went on and played a really good set, though I had seen them a few days before and so I wanted to give others a chance to get up close, at least that's my excuse, the truth was it was so crowded I got pinned a bit further back than what I was hoping for.  Weekend's set was amazing, and for that I was down in front, the video footage I shot should give you some idea, Kevin could have easily brained me with the head of his guitar, and probably *should have* for my impudence.


Due to getting bumped, my compatriot only recorded the first two Weekend songs, so we only have mine to go from, heavily re-EQ'ed as the mics were under somebody's purse at one point.  The Soft Moon effort is the usual dual-source blend.

Up close and personal with JPD and crew, in glorious 1080p video.

Need I say more?  The photos accompanying this writeup are *actual screenshots* from the video...which I've since adjusted a bit to overcome the red lighting, so it actually looks even better than what you see here.

The audio is a blend of my Church Audio CA-11 cardoid mics plugged into an Olympus LS-5 and the native iPhone 4S capture for high-end sizzle, with the latter mixed -15dB down as it's otherwise distorted as all get out.

Impressive as they got into full All Hallow's Eve spirit and played the set wearing clear lucite masks.  Luis continues his amazing display of shirtwear with the Public Image Ltd tee.  The new tracks availed really well, especially Alive, which is shaping out to be the best thing they have done to date, and was pleased to see 'Bones' also appear in the set.  About the only thing we didn't get was 'Phantoms'.

I was wearing a Angry Birds pig mask...you can hear an amusing exchange befor the encore...the significance of this in light of what I was doing (TMQ/Swingin' Pig) not being lost on me.  This recording has quite a bit of audience chatter, which I actually didn't mind at all...there were a group of kids that were very excited and wanted to crash around, but there's also a faction that likes to stand watching in silence, and not be slammed...and as you can imagine, they came to loggerheads.

They only brought 20 copies of their EP, so I ended up having to go to the Captured Tracks site to order my copy.  You should too, if you haven't already!

Ended doing this one more alone, as my partner in crime was a bit tired, and we would be seeing TC again in December anyway.  Quite a few people were eager to check them out on the strength of Henge Beat, which many deem to have been the best release bar none of 2010.

Despite appearances, I'm not actually the loquacious sort, so I'll let sometime-contributor and Redlands legend Markie describe them:
Featuring the magnificent Mikey Young of Eddy Current Suppression Ring on guitar and Daniel Stewart of UV Race on vocals . Stewart's monotone vocals fit perfectly with the pummeling rhythm section laying down a tense and infectious style incorporating late 70's postpunk/new wave with garage rock elements. But Mikey's off kilter licks and descriptive intonations on guitar are the real voice."

Let's just say that they lived up to expectations, and indeed may have exceeded them.  'Carpet Rash' is a juggernaut, and is one of the best things ever, and the rest of the set was not much worse.


Setlist is as you see it below, saves me some writing.



Because I was right in front and concentrating on video, my positioning was a bit sub-optimal in terms of the sonics, but I've done what I can to make it palatable.

 
A couple of songs really remind me of A-Frames, and of course the final song 'Meds' could easily be an ESCR jam.  Excellent performance all around, I was lucky to have caught the whole thing on film, right in front of Mikey and Daniel.

I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do...
Probably the Malts at their sloppiest show that I've seen to date, but sheesh, it was still head-bopping and body-shaking groovy.  Phil dropped his pick several times.   They lyrics are infectious and catchy beyond belief.  Examples abound.  "I Do", with some of the most affecting and heart-touching lyrics around..."People don't know what to make of you, they don't understand your point of view, but I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do...people say that you act so above, they say you don't know how to love, but I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do...just when I thought they might be rightI hold you in my arms and just squeeze you tighter..."  And Mall Dreams' soon-to-be- legendary refrain "A zombie is still a zombie in J.Crew"...their full length will be out on Slumberland early next year, and hopefully everyone will be singing along.

Hether Yell
Slødi Xaw are a new Eastern European punk goth garage group which has literally come out of nowhere to spew out peals of glorious feedback blended in with wry observations about the human condition ("we get down / we get high / we get born / then we die / this is the human condition") and to rip your fucking head off if you dare to call them a "girl group".

"All Too Human" is probably more than one person's choice for single of the year, but my favorite remains "Gold Sneakers", with it's rapid-fire drum into, flanged guitar noise and "I love...love you" chorus, disguising as a upbeat song when in fact it's anything but..."I know you've got some monsters in your mind / or maybe hiding up your nose / can't you just be happy to be alive?"...

The moment I saw Hether perform last November as a part of Blasted Canyons, I could feel she was someone very, very "special".  It's not often that a person is responsible for releasing not one but TWO great albums in the same year, and almost unheard of when it's for two different bands.  It's actually quite hard to say much more here, all I can do is let the music speak for itself and hope it moves you as much as does for me.

It is a testament to the good taste of the opening bands in Deaf Wish that I immediately knew they were going to be the real deal, even if I have to admit I wasn't very familiar with their ouevre
(I am now!)  Songs like 'Green Flame', 'Nerve Damage', 'Make It Hurt' and 'Mum Gets Punched In The Face' shake you and don't let go until you collapse in a heap.

Needless to say, after hearing them live, I bought all the vinyl on offer ("Reality and Visions", which I've been playing over and over and is a classic...and their newest, "Mercy")...

Sarah Hardiman's vocals in 'Mum Gets Punched In The Face' are stunning.  My compatriot thought they were a bit hit and miss, but I think if they missed, it's only because they wanted to, this is one of the most viscreal performances I've been lucky enough to witness.

Tim Cohen and company put on a good show for a hometown crowd, even if I'm more than willing to admit I was primarily drawn to seeing Wax Idols and Tamaryn.  What struck me on playback is how tuneful F&Os are, along with Kelley Stoltz and Sonny and the Sunsets and the more laid-back Thee Oh Sees material, this is a signature San Francisco vibe (note: doesn't necessarily mean low-fi...)  

Speaking of which, spot anyone familiar?

Individual links are to YouTube videos.

I've been minimizing commentary (better to be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt) recently but have to say that the DDG set this time around, even with some technical difficulties surrounding Jules' guitar, was even more tight then the previous times we had seen them last year.  It's uncommon for me to enjoy a band's slower tracks more than their faster paced ones, but this was an exception...Kristin's...er, Dee Dee's vocal delivery was enough to bring the house down, especially on tracks like 'Hold Your Hand' and 'In My Head'...but most of all, the phenomenal encore track 'Coming Down'...I'm hoping they follow groups like The Joy Formidable in getting some national television exposure, even if I probably won't want to catch them in any venues much larger than the GAMH.

Blasted Canyons July / August 2011 shows

Fedewa, Finken, Jones, The Uptown Oakland July 28th, 2011

It's my pleasure to bring to you the purveyors of one of my favorite LPs of 2011 (so far).  Blasted Canyons' #1 album is a sheer delight for those who like face-meltin' noize-psyche-garage-rock, the proverbial brown note for making the 24th-and-Church "hipster" set check the insides of their boxers for stains.  So don't you dare even consider going on until YOU HAVE BOUGHT THE DAMN THING.  No LP player, you ask?  Well, you can try going to one of their shows and hunting down a CD promo copy (I much prefer the vinyl, but did buy it on CD as well).  Or wait for the download card.  Or pick up a turntable and spin some wax to create your own personal digital version.

Let's face it, I was not put on this green earth to pump out blogorrhea like some balding failed post-rocker-turned-Pitchfork writer.  I'm playing with fire just mentioning hipsters.  And it's not like I can really do anything to stop you, anyway.  So enjoy yourself while your brane melts to these jams.

Presented in chronological order...

Engine Works
San Francisco CA

Unfortunately, I had just flown back in from Vegas and was too tired to venture out for this one.

Tomzero review:

So imagine you're back in school and your friend's parents are out of town. Let's have a party!  You can set up a bar in a corner. Maybe stock Tecate and Miller Lite.  Might as well get in some whiskey and vodka.  It's your friends, so you won't charge, but you'll take 'donations' for the drinks.  His parents have a cool basement.  There isn't a stage, but some of your friends are in a band, and they'll be happy to play.  The mics might not always work, but hey, punk rock.

credit: OutOfFocusSF
Engine Room!

Pretty much sums it up.  It was like going to a house party except I didn't know anyone else there.  Early show?  I got their supposedly late-ish (9:45) and of course, the first band hadn't finished setting up.

To cut to the chase - first band - pretty interesting. 2nd - the return of hardcore. 
Unfortunately at this point a couple of *really* drunk people showed up and decided to start a mosh pit.  Unfortunately, the slamming wasn't contained to the pit and I saw a couple of people who weren't willingly slamming get knocked pretty hard.

Blasted Canyons started to soundcheck and immediately had mic problems. They finally fixed it, sort of.  They played a good set. Unfortunately, it didn't sound that way.  Feedback most of the way through.  I'd say maybe the mix was off, but there was no mix.  It's your friends playing in a garage.  The drums weren't even mic'd. and I think they gave up on putting a vocal mic by the drummer.  I was in a good spot at the start, but the moshers showed up 2 songs in, and I was forced to move.  I didn't get a single photo, but there was a woman at the front who i believe videoed most of the set. It'll be interesting to see if and where this turns up.

Same setlist as the Engine Works show from two weeks before.  Weird place in terms of vibe, kinda a wine dive bar with a great sound system and lots of space to watch bands, opened by the guy who runs the Independent...so the sound came out superb, in fact, it's probably one of our best pulls, except that I yelp all over the recording.  But it still must be heard, it's stunningly gooood.
