9pm - $12 - All Ages

SHELLSHAG

NYC

https://shellshag.bandcamp.com/releases

Any musician you talk to about Shellshag uses one word to describe these DIY stalwarts: Inspiring. Over the years, the duo has grown into Brooklyn’s answer to Dead Moon, transcending the simple label of “a band” and becoming an institution in their own right. They are true out-and-out lifers, in it for the long haul, a reminder that perseverance is key in any artistic endeavor. While many of their fans were too young to have even heard about “punk” in the 90s, Jen Shagawat was already running the infamous Starcleaner Warehouse in SF CA, an integral part of the city’s independent music scene, and playing in many bands. Meanwhile, John “Shellhead” Driver was touring the country with his band 50 Million and penning songs for his stripped down acoustic project, some of which would later be re-worked as Shellshag staples and crowd favorites. The duo continue to run Starcleaner Records.

LUNG

Cincinnati, OH

https://lunglunglung.bandcamp.com/

Lung is a powerful two-piece rock band comprised of Kate Wakefield (electric cello and vocals) and Daisy Caplan (drums). Their sound is dark and commanding, evoking the driving sludge of early grunge/post rock with layered sinister undertones. Since their first show in April 2016, the duo has played over 300 shows in 40 states. In March of 2017, they independently released their first full length album, Bottom of the Barrel, which was met with acclaim from across the United States and publications such as; New Noise Magazine and The Fire Note. They were one of Daytrotter’s ‘Top 100 bands for 2018’ and recently worked the crowd into a frenzy at their SXSW 2018 Official Showcase. Kate and Daisy have worked in a multitude of projects in the past and draw from a rich range of influences. Daisy was a core member of the prolific rock band, Foxy Shazam and feminist punk band, Babe Rage. Kate is an ex-opera singer who has been writing and performing solo with live cello and vocal loops since 2014. Together they create an addictive and provocative sound that can best be enjoyed at a live show.
