Shows Of Note
Thursday, November 27, 2014

The name is Purling Hiss, the meaning - who knows? Its's a Philadelphia outfit assembled by Mike Polizze (Birds of Maya) and now a touring group. The Other Side Of Life is promoting this show and they have a distinct, if overblown, description which might help: "Purling Hiss became a full-fledged touring unit in 2010, revealing themselves to not only be purveyors of Rallizes Denudes/Vermonster-style guitar jams, but to have a serious 90's grunge/pop ethic not too far removed from bits of Bleach-era Nirvana." PH also has a new record, Weirdon, on Drag City. Louisville's State Champion is also on the bill, promoting their second Sophomore Lounge release, Deep Sh*t. The whole shebang-bang-band goes down at the New Vintage on Thanksgiving Night, November 27. You can get your turkey-stuffed body in for some kind of calorie-burning movement for FREE! What's not to like? Well, some folks might not like the music but we're not talking to them. Move it on down.
Here's "Mercujry Retrograde":

Is there an unending appetite for jambands in Louisville? Promoters and club bookers seem to think so, as there is a pretty steady stream of said bands through town. For the Friday after Thanksgiving, you can headband it over to Headliners for an evening of genre-hopping improvization from Dayton's own The Werks, which is all-you-can-dance, musical cafe style. Now, back in the olden days (the Aughts), bands were measured in part by the chart action of their records. The Werks big claim to fame is that in 2011, they were the number 2 top searched aritsts on Jam Magazine, behind only Phish. In 2012, they were Number 1. Well, take your plaudits where you may. They have a couple of new records: The Mr. Smalls Sessions, released in September and Dark Side OF The Moon, a co-performance with Dopapod and Papdosio. They have all the right markers, see? Getzy and Derek LaFountain open. Tickets are $12 Adv/$15 DoS.
Here's a 9:44 jam on "Heading South":

Eddy Metal's Rock For Kosair X is scheduled to happen at the Phoenix Hill Tavern on November 29, with a ton of bands, playing in all the big rooms at the Phoenix Hill. As The "X" indicates, this event is the tenth one that he has put on, with the cooperation of the Phoenix Hill and the many bands that have played for free for the last decade. The proceeds from the event are used to buy toys for the children at Kosair Children's Hospital and are delivered before Christmas. Tickets are only $10. Definitely a deal.Sponsors for this event include: B-Mart, J&J Old Louisville Music Shop, Music Go Round, Guitar Center, Stay Gold Tattoos, Imperial Tattoos, Kentucky Tattoos, Raw, Detoxify & Dr Dabber and WTFX & WQMF.Here's the schedule:9:00- 9:40 Tim Vacancy9:55- 10:30 Jayson William Allen10:50- 11:25 Jon Hager11:45- 12:30 Digggiveaways1:00- 2:30 MooseknuckleROOF GARDEN7:30 -8:10 Old Soul Envy8:30- 9:10 Johari9:30- 10:10 Unleashed10:30- 11:10 Maloik11:30- 12:30 Grindstonegiveaways1:00- 1:50 Rock Brigade2:10- 3:00 PunchdrunkSALOON7:30 -8:10 Year Of The Gun8:30- 9:10 Krosjoint9:30- 10:10 16 Bones10:30- 11:10 Signal The Revolution11:30- 12:20 Zebras In Publicgiveaways1:00- 1:45 Pantera cover band INFANTRY #3332:10- 3:00 Bury The Wicked

If jambands and screaming rockers aren't to your taste, then perhaps a bit of bro-country (which is just to the right of rock), courtesy of singer-songwriter Chase Rice will suit you. Rice has not quite achieved the level of fame that he clearly seeks (he was a contestant on Survivor: Nicaragua, where was a runner-up.), though he's made a pretty good start at it: he scored a bit of songwriting success with "Cruise," which Georgia-Florida Line released and the first single, "Ready Set Roll" from his new record, Ignite The Night, reeleased this August, went gold, while Ignite the Night debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Album Chart. It's also the name of the tour. He's now three albums into a country music career, with Country As Me and Dirt Road Communion released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Should he be able to continue the string, he might be playing Yum! next, so if you're a fan, head on down to the Mercury Ballroom on Saturday, November 28 and see what you think of his live show. Tickets are $20 adv plus fees.
