An eclectictic NC Music Party at King’s
On Tuesday, October 18th Blatant Mischief Promotions founder Bart Tomlin shares his birthday with anyone who wants to party to an eclectic mix of awesome local bands.
No Eyes, (featuring members of many other notable Raleigh bands such as Acid Chaperone, Deep Sleeper, Chimes At Midnight and No One Mind) will be throwing down their song-oriented Kraut-nudged Psychedelic Rock And Roll with driving force.
Hot on the heels of their new release “Return To Zero”, recorded and mixed in Bryan Olson’s home analog studio in Charlotte, NC by Charles Glade and Bryan Olson, and mastered by Greg Calbi at sterling sound in New York City, Shadowgraphs presents an authentic 60’s Psych-Pop experience with a wee hint of shoegaze, sweet harmonies and vintage vibes.
Salty and snarky, yet heartfelt and hopeful, Weird Pennies (of Raleigh) wear their hearts on their sleeves, yet hang the onus on you, creating a harrowing and beautiful microcosm of the human experience these days. The Hopscotch Music Festival guide had this to say:“Weird Pennies planted pop seeds into bizarre rock soil and let the fruits rot. They have melodies, but are far more interested in creating a bizarre atmosphere that recalls the ’90s, a time when being weird was the norm”
“MIAMI DICE, a band that plays Italo-disco that could have come straight off of the “Manhattan Gigolo” soundtrack.” – Yes Weekly.
“Smoove synths and a definite nod to the golden age of digital (aka ‘80s) dominate Premium Cut. “Moto-Vation” and “Flying Saucer” are woozy, warmer New Order on the soul tip. “Diamond Shores” is a more laid back Human League vibing with Herb Alpert. And the taking-it-all-in flava of “Condo View” probably sounds exactly like you think it should. Art Deco-splashed suits encouraged, but not required.” – My City Magazine
Th e Debut of Craig Hilton Samba Das Sombras featuring Sara Romwebber (Snatches Of Pink, Let’s Active) on drums and spearheaded by Craig Hilton will kick off the night. Craig Hilton has worked in varied and eclectic genres since age 10. Trained in classical and Flamenco guitar, Hilton has ventured into Metal, Experimentalism, Electroacoustic, Industrial and Avant Garde. His list of membership includes Loincloth, Here Lies, Paco Band, Sixtus V, and The Center For Transgressive Behavior. He’s collaborated with composers and artists such as Yannik Franck from Belgium, Maurizio Bianchi from Italy and Steve Beresford. This new duet is based on Brazillian Samba.
The title in Portugese translates to “Samba of the Shadows”.
