Musik   thirsty & miserable: Hildegard von Binge Drinking (Knertz, Würzburg) + (the fabulous mechanical) DENTICLES (Knertz, Mainz)
doors 19:00 - start 20:00
Fuck you, this is not a Spaßband. Witz ist nicht gleich dödelige Albernheit - und Wortwitz nicht gleich trottelige Comedy. Hildegard von Binge Drinking ist das - formal zugegebenermaßen polarisierende - musikalische Vehikel von zwei Leuten, die sich vorherig/nebenher unter anderem schon im Post-Punk-Spektakel Shokei austobten.

Auch hier täuscht die vorgegaukelte Ironie des Namens und der Kostüme über den Ernst der Sache hinweg, denn dieses Vehikel ist beileibe kein schnapsklebriger Karnevalszug. HvBD ist ein mit Chlorix betankter Wasserwerfer gegen die Durchschnittlichkeit, gegen Muckerpose, gegen Banalität und gegen die generell gegenwärtige Alltagsscheiße. HvBD sind ein Statement: zu brechen mit der Routine, mit Hierarchien, mit anbiedernder Ästhetik - im Großen wie im Kleinen.

Das Erleichternde: Es funktioniert ganz ohne Polit-Punk-Gerumpel, sondern in Form einer Melange aus pumpendem Old-School-Hip-Hop (im besten Sinne von Run DMC et al.), wabernd-drückendem Synth-Krautrock à la Trans Am und dem bewährten Post-Punk-Fahrgestell der bandeigenen Sozialisation. Spätestens ein Blick auf das Gesungene offenbart: HvBD sind eine erschreckend persönliche, ziemlich wütende Band, die ihr bestes tut, die eindringliche Ernsthaftigkeit mit ästhetischen Mitteln zu kompensieren, um nicht in Zynismus abzusaufen.

(The fabulous mechanical) DENTICLES sind das neue Quartett um den Weird-Rap-kontra- Prog-Produzenten oskar ohlson aus Mainz.
Viele Zähnchen formen ein gebiss und im Falle der Denticles eine supergroup- Prothese mit stilverbindendem Amalgam. hier blinkt einem hip-hop Zahngold ins Auge, hinten links kommt ein abgebrochener Post-Punk-Zacken zum Vorschein und das schwindende Zahnfleisch bringt die Affinität zum gewagteren sound der 60er- und 70er Jahre ans Tageslicht. Unter akrobatischem Einsatz von synths, Bass, schlagzeug und einem stylistischen spagat der Vokalistin winterismyname schaffen die Vier eine Reihe abstrakter Popsongs im Bandgewand: eingängig, aber gewitzt — systematisch und gekonnt chaotisch.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: JAIL WEDDINGS (L.A.s Bombastic Rock n Soul Big Band) + Charlie Megira & The Bet She’an Valley Hillbillies (Rockabily/Surf, Tel Aviv/Berlin)
doors 19:00 - start 20:00
If they aren’t L.A.’s biggest band, Jail Weddings definitely have L.A.’s biggest sound — an eight-person-deep rock ‘n’ soul revue that feels like the Pogues as produced by Phil SpectorNick Cave fronting The Shangri-Las, or a soundtrack to a Hollywood-gone-Babylon left unloved and unexplored since the last notes of classic L.A. noir/lore: power-pop, early punk, West Coast psych, etc.

Their latest LP, Meltdown: A Declaration Of Unpopular Emotion (Neurotic Yell/Burger Records) is a roguish journey into the “dissection of the personal Apocalypse” – a teetering over-the-top rock ’n’ roll catharsis that the L.A. Weekly named “The #1 Album of 2013” (beating out Kanye West and Haim).

While bookended by two femme fatale back-up singers, in the front/back of this unholy Wrecking Crew is main mutant crooner/songwriter Gabriel Hart and drummer Dave Clifford, both longtime collaborators formerly of sordid noir punks The Starvations (GSL). Dave’s musical chair covers even further ground to pioneering post-hardcore act The VSS (GSL), Pleasure Forever (Sub Pop), and the cinematic instrumental doomsayers Red Sparowes (Neurot Recordings, Sargent House).

Charlie Megira, the dream from Tel-Aviv with a face like Vincent Price and a style like Bloodshot Bill and Dirty Beaches taking on The Everly Brothers, The guitar virtuoso is a force of nature manifest as a Hasil Adkins meets John Waters greaser with influences from the first wave of rock n’ roll, outsider jazz, R&B and the 80’s underground, all careening down the highway at a hundred and twenty miles an hour. MUSIC Like some bastard love child of Link Wray and Johnny Thunders, Berlin-by-way-of-Israel rock 'n' roller Charlie Megira has mastered the art of blending 1950s-style rock guitar and spooky, blood-curdling howls.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: Shit And Shine (weirdo dance rhythm noise, UK) + Wels (2headed Noiserock, Berlin)
doors 19:00 - start 20:00 - danach Schokokuss
Shit And Shine may be best known for noisy, post-industrial rock but guided by the curatorial hand of Diagonal Records owner Powell, Craig Clouse proves that he can do dance music that's just as tough. The same rich vein of funk that gives Powell's releases their sensuous throb courses through Shit And Shine's self-titled debut for Diagonal. It's present in the relentless bassline of "Blowhannon"; it's in the syncopated backbone of "Value"; and it simmers under a cluster of textured rhythms on "Shower Curtain."

The signature tangles of noise are as present as ever, but they're more restrained than on previous Shit And Shine records. "Blowhannon"'s snatches of vocal and piano, sustained high tones and light-touch distortion make for something throbbing rather than explosive, while "Value"'s drum-machine thumps and wiry synths are reined in by the inexorable groove. "Shower Curtain" is the highlight, a scuffed, post-punky track with a lumbering drum-led groove and compacted vocal samples. Its synths sound charred and the drums are brittle, but it's all anchored by a meaty bassline. "Dixie Peach" is the biggest curveball, channeling strands of house, noise and post-punk into something both alien and utterly compelling.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: The History Of Colour TV (shoegaze/bln) + Unshaped Ahead (loop electronic/gr)
Starting out as a conceptual audio-visual project, The History Of Colour TV was created by Jaike Stambach in early 2010. After relocating to Berlin and releasing a string of cassette-only experimental EPs and videos, the project soon evolved into a full band line-up. The music underwent a slow but radical change, gradually incorporating dark, dreamy pop and abrasive electronic soundscapes. Their latest record Shapes Of Spilt Blood Spelt Love has just been released.

Unshaped_Ahead
aka Dimos Vryzas is based on minimal melodies. Violin loops,ambient atmosphere,storytelling and improvisation... http://thehistoryofcolourtv.bandcamp.com
