IMAGINARY TOUR II - SoCal Dates 7pm - $5 - 21+ The Native Sade Slavey Squirrelly Arts Draind
Part of Mission Creek 2011. Heavy rockers Mondo Drag and Native with Blizzard at Sea and The Freemasons!
Hailing from North West Indiana NATIVE is made up of four friends who came together after realizing they were each the most serious about music in each of their former high school bands. The guys each decided to retire their childhood groups and instead come together to form Native in the Summer of 2007. The line up consists of Ed O'Neil /Guitar, Bobby Markos /Vocals and Bass, Dan Evans /Guitar and Nick Glassen on Drums. Since Native's inception they have self released the critically touted EP We, Delete Erase with many publications giving the disc accolades. CMJ remarked, "The brand-new four piece, Native, is making noise even before their first full-length. Their self-released debut EP, We Delete; Erase, their fresh, confident sound is filling their listeners with hope for some great things to come." Also, drawing comparisons to some pretty seminal bands Surfing Magazine described them as "It lands somewhere between a pissed off Minus the Bear and a caged up Botch". Word of mouth about their live shows and their EP caught the attention of US Label and Management company Sargent House who went on to sign the band and who has since re-issued the EP. Native have continued to tour non-stop building quite a following in a short time through their unforgettable live shows and well executed musicianship. A review of their live show in St. Louis from The Riverfront Times stated "There's something about the age-to-talent ratio that makes the post-punk of the barely legal Indiana quartet Native both impressive and genuine. Perhaps it's the group's intelligent guitar work, which recalls the geometric riffs of Jawbox and Faraquet- Or maybe it's the fact that the vocalist's yelps sound more like a pissed Ian MacKaye than a Warped Tour screamo outfit." While Alternative Press' live show assessment was, " For a band just a little more than a year old, Native play with the confidence and prowess of a group of lifers. " The early reviews in for their new full length album Wrestling Moves are no less flattering with Sputnik Music saying "Anyone who has listened to We Delete; Erase will immediately hear the transformation within the band. Native is still Native, but the progression here is a massive one. " NATIVE's debut full length Wrestling Moves was released on January 23, 2010 on Sargent House. The album was Produced by Chris Common (These Arms Are Snakes, Pelican) at Red Room Studios in Seattle, WA. http://www.myspace.com/nativein Caspian is a rock band from Beverly, Massachusetts, a seaside town 20 minutes north of Boston. "Most of the time we play heavy, other times quite soft. We always try to play with heart. So far we have recorded three albums. "Caspian has produced a wall of sound, to use a cliché, and manages to keep the massive structure standing without coming across as stretched or purposeless. These are beautiful pieces of music, unfolding as they should using the full forces of talented artists with passion for what they do." - BLOGCRITICS http://www.myspace.com/caspiantheband This five-piece ensemble consists of Carlton, guitarist Matt Rubadue, bassist Jeremy Hall, drummer Sean King and cellist Heidi Chestnut who recently released their debut album. Like "Sonoro(us)," " Chiaroscuro" is band that lives up to its name. Emotionally, "Chiaroscuro" also creates moody, brooding and sometimes angst -filled tone poems of purely instrumental sound that at times can overwhelm the crowd: it is a nuanced journey into the abyss. Formed in the summer of 2009, Chiaroscuro (formerly Skyline Transmission) have been writing and rehearsing for an eventful 2010. In January, Chiaroscuro recorded a full-length debut with the super badass John Congleton. Soon after, they signed to Future Recordings to release their self-titled debut. Tour plans for the summer and more happenings to come! http://www.myspace.com/chiaroscurousa

“Wrestling Moves was the decade's siren for me. The album sounds like the call to arms to begin a breakout year of young bands, vans and tourlife Tumblr pages. Of all the great records from all the great blossoming labels (read: close communities), Native nailed it with this release. The songs are not only ordered well in the album's flow - "Backseat Crew" being one of the best openers of the year bookended with the closing title track - they're just passionately executed in both their bite and pedal play.The common elements and timbre that ride throughout the record makes it a pretty even ground with little to no mood swings complicating the pick-up on the instrumental techniques and counterpoint to each other. With Daughters, These Arms are Snakes and Botch gone - it's time to welcome one of the next leaders as they help fly a new flag proudly. Silly kids, stop covering up your mediocre talents with make-up, and write something with some substance and passion again.”
