Jandek (feat. Mike Watt, and BJ Miller of HEALTH) @ Crystal Cove Auditorium (UC Irvine Student Center)

ACROBATICS EVERYDAY is beyond thrilled to present the enigmatic and illustrious outsider music original…

JANDEK

appearing for the first time in southern California and featuring:

Mike Watt, Bass
of The Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Dos, The Stooges

BJ Miller, Drums
of HEALTH

at the Crystal Cove Auditorium at the UC Irvine Student Center.

Doors at 7:30 PM and performance at 8 PM. No other artists will be performing.

Tickets are $20 and will be available at brownpapertickets:

http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/139412

A small amount may be available at Acrobatics Everyday shows as well, though there aren’t very many between now and this event.

——

In short: Jandek has been releasing music on his own Corwood Industries imprint for 32 years. The genre of this music is undefinable and best gleaned through listening to it. Jandek is an intensely private person who has submitted to one interview in his career and only began performing live in 2004, unannounced and unadvertised at a music festival in Scotland. Every show is unique and features the “Representative from Corwood,” usually with some ensemble of local musicians. This is the first-ever southwestern United States performance by Jandek.

For a thorough primer on Jandek, consider this link: http://tisue.net/jandek/
or this one: http://wfmu.org/LCD/22/jandek.html

“It’s like somebody making music from a description of what songs are without ever actually having heard any. You listen to those sounds on his records and you think, ‘What is this? How did he make this? What does it mean that he made this?”
“Jandek’s ultimate mission could be to test the mortal limits of patience, tolerance, and understanding. Perhaps he’s the Messiah, dispatched to Earth as an Outsider Musician, giving the human race one last chance to accept the unacceptable, to embrace that which is infinitely difficult to embrace.”

—–

We are very, very excited to be able to present this show in Orange County. It’s humbling to think that, under three years ago, “Irvine” was all but a dirty word in the context of music, art, and performance. To be able to present Jandek at UC Irvine represents a huge milestone for Acrobatics Everyday, but perhaps even more of one for anybody who has ever been to a show or event we have put together. It is a manifestation of exactly how much we have been able to do as a community in changing what “Irvine” and Orange County as a whole can mean in the last few years.

LES BLANKS/ MANHATTEN MURDER MYSTERY/ COYOL @ Spaceland

at Spaceland

“A clattering, caterwauling howl of L.A. blues as refracted through a battered prism of the Stooges’ sludge-punk bloodbaths and indie-rock’s wounded, smirking ache”

“Les Blanks’ punk rock elements reflect The Clash’s influence on their songwriting… Joshua Caldwell delivers lyrics as almost spoken-word, impressionistic of some Lou Reed vocals in his Velvet Underground years.” –La.Cityzine.com

“Sleazy…nasty…seventies rock ‘n roll. If that’s your bag (and why wouldn’t it be) add Les Blanks to your radar, as they are just that — only they exist in the here and now of the 21st century. Easy touchstones for the band’s live sound would be a little CCR crossed with the soul of early Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.” –Aquarium Drunkard

With:
Manhattan Murder Mystery || Listen

Chasing Kings, Francisco the Man, Woolen, Toy Bombs @ Silverlake Lounge

Starting Nov. 1st we will be taking over the Silverlake Lounge every Monday night of November. We will have the support of some of our favorite local bands as well as friends and visual artists making each night unique. It has been far too long since we have given out any new music and we are very excited to finally be releasing two singles. Everyone who comes will be exposed to free downloads of the new songs and on the last night (11/29) we will be releasing a 10″ consisting of both singles. I implore that you take time on a Monday night to listen to great local music for free.
I hope to see you there,
Mike

DIRT DRESS with ALLAH LAS / CUM STAIN / OH DARLING @ Spaceland

at Spaceland

The Los Angeles-based band’s distinction is somewhat of a minor-key, classic rock, serious but not too serious sound that will appeal to the music enthusiast in most everyone… or at the very least will get feet stomping.

Reading Rainbow – Wasting Time

Reading Rainbow | Rock Insider

Reading Rainbow (Philadelphia, PA)

I first found out about this fuzz pop husband and wife duo through JAXART artist Slow Animal.

Reading Rainbow seem like they sure do love their 90s leaning psychedelic alt pop and I love that they love their alt pop. The track below “Wasting Time” is the perfect lo-fi sing-a-long for nights getting colder and colder.
MP3 Reading Rainbow: Wasting Time

You can also watch a new video for their track “Always On My Mind” over at Pitchfork.com.

AROUND THE LA SCENE

Tidbits, rumors, and gossip from around the LA music world.

- IAMSOUND Records are hosting their very own residency at The Echo every Monday in December. The free Monday nights will feature performances from some of the most promising new bands in Los Angeles including Rock Insider favs Therapies Son, Evan Voytas, Princeton, HAIM, and The Bell Brigade. [link]

- Ladies and Gentlemen of Los Angeles – please meet Hater X. He probably hates your band but feel better about yourself if you’re mentioned because indifference is a much MUCH higher insult. One of the best disclaimers on a website I have ever read on a blog. [link]

- The Deadly Syndrome
‘s Sweater Fest is back Dec. 11th at The Echoplex and will also feature performances from The Pity Party, Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits, Signals, and POLLS. All funds will be donated to Teen Impact. [link]

- LA Record has a great interview with Grinderman. [link]

- Have anything to submit to our Rock Insider concert calendar? We want your show listings! [link]

- We also adore Sean Carnage and he has a new section of his site for more underground show-listings. [link]

- When Vegans attack.
Former Vegan is being attacked by devout vegans. Peace loving hippies eh? [link]
