Meat Wave

Meat Wave
Event on 2017-08-08 21:00:00
with Rad Payoff
In late 2014, Meat Waves 24-year-old frontman Chris Sutter found himself facing the end of the relationship he had been in since he was 12 years old. "When youre in something like that for so long, it doesnt shield you from the world, but it softens your reality," he explains. "A long relationship like that gives you confidence." He likens the experience of being single for the first time in his adult life to being an Amish kid on Rumspringa. "I was just going nuts, making all the mistakes that you could make. It made for a really whack, fucked up time-very confused, always unsure-and that led to a bunch of shit," Sutter laughs grimly.The Chicago punks had already made their second album Delusion Moon, a hardcore blast that castigated the weak excuses we ply for poor behaviour. That would come out in 2015. In the interim, Sutter started keeping a notebook to try and document the profound mood swings and torrents of anxiety that he was experiencing in the wake of the split, writing stream-of-consciousness poems about his feelings from day to day, city to city. One term kept coming out: The Incessant."I think that was the best way to describe this feeling-and I think a lot of people can attest to this-of this overwhelming, oncoming emotion," says Sutter. "Feeling overwhelmed by the biggest thing going on in your life and the smallest fucking thing: theyre all oncoming, like dominos. Its a swelling. A pyramid. A crescendo. It stems from living recklessly. And selfishly. And regrettably. During this phase of my life, this feeling would come up a lot-out to dinner with my dad, in the van on tour-and I never used to have this kind of anxiety."Putting a name on it made Sutter feel a bit better. The Incessant became both the title and guiding light for Meat Waves third album, but not before some wobbles on Sutters part. Whereas Meat Waves previous albums had meted out judgements on the world, now he was writing brutally unvarnished lyrics about himself: about his self-indulgence, arrogance, fear of the future, isolation, and feeling totally at the whim of uncontrollable emotions. On tour for Delusion Moon, he began reflecting on the "grey cloud" he felt the material would cast over Meat Waves past and future. "I got cold feet," he says. "I had never written music that was this personal and confrontational with the self. I expressed to the others that I wanted to scrap the songs and start over, which they respected. I was uncomfortable to share songs with people that reflected on a destructive period in my life." But despite Sutters conviction, something in the back of his head told him he would be a fool to abandon the material."There was this realisation that I felt like the music I had written prior to this was more of a defence mechanism of sorts by not writing about what was going on in my life and not confronting myself, and instead looking outward at other people and what they were doing," he says. "There are artists like Fiona Apple who I love and always look to-she bares herself and her soul and is so honest about her life, whats going on with her emotionally. I realised I could either write something that doesnt mean as much to me or I could write what means absolutely everything to me. I couldnt keep doing the same thing. I had to try and grow as a writer and musician."And thank god he did. The Incessant is a bracing, emotional punk record that confronts taking responsibility for your actions with dark humour and self-deprecation, drawing influence from acts like The Breeders, Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu, and, yes, Fiona Apple, as much as Franz Kafkas Metamorphosis, Jeffrey Eugenides Middlesex and the poems of Emily Dickinson and Sutters friend Hannah Gamble. On that literary tip, Sutter majored in journalism, and says his studies applied here more than ever. "I had this amazing professor whose whole thing was-and its very simple, but it stuck with me-what were doing is trying to uncover the truth, or truths. I applied that exactly to what was going on with me, because I tended to run away from the truth or ignore it."He cites the assaultive vocals and terse riffs of opener "To Be Swayed" as one of the truest realisations of that impulse. "My only question going into that song was, why the hell am I so wishy-washy and so controlled by my very changing emotions? Trying to describe your true feelings is really difficult, really exhausting, but I feel like I really nailed what I was experiencing." That wave of changing emotions is evident across The Incessant: Sutter is self-lacerating on "Mask" (written in a 10-minute blast after seeing Thee Oh Sees live), the choppy "Bad Man", and the spiny, drawling "Leopard Print Jet Ski", whose ace title came from looking an old friend up on Facebook one day, to find him bragging about having bought precisely such a thing. "I loved everything about the phrase," says Sutter. "How it looked, the imagery. It stuck with me, and I viewed the leopard print jet ski as a metaphor for liberation and freedom and confidence. The song is this ironic first-person narrative of fucking taking the leopard print jet ski out and getting away from everything, in a very selfish, wrong way. Its a metaphor for how I was living my life, and much like a lot of other songs on the album, running away from my problems."Elsewhere on The Incessant, Sutter exposes his most vulnerable side. Sounding like a less jubilant Japandroids track, "Tomosaki" is a nakedly sincere love song to the cat that he lost in the split, written while ugly-crying on the floor of the shared apartment he was about to leave behind. "Entranced by the mist of life / Does he sense Ive gone awry? / My guy / Let him roam outside / Meditate on his afterlife," Sutter roars. "That was huge for me as a songwriter. Ive never written a song like that. I think thats the power of something that touches you so deeply, like a cat that youre not going to be able to see any more." On the Ella Fitzgerald-inspired lament "Birdland" and rampaging snippet "At The Lake"-propelled by drummer Ryan Wizniaks stark charge-he reflects on a loss of innocence, and ultimately finds serenity.Bassist Joe Gac produced Meat Waves previous records, but for The Incessant, the three-piece achieved their dream of working with legendary Chicago engineer Steve Albini, tracking and mixing the album in just four days. "Between his music and the things hes done, bands hes recorded, hes the real deal," says Sutter. "I dont know if Joe would admit this, but the way he works and records, hes like a student of Albini. It felt like the next step for us, and it was a good, quick, raw experience." Albinis famed dynamic range is best heard in "Killing The Incessant", the records epic, raging crescendo of a closing song. "Incessant / Tried to see it / Ended eaten / Though now fear couldnt blanket me / No hand / Discriminates the other / Heres to killing / The Incessant / I dont need it / Heres to killing / The Incessant is defeated", Sutter rails in stark, stabbing fragments. A tumult of noise churns, before giving way to a peaceful fingerpicked acoustic pattern."Towards the end of writing this album, I began to wonder exactly what The Incessant sounded like," says Sutter. "Like, can I soundtrack that feeling? So thats how the crescendo came about. All that fucking tension. It was about shedding the ego. I think as humans we have more control than maybe we choose to believe sometimes. So this is trying to put it all at ease. Reject the fear and shame and the things that arent relative to my betterment and wellbeing. The acoustic ditty at the end is the sigh of relief. And a moving-forward of sorts."Of sorts. In July 2016, Sutter was due in Denver to be best man at his fathers wedding. The week prior to departing, he started feeling the same minor stomach pains that had plagued him (and which he had ignored) a year earlier. Upon boarding the plane, the sensation intensified; once he landed in Denver, he couldnt sleep from vomiting and shitting all night long. His new girlfriend suggested that it might be his appendix, so they took a trip to the emergency room. After a CT scan, the doctor confirmed Sutters girlfriends suspicions, and said they had to remove the appendix-which was two to three times larger than it should have been-immediately."I woke up unable to walk, or move," says Sutter. "It was the most physically traumatic experience of my life. I spent five days in the hospital-basically our entire vacation-and missed the wedding. The doctor told us that it was in the top five worst appendectomies shed ever seen, and that I could have died if Id waited any longer. I guess Id had a ruptured appendix for about an entire year, and it had ruptured again this past summer."Recovery took months, though he played shows against his better judgement. Sutters final face-off with The Incessant, that long, dark year of staring his darkest parts in the face, gave him a lot more empathy for the people he used to slam in songs in the past. "In general, writing about what I was going through made me more of a compassionate kind of person," he says. "I think theres a lot more to uncover within the self than to look outward at whats going on and annoying you around you." Another grim laugh. "I wouldnt want to write a song bashing anyone, besides myself."

DOPE D.O.D. + THA TRICKAZ + RJ HENRY
Event on 2017-09-28 20:30:00

Dope D.O.D. (NLD) • Electro hip hop dubstep
Révélé en 2011 grâce à leur clip What Happened, Dope D.O.D. ne cesse depuis de faire grandir sa réputation. Explosant les vues sur YouTube, faisant gronder les scènes des plus grands festivals d’Europe et enchaînant les featurings avec les plus grands noms, les deux néerlandais se renouvellent continuellement. S’ils évoluent dans un hip-hop hardcore et dubstep, ils le colorent de différents horizons musicaux. Et si on retrouve des clins d’œil et des influences de l’âge d’or du hip hop, ils n’oublient pas d’être contemporains et d’insuffler à leur rap de la trap ou de la drum’n’bass. Le flow agressif et venimeux du collectif est nourri par une esthétique gore, affichée à la fois sur scène, dans leurs clips et sur les pochettes de leurs albums. Ne comptez pas sur eux pour faire dans la dentelle.

The Casualties, The Vibrators, The Beat Seekers

The Casualties, The Vibrators, The Beat Seekers
Event on 2017-09-21 20:00:00
Black Heart Booking, A-13 Punk Rock and Lookout Lounge Present: The Casualties  The Vibrators The Beat Seekers TBA Thursday, September 21st, 2017 Doors: 7 PM, Show: 7:30 PM ADV/ DOS ALL AGES – Everyone must have a valid ID. Under 18 needs to be accompanied by a parent or guardian or have a notarized parental permission form: http://www.lookoutomaha.com/parental-consent-form ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS. For show/venue info go to: www.lookoutomaha.com The Casualties https://thecasualties.bandcamp.com/ The Casualties formed in 1990 out of a desire to return to the heyday of punk, an era that hung on into the early '80s and then started to fall by the wayside in favor of the very early grunge movement, as well as hair metal, synth pop, and new wave. But the band's lineup was far from stable in the early days. The initial lineup consisted of singers Jorge Herrera and Colin, drummer Yureesh, guitarist Hank, and bassist Mark. Even this inaugural lineup was shaky, with Colin stepping out for several months to finish his education, and Rivits singer Rachel stepping in to take his place. During this period, the Casualties put together a demo. The following year, the core lineup consisted of Colin, Jorge, Yureesh, and Mark. The band added guitarist Fred when Hank dropped out, and went on to make an appearance on the compilation Benefit for Beer. Soon more changes were in the works, with new guitarist Fred heading off to school. C Squat's Scott temporarily filled Fred's shoes until he returned a short time later. During this period, guitarist Hank came and went a second time. Another guitarist, Steve, also played briefly with the group. The Early Years: 1990-1995The Casualties stabilized long enough in the fall of 1991 to put together an EP, 40 Ounce Casualty. By the following year, the band was touring frequently and building up a fan base in their hometown of New York City. In 1993, however, more shakeups were in the works. Guitarist Fred and bassist Mark were out, and Jake Kolatis and Mike were in to take their respective places. The following year, the band appeared on another compilation, Pogo Attack, and put together a second EP, Drinking Is Our Way of Life. The four-track EP was never issued but later was incorporated into the band's 1999 release, Early Years: 1990-1995. Stability remained elusive, and drummer Yureesh and singer Colin dropped out. Shawn stepped in to take Yureesh's place. The group put together a third EP, A Fuckin' Way of Life, in 1995, the same year that Rivits drummer Meggers (aka Mark Eggers) took Shawn's place.For the Punx Temporarily settled in terms of their lineup, the Casualties traveled to London in 1996 for a performance on the stage of the Holidays in the Sun Festival. The following year, the band put out their first full-length album, For the Punx, and embarked on a tour where it supported the Varukers. Unfortunately, the lineup evolved again the following year, when the Krays' bassist, Jon, took over when Mike dropped out. Jon stayed long enough to help out on the Underground Army album, but jumped ship during the band's supporting tour across Europe in 1998. To take his place, the band recruited Dave Punk Core, who only stayed until 1999. With the addition of ex-Manix bassist Rick Lopez, the group started another tour. More tours of the U.S. and Europe followed in 2000 and 2001, along with the albums Who's in Control?, Stay Out of Order, and Die Hards, the last marking their debut on Side One Dummy. On the Front Line appeared in February 2004; two years later, the Casualties preceded Under Attack's late August release with a main stage slot on the Vans Warped Tour. All We Have, the band's eighth studio long player, dropped in 2009, followed by the Season of Mist-issued Resistance in 2012, and Chaos Sound in early 2016. The Vibrators https://thevibrators.bandcamp.com/ With a career lasting 35 years, vocalist/guitarist IAN "KNOX" CARNOCHAN, bassist PAT COLLIER, guitarist JOHN ELLIS and drummer EDDIE originally formed the VIBRATORS in February 1976, and their first gig was supporting THE STRANGLERS at Hornsey Art College in North London. They supported THE SEX PISTOLS at the 100 CLUB and were one of the bands playing at the now legendary 100 CLUB PUNK ROCK FESTIVAL, where as well as doing their own set they supported guitar hero CHRIS SPEDDING. CHRIS recommended the band to his then record company, RAK. The band's debut single "WE VIBRATE" came out in November (one of the first punk singles) and was followed two weeks later by CHRIS SPEDDING'S "POGO DANCING" single with the VIBRATORS as the band on that. Early in 1977 the band supported IGGY POP (with DAVID BOWIE on keyboards) on a UK tour, then moved to EPIC RECORDS and released the classic "BABY BABY" single, followed by their first album "PURE MANIA" which spent five weeks in the UK Top 75, peaking at number 49. A second single from the album – but a live version – "LONDON GIRLS", came out in the summer of 1977 and was promoted by a tour supporting ex-MOTT THE HOOPLE mainman IAN HUNTER. Bassist PAT COLLIER left soon after and was replaced by GARY TIBBS. The band released the single "AUTOMATIC LOVER" (March 1978), which not only reached 35 in the charts but also got the band on TOP OF THE POPS. A second LP, "V2" was released in April and reached number 33 in the British Charts, and is still regarded today as one of New Waves finest moments. JOHN ELLIS left soon after to follow a solo career and to work with PETER GABRIEL, and was replaced by DAVE BIRCH, whilst a fifth member was added with keyboard/saxophonist DON SNOW. However this line up of the band only recorded the "JUDY SAYS (KNOCK YOU IN THE HEAD)" single (a UK No 70 single in the summer of 1978). There then followed a new line up of the band: KNOX – guitar/vocals, EDDIE – drums, with new members BEN BRIERLY – bass, and GREG VAN COOK – guitar. This again proved to be short lived and KNOX left to have a go at being a solo artist towards the end of 1978. EDDIE carried on with the band, as well as drumming for THE INMATES (an R&B band). In early 1980 a more successful line up : KIP – vocals, EDDIE – drums, IAN WOODCOCK (ex-EATER) – bass, PHIL RAM – guitar, ADRIAN WYATT – guitar, signed to RAT RACE RECORDS. They released two singles "GIMME SOME LOVIN'" and "DISCO IN MOSCO", but the band split up at the end of the year. The original line up reformed in mid 1982 (KNOX, EDDIE, PAT COLLIER and JOHN ELLIS) and signed to ANAGRAM RECORDS, releasing a new version of "BABY BABY". This was followed by a single and album both called "GUILTY" before the band moved to RAM RECORDS, releasing the singles "MX AMERICA" and "FLYING HOME" and the LP "ALASKA 127" (named after PAT COLLIER'S studio). By mid 1985 the band had signed to CARRERE RECORDS for whom they recorded the "BABY BLUE EYES" single before moving back to RAM for the "FIFTH AMENDMENT" LP and "BLOWN AWAY BY LOVE" single. By the time the band signed to FM REVOLVER in mid 1986, PAT COLLIER had left to pursue a successful career producing bands, and was replaced by NOEL THOMPSON for the "VIBRATORS LIVE" LP. JOHN ELLIS then left (to become a full-time member of the STRANGLERS) and was replaced by MICKIE OWEN, and NOEL THOMPSON left and was replaced by MARK DUNCAN. The new line up released the "RECHARGED" album, the "STRING HIM ALONG" single and also the 1988's "MELTDOWN" album. MICKIE OWEN left and was replaced by NIGEL BENNETT (ex-MEMBERS) for the 1990's "VICIOUS CIRCLE" LP. This line up of the VIBRATORS toured regularly, and released a string of albums: "VOLUME TEN" (1990), "THE POWER OF MONEY" (a re-make compilation, 1993), "HUNTING FOR YOU" (1994), and "UNPUNKED" (an acoustic compilation album, 1996). 1990 lineup (left to right) Mark Duncan (bass), Eddie (drums), Knox (guitar/vocals), Nigel Bennett (guitar) In 1996, in their twentieth year, they started with a new line-up: KNOX – guitar/vocals, EDDIE – drums, with newcomers DARRELL BATH (ex- UK SUBS, CRYBABIES, DOGS D'AMOUR) – guitar, and NICK PECKHAM (ex- BIG BOY TOMATO) – bass, but by June that year they had become a three-piece (KNOX, NICK, and EDDIE). The band recorded the albums "FRENCH LESSONS WITH CORRECTION!" (1997) and "BUZZIN'" (1999). with the band doing extensive touring, (almost 100 gigs in 1999 – including the USA and Canada), plus the release of many albums. NICK PECKHAM (bass) left in Sepatember 1999 and was replaced by ROBBIE TART (ex- HEARTBREAK ANGELS). In 2002 the band released a new compilation of the first two albums the band recorded, closely followed by a new studio album ENERGIZE, both on Ian Grant's TRACK RECORDS. In September 2003 ROBBIE TART left and was replaced by PETE from Finnish band No Direction, and the band toured the UK and Europe with the UK Subs, doing really good business. In their long career the VIBRATORS have toured with the likes of IGGY POP, IAN HUNTER, THE FLAMING GROOVIES, DIE TOTEN HOSEN,and have had their songs covered by THE EXPLOITED, UK SUBS, GBH, REM, DIE TOTEN HOSEN, to name but a few. Now in 2011 the band celebrate 35 years of making records and touring heavily. Get ready for another 30 years of PURE MANIA! The Beat Seekers https://thebeatseekers.bandcamp.com/ Rock n' Roll aint dead, It's just waking up. In a watered down glass of phony indie pop and cookie cutter rock, The Beat Seekers bring you a shot of genuine American Rock n' Roll. The band is anchored by prolific lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter Keith Fertwagner. With four records released since the bands inception, these guys are no strangers to hard work and good music. The latest release "LOUD AND F**K!NG CLEAR" displays a wide array of influences and subject matter that is not easy to define, but definitely easy to swallow. The songs go from Guns N' Roses style riffing to punk rock anthems with a dash of twang and 70's rock, while still maintaining a modern edge and pop sensibility. Let's just say if music were soup, this batch wouldn't lack ingredients, and it would taste pretty fucking good. Throughout the Beat Seekers existence hardships, setbacks, and dumb luck have only made the fire burn hotter for Keith, and there is a flat out refusal to go away quietly. While there's been no shortage of adversity, there has also been no shortage of the need to overcome it. Some people make music because they want to, but some people do it because they have no other choice. In a world where everything is shiny and plastic, The Beat Seekers offer a healthy dose of something heartfelt and real. The Beatles wanted to hold your hand. The Stones wanted to burn down your town. The Beat Seekers want to hold your hand while burning down your town, taking over the airwaves, and starting a revolution. We're all in this shit together, let's make it count. Keith's songs have been featured in television shows such as 90210, One Tree Hill, Shameless, and Big Love to name a few, as well as movie trailers, video games, and the movie "Warrior". He has also shared the stage with Social Distortion, Joan Jett, Rancid, John Doe, Sum 41, AFI, and many more. With his crew of talented cutups, The Beat Seekers are ready to blaze a new path full of familiar rock and roll nuances.

GET READY ST CHARLES, IL, BECAUSE IT’S TIME TO BE AMAZED! CIRQUE ITALIA IS COMING WITH A BRAND NEW SHOW AND TONS OF EXCITEMENT!

Cirque Italia is a unique show in every sense. After five years of consolidation, a rigorous casting selection, and over 1,000 performances nationwide; this spectacular production has become the greatest version of a “traveling circus”. Cirque Italia is proud to have developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most innovative shows to be staged in the US.

Conceived by Mr. Manuel Rebecchi, and meticulously directed and produced by Chanté DeMoustes, Cirque Italia is a creative mix of the best elements of entertainment and technology. A “never-seen-before” production that combines acrobatics, dance, contortion, and even high-performance BMX and roller-skating. All performances are done in ways that push the physical boundaries of human abilities, which leaves audiences amazed and astonished.

Performers from all over the world are united under the magic spiral of the white and blue big top. They merge their extraordinary selection of skills and put together a stimulating spin on the industry by embracing the element of water. Cirque Italia has managed to find a delicate balance between the poetic and expressive power of the human body and the versatility and fluidity of water as an artistic scenario.

With a magnetism that draws you into your deepest fantasies, the water circus offers two hours of high-end entertainment. Mermaids and dinosaurs make dreamy appearances while awakening the inner child within you. Laser lights and bubbles act as interdimensional movers. Aerialists, acrobats, and contortionists take the human body to the next level – one you never thought possible!
