Sweet Knives
w/ The Missing Stares & The Chickenhawks
9:30pm at The Mothlight

In 2005 Memphis black-wave synth punk band Lost Sounds called it quits after being kicked out of a house in Stuttgart in the middle of a long long night. With that, four albums and numerous singles and outtakes releases were leftover, and the brutal live show would never happen again. As Jay Reatard (½ of the Lost Sounds songwriting team with Alicja Trout) continued to grow his hopeful career on Matador Records the other band members moved on down less-publicised roads. Rich Crook, drummer of Lost Sounds, formed Lover! and THING and toured as singer/guitar player. Alicja toured with River City Tanlines, Black Sunday, Mouserocket, and released solo recordings as Alicja-pop. Meanwhile time was healing the wounds that had caused the band break-up. Sadly Jay’s light died in January 2010. Alicja, Rich, and original member John Garland have brought back a set of tunes from the old Lost Sounds closet. Along with Johnny Valiant on bass they are called Sweet Knives, named after a song from the Lost Sounds 2004 In The Red “Future Touch” seven song EP. Lost Sounds was known for a sound filled with angst, paranoia, and anxiety all rolled up in a synth laden rock n roll tasty burrito. Sweet Knives carries on the quest with a new delivery, less likely to fall apart and fall off stage, and more likely to infect a room with a symphony of sharpened blades.

Goo Goo Dolls
w/ Phillip Phillips
7:30pm at Biltmore House

A Boy Named Goo had a catchy rock sound, and became one of the most successful alternative rock albums of the mid-1990s. It sold modestly in this time; however, it was not until the release of the single "Name" that the band experienced any viable commercial success. A Boy Named Goo became the first album in Metal Blade history to achieve double-platinum status.

The Goddamn Gallows
w/ Skunk Ruckus
9:00pm at The Grey Eagle
($12 adv / $15 DOS)

The Goddamn Gallows came from the heart of America's Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland and later in Los Angeles, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments. In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of "twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly", they began picking up stray musicians along the way - washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo - creating a sound referred to as "hobocore", "gypsy-punk" or "americana-punk", while never being stuck in any one sound.

9:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $20 adv / $22 DOS)

THUNDERCAT is the alter ego of virtuosic bassist / singer Stephen Bruner. Bruner found his instrument at the age of 4. That made him a late-bloomer in the house of Ronald, Sr., who drummed with the Temptations among others. His first bass was a black Harmony, and he practiced to the Ninja Turtles soundtrack until pops played him Jaco Pastorius. He joined thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies as a teenager, and spent road and studio time with everyone from Stanley Clarke to Snoop Dogg to Erykah Badu. Eventually the name Thundercat stuck, a reference to the cartoon he’s loved since childhood and an extension of Bruner’s wide-eyed, vibrant, often superhuman approach to his craft.

Against Me!

Meet Laura Jane Grace. Four years ago, the Against Me! frontwoman came out as transgender; 18 months later, she released the band’s sixth album, the fiery Transgender Dysphoria Blues, one which she began working on before her transition and helped document the struggles she was facing. It was an intensely personal record that took on a life of its own, connecting with thousands of new listeners drawn to Grace’s honesty and complexity while still pleasing Against Me!’s dedicated fanbase.
