Britain’s Nitzer Ebb are one of the most influential acts associated with the EBM (electronic body music) scene, as well as alternative dance in general. Since the early ’80s, the group, led by enthusiastic frontman Douglas McCarthy, have produced an aggressive, visceral brand of electronic music influenced by German industrial and new wave groups like Die Krupps and D.A.F. The group remains best known for the classic “Join in the Chant,” a single taken from 1987’s That Total Age that became a staple of dance clubs from Ibiza to Detroit. Subsequent albums such as 1991’s Ebbhead displayed more of an interest in pop songcraft, and found some success on alternative radio. Nitzer Ebb broke up following 1995’s Big Hit, which featured a greater presence of non-electronic instruments, but they reunited over a decade later, as their influence on newer generations of industrial and hard-edged techno artists continued to grow. After Industrial Complex appeared in 2010, Nitzer Ebb went on hiatus again, but they re-formed with all of their founding members in 2018 for a tour and retrospective box set.

Formed in Chelmsford, Essex, in 1982 by vocalist Douglas McCarthy, drummer Bon Harris, and keyboard player David Gooday, the group began experimenting with synthesizers and drum pads, fusing the bandmembers’ affinity for dark goth and punk rock with the emerging technology. A demo cassette titled Basic Pain Procedure appeared in 1983. After several popular shows around London during 1984, PWL producer Phil Harding began working with Nitzer Ebb and recorded their first single, “Isn’t It Funny How Your Body Works,” which appeared on the band’s Power of Voice Communications label in 1985. Three more singles followed during 1985-1986 before Nitzer Ebb signed to Mute in late 1986; the first Mute recordings were the singles “Murderous” and “Let Your Body Learn” in early 1987, just before the release of their debut album, That Total Age. After the single “Join in the Chant” was remixed by producer Flood (Nick Cave, Erasure), it became one of the crucial tracks in the growing alternative/Balearic dance scene, played out alongside Chicago house, Detroit techno, and Northern soul.

After the release of That Total Age, Nitzer Ebb toured Europe with Depeche Mode, and the latter band’s pop sensibilities appeared to inspire them. By the time of their second album, Belief, Gooday had disappeared (to be replaced by Julian Beeston) and Flood had taken over the producer’s role from Harding, nudging Nitzer Ebb closer to the dancefloor and shearing away the militaristic bent of much of their earlier recordings. Singles like “Hearts and Minds,” “Shame,” and “Lightning Man” were loaded with the cold aggression of earlier recordings, working well on dancefloors as well as college radio stations; the 1990 single “Fun to Be Had” even reached number two on the dance charts. The following year’s Ebbhead further consolidated their position with alternative audiences, with at least two well-known singles, “I Give to You” and “Godhead.”

Nitzer Ebb virtually disappeared from active music-making for the next four years, finally reappearing in 1995 with their fifth (and least industrial-sounding) album, Big Hit. The group became inactive, but McCarthy became a regular collaborator with Alan Wilder’s Recoil project, and formed the duo Fixmer/McCarthy with techno producer Terence Fixmer. The compilation Body of Work 1984-1997 appeared in 2006 and was immediately followed by set of new remixes titled Body Rework. After a reunion tour to support the releases proved successful, the group began working on new material. In January of 2010 they released Industrial Complex, their first studio album in 15 years and their first for the Alpha Matrix label. Nitzer Ebb then toured with Die Krupps, issuing the joint EP Join in the Rhythm of Machines in 2011. The following year, Basic Pain Procedure was reissued by Pylon Records.

Box Set [1982-2010] was released in 2018, containing double-LP reissues of Nitzer Ebb’s five albums for Mute, as well as empty slots for their other two full-lengths, which remained in print. Additionally, the band’s original lineup began performing for the first time since 1987.

Where The Oceans Meet Opening Reception

Freedom Tower

This compelling transnational exhibition of modern and contemporary art considers how crossing borders continues to shape our world.

The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition investigates the ways borders form identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. The artists’ inquiries range across mediums and genres, and attempt to answer urgent questions that concern us all today.

Where the Oceans Meet stems from the pioneering literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of two Caribbean writers, the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnologist Lydia CABRERA (1899–1991) and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard GLISSANT (1928–2011). Embodied by the works of art in the exhibition, their ideas explore how art can think and break through barriers of history, geography, and culture.

Where the Oceans Meet will offer a platform for questioning colonial and modern thought, and placing it into perspective. Its themes resonate in Miami, a city where oceans meet, so often imagined as a crossroads of the Americas and a space of transition par excellence.

The exhibition is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal.

MOAD MDC Presents: Where the Oceans Meet

MDC Museum of Art and Design

Museum of Art and Design at Miami Dade College (MOAD MDC) presents Where the Oceans Meet, an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant. The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition consider notions of shifting and porous borders—geographic, national, cultural, social, racial, ethnic, and linguistic—and how crossing borders has shaped our world. The exhibition is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal.

Museum hours vary.

Wednesday 1:00–6:00 PM; Thursday 1:00–8:00 PM; Friday–Sunday 1:00– 6:00 PM

                        600 Biscayne Boulevard

 

Artists Daniel Boyd and Andros Zins-Browne join curators Asad Raza and Rina Carvajal to consider ideas that underlie MOAD’s new exhibition Where the Oceans Meet. How have Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant’s writings and methodologies influenced practices in contemporary art and curation? How do notions the two Caribbean writers explored (such as globality, creolization, and cosmology) help us make sense of historic narratives and our contemporary moment? What does it mean to think, live, and act where the oceans meet.

 

This event inaugurates the Museum of Art and Design at MDC’s new exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet (May 26 to September 29, 2019) curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal. Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant.

A cult figure, underrated gem, and sorcerer, Mark Sultan continues to hammer out releases while touring incessantly, showing no urge to quit.

“It’s weird… Rock’n’Roll started out as my religion, but has turned into a personal responsibility, to do my part in keeping it all alive.”

After a legacy of albums and 45s on some of the most respected labels out there (In The Red, Goner, Crypt, Wick/Daptone, Sub Pop, Fat Possum, Bomp!, Norton, etc…), and an impressive list of projects (The King Khan & BBQ Show, Ding-Dongs, Almighty Defenders, Les Sexareenos, Spaceshits, etc…), his latest album, ‘Let Me Out’ (Dec 2018, Modern Sky/Dirty Water/Burger) is something else. He had to learn a few instruments, and brush up on his production skills, as he painstakingly played and recorded the whole thing at his Sound Imperfection studio, in Berlin.

“Mark Sultan breathes fire into genres that, in most hands, only gather dust”
Dusted Magazine

His unmistakeable vocals, instantly transportative melodies and ideas, use time as a tapestry, mood as color. Bound to be overlooked by the population at large, it somehow seems that’s the way Sultan likes it.

“Listening to this album is like that first time you heard a volume of Pebbles. A masterpiece of the genre. Pure Magic!”
4th Bardo

“(Sultan) doesn’t simply revive old sounds and old excitements, he ingests them and digests them, and regurgitates them as something new and personal.”
Pitchfork

“If there’s a Patient Zero in garage rock’s shift from emulating the troglodytic stomp of teenage Stones wannabes in 1965, to embracing the Golden Oldies pop and doo-wop of the years just before Beatlemania, it’s probably Mark ‘BBQ’ Sultan, who releases albums of catchy, clever garage-pop more frequently than most people buy shoes.”
Chicago Reader

“Sultan presents himself as an artist without many contemporaries.”
Pop Matters

This tour sees Mark as the notorious one-man band, ‘BBQ’, which has long been lauded as something very special, and has also allowed him to tour the world from the Americas to Australia, Europe to Micronesia to Russia, and everywhere in between, playing hallowed venues like the Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. His music has made fans out of people like Lou Reed and Jon Spencer, and can be heard as an unaware xerox throught the ‘underground’.

“The best one-man band alive. If you don’t believe me, watch him perform. It is absolutely otherworldly and WILL blow your mind. And that voice…”
London Times

“Like a haunted jukebox, complete with all of the static and anticipation, you can almost smell the filthy ghosts he needs to exorcise upon the stage.”
Metro

“(He’s) a criminally underappreciated garage rock cult hero who puts on a one-man live show so sincerely passionate that he makes most primitive rock’n’roll revivalists look like cynical imposters.”
NOW Toronto

And now, some links…

Firstly, Mark has made almost his entire discography available to listen to on his website. Hundreds of songs from many bands and projects over the years:

Reel Big Fish & Bowling For Soup With Nerf Herder

Revolution Live

This summer, ska-punk and pop-punk worlds will collide on the just announced Reel Big Fish and Bowling For Soup co-headline tour. Surprisingly, the trek (which kicks off on June 19th), marks the first time the long-running bands have toured together. Joining them is special guest Nerf Herder.

Bowling For Soup’s Jaret Reddick says, “There are those bands with which the fans tell you “you should tour with them’. Often times, you make friends with those bands, and you always say to one another, ‘we GOTTA tour together.’ Well, both those things have been happening for years, and this summer, while on the final cross country Vans Warped Tour, Aaron from Reel Big Fish and I decided we were going to make it happen! And we did! I could NOT be more excited for this summer! Two of the most fun bands on the planet together at last! People will have sore faces from smiling after this one!”

In trademark fashion, Reel Big Fish frontman Aaron Barrett adds, “We’re still doing that tour? I thought I pulled the plug on that terrible idea a long time ago!“

As one of the key mid-90’s ska-punk bands to emerge out of Southern California’s third wave ska scene, along with acts like No Doubt and Sublime, Reel Big Fish’s popularity hasn’t faltered over the years. Distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, sarcastic humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska, the group continues to tour the world playing shows to a hardcore fanbase that’s as devoted as ever. The band’s 9th studio LP, ‘Life Sucks…Let’s Dance’ was released in late- 2018 and has garnered some of the best reviews of their lengthy career.

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of Bowling For Soup’s long-celebrated career as a band. Over the years, the Dallas bred fun-loving, pioneers of pop-punk have released 10 studio albums, that generated mainstream success with hit singles like “1985,” “Almost” and “Girl All The Bad Guys Want,” and countless tours performing for millions of fans around the world. Recently, Bowling For Soup released a live album and DVD dubbed ‘Older, Fatter, Still The Greatest Ever – Live From Brixton,’ that perfectly captured the band’s relentless spirit and acclaimed cultural significance in the pop-punk stratosphere.

New Found Glory With Real Friends, The Early November, & Doll Skin

Revolution Live

Please Note: This show is at Revolution Live Outdoors (the America’s Backyard stage). All tickets are General Admission / standing room only. 

Hailing from Coral Springs, Florida, punk-pop band New Found Glory were formed in mid-1997 by vocalist Jordan Pundik, bassist Ian Grushka, drummer Joe Moreno (replaced by longtime drummer Cyrus Bolooki after the band’s first release), and guitarists Chad Gilbert (previously the vocalist for Shai Hulud) and Steve Klein. Having recently graduated from high school, the bandmates wasted little time amassing a cult following, eventually rising to the upper tier of punk-pop music alongside Good Charlotte, Saves the Day, and other Warped Tour-affiliated bands.

Renowned for their energetic live shows, A New Found Glory toured up and down the East Coast in the late ’90s, selling out the entire pressing of their 1997 debut EP, It’s All About the Girls, along the way. (The EP was released by Fiddler Records, which later reissued Girls with new cover art in 2003.) The full-length debut effort Nothing Gold Can Stay followed in 1999 on Drive-Thru Records, and the album was reissued later that year when A New Found Glory signed a major-label contract with MCA. Another EP, 2000’s From the Screen to Your Stereo, found the boys tackling a number of cover songs; the disc also paved the way for the release of the band’s first gold-selling album, the self-titled New Found Glory, which appeared later that year. The latter album marked the official debut of the band’s new moniker, which dropped the indefinite article A from their original name. A high-profile tour with blink-182, an opening slot on the Warped Tour, and an appearance in the teen flick American Pie 2 helped increase New Found Glory’s exposure, and they stepped back into the studio at the end of 2001 to work on a follow-up record.

The results of those recording sessions were released in the summer of 2002 as Sticks and Stones. Propelled by the hit single “My Friends Over You,” New Found Glory snagged a headlining spot for the 2002 Warped Tour and watched their album climb to gold certification. After the tour and its resulting hype, the band then reentered the studio with a newfound restlessness. The result, issued in May 2004, was Catalyst, which found their sugary punk-pop steeped in new influences ranging from hardcore to thrash to new wave. The concert DVD This Disaster: Live in London appeared later that year, documenting the band’s strength as a live act.

Catalyst peaked at number three on Billboard’s Top 200 and eventually went gold, propelled in part by the success of “All Downhill from Here.” Hooking up with producer Thom Panunzio (Ozzy Osbourne, Tom Petty), New Found Glory released their mature fifth full-length, Coming Home, in September 2006. As before, they immediately hit the road in support of the album, adhering to a lengthy schedule of headlining dates throughout the U.S. and U.K. with the Early November and Cartel in tow. The second edition of From the Screen to Your Stereo arrived in 2007, featuring pop-punk covers of songs like Lisa Loeb’s “Stay” and Simple Minds’ “Don’t You Forget About Me.” The group then joined the roster at Epitaph Records and set to work on a new album, Not Without a Fight, with blink-182’s Mark Hoppus in the producer’s seat. Two years later, New Found Glory went back to working with producer Neal Avron, who had worked with them on Sticks and Stones and Catalyst, for their seventh album, Radiosurgery.

Kill It Live, a live album that also featured a trio of new studio tracks, arrived in 2013. Also in 2013, the band parted ways with guitarist Klein after he was charged with several counts of lewd acts with underage girls. However, rather than replace Klein, the remaining bandmembers decided to continue on as a four-piece with Gilbert handling all the guitar duties. In 2014, the four-member New Found Glory delivered Resurrection, which found them diving into their punk roots with a renewed sense of purpose. The album was re-released in 2015 as Resurrection: Ascension, featuring two new studio tracks and a reworked version of “Vicious” with Paramore’s Hayley Williams. In 2017, New Found Glory celebrated their 20th anniversary with the release of their ninth album, Makes Me Sick, and a tour during which they would play several of their best-loved albums in their entireties. Makes Me Sick featured the singles “Happy Being Miserable” and “Party on Apocalypse.”

New Found Glory’s upcoming EP, From the Screen to your Stereo, will be released in 2019.

Baroness @ the Culture Room

Culture Room

Baroness are ready to color our world once more. Having recently revealed plans for their fifth studio album, Gold & Grey, the band is now trotting out some new music and revealing more of their plans to support the album.

The band recorded the album with producer Dave Fridmann. Gold & Grey is due June 14 and Baizley says of the disc, “The term I kept using was that I wanted to create something that was more kaleidoscopic than our former records. We were trying to say something new with our instruments, with our sound intact, with the spirit of the band intact, but not applying the typical conventions when possible.” You can pre-order the album here.

Meanwhile, Baroness have added onto their current tour schedule, booking a summer U.S. tour leg for the “Gold & Grey” tour.

Umphrey’s McGee

Fillmore Miami Beach

“Summer Tour 2019”
COMES TO THE INTIMATE
FILLMORE MIAMI BEACH
AT THE JACKIE GLEASON THEATER
FRIDAY, AUGUST 16TH, 2019
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, MARCH 22ND / 11AM
Jamband sensations Umphrey’s McGee brings its unique sound once again to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater for its Summer Tour 2019 on Friday, August 16th, 2019 / 7PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 22nd / 11AM.
Umphrey’s McGee’s constantly evolving sound channels a wide spectrum of influences while still preserving their distinct voice through crafty songwriting. With a massive repertoire of originals and note-perfect covers, their live shows are like flipping through the presets on your radio dial. Their A.D.D. approach to “progressive improvisation” utilizes a set of Zappa inspired hand signals allowing them to orchestrate their melodic creations on the fly.  The music of Umphrey’s McGee unfolds like an unpredictable conversation between longtime friends. Its six participants—Brendan Bayliss [guitar, vocals], Jake Cinninger[guitar, vocals], Joel Cummins [keyboards, piano, vocals], Andy Farag [percussion], Kris Myers [drums, vocals], and Ryan Stasik [bass]—know just how to communicate with each other on stage and in the studio. A call of progressive guitar wizardry might elicit a response of soft acoustic balladry, or a funk groove could be answered by explosive percussion. At any moment, heavy guitars can give way to heavier blues as the boys uncover the elusive nexus between jaw-dropping instrumental virtuosity and airtight songcraft.
General Admission tickets for Umphrey’s McGee “Summer Tour 2019” Friday, August 16th, 2019 / 7PM are $30.00 in advance and $35.00 day of show.  All tickets are on sale Friday, March 22nd / 11AM at LiveNation.com or charge by phone 800-745-3000 and at the Fillmore Box Office during normal business hours (Mon. – Fri., 11AM – 6PM and during show days).

Pedro the Lion and mewithoutyou at Revolution Live

Revolution Live

Capping off a fruitful 12-year long solo career, David Bazan resurrects both the moniker and mindset of his profoundly influential indie rock outfit, Pedro The Lion. The band’s new album and Polyvinyl debut, Phoenix, marks a return to form as the follow up to their 2004 opus, Achilles Heel. Phoenix maps out the emotional intricacies of growing up in Arizona with the songs themselves a darkly hopeful introspection into home and what it means to go back, if you ever can.

Since their formation in 2001, mewithoutYou have become a standard-bearer for their genre. Across six full-length albums and a handful of EPs, the Philadelphia band— alternately labeled experimental punk, post-hardcore, indie rock, etc.—have long put a premium on progression, never anchoring themselves to a single sound and instead gracefully wandering across stylistic lines.

JENNY LEWIS

Revolution Live

Jenny Lewis had her first taste of stardom when she was a child, appearing in a series of television shows and films. As she came of age, she grew disenchanted with acting and turned to music, forming the popular indie rock band Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett. Her work with Rilo Kiley drew upon the seediness of her native San Fernando Valley and nearby Hollywood and garnered great critical acclaim. However, she began to expand her horizons when she released a country-tinged solo debut calledRabbit Fur Coat. This established Lewis as a formidable singer/songwriter in her own right, and her reputation only grew after Rilo Kiley split-up, thanks to her rustic Americana album Acid Tongue and the slick pop sheen of The Voyager.  Acid Tongue debuted at 24 on Billboard’s Top 200 upon its release andThe Voyager debuted at number nine. Lewis has recently unveiled plans for her fourth solo album, titledOn the Line and set to arrive sometime in spring 2019. The follow-up to The Voyager promises 11 original songs and a personnel lineup on the album including Beck (with whom Lewis recently performed at Red Rocks Ampitheatre) and Ringo Starr, as well as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers bandmemberBenmont Tench, producer/bassist Don Was, and noted session drummer Jim Keltner.

Boy, can she sing.”  And then there was Coachella earning her further acclaim. Lizzo has quickly cemented herself as one of 2019’s preeminent pop figures,” wrote Consequence of Sound.“(Her) set only spanned 12 songs, but every track got the crowd grooving more than the last. The show attracted the most tightly packed audience in the Mojave tent across the whole weekend.”  This is a show not to be missed!

Taking Back Sunday

Revolution Live

Taking Back Sunday will be performing at Revolution Live FTL on TWO consecutive nights – Friday, Oct 11 and Saturday, Oct 12! Tickets are sold individually for each night.

In celebration of their 20th anniversary, Taking Back Sunday will be embarking on an extensive worldwide tour, paying tribute to their catalog – and their fans – with full album performances.

Taking Back Sunday will be performing their debut album Tell All Your Friends in its entirety. Each nightly set will offer a double-album play – using a specially designed coin, Taking Back Sunday will flip to play either Where You Want To Be or Louder Now in addition to Tell All Your Friends.

If you can’t believe that Taking Back Sunday have been around for 20 years, you’re not alone, because they can’t either. Although the pride of Long Island have had a handful of member changes over the years, the current lineup of the band – vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist John Nolan, drummer Mark O’Connell and bassist Shaun Cooper – have all been there since the beginning. From the band’s landmark 2002 debut Tell All Your Friends to their most recent full-length, 2016’s Tidal Wave, Taking Back Sunday have evolved from a key player in the early 2000s emo scene to a genre-defying rock band who have three gold albums without ever ceasing to push the limitations of their sound.
