The OME House Band is an open score and improvisatory ensemble that pushes everything you know about classical music out the window. The House Band is part of Oh My Ears (OME), and organization dedicated to the creation and sharing of new music by emerging composers and sound artists.
We will be performing Ravi Kittappa's "Shelter" which is a trippy micro to macro take on a Rolling Stone's tune, Terry Riley's famous open score cell-based work "In C", "Practices Encounter Entrainment" by Blake DeGraw, which is a gestural generated work, Charles Turner's "Cairn" which might actually be a work by Disaster Area, and "Moods" a short wibbly-wobbly landscape by Eric Delgado.
Doors at 7:30pm, show at 8pm, $6.
Chris Clavin: Founder of Plan-It-X Records & member of Ghost Mice and many other bands!

Haunted Summer: From Los Angeles, CA. "Windswept vocals, sultry strings and spacey guitar blend together beautifully. The whole thing is mysterious and engrossing enough that it gets under your skin and stirs your own private nostalgia." - Billy Gil (Amoeba Blog)
Red Pony Clock: From the sun-kissed shores of San Diego, CA, an ever-shifting musical collective with a penchant for jubilant horn arrangements, effervescent vocal harmonies, and confessional song-writing. Primarily a recording project based on the songs of Gabe Saucedo and Tony Prudhome, the live Red Pony Clock lineup can oftentimes swell into the the double digits, with members switching back and forth between a wide variety of non-traditional instruments, such as trombone, banjo, accordion, and vibraphone. RPC will pretty much try to work with whatever they can get their hands on. The same goes for their song-writing, which has been known to take from such diverse influences as mariachi, disco, country, jazz, and R&B.
More locals TBA.
Jack and the Bear: From Ann Arbor, Michigan. Their album By the Book: Folklore by Jack and the Bear is a twenty-track concept album inspired by Grimm's Fairy Tales, musical theater, and real-life industrial surroundings. Giving off a bit of a "Dark-Disney" vibe, the songs cascade one into the next, as an original story (influenced by a mixture of both fictional, and not-so-fictional modern-day current affairs) guides you through the duration of the album.
Hello! boy oh boy is having their last show ever (r.i.p) and celebrating the release of their compilation tape which will be available at the event for $5. First five people to purchase tapes will get a free poster! Come join us (if you want to) for a night of music and kindness!

boy oh boy: A small lo-fi sad pop dream you once had a long time ago where you fell down a hole and watched the sun rise from the bottom of it.

LadyBabyMiss: A composer, a lyricist, and a performer. Whether with her former bands (A Particularly Vicious Rumor; LadyBabyMiss and The Tigermen), performing solo, or acting as musical director for a production of Hedwig and The Angry Inch, it is the deep haunt and history of New Orleans that inspires it all. Her unique song structure and compelling lyrical choices will make you feel genuine emotion.
Michelle Embree: A storyteller, a reader and teacher of tarot, and a performer with a flare for spell casting. She holds a Master of Fine Arts in writing from Goddard College and serves on the faculty at The New Orleans School of Esoteric Arts.
Pigeon Pit: From Seattle, WA. "Stories from a young agender witch falling in love with her bicycle, navigating storms and streets and relationships, never searching for her home, because her home is beneath her, taking her through narrow streets inside her head, into bakeries and oceans and arms. Pigeon Pit is a collection of stories wrapped in sunburned skin and a brave heart from a small beach town."
Bummer Jam: From Santa Cruz, CA. "The Joanna Newsom of folk punk."
With local goodness...
Quintron and Miss Pussycat: They've been making genre-defying noise and hard rocking dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of their 14 full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments.
Miss Pussycat plays maracas and sings, as well as entertaining all age groups with her highly amusing technicolor puppet shows.
With local support from Fathers Day!
This show is in Hope Hall, across the courtyard from The Trunk Space.
