Calvin Johnson (K Records) w/Golden Boots and Josué Kinter
Apr

8:00 PM20:00

Calvin Johnson (K Records) w/Golden Boots and Josué Kinter

Calvin Johnson established K Records  in 1982 and founded Dub Narcotic Studio in 1993. He has performed with groups such as Beat Happening, The Go Team, Halo Benders, Dub Narcotic Sounds System, and The Hive Dwellers. He tours as a solo artist, and also performs as Selector Dub Narcotic.

He is touring in support of his new album “A Wonderful Beast.” Calvin entered the Audio Eagle Studio in Nashville, TN. using the premise “Rock’n’roll Will Never Die” as a starting point. Working closely with Producer Patrick Carney and Chief Engineer Marc Whitmore, the team tested the resiliency of such time honored materials as the electric guitar, modular synthesizer and trap drum kit, combining them in various ratios with musical elements like chords A, C and D minor. The results are the Frankenstein’s monster of an album, “A Wonderful Beast.”

Golden Boots are Tucson, Arizona’s tropical cowboys, continue to create their unique and diverse music distilled from the dusty depths and strip malls of the American southwest. Part rock, part country, part absurdity, and all weird, the toe-tapping ramshackle hydra that is Golden BooTs transforms again into their latest incarnation, the “Tropical Trio”. Founding members Dimitri Manos and Ryen Eggleston have teamed up with long-time collaborator and potential group hallucination, tidypaws, to form one the most unique arrangements of the group in their wildly varying 15 year history. Armed only with an electric guitar, omnichord, saxophone and their wits, the Boots have released a new album "H.A.L.T." and hit the road to bring the weirdness to the world.

Josué Kinter is a local singer-songwriter who's dark and dreamy sound is equal parts Bauhaus, Neil Young, and Townes Van Zandt. Josué went solo recently and established his backing band, the Dreamy Draw Boys after moving on from previous projects: deathrock band Hex Wave and surf-punk band Rum Drinker. This is going to be their first formal show playing a full 20 minute set of all new material.

Occupy Prescott - a new play by Andy Boyd

Occupy Prescott - a new play by Andy Boyd

Occupy Prescott - a reading of a new play by Andy Boyd, directed by Jenny Strickland
This play begins in the fall of 2011, when a libertarian rancher, an anarchist punk, an aging hippie, a radical priest, and a single mother gather in Courthouse Square in Prescott, Arizona determined to fix America. They all agree that the one percent is too powerful, and the rest of us are getting screwed. When they try to get more specific than that, though, they find themselves disagreeing about nearly everything. Over the next several weeks, unlikely alliances and relationships form among the Occupiers, and new possibilities emerge even as tensions rise. Occupy Prescott is a play about the beauty and fragility of progressive coalitions, why they fail, and why they matter.

The Ponies (REUNION SHOW!) w/Treasure Mammal and Sweaty Palm Trees

The Ponies (REUNION SHOW!) w/Treasure Mammal and Sweaty Palm Trees

Ponies raged from 2002-2005. They put out a CD on LA's now defunct DoggPony Records and a 7" on defunct Knifechase Records as well as one comp song on a cassette put out for a Chris Johanson solo show. LA based filmmaker, Donovan Vim Crony made a documentary of the band released in 2006. This is not that movie. 

https://youtu.be/3WwG_JOjHCE

Here's a video of Ponies at Holgas at Phoenix. It starts with IHYWYP. These shows will be performed with Phil Buckman in Sweaty Palm Trees. SPT are a humbler, more 'mature' Phil Buckman displaying versatile song writing skills, the same humor and spirit that made IHYWYP a massive interweb sensation in the mid aughts, and a baritone so golden the guy from Crash Test Dummies weeps angel tears nude alone in a dark room mourning the chick from the Cranberries. Backed by Matt Dieckman and David Wiersch, SPT is a total winner. 

https://youtu.be/9rNo3vRLI6s

Speaking of total winners, Treasure Mammal brings spiritual ascension every single time. 'Nuff said. 

Come celebrate the power of the creative spirit and shameless, boneheaded nostalgia this holiday season.

Trunk Space is so excited to welcome back Advance Base, on tour with Lisa/Liza, and Karima Walker.
Local support by: 
ROAR (solo)
Ben Nandin

Advance Base is the electronic solo project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone).

Using a two-handed arsenal of electric pianos, autoharps, Omnichords, loops, samples & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed tunes around his conversational, baritone vocals. The sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."

Doors at 7pm, show starts promptly at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10.

Sarah Dashew is an amazing singer songwriter from Los Angeles. A recent move to Phoenix has her feeling the western vibes and desert mysticism that have bitten us all. 


DS Yancey is a local musician. Back in the valley for a couple of years after a jaunt to Oklahoma City for several years. 


Brent Miles is the elusive grand statesman of the valleys singer songwriter scene. One of the best out there for sure!!!

"Born out of true friendship and a mutual affection for positivity through healthy catharsis, Austin’s Hikes – anchored by the technical, emotive songwriting of Nay Wilkins – writes songs that chant the stories of living fully and honor the love found in tight communities. After a tumultuous year, shedding a member and nearly ceasing to exist, the original quartet reunited to deliver fierce experimental indie rock, selling out shows and creating an experience to live for.

Lilt, the group’s most recent album via Community Records, offers a wealth of laments and triumphs, recounting Wilkins nearly losing his dad, almost losing touch with nature, remembrances of a missing best friend, and on and on. The songs breathe and leap, tied together by the production of Takaaki Mino (of the band Toe) and the group’s self-proclaimed ‘felt-rock’ sound, which combines moments of beautiful dissonance, a DIY aesthetic, and ties to the Emo sounds of years past."
