All proceeds from this show that would normally go to bands will go to benefit Food Not Bombs! In their own words...

"We recover food that would have been discarded and share it as a way of protesting war and poverty. With fifty cents of every U.S. federal tax dollar going to the military and forty percent of our food being discarded while so many people were struggling to feed their families...we could inspire the public to press for military spending to be redirected to human needs. We also reduce food waste and meet the direct need of our community by collecting discarded food, preparing vegan meals that we share with the hungry while providing literature about the need to change our society. Food Not Bombs also provides food to protesters and striking workers and organizes food relief after natural and political crises."

Zigtebra / The Lonesome Wilderness / Straight Straws

Zigtebra: Chicago's musical journey of self-discovery! "Zigtebra’s The Brave is the bold marriage of linear, catchy, pure pop minimalism and new-fangled oddity/intrigue. Clean without being slick, bubbly without being trite, and full of thoughtful musings, all laid out within the bands own gaga, dragon-fruitish and ticklish aesthetic. Oh, and it’s full of love — If you don’t know what love is, you might get a clue from this album."

Milezo: From Austin, TX. "Together they’ve assembled that slice of pop heaven that is Pathways, bubbling over with fuzzy shoegaze and rich, darker psych textures, intertwining so many different tastes and tones that it’s immediately addictive, quite catchy. Chalk this one up as another gem." - Laurie Gallardo (KUTX)

Mansion / Is/\Real / Consumer / DIE / Emeralds

Mansion: From Oakland. "They make music that sounds like they’ve listened to a lot of the bands that identified with New York’s No Wave scene, and puts them in camp with East Bay noise acts like No Babies and Stillsuit...Mansion don’t seem concerned with incorporating novelty instruments for interesting sounds, but rather seeing how many different ones they can wring from a guitar. Sometimes their vocalist sneers over stop-start noise avalanches, and sometimes she whispers over soft melodies." - Bay Bridged

Sea Giant / ALA / Eliza Battle

7:30 pm19:30

Sea Giant / ALA / Eliza Battle

Two tours meet up!

Sea Giant: Electronic indie rock duo from Spokane, WA. "Their sound recalls the minimalist post-punk of Bauhaus or Siouxsie and the Banshees, with backdrops of sparse, moody organs and keyboards punctuated with the occasional pop hook. Those hooks, though, recall New Order at their poppiest, with squiggly keyboard lines that latch on for dear life to the pulsing electronic rhythms." - Nathan Weinbender, Spokesman-Review.

Touring with ALA, a.k.a. ArthurLeighAllen from Massachusetts.

Eliza Battle: From Las Vegas. Their members share a passion for outlaw country, southern Gothic lore, and punk rock. "I didn't want to start a country band with a bunch of country artists," explains Shelton. "I wanted to start a country band with a bunch of former punk and hardcore musicians who loved country music." It's this unorthodox background that gives Eliza Battle their unique sound, described as Midwestern roots, Southern spirit, and Las Vegas flash. The band succefully combines the American tradition of storylling with an aggressive guitar attack and driving drums. Highlights from their first year include a spot on the main stage of the Punk Rock Bowling Music Festival, performing at the Squidhat Records showcase, and sharing bills with Single Mothers, The Dirty Nil, and Chain and the Gang.

Daniel Amedee & Gold Light

7:30 pm19:30

Daniel Amedee & Gold Light

Daniel Amedee & Gold Light: Living proof that a musician can be from New Orleans, but not necessarily be of New Orleans, a distinction that courses through his quirky, eccentric songwriting style, informed by a haunting bluesy vocalese that scratches the soul somewhere between Tom Waits and Captain Beefheart, and certainly belies Daniel’s 28 years. In fact, he’s been at it--writing and producing his own music, and getting by with a little help from his friends--since age 14.

Sasha Conda / Nova Joven / Raya

Sasha Conda: From Minneapolis. His musical output is highly conceptual in nature, straddling the line between psychedelic cyber funk, experimental techno, and tonal synthetic drone. His debut full length, a concept album entitled Bronco, is due out at the end of summer 2015 on the Moon Glyph record label.  He has shared the stage with the likes of Omar Souleyman, Hundred Waters, Dan Deacon, and Prince Rama. As the head of MJ MJ Records, Conda has curated hundreds of events and fosters DIY music as a way of life. 

Nova Joven

Lillie Lemon
Sep
25
7:30 pm19:30

Lillie Lemon

Lillie Lemon: Stripped down electronic grooves from Monterey, CA! The duo's instrumentation utilizes primarily synthesizers, with live vocal looping and processing. Songs are fueled by building crescendos and a unique hybrid of acoustic and electric sounds.

Lillie Lemon hails from the great Midwest, the land of long winters and short summers. Her songwriting is heavily influenced by the flux of the seasons, often substantial in lyrical content and dense in sound. She is personable and bright both on and off the stage, and gives listeners a sense of sharing in a unique and poignant musical experience.

Locals TBA.

Traps PS
Sep
26
7:30 pm19:30

Traps PS

Traps PS: From Los Angeles. Their new LP is "fourteen tracks long of abrasive and twisted punk rock – like 34 minutes of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Guitars are stringy and jarring but melodic, woven through these striped-down anthems like a metal thread that will cut you on any angle. Bass lines simmer and rumble under the harsh twang, providing a thick and groovy rhythm as punchy percussion does the rest of the gut-busting. 'Hectic' is but one way to describe these angular outbursts of purely original, funk-fueled post-punk. Fourteen tracks average out to about 2 minutes apiece, crammed with loads of blunt edges and angles that has the entire album staggering and tripping over itself in the best way possible." - The Styrofoam Drone

Free Kittens & Bread / The Smiling Faces / Hiccups / Andy Warpigs / CJ Melton

Free Kittens & Bread: Founded as an acoustic solo project in the small town of Princeton, TX inside Chase Spruiell’s unairconditioned shed.  After recording Recluse (2013) in the heart of summer, he moved to Austin where the full band took a formal shape including bass, guitar, drums, and the occasional trumpet. Every show produces high energy punk music mingled with the heart of old folk tunes.

Following the tail end of their Recluse tour, the band released their EP Puppet (2014), recorded at Audioconfusion here in The Valley! The record was met with reviews as “an infectious toe tapping head bobber,” and a “punky folk country mashup that’s hard to beat” (Aimless Skylarking).

Dérive / Consumer / Sonoran Chorus / Underpass

Dérive - In their own words: "Dérive is the name used by a group of musicians spread across Western Massachusetts. We formed in late 2011/early 2012 and as of August 2014 we’ve played more than 110 shows in over 30 states and have used a lot of local shows to raise money for various charities. To my knowledge all of those shows have been all ages. We put out a full-length album and some other recordings too. We distribute an open submission arts zine and record a discussion based podcast. We also furnish an annual scholarship for entering college students. We like to scream and dance and play things like accordion and trombone and loud noisy fun punk music."

Future Death / Red Tank! / Dent

Future Death: From Austin, TX. "Friendly noise, spasmodic punk, sugary pop, and the occasional black metal blastbeat having a sweaty cagematch in an Austin garage." - Rolling Stone: 10 Artists You Need To Know - June 2014

"Expect to listen to this record several times, either to take in the sheer beauty inherent in the twitchy, skittering noises and face-busting chaos or to simply gain an understanding into why the songs even exist. Either way, Special Victim is brutal, touching and culturally significant." - MXDWN

Sarah Donner / Dinosaur Love / Friends with Cars / Tommy Cannon / Scott Gesser / Stacey Gordon

Sarah Donner: Indie folk-pop star who has embraced the catlady inside her with powerful vocals, zippy guitar, and a candid stage presence. "With Pride" was nominated for Best Alternative Song at by the OutMusic Awards. Her quirky The Irrigation Song music video landed her a featured slot guest on NPR's You Bet Your Garden. She was also chosen as a regional finalist in the 2010 Mountain Stage New Song contest. In 2009, Sarah was a New Folk finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival.

She is a graduate of Westminster Choir College. After stretching her legs with musical theatre, she picked up a guitar, abandoned her classical roots, and started rocking out (with fantastic breath support). Her cold New England heart was transplanted to New Jersey where she fosters kittens when not on tour.

Dinosaur Love: Songs about dinosaurs!

Friends with Cars: Sweet uke songs!

Palberta / Molly and the Molluscs / DWARF / Doll Skin

Palberta - On tour from NY! This is what they say: "We love to rock and roll! We also love food! Music is the greatest!"

This is what someone else said about them: "Their music made me wonder about what it would be like if the whole landscape of popular music looked completely different. What if the Beatles never made it big? What if 'The Shaggs Anthology' was a six part TV series in the 90s?...Watching Palberta is sort of like watching incredibly imaginative children paint in another dimension. What's striking isn't so much any youthful naivety (I'm sure they know exactly what they're doing) as it is a total abandon and foreign approach to their craft." - The Media.

Joining them for this fun-filled night are locals...

Lonna Beth Kelley Hufman
Jay Hufman
Eli Kluger
Robin Vining

More to be added! Plus a full set by...

Cookie Tongue: From San Francisco. Quirky folk fairy tales with weirdo art band sounds. Tripping in a mystical journey down the Cookie hole, through surreal rolling sleeves of starlight, spellbound by Hebrew chants of the ancient and up the stray urban loneliness of technology, each song brings you into a different posture of listening, twisting you in a way you haven't been twisted before.

Best Dog Award / Oliver House / The Ricardos / Banshee Speak

Best Dog Award: From Tucson. A lovable, fuzzy, surf-ish rock three-piece with driving progressions and perfectly matched tones. The band conveys the complex landscape of their music with apparent ease in a light, resonant, and enjoyable way. With such an honest sound and endearing charisma, Best Dog Award finds their way into your heart through your ears--so quickly, in fact, that you may not even notice they're there so comfortably until they offer you some Pizza Rolls and hand you the N64 controller telling you it's your turn. They paint murals with their music like how Jackson Pollock might approach a canvas. Some strokes seem meticulous, others frivolous; some violent, and others almost invisibly gentle. Throughout, BDA's candid delivery is true to the art of creativity, a true delight to see and experience live.

Anthony Ruptak: From Denver. "Ruptak performs with raw, wild soul. His raspy voice channels a sound beyond his years, like a railroad bluesman trapped in a mountaineer's heart." - Luke Redfield

"His songs are like combines. Upon ignition the teeth and the gears begin churning and he just throttles it out and into the open – tearing up the fields...leaving the earth bare and naked and ashamed, but somehow grateful." - The Denver Syntax

7:30 pm19:30

Advance Base / Lesionread / Electrisad / The Blank Waves

Advance Base: A new solo project by Owen Ashworth, formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Walking the line between electronic pop and more traditional singer/songwriter forms, Owen Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, and nostalgia-obsessed tunes around his conversational, baritone vocals, using electric pianos, Omnichords, orchestral samples, and antique drum machines. The sound of Advance Base has been described as "depressed," "lo-fi," and "pop." The second Advance Base album, Nephew in the Wild, will be released August 21, 2015 on Orindal Records (US/AQ) and Tomlab Records (EU/UK).

Advance Base is named after the Antarctic meteorological station and psychedelic death trap that nearly killed Admiral Richard E. Byrd during the winter of 1934.

Lesionread: From Buffalo. A vibrant blend of electronica-lilted dotted lines and groovy soul experimentalism. Known for their punk devil-may-care approach toward an increasingly hectic and theatrical style and sharing the stage with international acts like Mac Demarco, Melt Banana, Michael Parallax, and Wild Nothing, Lesionread has quickly garnered the attention of many as well as attained fantastic reviews via Wondering Sound, Impose, and more. Consistently contributing a series of singles, cassettes, music videos, as well as extravagant and weird merchandise.

Oh, Rose: From Olympia, WA. They've recorded at Dub Narcotic Studios. Their new release due out in June...stay tuned here for a link!

"Wandering between shivering vibratos and dreamy swoons, Oh, Rose will shake your bones. The vocals can lift you away in hypnosis, as easily as they can command your attention...Oh, Rose is about feeling and living, and embraces the passions of life in the most human way. The band is always looking forward. The melodic drone of the guitar alongside the primal beat of the drums creates a transfixing canvas for the vocal melody to paint over. Rose’s voice is undeniably heavenly." - The Cooperpoint Journal.

Whitman / Andy Warpigs / Sonny Morgan / WOLFZiE

Whitman: From LA, on Folktale Records. Christopher Payne, who has performed as Whitman since 2002, specializes in the punctured and confrontational. Though his records specialize in noise-folk emotional polarity, live is when Whitman is his most vulnerable, alternating between unnerving quiet and unflinching hysteria. His newest album, Restoring Darkness, best captures this live anxiety through deflated instrumentation, stark guitar, and desolate rooms. The numerous contributors to Restoring Darkness include Corey Fogel (drums - EMA), Henry Barnes (electronics – Amps for Christ), Ezra Buchla (viola – Chelsea Wolfe, Gowns), and Sean Bonnette (vocals – Andrew Jackson Jihad), attaching greater appendages to the organism.

The Black Watch / Raquel Bell / Saw Fox / Lexi Locket / GABI

The Black Watch: From LA, playing as an acoustic duo on this tour. They've been called "a national treasure" with "17+ CDs of remarkable consistency." From a review of their 2011 release, Led Zeppelin Five: "It is the simple beauty of their shimmering pop songs—a marvelous confection that harks back to mid-period Beatles, the Soft Boys, and a sort of west coast Yo La Tengo."

Raquel Bell: Based in Gholson, TX, and touring to celebrate the release of her first solo ablum. For the past twelve years, Bell has performed in and toured with bands. She's the co-founder of MESIKO and the vocalist and midi percussionist for the art-noise pilgrims, Normal Love. Jessica Pavone and Raquel Bell both received New Music America grants for their playing in Normal Love and together formed the offshoot, Dark Tips.

In addition to playing in bands, Bell has performed in contemporary opera and has also made numerous compositions for art installations around the country. In May, Bell will be the artist in residence at The Museum of Human Achievement in Austin and will create individual hand-cut vinyl 7" singles with original artwork that will be available at the shows.

Bell's solo music is a mixture of country, folk, punk, and sci-fi played on organ and guitar.

This show's going to the dogs!!!

Pupppy: What began as a solo project in 2013 for singer-songwriter Will Rutledge developed into Pupppy, the Purchase, NY quartet lead by Rutledge (vocals, guitar), joined by Sam Skinner on guitar, Victor Massari on drums, and Nick Hasko on bass. Pupppy puts all their cards on the table in the form of nine charming pop songs on the band’s debut, Shit In The Apple Pie on Father/Daughter Records: songs that hark to personal and engaging memories of feeling dumb, puking at the MoMA, and all the unforgettably humiliating moments where something we don't like slaps us back into reality.

O-Face: Jangling, popping rock from Washington/New York States.

Canids: One man and his canine dreams.

The Smiling Faces: Recently enhanced with bassist, better than ever!

Dog Congress: New pups on the block!

Jon Heredia: Going away party for one of The Trunk Space's great volunteers!

Angelo spencer et les Hauts Sommets / The Ricardos / Cody J. Inglis

Angelo spencer et les Hauts Sommets: From Olympia, WA, on K Records. Angelo was born in Brittany and grew up in the French Alps where he learned to ski at the age of two. At the age of four his life took a twisted turn for the best upon hearing the soundtrack for the film The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. A music lover was born.

After playing in a handful of bands (including the Best/Worst band name ever "Johnny Cash is Dead"), Angelo Spencer moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2006 where he began playing as a one-man band. He has since toured and recorded with a variety of backing bands.

His latest release, Love in the Morning, comes out on June 23. With the help of old friends and amazing musicians Luc Detraz (Imperial Tiger Orchestra) and Karol Skonitcki (Super Fedor), it's a short, precise, and undeniably groovy love affair! With re-purposed autotune and raw, uncompressed sound recorded by Djan (the man behind the Larsen Records sound), the album is minimal yet so full...made for dancing!

Cody J. Inglis: Solo from a member of The Wavelengths.

CJ Boyd / Run-On Sunshine / Admiral Albuquerque / Enigma Machine / Got-the-Bends

CJ Boyd: Back for another visit to The Trunk Space on his infini-tour! Uses bass, voice, and loops to try and stop time. Oceans of sound become naked, lonely melodies that become something not yet determined. Since March 2008, this low-end vagabond has been on a perpetual tour throughout North America and Europe.

He frequently improvises with musicians from all over the place, and has recorded with Sandro Perri, Chris Schlarb, DMA, Danny Grody, and many others. In addition, CJ runs the music label Obsolete Media Objects.

Run-On Sunshine: Broken-hearted lyrics and half-broken keyboards/percussion.

Admiral Albuquerque: Sailing the seas of mile-high noise.

Enigma Machine: Glossy, gritty lo-fi synth music from one of The Blank Waves.

Got-the-Bends: Mostly improvised, sometimes drone, sometimes noise, ready to jam!

Dog Party / French Girls / JJCnV / The Christian Family

Dog Party: From Sacramento. Although both are still in high school, sisters Lucy and Gwendolyn Giles have been playing music together since the insanely young ages of 6 and 9, respectively. They create music with tons of harmonies that make these teen sisters sound like they’ve been touring for years. In fact, they’ve been turning heads in their hometown for some time, have already toured Europe last year, and recently put the finishing touches on Lost Control, their forthcoming album for Asian Man Records.

He kept the name, moved to Seattle, and has changed (and improved) his sound with every release. After years and albums of unique home recordings, the latest LP, Whatever Will Happen, was recorded at Phil Elvrum's studio, The Unknown, and will be released on Team Love Records. Zach's an original, a master of the moment, and a tall bottle of TopoChico Mineral Water.
