Kurt Vile & The Violators / Xylouris White / Spacin’

Showtime February 28, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $20 – $24

Kurt Vile and the Violators

Kurt Vile and the Violators bring music that plays like a cohesive acoustic experience, its musicality marks Kurt’s departure from an electric guitar experience to include a range of instrumentation with a large group of players. From the banjo he plays on “I’m an Outlaw” to the piano and lapsteel on “Life Like This,” and the myriad other instruments on other songs, including farfisa, resonator, arps, horns and synth, one never thinks about what exactly yr listening to as it all serves the song.

The heart of the record is “Stand Inside.” The music is quiet and the melody, like a hymn, folds in on itself, and embraces full strength in a sexy, floating forcelessness that slowly gathers into a wave that doesn’t go where you think it will or rather gives in to itself and celebrates a man willing to be defined by a woman and his love for her as witness to each other’s lives

Xylouris White

Xylouris White is a collaboration between legendary Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Jim White, icon of underground music.

Spacin’

SPACIN’, the newly formed Philadelphia act that’s bringing together kick-flippers, arm-wrestlers, and hackey-sackers in head-nodding, beer swilling unity. Inhales the same fumes that fuel the Velvets workout at the gymnasium, the Stooges sleazy-fuzz with Asheton on guitar, and the groovy zen of Nigeria ’70. Translation: blasted anthems of basement motorik fuzz-rock and mixed with circular ambient explorations that’ll send ya’ searching for Visine and peanut butter cups.
