Performers at this Event
The Ex
The Ex Remove performer from this event
Dutch anarcho punks the Ex have been making an exhilarating, politically charged racket since 1979. Over the years, the band's sound--at its core a taut No Wave-inspired style of post-punk--has come to incorporate Eastern European folk music, funk, free jazz, Ethiopian music, and other disparate styles....
The Membranes

Mission of Burma
Mission of Burma Remove performer from this event
Of all the punk-inspired bands that came out of Boston in the early '80s, none were better than Mission of Burma. Arty without being too pretentious, capable of writing gripping songs and playing with ferocious intensity, guitarist Roger Miller, bassist Clint Conley, drummer Peter Prescott, and tape head Martin Swope galvanized the city's alternative rock scene, and despite a too-short existence, set a standard for excellence that has rarely been equalled -- a standard the band upheld when they unexpectedly reunited in 2002....
Scrawl Remove performer from this event
In the mid-1980s, frontwoman Marcy Mays, bassist Sue Harshe, and drummer Carolyn O’Leary emerged of Columbus Ohio the pioneering all-female trio Scrawl. Their sound was equal parts Young Marble Giants avant-amateurs and a more assured proto-indie pop that would influence the riot grrrl movement as well as solo artists like Liz Phair....
Wire Remove performer from this event
One of the first wave of punk groups during the late 1970s, Wire was neither nihilistic in the Sex Pistols tradition nor political like the Clash. With its brief, caustic songs, Wire was closest to the Buzzcocks' brand of poppy punk, but its art-school leanings took the band into more challenging and experimental territory....
Neurosis Remove performer from this event
Formed in the late 1980s, Neurosis was one of the first heavy metal bands to rework the genre's sound in a genuinely experimental fashion. Using bits of acoustic guitar, sound collages, and experimental noise, and offering a politically charged multimedia live show, the Bay Area group gained a strong cult following as well as critical acceptance....
Uzeda Remove performer from this event
Known mostly for their live performances and extensive touring, the four members of the Italian band Uzeda began playing together in 1987. At that time, the band was a five-piece consisting of Giovanna Cacciola on vocals, Raffaele Gulisano on bass, Davide Oliveri on drums, and Agostino Tilotta and Giovanni Nicosia on guitar....
Arcwelder Remove performer from this event
In 1988, bassist, guitarist, and vocalist Bill Graber formed the band Tilt-A-Whirl with drummer/vocalist Scott McDonald and bassist/guitarist Rob Graber. After being threatened with a lawsuit, they changed the name to Arcwelder in time for their second album, Jacket Made in Canada, released in 1991....
Zeni Geva
Zeni Geva Remove performer from this event
This Japanese experimental metal band (or "progressive hardcore" as they dubbed themselves) was formed in the late 1980s by multi-instrumentalist K.K. Null. The band channeled the relentless metal attack of Motorhead through the aesthetics of its homeland's famed noise music movement....
Shellac Remove performer from this event
After more than a decade of influence as producer (Pixies, Nirvana) and post-hardcore performer (Rapeman, Big Black), Steve Albini recruited Volcano Suns’ Bob Weston and Brick Layer Cake’s Todd Trainer to form the plodding, methodical post-rock Shellac....
Melt Banana
Melt Banana Remove performer from this event
Japanese noise rock band Melt Banana found more success in the U.S. and the U.K. than in their own country, gaining a small but dedicated fan base among American and European punk rock fans....
Oxbow Remove performer from this event
The provocative San Francisco-based quartet Oxbow formed in the late '80s around vocalist Eugene Robinson, guitarist Niko Wenner, bassist Dan Adams, and drummer Greg Davis. Combining the squall of bands like the Birthday Party with elements of free jazz and musique concrète, the group debuted in 1990 with F~~kfest, followed in 1992 by King of the Jews....
Mono Remove performer from this event
Japanese experimental group Mono came together in 2000, choosing to forgo vocals and concentrate instead on atmospheric, classical-inspired rock music. The foursome, bassist Tamaki (the lone female in the group), drummer Yasunori Takada, and guitarists Takaakira "Taka" Goto and Yoda, released their first full-length record, Under the Pipal Tree, in 2001 on John Zorn's Tzadik label....
Shannon Wright
Shannon Wright Remove performer from this event
The onetime frontwoman for the acclaimed indie pop combo Crowsdell, singer/songwriter Shannon Wright was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. A product of the area's thriving all-ages punk scene, she formed Crowsdell with bassist Paul Howell and drummer Laurie Anne Wall, debuting in 1995 with the underground favorite Dreamette and soon after relocating to New York City....
Pinebender Remove performer from this event
The experimental three-piece of Pinebender originated in the Chicago suburbs in late 1997. With their minimal instrumentation that consists of Matt Clark (low guitars), Chris Hansen (guitar/vocals), and Stephen Howard (drums), a slow-paced but melodic tone of experimental indie resulted as the three-piece played around Chicago for the next two years....
Three Second Kiss
Three Second Kiss Remove performer from this event
Three Second Kiss got together in Bologna, Italy, in 1993 under the inspiration of Rodan, Blonde Redhead, Big Black, and Jawbow. With their complex but abrasive tunes of hard-hitting indie, Lollypop Records contributed to the release of Three Second Kiss' first full-length F....
Nina Nastasia
Nina Nastasia Remove performer from this event

Prinzhorn Dance School
Prinzhorn Dance School Remove performer from this event
Brighton, England's Prinzhorn Dance School strips indie rock down to its sparest, nerviest essence, combining shouted, slogan-like vocals, clattering rhythms, and the occasional twangy or rumbling guitar in their minimalist, mysterious songs....
Red Fang
Red Fang Remove performer from this event
Based out of Portland, Oregon, Red Fang captures the loud and fast, anything-goes spirit of classic rock with their heavy stoner-influenced jams. The quartet, consisting of Bryan Giles, Aaron Beam, David Sullivan, and John Sherman, make guitars the focus of their gimmick-free brand of driving rock & roll, eschewing any prog leanings and putting the emphasis on the riffs....
