Double Down CD Release: Mother Truckers & White Rhino

Off in the not-too-distant future approaches the day of at least two CD release parties: on June 26th White Rhino (armed, above) will get down & dirty at 501 Studios (5th & Brushy) celebrating the release of the modestly titled Heroin Thunder. Meanwhile, The Mother Truckers will be celebrating their own release, Van Tour, at Antone's with co-headliner Micky and the Motorcars. And so and so and so. 


The Wailing Wall's CD release party at Mercury lounge, Friday 06.04

The Wailing Wall (brainchild of New York-based multi-instrumentalist, Jesse Rifkin) dress their folk songs with exotic influences and acoustic and percussive textures at times reminiscent of Animal Collective. The band's CD release party is this Friday at Mercury Lounge - a special show for the band as Jesse will be joined by drummer Alana Skyring (The Grates), guitarist Jason Anderson (K Records, ex-Wolf Colonel, member of The Microphones and Yume Bitsu), and saxophonist Gabriel Birnbaum (former member of The One AM Radio, Eli "Paperboy" Reed, and Drug Rug), among others. The Low Hanging Fruit is the title of the band's sophomore album, produced by Tim Fite - see them at Mercury lounge on June 4, it's a CD release party!


Picture Books Break Up

Picture Books just announced that they are parting ways, but remaining friends. The band does have a few songs recorded and some they are still finalizing so there may be one more release from the band. The band members have several other projects that they will be focusing on. Nicholas Papaleo and Nicholas Kelley have crafted an epic new band called Brontosaurus and will be playing shows as well as releasing an album later this summer while Josh Miller is teaming back up with the brothers Lanthrum (of Kid, You'll Move Mountains) as Good Light Bad Light. As always, Kelly Johnson will continue to melt faces with his band, Geronimo!, who just last month released their debut LP "Fuzzy Dreams".


Power Animal Makes Me Happy at DDG June 2

There is something about Power Animal that takes me to my happy place. Not really sure if it’s Keith Hampson’s calming vocal delivery, his beautifully orchestrated arrangements or his casually poetic, thought-provoking prose, but I just feel the need to share it with everyone. Grab Power Animal’s People Songs from Waaga Records, and your world might become a happier place too! Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 9pm, $5 - $ 10 donation, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
