Ty Segall - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
Ty Segall
Ty Segall haS hiS finger on iT. A finger on it, digging into your vinyl, since 2008. But to get to the
start, go back a little further, back to 2005 Laguna Beach — a cell phone call from a friend who has
something Ty would love to hear: live, distorted Rock and Roll from inside a Coachwhips practice
space. Transduced through a satellite, no less. Hold up the phone. Yeah, it’s 2005 and Ty’s gonna
move to SF. Get outta high school and move up there. Good thing too cause the Epsilons were
rad but the Traditional Fools were a beer soaked painters cap drying in the sun, son. Until one day
when Ty is the only Fool to show up to the show and it’s one of those moments- local history takes
a turn and the world ain’t gotta wait much more, now. Ty plays the show one man band style and
goes home and plans the rest: the records you got, tunes in your head, the unpretentious display
of rock wealth. The tours, the bands, endless shows, the honorable way. Mikel Cronin, unicorn
towel, Eric Bauer’s recording world, more tours. Memphis magnet and home of beautiful SF — a
cheery City State of Yoga and the push of Thee Oh Sees, fog and rain, two minutes in the Sic Alps,
a snatch of 7"s, split 12"s, marathon recording, six shows in four days (two are free), a sun shower of
Sour Patch Kids, it’s all about the Kids — and Emily Rose, the drummer. So what do you get now?
It’s 2011. Ty is 23. So, do we get the comedown record? Yes and massive.
White Fence - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
White Fence
“I have cyclops vision now. But I’m not a giant. I changed my name and body only, and stabbed my social nous in the right ear. I still read fear but there are no police this year. I can repeat the same dream. I can let birds talk to me. I’m in jail. I have love and a whistle. I lay where the lotus lay and then spring the frozen flowers on any giving day. I apologize to those put in the trees, but I was gathering the Cyclops reap.

In the span of 4 1/2 years. I’ve lived in two different apartments and have used three different rooms during this time. All in Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA, only a couple miles from one another. After the death of my father in 2008 I started writing and recording non-stop in these rooms. I can’t say it was directly because of that trauma, but I think deep down it might have much to do about it. This record was initially going to be a collection of the many songs trapped between the 4 White Fence LP’s. As i was putting that together, there were more coming. a better crop. i couldn’t stop. So, instead of a retrospective i said “Fuck It”. might as well use the most current songs of the bunch. For the exception of “Make Them Dinner At Our Shoes” which is from 2009.”
Mikal Cronin - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Mikal Cronin
Conceived and recorded as a sort of therapy to help cope with adjusting to life post-college, an insuing break-up and geographic isolation Mikal Cronin steps momentarily away from the rhythm section of Orange County surf-punk bashers The Moonhearts with his debut solo LP. Fans can take heart, this isn’t a “vanity project” or half-baked endeavor - Mikal’s solo debut is fully realized, cohesive and beautiful, with themes that are as personal as they are universal; questioning your future, accepting your past and living in the moment.

Taking influences such as late sixties Del Shannon and The Everly Brothers and filtering them through his own mutant California fuzz, Mikal deftly explores his singer/songwriter side that at moments feels like a punk Harry Nilsson or Curt Boettcher that balances sweet melodies & chords with chunky, psychedelic guitar freak-outs. Don’t let the opening Beach Boys-ian harmonies of “Is It Alright?” fool you into thinking this record can be easily pinned down... with long-time friend & collaborator Ty Segall producing, Eric Bauer (Ty Segall, Royal Baths) running the tape machine and guests like John Dwyer of The Oh-Sees, you can be positive you’re in for something special. Once those guitars kick in, and you hit that first transcendent chorus, you’ll be hooked and anxiously awaiting what comes next.
The Feeling Of Love - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Feeling Of Love
Born in a Metz's bunker during the 2006 summer, The Feeling of Love is at first the solo project of G.Marietta (A.H. Kraken's guitarist and singer, In the red records). Ephemeral idea that initially couldn't have gone further than a few short songs, belched and recorded for the tape label Luisance Sonore. The postulate was to play on the garage blues and no-wave's codes in order to find a primitive, repetitive and minimal idea of rock'n'roll. Finally, after 2 years playing gigs in Europe, and a few 7" out (Yakisakana, Floridas Dying, Rococo records, etc.), the "one man band" mutates: from a one-piece to a two-pieces, the Feeling of Love is more generally a three-pieces band, with Seb Normal (the Normals, Crash Normal,etc.) on drums, and s. (A.H.Kraken, Vingt Mille Punks) on keyboards.
"Petite tu es un hit" on Yakisakana and "Ok judge " on Kill Shaman records. On the latter, the blues and his repetitive gimmicks that were the driving force to reach a trance state are being perverted by krautrock and psychedelism. A year after, the band carries on with the "kraut space garage" vein on his third album, on Born Bad records (mars 2011). Songs stretch out, the drums go more tribal, the synth hammers out his keys on an infinite highway, and the guitar gets lost in delay pedal's fog. Lyrics are still that much negative. One thinks Suicide, Spacemen 3, The Velvet Underground, Pussy Galore. But The Feeling of Love also love cats, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jordan, Francis Bebey, Bob Dylan and the highway.
From the begining, the band has played around Europe and in the United States, with such bands as The Intelligence, Ty Segall, Strange Boys, Movie Star Junkies, Black Lips, Magnetix, Cheveu, Girls, King Khan & the Shrines, Movie Star Junkies, etc.
