King Khan & The Shrines - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
King Khan & The Shrines
It has been a lengthy hiatus, but we have finally finished our
latest "masterpiece" and named it after an incredible
indigenous-rights movement that is happening right now called Idle No
More.

I was born and raised in Montreal and spent a lot of time on the
Kahnawake Mohawk Indian reservation. Much of my juvenile delinquent
training came from years of tripping out there with my best friends.

I began the Shrines in 1999 with the blessings from my brothers in The
Spaceshits, right after we disbanded. The dream was to make something
reminiscent of Sun Ra, James Brown, and Otis Redding with a hint of
The Velvet Underground, Love, The Monks and about a million other
influences that riddled my LSD-soaked brain at the tender age of 22.

The Shrines was my pirate ship and we sailed many a turbulent sea,
spreading our music "like peanut butter" all over the world. We
celebrated our cult "underground" status and became the kings we are
through word of mouth and by making an "aural eyegasm" that has often
been called the "wildest show on earth."

Idle No More is probably the most refined piece of music we have made
to date. The songs are about the state of the world we live in today.

"Born to Die" is an apocalyptic ode to the heinous war machine that to
this day ruins our lives.

"Bite My Tongue" is about the unsung heroes who are forced to live in
utter poverty but who have made all the revolutions possible and are
being silenced as you read this. Look up "The Invaders" from Memphis
and you will see what I am talking about.

"Thorn in Her Pride" is a girl-power anthem and a celebration of the
goddesses who help raise the children of the revolution.

"Luckiest Man" is about me and how lucky I was to receive the proper
mental care I needed during a very steep and lengthy plummet into
madness.

"Better Luck Next Time" is velvety pop to soothe the ears.

"Darkness" is about the ugly beasts that must be tamed inside of us
all. It was also my attempt to do something as real as Nina Simone.

"Pray for Lil" is an ode to my wife, who continually saves my life and
makes me a complete human being, human doing, and human going.

"Bad Boy" is a requiem for Bobby Ubangi, who was and still is Atlanta's Finest.

"So Wild" is a double requiem for two other Jays I have lost over the
last few years, Jay Reatard and Jay "Berserker" Montour. RIP.

"Yes I Can't" is a little ironic number named after Obama's attempt at
changing the police state.

"I Got Made" is a Joe Pesci trip heavily inspired by the Cosa Nostra.

And last, but not least, is "Of Madness I Dream," a mirror image of
what is happening to the world as we speak.

Originally, I was going to call the album Of Madness I Dream, but then
I became very enthused about the amazing work of the Idle No More
movement. Everyone I asked had never heard of it, so I contacted the
leaders of the movement and, with their permission, decided to rename
the album Idle No More in hopes that it would increase the world's
awareness of this miracle that is taking place for the indigenous
peoples of the world. If you are not familiar with Idle No More, look
it up and GET INVOLVED!

It took a long time to make, but we are very proud and pleased to
bring you this album. I hope that the future will brighten up every
time it is played. Ultimately, John and Yoko were absolutely right:
LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED!

Peace and Love,

King Bama Lama Khan Emperor of RnB
Red Mass - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Red Mass
Welcome to all,

Red Mass is a gathering of artists, writers and musicians from around the globe. The Mass was created by Roy ‘Choyce’ Vucino in 2008. Its goal is simple… a positive atmosphere for networking and allowing its members to create and distribute their work properly, as well as pursuing the ideals of free thinking and liberation through art. This “Rock ‘n’ Roll” organisation touches on a wide array of mediums from animation, illustration, improvisation, art films to music.Within two years of its creation, The Mass’s live performances are turning heads around the world.

For the last few years, Vucino has, as one of its central figures, helped to give Montreal’s flourishing garage and rock’n'roll scene international recognition. Having fronted CPC Gangbangs, he now records film music and tours with Night Seeker . At eighteen, he formed a record label and then went on to play and record with The Irritations, Daylight Lovers, Del-Gators, Cheating Hearts, Luxury Rides, Les Enfants Sauvages, Honey and Lies, Milky Ways, Cocobeurre, Bestalita, Night Seeker, Mark Sultan, PyPy, and Les Sexareenos, with whom he released three records on Sympathy For The Record Industry and achieved cult status after touring extensively in Europe, the USA, Canada and Japan. He then formed CPC Gangbangs, whose live act won them the reputation of one of the top rock’n'roll bands in the world. Bound to implode, the band did so, following the departure of key members.

And now, the Mass has opened itself to all, with a sincere belief that it can offer young artists and outsiders alike a new haven. With a slew of singles, 10″s, EPs, records and experimental releases, Red Mass is ready to hit. Its psychedelic space rock’n'roll with elements of noise, folk, punk and electronic music is a culmination of 12 years of hard work. Dark poppy hooks laced with strange sound effects, it is an ode to the past, music for today and the shape of rock’n'roll to come. Its rotating line-up allows the Mass to tour extensively and consists of musicians from such bands as Fly Pan Am, Black Feelings, Demon’s Claws and Ghost Limbs, to name a few. Having blown crowds away at SXSW, CMJ, Gonerfest, Sled Island, Pop Montreal & North by Northeast Festivals to name a few Choyce & Red Mass can now offer young artists a place and atmosphere where they can learn how to produce and also promote their own art. Red Mass welcomes anyone and everyone interested in working among its ranks.

As above, so below.

We now welcome you to the Red Mass.
Fever The Ghost - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Fever The Ghost
In their very brief existence, Fever The Ghost have already made quite an impression with their uncanny, spectacular live performances, quickly becoming the one band on the tip of everyone’s tongues within LA’s Silverlake/Echo Park scene. While Fever The Ghost’s grandiose rush on the senses dependably transports audiences into their strange universe, what’s even more remarkable is how fully-formed their sophisticated sound arrives, cleverly weaving addictive hooks into their forward-thinking psych-pop pastiche. Fever The Ghost’s songs have that rare quality where you can go home humming them after hearing the band live just once with melodies that linger in the mind.

On their adventurous debut EP Crab In Honey, Fever The Ghost not only delivers on that promise but also ups the ante on this expertly-crafted collection of interstellar pop with surprises lurking around every corner. Clocking in just under 20 minutes, Crab in Honey manages to pack in the ideas covering a wide range of sonic terrain, while never drifting too far from their melodic center. Easy to get into with inviting hooks, Crab In Honey grows more complex and deep with each successive listen.

A tight shuffling groove patiently pushes along the rocking skyward opener “Calico” as singer/guitarist Casper delivers his vocal with a catchy, yet understated cool. Riding a tasteful disco strut, “Source” makes the most of the linear structure with bouncy verses, deceivingly complex synth-work, and a very sticky chorus. The EP’s second half haunts on the darker yet dreamy title track “Crab In Honey” and the ethereal EP closer “We’ll Never Know The Place” introduces a change of instrumentation and breathtaking vocal arrangements to keep us guessing, leaving us eager to hear what comes next.

Mastered by Bob Ludwig (David Bowie, Nirvana, Radiohead), Crab In Honey EP will be out January 21st on Complicated Game.
