CIGARETTE/DESERT LIMINAL/SOVIET GIRLS/CAUSE FOR CONCERN

Desert Liminal: Chicago duo of Sarah Q on vocals and synth with ex-Michigan drummer Rob Logan. Skeletal, cavernous, strange, beautiful.

Cigarette: Washington D.C. based band playing slow motion songs, drifting like smoke against glass. Narcotic agreement, platonic argument.
https://cigarette.bandcamp.com/

Soviet Girls: Detroit trio, no bassist, songs of sadness, redemption and possible revenge? From a distance but getting closer.
https://sovietgirls.bandcamp.com/releases

Cause For Concern:
Shelley (SHELLS) and Fred (Chore) guitar duo, sounds like Neil Young's kid forgot to go to school!
NO INTERNET PRESENCE!

QUINTRON'S WEATHER WARLOCK!!!!!!

Party Store Productions presents:

Weather Warlock
Saturday, May 26th
9pm
$15


Weather Warlock is a band based around an instrument of the same name, created by New Orleans musician/inventor Quintron. The instrument is a large analog synthesizer which is controlled completely by the weather and employs sun, rain, wind, temperature, moon, and lightning to affect an F major drone chord with special sonic events occurring at sunrise and sunset. 

The four members that make up the core band for this tour are: Quintron, Gary Wrong (Wizzard Sleeve, Kajun SS, Jeth Row records, etc), Kunal Prakash (Jeff The Brotherhood), and Aaron Hill (Eyehategod, King Louie, etc).

There will also be a handful of locals from whatever town we happen to be in. To give an example, recent Weather Warlock players have included Steve Shelly (Sonic Youth), Sean Ono Lennon, Nels Cline (Wilco), Paula Henderson (Sun Ra Arkestra), M.C. Schmidt (Matmos), Jason Hodges (Suppression, Bermuda Triangle), Barry London (Oneida), Cooper Moore, Bonnie Jones, Paul Grass (Egg Yolk Jubilee), Travis Blotsky (9th Ward Marching Band), and Luke Stewart (Sun Ra Arkestra).

HISTORY / FUTURE

This project was completed by Quintron in Captiva Florida during a May 2014 Robert Rauschenberg

residency in Captiva Florida. Since these first Rauschenberg experiments, four active Weather Warlocks have been built in the United States - one in New Orleans, one in Miami Florida, one in Acra New York, and a touring instrument. Each one of these instruments is customized to the local climate and the exact location of the sensors. The latest instrument (pictured below) has new features including a keyboard, a blow tube, and white noise surf sounds.

In 2011 Quintron and Miss Pussycat (www.quintronandmisspussycat.com) installed a solo exhibition at the New Orleans Museum Of Art which focused primarily on an earlier related invention called THE DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog drum machine.

Quintron has no formal education in music or art but he did graduate from high school with a solid C average.

Most recently Weather Warlock traveled to the Abu Dhabi to perform and record their latest album, "Headless Falcon" (Rhinestone Records). The album is a collaboration between the core US members and a collection of 7 musicians from the Middle East, including Sherine Thomay, master of the Oud. In 2018 Weather Warlock will be part of an exhibit at the Geffon Museum of contemporary art in Los Angeles, California.

RIVER SPIRIT, BETSY SOUKUP, SAD MANDELA

River Spirit
"River Spirit's sound is something tender, and yet has commanding presence. Minimalist neo-soul odes carried by powerful lead vocals over composites of electronica/R&B, interlaced with swooning atmospheric guitars and these subtly entrancing percussive patterns." -Jeff Milo (Deep Cutz)
https://riverspirit.bandcamp.com/
http://www.facebook.com/riverspiritband

Betsy Soukup
Betsy Soukup's music combines consonance and dissonance, tension and release, vulnerability and strength in an effort to connect deeply with herself, the audience, and the Universe. "Songs of human truth and darkness. Pure, heavy silk." - Ryan Stier (Extravision)
http://www.soundcloud.com/betsysoukup

SAD MANDELA
The Sad Mandela Project seeks to explore a several century old search for freedom and joy. Through sound, image and voice, they hope to further question the suppression of Black consciousness.
