OBN III’s third LP – the appropriately titled “Third Time to Harm” – follows the bands’ justly lauded LPs, “The One and Only” (2011), and self-titled follow-up (2012). This latest and greatest slab of guitar-driven magma from Austin’s great sons captures best the brute energy of their unique calling card; their live show (an experience that oscillates between epic and epileptic) by coupling it with heavy recordings. Third Time to Harm nets that exact rare bird that eludes so many; a truly charismatic front man fronting a real rock band that’s not faking a single thing and has talent. And situated amongst a modern class of garage rock superheroes cropping up everywhere, what’s so refreshing is that the OBN III’s’ unforced style and swagger not only shines through, but naturally punches through, song by song, show by show, laying the tracks for its own freight train.

Third Time to Harm is a straight up rager full of ripping Marshalls taking hard turns into dark places (both personal and universal). A definitive party record in sound, but a complete record in scope with its detailed riffing and bright solos burning over mountainous beats in the wildfire of Neeley’s antics. They’ve rightly been compared to Sonics Rendezvous Band…and that won’t stop here. There’s also plenty of Iggy-like heart in this, but in the interest of interest Orville struts out from beneath the shadowy impositions of any “Stooges role” expected of him, instead gnashing his teeth against newly cut rhythms, adding dimension to the band. With all the vigor of the former, and all the direction of his own.

With shows and albums that speak for themselves; leaving heart, blood and beer on the floor every night, this self-produced record captures best their honest appeal with a big recording. And it’s all wrapped up in a bow of middle fingers. OBN III’s have been steadily carving their name into the upper echelons of the underbelly…and with intense touring, 2014 may be the year the band is poised to really (and at long last deservedly) blow. Either way, the beat chugs on…

“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.”

Eraserhood Tonight › Jenny Drumgoole & The Trash Collector’s Ball

Eraserhood › Jenny Drumgoole & The Trash Collector’s Ball

Saturday, October 18 at 8:00pm

AUX presents the work of Jenny Drumgoole, a video artist and accidental activist who has gotten involved with labor and morale issues with Philadelphia sanitation workers. The “Trash Collectors Ball” is part of an on-going series of radical and celebratory events bringing attention to various struggles of urban sanitation workers. Drumgoole was shooting a video on the streets of Philadelphia and asked her local trash collectors to help her with one of the scenes. The workers obliged, and were so gracious that Drumgoole decided to thank them with a surprise party with refreshments, snacks, and party favors. The event “Happy Trash Day!” was a success, and became a recurring phenomenon over the course of several months. Hovering between birthday party, hardcore fan club culture, and social practice performance like Mierle Ukeles’s “Touch Sanitation”, each party grew more wild and memorable than the last. As Drumgoole got to know the workers, she found out that Philadelphia’s sanitation union hasn’t gotten a raise or a new contract in more than five years.
You may also know Drumgoole from her foray into Paula Deen’s “Real Women of Philadelphia Cream Cheese Contest.”

Philadelphia artist Jenny Drumgoole inserts herself into marginal spaces for pseudo-celebrity within popular culture—most recently, by entering absurdly humorous videos of herself in a “Real Women of Philadelphia” online video recipe contest sponsored by Kraft. Her most recent video-based performance work involves the artist physically and virtually infiltrating competitive events with subversive art actions which question our obsessions with celebrity, desire, and the limits and illusions of individuality in popular culture. Drumgoole received her MFA in photography from the Yale School of Art in 2006.

Minus the Bear

For the past seven years, Seattle’s Minus the Bear have orbited the music world like a distant meteor, fine-tuning their unique brand of indie rock and discovering how technology can help enhance the band’s unique pop vision – all of which culminated with the full-length Planet of Ice , an album showing the band not so much transforming their sound as transcending it. In September, 2008, the band added the latest entry in their saga. Their EP Acoustics sees them taking a step back from electronics and electricity as they reworked fan favorites from past albums into compelling acoustic compositions. The EP, which will be available nationally at digital outlets such as emusic and iTunes (and in physical form exclusively on the road) includes a previously unreleased track as well in “Guns & Ammo”.

Formed in Seattle, Washington in 2001, Minus the Bear was initially composed of guitarist David Knudson, bassist Cory Murchy, and drummer Erin Tate who eventually recruited keyboardist/sequencer, Matt Bayles and vocalist/guitarist Jake Snider. Once in the same room they realized they were on to something special – and the band quickly earned a rabid and rapidly growing fan base ranging from teenagers to middle-aged parents. “I know every band says they can’t explain their music, but I really can’t say that we sound like one specific thing,” Murchy explains. “We don’t follow a particular scene or genre and hopefully that shows.”

Acoustics revisits their prolific career with interpretations of songs plucked from their past exploits, including Planet of Ice – which saw the introduction of keyboardist Alex Rose. It was in secret that the band entered the new Redroom studio in Seattle to bang on some acoustic guitars, tambourines, swizzle stix, snare drums, organ pipes, and vocal chords. The final product should please the old guard and new fans alike.

With Planet of Ice, the band allowed negative space and an airy openness to permeate their music; from the distinctively danceable opener “Burying Luck” to the syncopated sample-driven “Knights” to the album’s epic 9 minute closer “Lotus,” which evokes acts like Yes and Pink Floyd, minus the self-indulgent tendencies. Although all the musicians in Minus the Bear are technically talented – as anyone who’s seen Knudson’s unique approach to the guitar which features two-handed tapping and live looping already knows – Planet of Ice showed the band focusing on songwriting instead of showiness. With Acoustics they had an opportunity to fully demonstrate their restraint as they stripped down songs to their core appeal, and revealed the attractive fundamentals that form the bedrock behind the original recordings.

In true Minus the Bear fashion, the band are taking their acoustic interpretations on the road, where they’ll perform songs from Acoustics as well as exclusively sell physical copies of the EP, otherwise available digitally at major online digital outlets. Upon wrapping up their tour prior to the holiday season, the band will take a short break before heading into the studio to begin recording their next full-length.
