Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts (NYC, Rough Trade Records) play a crazy, original mix of scuzzy urban indie-rock, literate lyrics and comic book punk, like a 21st Century mash-up of Sonic Youth, Pete Seeger and R. Crumb. Jeffrey has done tours in Europe and America and Australia and Asia and elsewhere, a few tours every year since 2001, as well as sometimes playing as the opening act for bands like the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, The Fall, Pulp, Roky Erickson, The Vaselines and other luminaries. Jeffrey has released seven critically acclaimed albums worldwide on Rough Trade Records (licensed through Matador in the USA), in addition to occasional self-releases and projects on other labels (like K Records and Don Giovanni), and Jeffrey continues to self-publish his art and writing in an ongoing underground comic book series called Fuff. With his current Los Bolts bandmates Brent (Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums and Mem (Cat Tatt) Pahl on bass, Jeffrey has recently released a covers album called “Works by Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010)” on Don Giovanni Records, plus a deluxe vinyl reissue of his 2005 Rough Trade album “City & Eastern Songs.” Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts have recorded a brand new full-length album in Nashville with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo), with release date tba!
If Pee Wee Herman and Tim & Eric had twin babies at an NSyNC show,
you'd have Candy Boys.
The sweetest boy band ever!
Though their origins are hazy, it's rumored D'arick and A'rick met at a home for wayward boys
after being caught taking candy from a jar that wasn't their own.
It's during that time the boys met DJ Cleric online.
He sent them beats and together they celebrate the energy and diversity of all candies.
A rock 'n' roll affront for modern times.
'The men don't know, and the little girls don't understand either.' Dust Hat is a New Haven rock 'n' roll party attack featuring Brendan Toller on vox/guitar, Sagittarius Moon Goddess Robin Woerner on vox, herpatologist Jeff Slocum on lead guitar, Dan Soto (of Dan Soto & the High Doses) on thunderstick, and the one and only Rob Ruby on the beat of the traps. Think Peewee Herman's version of the MC5. Drag optional, dancing required.
