Tobin Sprout (ex-Guided By Voices) - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Tobin Sprout (ex-Guided By Voices)
Tobin Sprout, former guitarist / songwriter of indie-rock icons Guided By Voices, has a new album (his first in 7 years), The Universe And Me (Burger Records), out on January 27. The Universe and Me takes a deliberately primitive approach that focuses on feeling, as opposed to production. The result is a vague bridge between the ballads of psych-era Beatles, and the haunting vulnerability of Daniel Johnston’s Hi, How Are You?.
Sprout penned and sang GBV classics including 14 Cheerleader Coldfront, It’s Like Soul Man, Awful Bliss, Ester’s Day, To Remake The Young Flier and Islands (She Talks In Rainbows). Burger Records will also be reissuing Sprout’s out-of-print 1990s Matador solo albums, Carnival Boy and Moonflower Plastic. In 2017, Sprout will be performing throughout the US with his 4-piece band.
DTCV - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
DTCV is a Los Angeles-based French/American noise pop band. Mojo Magazine describes their sound as "Savages with pop hooks."
Permanent Body - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Permanent Body
Permanent Body is the home recording project of longtime Philadelphia DIY stalwart Barrett Lindgren. As a principle, the project leans into the approachable and familiar, eschewing artistic pretense to explore only what feels immediately honest. The band has featured live and recorded contributions from Robyn Campbell, Kyle Laganella, Kian Sorouri, Jarret Nathan, and Shannen Moser.
