James & the Drifters, Secret Science, Josefina – Fri 5/6 at Martyrs

May 06, 2016 at Martyrs’ in Chicago.


Fri, May 6 – 9pm – $8 – 21+
James and the Drifters Secret Science Josefina

JATD have always kept two goals in mind for every performance, to spread positivityand play from the heart. The aphorism has served them well as the band is one of themost talked about and loved groups in Fort Wayne. Their sound is the transfiguration ofmodern pop folk into the likeness of the golden-era of rock. Formed in the small town of Huntington in 2010, James & the Drifters was the collectiveidea of three folk artists pulling resources. Less than a month after sharing material Brent Chamberlin, Kyle Jackson, and Tyler Gault hit the studio and in 8 hours the threemen recorded over 20 songs featuring a wide-range of folk instruments: the banjo, lap-steel, accordion, drums, guitar, and rich three-part harmonies. Over the course of theband’s six-year existence they have recorded 4 albums and an EP. Immediately after forming James & the Drifters began booking shows and playingany place that would host them; playing weddings, art galleries, graduation parties,birthday parties, car shows, and of course the local Ft. Wayne dive bars and restaurants. More recently the band has begun touring regionally, including stops in Chicago,Columbus, Indianapolis, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati and Nashville. Another aspect of theband’s mission to give positivity is performing charity events and putting on concerts forthe incarcerated. Stylistically the band has shaken off their dusty-folk/Americana-boots for the tough thick-skinned sound of rock and blues. Melodic guitar riffs jab and sometimes hang sweetlyabout the air while tight three-part harmonies, pure and strong, move along with the rockdriven rhythm section. Putting a finger on the sound of James & the Drifters typicallyharkens to contemporary bands such as My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses, Dr. Dog orLord Huron, yet flows down a path of its own right. In November of 2015, the band released a new EP “Get the Spirit” recorded with BenTanner at F.A.M.E Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. James and the Drifters continueto tour regionally and gain followers by investing in relationships and creating friends.

“…(Secret Science) is really more of a Frankenstein creation. And I do mean that in a good way. These basement technicians dug up the freshly-buried forms of punk rock, shocked them with a thousand jiggawatts of raw human energy and infused some late ’90s rock sensibilities about how far noise alone can carry an idea. This is post-punk: the don’t-give-a-[flip] recklessness of Skulls (Misfits, 1982) tempered by the compelling pop-logic of My Name is Jonas (Weezer, 1994).” Kevin Whelan, Indie Monday

Urinals w/ Le Tour at The Hideout

May 26, 2016 at Hideout Inn in Chicago.



The Urinals are a weird band to pin down. They claimed L.A. as their home and played regularly with The Germs, Black Flag, and Dead Kennedys, though were too consciously intellectual to fit into that scene; yet they possessed the radical/Marxist chic of the San Fran school, the jagged deconstructionism of the NY No Wave set, and the minimalist garage churn of merry ol’ England’s Wire and The Fall. Add to that the fact that they covered songs by the Soft Machine and the 13th Floor Elevators and you’ve got a strange combination. The band was formed in 1978 by John Talley-Jones, Kevin Barrett and Kjehl Johanson. Wishing to make their own statement on popular culture, they formed as a 5-piece with two other friends to play as a joke at parties, but quickly realized their own abilities to rise above mere piss-take, and released their own self-titled debut 7″ EP on the Happy Squid imprint in early 1979. Long considered the holy grail amongst collectors of US punk obscurities of the era, the four tracks featured might as well have come from Mars than late ’70’s California.


“Le Tour is absolutely crushing the lo-fi, tape distortion aesthetic with their specific brand of brutal psychedelia. Often affiliated with protopunk wizards The Sonics, as well as countless other punk bands from the 1980s underground, these guys bring noisy riffs coupled with well integrated psych and DIY sensibilities to the table.” – The Empty Bottle
