11/8: 3rd Annual Chili Cookoff, Fletcher C. Johnson, Las Rosas @ Vertical House Records (6pm chili cookoff / 8pm show)

Nov8

Sunday November 8th

3rd Annual Chili Cookoff!

Chili Cookoff starts at 6pm and is free to enter! Crock Pot entries need to be at the store no later than 6:30 for judging. Winners will take home gift certificates and other swag! Show attendees get to eat lots of chili and listen to two awesome touring bands!

Fletcher C Johnson (Brooklyn / Burger Records)

Fletcher C. Johnson may have established his roots playing with King Tuff, but his own material truly reflects his rock ‘n roll pedigree. Starting off sounding like “The Ballad of John and Yoko” being covered by the International Submarine Band, “Happy Birthday” establishes itself as a nostalgic amalgamation of 60s stylists playing a house party, as the vocals kick in with “When the dance has barely started / and the cops are at the door…” But where most of today’s groups convey a good time through recklessness, Fletcher sings with measured, joyful observance and a subdued compliance. When the chorus hits, he doesn’t incite – so much as sweeten with a melody resolution like Jan & Dean. Debut album, It Rained Something Wicked was released in 2010 on Burger Records, followed by sophomore effort Salutations, in 2012. Fletcher C. Johnson is based in Brooklyn, New York.

Las Rosas (Brooklyn / Burger Records)

Breezy garage pop hitz from Jose of Harlem (the band) on Burger Records!

9/17: Wreckless Eric @ Vertical House Records (8pm, $7)

Sept17-WrecklessEric-3-web

THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 17 @ Vertical House Records!

WRECKLESS ERIC
http://wrecklesseric.com

Nothing Eric has to say sounds like it was said by someone else first. His songs deal with ramshackle existences, the tenuous nature of life, love and fame, depression, injustice, pain, depravity and death, always delivered with indefatigable optimism.

Eric began his recording life on Stiff Records in 1977 with his enduring hit Whole Wide World when he was little more than an ex-teenage art student. Eventually he sidestepped the mechanics of stardom to become Britain’s biggest underground household name, much loved and much misunderstood.

He lives in bohemian splendour in upstate New York in what he describes as a budget pop star home where he continues to record other-worldly pop records.

He signed to Fire Records in 2014. A new album is scheduled for November.

Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realized he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, squalls of feedback, lilting enchantment, bizarre stories and backchat. Some people can’t take it. Thirty seven years of touring have left him in good shape. He’s coming to town.
