A show for any music lover, Eric brings the audience to him, playing his unique songs and telling the funny, moving and one-of-a-kind stories that made him the artist he is today.

 

Zero Mile Presents: Welles w/ Rare Creatures at The Earl

Friday, March 15th at 9:00pm

Event Link

Welles is one of the many musical guises of Arkansas-based rocker Jesse Welles, who also operates under the moniker Jeh Sea Wells, and has served as the frontman for the bands Dead Indian and Cosmic American. Pairing the fuzzed-out, melody-forward attack of Kurt Cobain, the heartfelt indie rock swagger of Kyle Craft, and the rock and roll pageantry of the Struts, Welles emerged in 2012 as Jeh Sea Wells via a series of home-recorded singles and LPs released to online streaming sites. Later that year he formed Dead Indian with Dirk Porter and Simon Martin, and began briefly performing under the name Breck Shipley. Dead Indian issued two albums, Lead Me to the Sky and When We Live, before calling it quits in 2015. He reverted back to Jeh Sea Wells shortly after the group’s demise and contributed a cover of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box” to the Pigeons and Planes curated Nirvana cover song compilation Teenage Angst Has Paid Off Well. He then teamed up with Dead Indian drummer Simon Martin, Skyler Greene, and Blake Foster and formed Cosmic American, but the group folded the following year. Rebranding as Welles in 2017, he issued the Codeine EP via C3 Records. In 2018, Welles inked a deal with Atlantic imprint 300 Entertainment and released his debut full-length, Red Trees and White Trashes. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

Event Link

Lucifer is a multinational Heavy Rock band from Stockholm. Founded in 2014 in Berlin by The Oath front woman Johanna Sadonis, the group first consisted of Cathedral, Angel Witch and Ladytron members. The first 7” Single ‘Anubis’ and debut album ‘Lucifer I’, penned by Sadonis and Cathedral’s Garry Jennings and released by British label Rise Above Records, brought Lucifer international recognition. The band completed their line-up with Swede Robin Tidebrink from the band Saturn on second lead guitar. Lucifer has been touring the world including Europe, USA, Canada and Japan. With the critically acclaimed release of their long awaited second album ‘Lucifer II’ on Century Media on July 6th 2018 and the videos for their new singles ‘California Son’ and ‘Dreamer’, Lucifer is facing a new grand chapter. The album immediately jolted into the Swedish, German, British and American charts and received outstanding worldwide attention.

 

BONUS SHOW

The Bowery Presents and Zero Mile present: Tokyo Police Club with Dizzy at The EARL

Monday, March 18th at 7:30pm

Event Link

“Ready to Win” starts as a simple, blues-inspired acoustic song that takes stock of Monks’ many mistakes—real and imagined—and turns them into a call to arms he’s done with the past but he’s learned from it. It was the song that turned heads when he started playing it for people, because it sounds like nothing the band had done before yet perfectly of a piece with its ethos. It’s the channeling of that energy, which flows into every song on TPC, that makes the record their best. TPC is self-titled, almost, because it’s Tokyo Police Club circa 2018—scarred but smarter, fully re-energized.
