SURFER BLOOD AT THE EARL W/ WINTER AND KARAOKE
Friday, April 20th at 9:00pm
“The band’s finely nuanced and understated treatment of the [late 80s / early 90s] era works on Pythons. Aided by Foo Fighters and Pixies producer Gil Norton, Surfer Blood conjure college rock’s feeling of youthful, nostalgic melancholy without using any of the sub-genre’s gimmicks.” – NME

LIZA ANNE PRESENTS FINE BUT DYING AT THE EARL
Saturday, April 21st at 7:00pm
LIZA ANNE “Growing up, people would always say I was too happy to be depressed, or too social to have anxiety,” says Liza Anne Odachowski, the critically acclaimed songwriter better known these days by her stage name Liza Anne. “In their eyes, because I was one thing, I couldn’t also be something else. I think we all exist in duality, though. I can be everything and nothing all at once.”Duality is at the core of Liza Anne’s arresting new album, ‘Fine But Dying,’ her debut release for indie powerhouse label Arts & Crafts. Synthesizing the elegant sincerity of Angel Olsen with the wry lyricism of Courtney Barnett and the unapologetic candor of Feist, the music is both tough and vulnerable, bold and withdrawn, a helping hand and a middle finger. Firing on all cylinders with distorted alt-rock guitars and explosive drums one minute, hushed and delicate the next, it’s an eclectic collection that reflects the messy complications of growing up in the modern age, as the 23-year-old grapples with the fallout of falling in love, reckons with the patriarchy, and stares down the panic disorder she refuses to let define her.
CHASTITY BELT W/ LALA LALA, CHICK WALLACE & JAY AMERICANA AT 529
Saturday, April 21st at 7:30pm
Chastity Belt‘s I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone is their third and finest full-length to date. Recorded live in July of 2016, with producer Matthew Simms (Wire) at Jackpot! in Portland, Oregon (birthplace of some of their favorite Elliott Smith records), it’s a dark and uncommonly beautiful set of moody post-punk that finds the Seattle outfit’s feelings in full view.
