12 Minutes Max
Salt Lake City Public Library – 12 Minutes Max is a year-round monthly performance series featuring short works by local artists in many disciplines. One Sunday a month, we present three original pieces in a varied mix, chosen from music, dance, film, writing, theater, performance art, and the like—each 12 minutes or less. The whole event is short and sweet, taking about an hour. After each month's performances, coffee and cookies are served—a time for conversation and feedback. Local musician Skyler Hitchcox will do a solo performance as Sympathy Pain. He works by combining ambient and drone elements through the use of guitar manipulation and looping. Salt Lake City artist David Baddley will present his video piece "Abalone Point, 129,600° View." He describes his process this way: "To investigate the relationships between physical action, technology, nature, and myself, I swung a camera in a (360°) circle 360 times at Abalone Point on the North Coast of California." Baddley is a professor of art and photography at Westminster College, where he runs the photo program. His work is often performative. Dance artist and educator Allison Shir will present a work-in-progress excerpt of her new piece, "Solo 32." This work is a continuation of her ongoing research on metamorphosis—"states of in-betweens" and processes of transformation. "Solo 32" explores "the complexities and paradoxes of metamorphosis in relation to rites of passage, cycles, and rituals, memory and emotion, and home vs. displacement." This program is modeled after 12 Minutes Max, a performance laboratory originated On the Boards in Seattle.

Flobots, Scenic Byway
Urban Lounge – Alternative hip-hop band Flobots’ highly anticipated fourth album, NOENEMIES, will be released May 5, 2017. NOENEMIES is, without question, Flobots’ most ambitious and sophisticated statement to date - both lyrically and musically. Funded entirely by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $80,000, the music on NOENEMIES is undeniably Flobots music, but it’s also assuredly music made by artists who have matured and expanded their horizons. Influenced by stories shared by Flobots’ friend and longtime mentor and Southern Freedom Movement historian and professor - the late Dr. Vincent Harding, and inspired by the band’s recent grassroots community work hosting workshops, classes and keynote speeches about using collective song to build social movements, NOENEMIES is a body of songs that speak to the urgency of the current moment. Each of the tracks on NOENEMIES serves as a powerful, poignant new anthem, many packed with surprises both subtle and grand. Taken as a whole, the album is enormous in breadth, enveloping and electrically charged, befitting of the finely crafted, carefully chosen words. NOENEMIES virtually begs the listener to delve and to contemplate, to share and revel. For the recording of NOENEMIES, Flobots’ core trio - emcee’s Brer Rabbit (Stephen Brackett) and Jonny 5 (Jamie Laurie) and drummer Kenny Ortiz - enlisted the help of trusted musical friends to bring their vision of the album into reality. Musician/Producer Gabriel Otto worked intimately with the band to craft a distinct sonic landscape, recruiting a string section, horn players, and a gospel quintet to layer recurring motifs over the band’s signature grooves. They teamed up with founding Flobot Mackenzie Gault (viola) and longtime musical collaborator Serafin Sanchez (saxophone, keys) to co-write a number of songs. The band incorporated voices, melodies, and words from throughout their collaborations - both on and off stage - into the songs on NOENEMIES. From the beginning, Flobots’ sound defied categorization. Weaving conscious hip-hop lyrics and classical viola solos over live instrumentation, their anthems captured attention from all directions. When Flobots first catapulted onto the global scene in 2008 with their platinum single ‘Handlebars’ from their first album release Fight With Tools, it was the fastest charting song debut by a new artist in 10 years. Released during the frenzy of that year’s election, the band’s call to envision “another America” resonated with a generation experiencing a sense of profound political and social awakening. In a span of months, Flobots went from playing at local clubs to selling out tours internationally, performing on late-night television, signing a major label record deal, and receiving constant rotation on alternative radio. Now, a decade later and with three critically acclaimed albums under their belt, Flobots are still dedicated to creating and performing anthems for a better world. And in 2017, amidst a nation taking to the streets, for Flobots that means delivering a unique brand of protest songs. Enter NOENEMIES - bringing the songs back to the people. Tickets: $15

Chad VanGaalen, Head Portals
Kilby Court – Nobody cared about their old heads, because the new ones work just fine now, don't they?.... they have the same size mouth and eyes. The song "Old Heads" is a sci-fi space anthem to technology that constantly replaces itself, proving both necessary and unnecessary at the same time. It's also a jangly pop gem, a trip through the fantastical that is ultimately warm and relatable. This remarkable coexistence is one of many achievements of Chad VanGaalen's Light Information, his sixth record on Sub Pop, due September 8th. For an album that's about "not feeling comfortable with really anything," as Van Gaalen says, Light Information is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories. The rich soundscapes and sometimes jarring imagery ("I'll be the host body, yes, for the parasitic demons. They can eat me from the inside out, I already hear them chewing.") could only come from the mind of a creative polymath--an accomplished visual artist, animator, director, and producer, VanGaalen has scored television shows, designed puppet characters for Adult Swim, directed videos for Shabazz Palaces, Strand of Oaks, METZ, Dan Deacon, and The Head and the Heart, and produced records for Women, Alvvays, and others. While alienation has always been a theme of VanGaalen's music, Light Information draws on a new kind of wisdom--and anxiety--gained as he watches his kids growing up. "Being a parent has given me a sort of alternate perspective, worrying about exposure to a new type of consciousness that's happening through the internet," he says. "I didn't have that growing up, and I'm maybe trying to preserve a little bit of that selfishly for my kids." As always, VanGaalen wrote, played, and produced all of the music on Light Information (save Ryan Bourne's bass part on "Mystery Elementals" and vocals on "Static Shape" from his young daughters Ezzy and Pip), and designed the cover art. The product of six years' work, going back even before 2014's Shrink Dust, Light Information emerged from the experimental instruments that fill the VanGaalen's Calgary garage studio. Among them is a beloved Korg 770 monosynth, which VanGaalen coveted for years before fixing one up and devoting a lot of recent energy to recording "duets" with it. One of these, "Prep Piano and 770," is the lone instrumental on Light Information, more atmosphere and chord bursts than the rest of the album's hooky rock narrative. "If I was going to go out and buy a record, I would probably want it to sound only like that," says VanGaalen. "That one's for me." Throughout the dark-wave reverb of Light Information are stories of paranoia, disembodiment, and isolation--but there's also playfulness, empathy, and intimacy. "I sit and do a drawing, a portrait of my dad," sings VanGaalen on "Broken Bell." "I should really visit him before he is dead. Cuz we are getting old. Our cells just won't divide like they told us. But I'm not really good at this kind of thing." But VanGaalen is good at a lot of things--and he's trying to pursue them for the right reasons. "I'm just trying to get over the weight of feeling like I have to be making something of my time constantly," he says. "Especially with kids, you get these small breaks where you get to make stuff, and now I try to say 'you know what, I'm going to make something for me.'" And if he could make anything for himself, it would be without constraint. "I would love to build a living structure from scratch," he says. "I've slowly been ripping my studio apart and building additions, but you're always kind of down to this box. I'd love to explore more open forms of architecture, with an endless supply of materials to use, even garbage. Building codes keep us in these boxes--You can't just build a giant hand made out of wood that's the size of a house to live in. But we really should be able to do that." --Evie Nagy Tickets: $15

Wavves, Joyce Manor, Culture Abuse at In the Venue
Kilby Court – All Ages Tickets: $22 ADV / $25 DOS JOYCE MANOR Acclaimed Californian band Joyce Manor - Barry Johnson (vocals and guitar), Chase Knobbe (guitar), Jeff Enzor (drums), and Matt Ebert (bass) - have announced the release of their anticipated new album entitled Cody which arrives in stores this October 7th, care of Epitaph. It is the follow-up to the band’s 2014’s critically-lauded record Never Hungover Again. While the band’s Epitaph debut Never Hungover Again was recorded in a mere ten days, Cody is the result of two months in the studio with renowned producer Rob Schnapf, credited on classics by Elliot Smith, Guided By Voices, Saves The Day and Rancid among others. As the band’s guitarist and singer Barry Johnson explains, “It was the first time we really used the studio to our advantage. I felt like I could get a better grasp on what we could do. We always recorded like a punk band—go in and lay ‘em down! Just get good takes! And this time we tried a lot more.” The result is a record that dares to be humble, intimate and unapologetically human. Cody is the album where the band moves past simple pop and punk. It’s a moment for clarity and creative renewal. Without losing any of the emotional power fans love, the band is defiantly looking towards the future. WAVVES The word ‘brat’ has followed Nathan Williams around for almost a decade, but at the age of 30, with a fully-fledged business to his name, as well as the ongoing success of band Wavves, his rebellious streak has proven not just purposeful but pretty damn inspiring. The San Diego native knows how to play the system, so when the major labels came knocking a few years ago looking to turn Wavves into the next so-called saviours of radio rock’n'roll, Williams and bassist Stephen Pope made sure they used it to their advantage. “We were just trying to go to eat at nice places in LA,” he laughs. “There were a few people from majors who would not stop reaching out to us. They were obsessed. They thought we had heat and they needed an edgy big rock band like they used to have in the ‘90s. Me and Stephen were in our shitty apartments, Googling ‘nicest restaurants in LA’. We went to eight or nine dinners. At the end we’d say, ‘not interested’.” When Warners came along and offered them a cash advance too good to refuse, they accepted while being shrewdly aware of what they were getting themselves into. “We still owned all of our shit, which was the most important part for us. For them it was a shot in the dark.” The day to day of being signed to a major, however, was unpredictable and beyond their wildest nightmares. “I figured it would run the same as [prior label] Fat Possum, just with more people. I was wrong.” By the time they were readying to release their second Warners album – 2015’s ‘V’ – shots were fired. Williams released single ‘Way Too Much’ on Soundcloud before the label had approved it, the label forgot to sign off on the artwork and, in the end, Wavves felt swept under the rug. Ultimately it felt like a career step backwards. “I’d never come in contact with such a poorly run company in my life,” says Williams. “It was anarchy. Nobody knew what they were doing. Turnover rate was like an American Apparel. It was really all cons – unless you’re a cash cow. For everyone else, major labels can’t help you. Maybe at one time they could, but that time is dead.” The birds-eye view on Warners’ inner mess wound up pushing Williams to legitimize his own business – Ghostramp. “I figured if these idiots could get by, we could do it a hundred times better.” With that fighting spirit, Williams took back control and realized his own teenage dreams. Today, during a Monday lunchtime hour, he’s making time between meetings to talk about forthcoming sixth Wavves record ‘You’re Welcome’ in the stock room at Ghostramp’s Chinatown-based LA skate shop. Opening in October 2016, Ghostramp is the physical embodiment of a vision that harks back to before Williams made the first Wavves’ albums in his parents’ garage. It’s a merchandise store, it’s a label, it’s a tangible community in a time when the digital age has taken the confidence out of physical product. And – what’s more – it’s working. ‘You’re Welcome’ is the soundtrack to this new lease of freedom. It’s Williams’ tongue-in-cheek rebirth as a self-released, self-actualized, self-promoting punk kingpin, and despite putting his money where his uncensored mouth is, he’s emerged not just unscathed but with the upper hand. “I’m my own boss and that feels great,” he smiles. In February 2016, months before Ghostramp opened, Williams took himself into producer Dennis Herring’s [‘King Of The Beach’] studio in Downtown LA, and for the first time since the early records worked regular office hours and almost entirely alone. It was the polar opposite experience to making 2013’s ‘Afraid Of Heights’ record, which took Wavves over a year and was “out of control”. “We were so fucked up in the studio – everybody, the producer, the engineer, everyone recording. We’d waste days,” recalls Williams. With this, Williams brought everyone in one at a time, ensuring it was the minimum amount of people possible. That prevented the recording from descending intomidnight oil-burning party sessions. The album was put together wholly differently from ‘V’, too, which was recorded live as a band album together with guitarist Alex Gates, drummer Brian Hill and Stephen in the studio. ‘You’re Welcome’ is mostly comprised of Williams’ oddball, sample-led brainstorms. He came up with 40 tracks, now whittled down to twelve, fat-free punk zingers. “I’d come up with an idea, fool around with it, have Brian come in and play drums, then figure it out.” A sample nerd, Williams delved into his obsession with 1950s doo-wop and – surprisingly – international folk, including Cambodian pop and ‘70’s psychedelia from South America. The results make for one of the most diverse and intricate Wavves records yet. ‘Come To The Valley’ contains a Phil Spector meets Beach Boys ‘60s High School dance vibe, whereas title track ‘You’re Welcome’ riffs on sound effects that could almost originate from Bizarro World, never mind Cambodia. Some of his ideas ran away with themselves a little too much, as Williams reveals one track was a little too close to Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ for comfort. ‘Million Enemies’ is right in his comfort zone though. Inspired by New York Dolls, Bowie and Gary Glitter, he calls it “the anthem song.” “It’s a song for the haters,” he says. The lyrics “I got enemies, a million enemies, living in the streetstonight” are a call-to-arms for anyone whose detractors are out to get them. “I don’t have a million enemies,” jokes Williams. “But probably 500,000.” The biggest shift of all, and the ultimate laying down of the gauntlet to Williams’ doubters, is the subject matter. Where ‘V’ was a “buzzkill” record, all hangovers, lovers’ tiffs and depression, ‘You’re Welcome’ is less navel-gazing. It’s dealing with matters outside of Williams’ own headspace. “I’m tired of writing about myself,” says Williams. “It got boring. On this record I tell more stories, talk about parts of my life from other people’s perspective.” ‘Stupid In Love’ for instance is about a female junkie who lived near him back in San Diego. ‘Animal’ is his anti-corporate, anti-establishment track. “The whole world covered in gasoline and burning alive/I feel taken advantage of and empty inside” go the lyrics. On their last tour, Wavves banned members of the audience, including homophobes, anti-abortionists, racists, and Trump supporters. Ghostramp’s website is currently donating to the likes of ACLU, Planned Parenthood and National Immigration Law Center. On ‘You’re Welcome’ too, it seems Williams has decided to get political, particularly on the song ‘Exercise’, with its lyrics “dancing while the world is burning down… I can’t believe the shit they feed to us/They’re lying to our face.” “I never thought I’d write a song like that,” says Williams. “I don’t know if it’s because I’m older or because shit got so fucked up and crazy but at this point now you shouldn’t be worried to say something. I wanna make it very clear what side I’m on. If you’re quiet about it because you don’t wanna upset some of your fanbase, then that’s part of your fanbase you need to weed out.” There’s also – finally – a love song, called ‘I Love You’ that lays Williams’ emotions bare unashamedly for the first time. Perhaps too, a sign of maturity. “It’s just a love song,” he says. “I’d always skirt around feelings and find different ways of saying things unless I was literally saying, ‘I’m depressed.’” Offering a tour around Ghostramp’s store, Williams explains that they’re already looking to expand and move into a bigger space next door this year. Back in 2013, he put out Wavves’ ‘Life Sux’ EP by himself. It was too much of a headache and he realized he needed to build a team of capable friends. Now that team runs this daily operation, proving that DIY and business savvy can be bedfellows. It’s still hilarious to Williams that even in the early days, people would chastise him for “selling out”. “Did people think that when I’m 45 I’d still be recording records in my mom’s basement? Being an entrepreneur, having a hold over your own business, being able to employ your friends and create not just a place for fans but for other people to share their ideas too is so cool.” Via Ghostramp, Williams isn’t just putting out Wavves’ new record, he’s signing other local garage bands, funding his tours, schooling DIY artists in how to create and distribute merchandise in a way that supports your career and provides future security where nobody else can. As for Warners, that cash advance helped pay for this store. The rest came from the money Wavves made off merch during 2016’s Summer Is Forever II Tour with Best Coast and Cherry Glazerr. “I thought Ghostramp would be a hobby, doing 7-inches here and there. But now it’s a legitimate business,” says Williams. “The thing is I’m not just interested in making music for Wavves. I’m too ADD. Being an entrepreneur, being hands-on isn’t just smart, it’s necessary. Your art is everything you do, every choice you make. I was able to build my own thing, own it and control it all 100%. If I want to do something now I don’t ask anyone. I just fucking do it – that’s priceless.” Nathan Williams never went away, but now he’s made sure he’s here to stay far longer. And for that, girls and boys, you’re welcome.

Citizen, Sorority Noise, Great Grandpa at The Complex
Kilby Court – Life is short, sometimes hard, and hopefully, meaningful. This is a reality that doesn't become obvious until you're reaching a certain point, but in doing so, we as human we are, and what we want from our we are, and what we want from our time on this Earth in the process. On their new album Everybody Is Going to Heaven, Citizen stand on the edge of that overwhelming realization, and shout all of those big, tough existential questions into the clouds without the anticipation to figuring out the definitive answers just yet. 2013's debut album Youth introduced the music world to a group of mid-western indie-punks just getting their feet. After seeing their album chart in the Billboard 200 upon its release, sell more than 20,000 copies to date, and embark on massive tours with sold out headlining shows, the band Citizen is becoming is now more obvious than ever in the way they convey themselves sonically and artistically as individuals with purpose Recorded with Will Yip at Studio 4, Citizen's second full-length effort presents the most fully realized version of the band to date in spite of it being their most dissonant and chaotic material they have ever written. The marriage of destruction and beauty looms throughout the album from its start to conclusion, with its sequencing mirroring a journey from the cradle to the grave that concludes with the juxtaposition between death and light on" Yellow Love" and "Ring of Chain." As songwriters, Citizen have adapted highly personal introspection as a means to confront fear, loss and honest revelations into their words. Lead singer Mat Kerekes splits open his head onto the canvas with both distress and violent bliss over heady topics such as a conflicted relationship with a mother on "Dive Into My Sun," to self-criticism of a control complex on "My Favorite Color". Perhaps the most permeating specter throughout the album is the loss of loved ones experienced throughout its members' lives over the past year, as evidenced on "Heaviside" and "Weave Me (Into Yr Sin)". Collectively, members Nick Hamm, Jake Duhaime, Ryland Oehlers and Eric Hamm's contributions to this chaotic life cycle are celebrated through an abrasive atmospheric core that can at times feel unforgiving, while nurturing in others. Everybody Is Going to Heaven begins with a blank slate, explores its fair share of life's ugly moments and tragedies along the way, but ultimately, leaves this world on its own volition and peace of mind. You could say this represents where Citizen are now: A band who passionately sets out to create their own art, and makes itself clear they have no intention of retracing past steps or mistakes set into the ground by their others, or even themselves. It is their journey alone, and all part of their own distinct unique path that life has waiting for them. All Ages Tickets: $17 ADV / $20 DOS

Free Throw, Head North
Kilby Court – Tickets: $12 ADV / $15 DOS Free Throw is: Cory Castro, Jake Hughes, Justin Castro, Kevin Garcia, Lawrence Warner III Two years before Free Throw formed in Nashville, the Memphis Grizzlies made national headlines for their “grit and grind.” Some not familiar with basketball may assume this was another phrase describing the team’s tireless work ethic. Journalists and analysts claimed this “grit and grind” was their disruptive defense. A free throw is usually given to a player disrupted by defense -- so while unintentionally borrowing the ethos of their home state’s NBA franchise, Free Throw went on the offensive. Consider the band’s signature play: a three-guitar attack which stacks raw immediacy with large-scale aspirations. Sometimes this arrangement is abrasive; other times it’s more nuanced. What connects these two different threads is Cory Castro’s frayed vocals, gaining their power from a violent shout and their confessions from a measured whimper. Combine that range with a set of lyrical themes that play out like an uneasy three-way phone call and what remains fills speakers with a darkness offset by instrumentals which sway and bend with warm nostalgia. But what fills most of Free Throw’s golden playbook is a commitment to winning their own way. After strings of DIY touring circuits and an intense love affair with their van, it’s clear to see their blooming, road-tested legacy answers to no one but their enthusiastic audiences. With their live sets packing rooms across the country, not without alcohol and crowd sing-alongs in tow, it seems this grind has paid off so far, with the grit packing their songs with not just unrelenting talent, but the forward-thinking energy to match.

Bruce Bell | Tune In Tomorrow: An Adventure in Retro-Radio
The King's English Bookshop – Join author Bruce Bell for a reading and signing of his new novel, Tune in Tomorrow: An Adventure in Retro-Radio. Tune in Tomorrow is the story of a young under achiever, happy with a routine job in a small Oregon town radio station. His patterned life changes abruptly when a very rich man decides he wants to own a radio station that mirrors his favorite station from another era. The young man is suddenly immersed in a world with wildly creative people and an energetic news team that builds an environment of activity he has never known, much less experience. His adrenaline allows him to keep up with most needs but his lack of know-how produces a string of anxieties that is only relieved by a witty wife and the support from his new best friends at the radio station. The successes and failures of this group of people are fun, funny and frantic. Their head-on collision with life is based on a desire to help make their community a better place. How they, together manage this neat trick is reason enough to Tune in Tomorrow.
