The God, Sex & Death Variety Hour w/ Danny Black...
... with co-producers Lily Be and Daniel Shapiro, is a comedy based variety show that leans to the dark side. Each month, the subject are covered by storytellers, comics, musicians, and interviews with interesting folks -- maybe an ex-cult member, a hilarious funeral director, or a sex worker. Interspersed with the GSD news and facts with Lily Be, where we explore little known and oddball facts about God, Sex, & Death.
Every 1st Wednesday - 7:30 PM in the Upstairs Lounge - FREE!
London, ON's Single Mothers has made a compelling case for how red flags, stacked odds, and strikeouts can somehow inspire a collective recklessness to keep at it. Known for their dangerously explosive live show and the palpable tension that bleeds into their music, the band has broken up countless times. However, after disbanding in early 2011 the band quietly posted their final EP online. It achieved a cult following and inspired the band to reform the following year. Pairing feral punk with rock 'n roll sensibilities, Single Mothers has accepted that all their trials, tribulations, and tensions have not only gotten them here but have motivated them to work even harder. And, it that's to be believed then a ton of wrongs can lead to a right.
The new Bishop Allen record, Lights Out, is here at last. Here's what went into it: ten years, three full-lengths, twelve EPs, thousands of shows, a move out of Brooklyn, a new home in the wooly wilds of Kingston, NY, time off to score the films Bully and Mutual Friends, as well as an Anderson Cooper 360 special, months of demos, drum tracking in a sweat-lodge attic studio during a July heat wave, a wet Fall arranging guitars, bass, and synths in a now-chilly attic studio, the coldest December on record spent mixing, a close call with a frozen pipe and flooded hard drives, and a photo found on a friend's refrigerator.
Here’s what you do with it: Check the weather. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you’ve still got some summer left—the bittersweet tail end of it. Get yourself invited to some cookouts, or throw one, and if you still have it in you to get a little drunk or otherwise shut off any sense of responsibility, go for that. Play this record at that event. You don’t have to listen too closely—it sounds great & you’re going to have fun with it and feel good. Hey! you’ll say, I wish we had this record at the beginning of the summer!
Couple weeks later, summer’s over. Responsibility is creeping back in. Driving home from the last party of the season, you keep the record rolling in the car, like you’re huffing the last fumes of this night...and now you quiet down & some of the haze in your mind clears...Listen to what this guy’s singing. And realize that this record is not what you thought it was at all. Goddamnit! Bait-and-switch! These songs are downright melancholic!
