When: Sun., Dec. 20, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Get ready for an evening of exuberant, politically-charged punk, freak-folk, and pop! NANA GRIZOL – Orange Twin Records (Athens, GA) – members of Neutral Milk Hotel, Defiance, Ohio, Elf Power, The Music Tapes, & more TOBY FOSTER – of the fantastic High Dive and Defiance, Ohio! Solo set! CURB DOGS – (SAV) – rock & roll! About Nana Grizol: “The crew augments Theo Hilton’s book-open vocals and beautiful fingerpicking with a suitably eclectic array of instrumentation. Laura Carter and Robbie Cucchiaro, both formerly of Athens’ legendary and notoriously horn-buoyed Neutral Milk Hotel, head up a brass-and-winds section comprised of Laura’s celebratory trumpet, Robbie’s Baritone Euphonium, a couple clarinets, harmonica, recorder and whatever else you can pack into a touring-trunk and bring along for a blast. Rhythmic backbone comes courtesy of Southern punkrock siren Madeline Adams’ bass, Matte Cathcart’s drumming and some right-on Fender Rhodes piano provided by Hot New Mexicans’ mainman Patrick Jennings. Theo’s lyrical voice is ruralist, lovelorn and punkrock in the most primal way: he looks to explicate a world gone way wrong on the most basic, inhumane levels. Experiences gained on the touring road and at his home at the Orange Twin Conservation Community have led him to question the empty life of the modern American, and the disquieting ways the inherent Dystopia have made itself manifest on our own interior landscapes.”
