Fri 08/22 105.9 WXDX Presents J Roddy Walston and The Business with special guests Nox Boys [Rescheduled from 7/13 - all 7/13 tix honored] 8:00pm All Ages
All 7/13 tix honored. The third album from J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Essential Tremors borrows its name from a nervous-system disorder thatís long plagued the bandís frontman. ďItís this condition where my hands shake―sometimes not at all, but sometimes pretty bad,Ē says singer/pianist/guitarist Walston. ďIíve referenced it throughout all our records in some way, but it made sense to be more open about it on this album, which is partly about owning and embracing your weirdness instead of letting it hold you captive because you donít even want to talk about it.Ē For J. Roddy Walston & The Business―who formed in 2002 in Walstonís hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee―embracing weirdness means a mumble-out-loud celebration of that great and terrible burden of being human. Forcing the oft-clashing worlds of art and rock-and-roll to make nice, the band (including guitarist/vocalist Billy Gordon, bassist/vocalist Logan Davis, and drummer Steve Colmus) deals in a scrappy yet sublime sound that honors both their Southern roots and punk spirit.

Wed 08/27 Washed Out with special guests Small Black 8:00pm All Ages
The music recorded by Ernest Greene as Washed Out has been nothing if not dreamy, but for his second full-length, heís taken the idea of letting your mind wander to another state a huge leap further. On Paracosm, released Aug. 13 2013 on Sub Pop, the Georgia-based musician explores the albumís namesake phenomenon, where people create detailed imaginary worlds. The concept has been used to describe fantasy lands like Tolkienís Middle Earth and C.S. Lewisí Narnia, and itís at the heart of the 2004 documentary In The Realms Of The Unreal about outsider artist Henry Darger.
