3pO Mafia, Cloud City DJs, Dread Wings $5 9pm
Thursday, August 02, 2012 at 9pm
In two years Detroit band Dread Wings has assembled an expansive catalog of a-typical rock music that is influenced as much by experimental jazz and noise records as it is by Punk, Garage, Psychedelic and other more traditional rock genres.
Dread Wings has recorded an EP with Chris Coltay at High Bias Studios, a full length record with Scrummage and Tempermill, and they continue to write, perform and record an increasingly eclectic range of songs that anyone with a taste for weirdness and a love for dynamic rock should find right up their alley.
3PO Mafia are three space rogues and a Jedi master. An unlikely combination, but it
has produced some very sincere intergalactic folk/rock and roll. Lots
of good story songs that will tug at your heartstrings and make you want
to sing along as you order that next round of blue milk. You don't
have to be a nerd to enjoy them, but it doesn't hurt. Costumes not
mandatory, but certainly encouraged.
....... Have you ever had the guts to imagine a Rock album dedicated to Star
Wars? 3PO Mafia did. They totally went there. And it's a rockin' good time.
The CLOUD CITY DJs are one of the most popular Star Wars-themed techno acts around. Hailing from Kissimmee/St Cloud, Florida the CLOUD CITY DJs have played Star Wars Conventions across North America. Known for making their music entirely out of samples from the STAR WARS series, the CLOUD CITY DJs delight both fans of the George Lucas films as well as intelligent dance music enthusiasts. But if you think this is going to be a polite nerd session on whether or not Greedo shot first, you'd be wrong because when the CCDJs jam that place turns into a straight up Cantina!
