Avers

Wed, July 29, Doors: 8:30 pm - Show: 9:00 pm - 21+ - $7  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Psychedelic pop. Blistering garage rock. Fuzzed-out shoegaze. Free-formed throwback jams. With their amps cranked high and their voices doused in reverb, Avers brew up their own kind of spacey swirl. It's a sound that keeps one foot in the past and the other in the present, like some kind of 1960s time capsule unearthed by a group of 21st century indie kids.

Violet and the Undercurrents

Thu, July 30, Doors: 8:30 pm - Show: 9:00 pm - 21+ - $5  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
"The sound of this Columbia quartet can shape-shift to become sleek pop-rock or something spry and jazz-kissed, but the center always holds; that is, the songwriting of lead singer Violet Vonder Haar, whose accented melodies and down-to-earth lyrics provide all the amble and anchor that good folk music requires. The Undercurrents are the band Vonder Haar's songs have always deserved, fleshing them out both with rustic tones and crackling colors." (Aarik Danielsen, Columbia Daily Tribune)

Tyler Lyle

Sat, August 1, Doors: 6:00 pm - Show: 6:30 pm - All Ages - $8  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
If The Golden Age & The Silver Girl was about reckoning with one's sadness, Tyler's follow up, The Native Genius of Desert Plants, is about finally transitioning from dark to light. In contrast to the whirlwind period writing and recording his debut, Tyler was able to take his time to really find his voice on the new album, for which he wrote over 90 songs over four years. Now whittled down to 12 songs, the album maintains an element of eclecticism while speaking from a universal voice of hope and self-discovery.

Ringo Deathstarr

Sat, August 1, Doors: 9:30 pm - Show: 10:00 pm - 21+ - $10  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Warm guitars and pulsing drums combine to form an aggressively atmospheric bubble, encompassing the listener in an infectious cohesive which blends the sounds of an era when Sonic Youth and Jesus and Mary Chain walked the Earth with a forward thinking and creatively stubborn indie darling. Joined by Adam Franklin of Swervedriver on the track "Nowhere" and Jeff Schroeder of the Smashing Pumpkins on "Chainsaw Morning," Ringo Deathstarr has created a flawlessly crafted sound on God's Dream.

Aero Flynn

Sun, August 2, Doors: 9:30 pm - Show: 10:00 pm - 21+ - $10  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
The most alluring thing about Aero Flynn is how sharply Scott's cherubic voice contrasts with the propulsive and unsettling nature of his space station confessionals. "Can I feel you?" he sighs over the vaguely tribal rhythms of "Crisp," and it sounds more like a desperate plea than a come-on. There is a deep desire for connection that appears again and again in the lyrics on the album, but all the while distorted vocal effects, searing guitar parts, and assorted blips and beeps interrupt Scott's transmissions and threaten to change his frequency altogether. And yet he continues to float through the darkness with his hand outstretched, always searching, ever hopeful.

theSHIFT

Mon, August 3, Doors: 5:30 pm - Show: 6:00 pm - All Ages - $7  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Individually, the members of theSHIFT are highly sought-after musicians who've recorded and toured the world with music royalty. Together, John Shannon (vocals/guitar), MJ Lambert (drums) and Ben Geis (bass) craft earth-shattering, anthemic rock with vibrant depth and a forceful punch. The powerhouse trio's defiant sound is perfectly captured on its debut 7th Direction, to be released on April 14.theSHIFT's multi-layered riffs and heavy driven groove are in full effect with "Kobra", the first single off of 7th Direction. The song received its world premiere with Loudwire.7th Direction was recorded at Brooklyn's Mission Sound and Manhattan's JRock Studios and co-produced by Jamie Siegal (Taking Back Sunday, Mary J. Blidge, Santana). Referencing the Native American concept of directions, the track title further reflects a deeper meaning behind theSHIFT's approach to music. "theSHIFT is about altering your consciousness through the sheer power of rock n' roll," declares Shannon. "Our lyrics don't question the government, they question the nature of your reality."

Forty Fathoms

Tue, August 4, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:30 pm - All Ages - $10  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
To live in envy is to live a lie. The numerous and seemingly uncontrollable travails that put a young up and coming act in peril do nothing but breed apathy and discouragement. Choosing such a path will only lead to self destruction and loss of identity and passion. Forty Fathoms has decided to face this common pitfall head on. With complete and emotionally diverse lyrics, coupled with influences ranging from european metalcore to the soft emoting of early 2000's story-telling giants, Forty Fathoms personifies controlled chaos.
