EXMORTUS

Thu, April 17, Doors: 5:30 pm - Show: 6:00 pm - All Ages - $7  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
EXMORTUS are an entity amongst themselves and their music, both complex and thoroughly hook-laden, refuses to lend itself to easy categorization. From the technical death-thrash riffage and surgically precise drumming to their neo-classical, twin virtuoso lead guitar attack, fans of death metal, thrash, prog metal, traditional heavy metal and all true metal sub-genres alike enjoy having their craniums crushed by the fury of EXMORTUS.

Marc Rizzo Band

Fri, April 18, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:00 pm - All Ages - $13
Metro Concerts Live presents...
At 27, Marc Rizzo was already a household name among metal fans before finishing "Colossal Myopia", his first solo record. A shredder's shredder, Marc was a founding member of the immensely successful metal act "Ill Nino" with whom he recorded and toured. After leaving Ill Nino, he joined Soulfly in 2003 and played guitar on their fourth record "Prophecy" and every release since then. Rizzo also recorded and toured with Cavalera Conspiracy (a reunion of Sepultura's Max & Igor Cavalera) and launched his own Death Metal project, INPSYCHOBLEEDIA. Marc Rizzo is one of the new breed of young guitarists in contemporary bands who has stepped out recently with solo projects that reveal a phenomenal command of the guitar. His latest solo record, "LEGIONNAIRE" reveals Rizzo to be a master musician with deep musical roots in metal, classical and flamenco guitar and is a much needed breath of fresh air to the instrumental rock genre.

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires

Fri, April 18, Doors: 9:30 pm - Show: 10:00 pm - 21+ - $8  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, Lee Bains III makes music for the foundry worker that writes fiction in his spare time and the college english professor that changes her own oil. The Glory Fires are too loud for Texas and no strangers to Norway; well-mannered Southern punks you would feel comfortable giving the keys to your empty house. It's no surprise that renowned rock'n'roll outsider Tim Kerr has taken them under his wing. Together they've forged a sound that blends the swampiest of Southern grooves with a rust-belt snarl that will leave fans of the Bob Seger System in a cold sweat. The Glory Fires have taken their caterwauling live show around the clubs, basements and theatres of the United States and Europe, raging around Lee's literary, personal, politically charged lyrics - bringing to mind Ronnie Van Zant under the tutelage of Noam Chomsky, or Lee Ving on a Cornel West kick. Their debut LP There Is a Bomb in Gilead was released in 2012 on Alive Natural-Sound Records, and their Sub Pop debut will appear in 2014.

MemCave

Sat, April 19, Doors: 8:30 pm - Show: 9:00 pm - 21+ - $5  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
In just under two years' time (soon to be) Kansas City based producer and DJ Keith Rich, otherwise known as MemCave, has taken his lifelong passion for electronic music and focused it into an ethereal ray of optimistic grooves and blistering beats. Perhaps recognized best for his ongoing stint as drummer for Des Moines mainstay Druids, it should come as no surprise that over the course of three releases MemCave has settled into a world of haunting imagery, cone-thumping dance passages and wildly esoteric samples. With a clear penchant for the cinematic, MemCave references a nightmarish jungle setting as the backdrop for his latest offering; and while it's certainly an apt vivification, the record is so much more. Replete with undulating basslines and swathed in off-kilter piano, MemCave's latest effort, 'Color Fire', was meticulously crafted during witching hours and is a moody collection that plays like a synth-washed Vangelis record taking a midnight stroll with the sort of driving percussion that would make Larry Heard blush. In celebration of the release, a 'Color Fire' CD will be included with the price of admission. The night will begin with a listening of the EP and will close out with DJ sets from DJ John Solarz, White Flashes and MemCave.

Kill Lincoln

Mon, April 21, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:45 pm - All Ages - $5  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Following in the footsteps of bands like Less Than Jake, The Suicide Machines, and We Are The Union, Washington DC's Kill Lincoln blends no-bullshit ska-punk with addictive rock anthems, throwing in the energy of a basement hardcore show for good measure. Their recklessly fun punk ethics collide with quality musicianship, sounding like the bastard son of Kid Dynamite and Streetlight Manifesto. If you're not circle-pitting then you're probably screaming along, and humming the horn lines while you're nursing your hangover the next day. Mixing in elements of hardcore, skate punk, and pop punk, there's something for everyone…as long as everyone likes it fast and fun.
