Last month we went to the Shitty Barn season opener featuring S. Carey. I took some photos but mostly just enjoyed being in one of the coziest, intimate venues in the Midwest. Here are some of my unedited shots from the night. Click on any photo to go the album.
If the cover art for this mix isn’t a dead giveaway, Cribshitter‘s Diaper Daniels has a penchant for the ridiculous. When I saw Diaper Daniels and company play earlier this year, the band was sporting traditional Bethlehem gear in honor of their current release, Methlehem. This afternoon I learned that the band is currently mining material for an upcoming release tentatively called Jizz Hands. Oh my. Despite outwardly profane appearances, Cribshitter is at heart a deeply catchy band with a heart of gold. To witness their mayhem live, click here to purchase tickets to the Shitty Barn’s barn blowout party on October 20th.
If Diaper Daniels looks familiar but you can’t place his face, scratch off that crusty mustache and behold Karl Christenson of our Madison fave Icarus Himself. Straddling two worlds, Christenson made us a “mellow one for a mellow autumn” ranging from the tongue-in-cheek “Your Party” by Ween to the earnest ELO’s “Telephone Line”. Check it out below, and be sure to catch at least one of Christenson’s projects this fall.
