with Heaven   

Reformed shoegazing legends Swervedriver formed in the mid 80s in Oxford. Their driving, rocky take on the shoegazing sound marked them out from their peers, who notably included fellow Oxford group Ride. Signing to Creation Records the band released some critically acclaimed albums before record company problems set in. A lengthy hiatus was broken by news of a reformation in 2008.

Everything Is Terrible! 
presents DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoociez!   
Those krazed VHS-hunting pupz from Everything Is Terrible! (everyone's favorite found footage chop shoppe) are back with their third inner-eye-opening feature - containing a feat never before attempted in either human or canine history. EIT! asks but a few simple questions: 1) "What if we made a movie composed ENTIRELY out of dog-related found footage?"; 2) 'What if this magickal movie, made up of thousands of other dog movies, was also a remake of Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 masterpiece The Holy Mountain?"; and, 3) "What if we went on the road performing an all-new "live in fur" show that picked up where Cirque Du Soleil and The Rock-A-Fire Explosion left off?" Well, let's stop asking dumb rhetorical questions because this never-ending spiral of World-Pup winning, sunglasses-wearing, murder-solving, skateboarding pooches is real! This is it! Are you dog enough to go fetch it? ARFFFFFF!

Wednesday, April 4th

Neon Indian

with Friends   

An elusive new project from composer Alan Palomo, Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui.

Cloud Nothings

 with A Classic Education / Library Time       

It's been a crazy year for Cloud Nothings since they burst onto the music scene last winter. At the time main man Dylan Baldi was eighteen, living at home, and making lo-fi indie rock on a crappy computer in his parent's suburban basement outside Cleveland. For a producer on his 1st album, Dylan chose Baltimore's Chester Gwazda, known for his work with Dan Deacon and Future Islands. Come and welcome Dylan & Cloud Nothings back to Cleveland!

Revival Tour

8pm doors | 9pm show
$13 adv | $15 dos 
with Chuck Ragan (of Hot Water Music) / Dan Andriano (of Alkaline Trio and The Emergency Room) / Cory Branan / Nathaniel Rateliff

Folk music was born from a rich tradition of giving and openness-and no one has done more to bring that original spirit back to the genre in recent years than Chuck Ragan has with The Revival Tour. Ragan-who is well-known as both a solo recording and touring artist as well as guitarist/vocalist for the legendary punk act Hot Water Music-conceptualized the idea for the Revival Tour in 2005 along with his wife Jill Ragan, however it didn't come to fruition until 2008 when Ragan hit the road with Avail's Tim Barry, Lucero's Ben Nichols and a cast of revolving guests-including Against Me!'s Tom Gabel-for the tour's inaugural year.
