Caboladies featured in the video above
@ White Flag Projects / 4568 Manchester Ave
7 p.m. / $10 students - $20 general / all ages

New Music Circle presents Caboladies. Staples of midwest experimental music, Caboladies uses electronics to form complex aural landscapes. Live visuals will be supplied by special guest Robert Beatty. Not to be missed!


Whoarfrost (Baltimore, MD) featured in the video above
Red Squad
Segmentation Fault

@ Foam / 3358 S. Jefferson Ave.
8 pm / $5 / all ages

Hairy prog by way of Baltimore, Whoarfrost converges with Midwest post-punk. Expect a perverse rekindling of King Crimson with free-jazz obsessed drumming. Also, go see Red Squad. They're great and pretty underrated is this city.

Barely Free Partial Prisoners (EP Release)
Little Big Bangs

The Livery / 3211 Cherokee St.
9 PM / free / 21+

Barely Free improvises on back tracks while its members sling rhymes with a social and political bend. Noisy, unruly and always solid. Pick up their new disk for a clean five bucks. Little Big Bangs is a foursome of '90s worship, invoking Sonic Youth and Pavement.


Side FX (Indianapolis, IN) featured in the video above
Blind X Justice (Indianapolis, IN)
Totally Gay Cop
Who Fucking Cares?
Pink Sock

Bonerville / Drive around on Michigan Avenue
9 PM / $5 / all ages

The video we posted sounds like a blown out tape thrown in a campfire and kicked down a dirt road. Hopefully Side FX hits Bonerville with the same trashcan sound. We all want to feel like our ears are broken without actually becoming deaf, right?

The two of us happen to freelance for the Riverfront Times' music section. More often than not, we choose to push our benign thoughts on the masses with our expert (amateur?) opinion on a variety of subjects. The latest stems from touring and playing host to fellow musicians. Check them out here:
