Yakuza is an avant-garde metal band, formed in Chicago in 1999. They have been acclaimed for their incorporation of jazz and world music elements.

Jess Williamson

Saturday August 11th | Doors at 8pm

The music is appealingly swampy, occasionally static in ways that recalls Amen Dunes and the spectral spin of Alice Coltrane, until Williamson’s voice bursts through the circle in an ecstatic push. The songs unfold slowly, but her intimate delivery and the minute explorations of her band draw you into the details. She asks her subject to suspend their fixation on the passage of time in “Forever,” and she’s asking us to do so, too — come and get lost and see what you can see.

Cosmic Wink was recorded in Dripping Springs, TX, at Duszynski’s property, where the band lived, worked, and cooked meals together for a week, with occasional breaks for wildflower gathering and loops through the cedar-spotted woods. Working from an intuitive feeling that it would take her seven years to establish herself musically, Williamson released her first two albums on her own Brutal Honest label, and intended to do the same with Cosmic Wink before signing to Mexican Summer.

Cosmic Wink is out May 11th – nearly seven years to the day after playing her first solo show — another quiet synchronicity. “I don’t feel like I’ve made it,” she says. “I feel like I’ve opened the door and walked through it.” On the other side? Everything the light chooses to illuminate.

w/ Lingua Ignota

Julianna Barwick // Mary Lattimore

Sunday July 22nd | Doors at 7pm

Julianna Barwick (Dead Oceans)
“Describing this hazy, hallucinogenic album from Brooklyn’s Julianna Barwick, you can neatly take Panda Bear’s trippier tracks as a jumping off point, as Barwick loops and layers beautiful vocal harmonies with a similar slow-motion deep sea vibe. But this lovely debut is more than just derivative, and the wordless sound collages are transporting” – OTHER MUSIC`

Mary Lattimore – Harpist
Mary Lattimore is a Los Angeles-based harpist. She experiments with effects through her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand pedal harp, concocting half-structured improvisations which can include both ambient glitter and unsettling noise. Her first solo record, the Withdrawing Room, was released on Desire Path Recordings in 2014. The solo recordings that followed, At the Dam and Collected Pieces, were released by Ghostly International.

Dent May

Monday, July 2nd | Doors at 7pm
w/ Shannon Lay

“Don’t wanna move to Southern California / I wasn’t really meant for LA…” So sang Dent May once upon a time, now he’s eating those words with a side of avocado toast in his new Los Angeles bungalow. What made the lifelong Mississippi boy pull up stakes and head west? “No one looks at you funny if you wear a tuxedo to the supermarket.” What he means is he moved there to shake up his surroundings, clear his head, and write the most accomplished record of his young career, the magical mystery tour de force Across the Multiverse.

Black Milk & Nat Turner Band

Wednesday, June 27th | Doors at 7pm
w/ Truth 66 and DJ Shakedown

With more than a decade and a half of industry experience and a rich catalog of recordings, Black Milk has transitioned from one of hip-hop’s rising stars to a genre-bending virtuoso with a well-rounded pedigree as a producer, rapper and performer. Acclaimed by outlets such as Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and The Wall Street Journal, the Detroit-born artist has released seven solo rap albums, a handful of EPs and instrumental projects, and has collaborated with numerous artists, including Jack White, Danny Brown (most recently producing Danny Brown’s “Really Doe” ft. Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul), Slum Village and many more. Returning to the scene amidst a turbulent political climate, Black Milk’s latest album, FEVER, is a socially aware body of work with a multi-genre soundscape, building on his style of fusing electronic programming with samples and live music. FEVER is out now via Mass Appeal Records and Black Milk’s label Computer Ugly.
