KDVS Presents another weird house show during our fundraiser! We'll have a laptop set up at the show to give live donations, please donate to ensure more events like this happen. Would you ever believe that Blank Dogs would be playing in Davis??? KDVS makes this possible!
Blank Dogs (New York/In the Red/Woodsist/Captured Tracks)
To call the one-man project Blank Dogs prolific is a bit of an understatement. Although Blank Dogs releases have been of the small-potatoes variety (being issued on a number of small independent labels), they have been numerous and critically well received: 2007 saw a number of the project’s releases on critical best-of lists, and more was sure to come in 2008, as Blank Dogs had prepared a slate of a dozen releases for that year. This rather unbelievable list included some 7” EPs, an untitled full-length, and a handful of singles anthologies on labels like Troubleman, Slowboy, and 4:4:2. In 2009, he was snatched up by In The Red Records, which released Under And Under as a CD and as an extended LP with five bonus tracks. For fans of Eat Skull, Gary War, Nice Face, Factums, Psychedelic Horseshit, Tyvek etc.
Cosmetics (Vancouver, B.C./Captured Tracks)
Cosmetics are a two piece from Vancouver, BC. Their music is made for dancing, and with feeling and attention to the details. Their trip is sleek and synthetic meets human emotion. Cosmic glamour meets do-it-yourself. Voice and a rhythm. Frosty tropics and hazy nites. Love on the beat. Nic M and Aja Emma formed Cosmetics in Summer 2008, the first band for both of them. In 2009 they put together the Tuff Trax 8-track studio in their home where they work on sound and visuals every day. Cosmetics is their lifestyle. Their debut 7” Soft Skin b/w Black Leather Gloves was released by Brooklyn label Captured Tracks in January 2010. Their second 7” Sleepwalking b/w The Cries will be released in late spring 2010, to be followed by a self-titled debut LP in September.
G. Green (Sacramento/ Malt Duck)
G GREEN IS SHREDDER ANTI-POWER POP, MUSIC FOR THE HAPPILY DEPRESSED -- THEIR SONGS ARE SLOW BUT SOLID AND MAKE YOU THINK OF MOM'S FRESHLY BAKED AMERICAN APPLE PIE, THAT GIRL YOU REALLY LIKE AND THINK LIKES YOU BUT ACTUALLY DOESN'T LIKE YOU BACK, RAINY WINTER DAYS, AND LONG SUMMER NIGHT CONVERSATIONS ON THE PHONE WITH BROS WHEN YR GROUNDED ALL AT ONCE.
