FREAKIN’ WEEKEND VI [IN PICS]

FW6-43

We’re about a month out of Freakin’ Weekend VI, and the memories are already becoming a blur. Did Gnash, dressed in FW garb, really introduce Natural Child? Did Wolf Eyes provide direct support for Those Darlins? Did JEFF cover fucking CINNAMON GIRL? It’s all true, and thanks to three of the baddest, raddest ladies in Nashville, the whole thing is preserved for the ages. To those with a discerning eye, Julia Bee’s photos are black and white film, Amelia Anderson’s are full color film, and Emily Quirk’s are full color digital. Thank you to these girls for their beautiful work.

And thank you, sweet freaks of the weekend, for coming out and being a part of it all. It’s take a few months of planning to put these things together, but year in and year out you all give us even more in return. You’re what make the weekend so special for us, so we thank you. Now without further adieu, click on to see this year in pics…

Unholy You

Unholy Two

Unholy Two

Tomorrow night is one not to be missed, ladies and gentlemen. Unholy Two are bringing their brand of Midwest loud (like, I mean, not just sonic but visual and visceral loudness) music to Nashville. You would be doing yourself a disservice to miss this show and we expect to see all you corndogs there. To make things even better, Cole K.’s new kid on the block (and from everything we’ve heard, excellent) project Essential Tremors will be opening the show with the crazy-energetic-hardcore-where-do-you-get-this-energy-and-can-we-buy-it Shadraq. Show’s at the East Room, tomorrow, 9pm shaaaarp. Raincheck your movie night with your significant other and we’ll see ya there. Be sweet ;)

WHERE WENT WONDER

5612717100_4e61a8b39b_b

PHOTO BY BEKAH COPE

Craig Brown is our BOY. From our first hang back at Danzig’s when he was playing with Terrible Twos to drinking Jim Beam and Vernors slushes up in the D, we realized long ago that this is Craig’s world and we’re just living in it. He’s already done a few solo-style releases under the name Brownstown Gals, but it looks like he’s finally stepping out under his Christian name with a single on the newly formed Western Where Records. The song, “Shoulda Been Fishin’,” hits you like a sober morning, waking up to a realization something you spent the previous night trying to forget. It wouldn’t be Craig if it wasn’t peppered with humor, but there’s no denying the honesty in those words, that guitar. The single isn’t out yet, but you can head over to Western Where’s site now to sign up for updates on this and other releases.

THE RUNDOWN – 3.30.2015 – 4.5.2015

Rundown

We’ve somehow managed to make it through another winter here at Deadquarters, which means SPRING is upon us, which means S U M M E R is almoooost upon us. Then the ~tite~ will flow like wine. During the in-between weeks shows can be hit or miss it, but fun can still be found. Jazz man Bill Frisell is doing a live accompaniment at the Belcourt tonight, Bill Orcutt and Willy T are at the VFW Hall tomorrow while Jim Jarmusch’s new band Sqürl is at Third Man, Ttotals and the realest post-punkers Sex Hotel are at the Moth Hole Thursday night, and some sort of “Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel” is happening at Portland Brew Friday night. Sounds COOL to us.

Phew, finally back in the swing of things after the one-two hit of Freakin’ Weekend and SXSW. Huge thank you to everyone who came out and participated in Freakin’ Weekend this year. We had a serious blast, and we’ll have photos of the whole fest up here soon. For now, we’ve got a good week ahead. Wand, Tweens, and more are at the End tomorrow while Deerhoof is at Mercy Lounge, Father John Misty and King Tuff are at Marathon on Wednesday while Las Rosas and Savoy Motel are at 1705 Stewart, there’s a triple-header at Stone Fox on Thursday with Steve Gunn, Juan Wauters, and William Tyler, the Faux Ferocious release show is on Friday, and the motherloving ramblin’ gamblin’ man himself Bob Seger is at Bridgestone on Saturday. That’s what I LIKE.

ALL THE WEEKEND YOU CAN FREAKIN’

Can you believe it? The week of the freak is HERE. It’s ours, and all that’s left to do is enjoy it. To keep confusion to a minimum, we thought we’d make one final post with (hopefully) all the answers you could question. For starterS, you see that poster up there?? Pretty SICK, huh?? That’s the poster for this year, and it was designed by the wonderful Story Beeson with some layout assistance from our main squeeze Josh Shearon. We’ll have posters and shirts with the design available at the pop-up shop, but more about that later. Before we get ahead of ourselves, why don’t we have a lil lesson review on the nighttime shows?

Of course the Weekend ain’t Freakin’ without the annual POP-UP SHOP. We’re changing things up a little bit this year and moving operations over to Fort Houston [500 Houston St], but the debauchery will include everything you’ve come to expect. We’ll have tapes and records by all the bands playing the weekend and beyond as well as a limited supply of shirts and posters for the weekend. Our good buddies Queen of Stars will be there slinging their vintage wares the prices that are nicest. We’ll have a’pizza from Two Boots, a’beerza from Yazoo, and sodas and more free of charge for all you freaks in charge. We’ll also have some righteous day shows…

FRIDAY MARCH 13 DAY SHOW
SAVOY MOTEL
QUICHENIGHT
BEN PARKS
DJ SUFIS
AT THE POP-UP SHOP
$FREE – ALL AGES – 3PM

Though the shop will be open noon to five starting Thursday, the day shows won’t kick off til 3PM on Friday. Before and in-between bands, we’ll have Calvin and Evan from the Sufis spinning records. Then first up to the plate will be Ben Parks. As previously mentioned, he’s a true man about town, and you’ve probably seen him play whether you realize it or note [hello Fox Fun, OGG, Sunseeker]. Here he’ll be performing under his given name for the first time with some new material as well as old favorites. After that we’ll have Quichenight, the solo project of PUJOL guitar wizard Brett Rosenberg. The newest incarnation of the band also features Fox Fun’s Asher Horton on guitar and thee one and only Daniel Pujol on drums, and if that ain’t an A-Team we don’t know what is. Rounding out the bill is Savoy Motel, a new super-group of sorts featuring Jeffrey Novak [Cheap Time], Jessica McFarland [Cheap Time, Heavy Cream], Mimi Galbierz [Wieners, Heavy Cream, Slammers], and Dillon Watson [D. Watusi, Circle K]. If you missed their first show at the Fort Houston birthday bash last month, here’s your second chance. They bring the groove to make you move.

SATURDAY MARCH 14 DAY SHOW
WESTERN MEDICATION
SLAMMERS
KING BITCH
CHAINSHOT
DJ DORKER VIBES
AT THE POP-UP SHOP
$FREE – ALL AGES – 3PM

Continuing in freak week tradition, our Saturday show will lean on the gnarlier side. DJ Dorker Vibes [aka Ben Swank of Ultras S/C, Soledad Brothers, and Third Man fame] will be on the ones and twos, and Chainshot will lead the way. Featuring members of about a million other Nashville punk bands [Pissbath, Switchblade, and Cannomen to name a few], Chainshot have likely played more local shows in the past year than any other band playing Freakin’ Weekend. They just released their second single last month, and boy is it a ripper. Don’t miss ‘em. After them is King Bitch, the most promising product yet from the mind of Casey Weissbuch. They released a cassette on Infinity Cat last year and have really been picking up steam in the last couple months. Sure to be a shit show is Slammers, Nashville’s very own hardcore super-group featuring members of JEFF the Brotherhood, Cy Barkley and the Way-Outsiders, Cannomen, Heavy Cream, and more. They haven’t played one of our day shows since Freakin’ Weekend III, and we couldn’t be more stoked to see them again in this setting. Rounding out the bill will be Western Medication, who we can count on to wash the day show away in an amps-to-11 wall of sound. Western Meds, featuring members of Cannomen, Watcherand Idle Bloom, has been hard at work in the past year, doing mini-tours what seems like every weekend and putting out tape after tape of music that splits the difference between 80s punk and our favorite Smiths (Robert and Mark E.). Can’t wait to see what 2015 holds for these dudes!

That’s about it, babies. Again, we would like to thank Third Man Records, Yazoo Brewery, Do615, Grimey’s, and Two Boots for sponsoring this year. If you’re a photographer and you’d like a press pass, email nashvillesdeadrecords@gmail.com and we’ll get you fixed up. If you’re tryna to get your freak on but just can’t afford the price of admission, do the same. This weekend comes but once a year and it’s too much fun to be denied to any one person. If you can afford it, you might wanna go ahead and get your tickets now because these things will probably sell out! Alright y’all, see you on Thursday!
