WHERE: Ambrose West, 312 Haywood Road, 28806WHEN: Sunday June 24, 2018DOORS: 6pm | SHOW: 7pmGENRE: psychedelic rock / popAGES: all agesTICKETS: $10SEATING: standing room only / scattered seatsWEB LISTINGFACEBOOK EVENTBlac Rabbit:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEOBorn and raised in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with. Growing up surrounded by hip hop culture and all it'ss glory, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. When they began writing songs in high school, they taught themselves how to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles. After high school they formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. In order to make some pocket money, Rah and Amiri decided to start performing music on the NYC subway. They soon discovered that people really enjoy hearing them sing Beatles songs, so they kept doing that, slowly building a reputation around the city while also performing their original material at some of New York's best venues for up and coming acts. They maintain that sort of dual life to this day. On December 23rd, 2017, the band release their debut self-titled EP, which was also self recorded and self mixed. On January 26th, 2018, they were filmed performing Beatles songs on the train by New York Nico, the self proclaimed "Unofficial talent scout of New York City" who posted the video to his 121K followers on Instagram. Since then, the band has seen their fan base increase significantly and will be releasing new music, and hitting the road in 2018.

with Bell Witch
Epic, crushing, and heavy beyond words, YOB has achieved legendary status in recent years due to their unmatched aesthetic and incredible body of work. Formed in 1996 in Eugene, Oregon under the leadership of doom metal mastermind Mike Scheidt on guitars and vocals, the group initially released a three song demo tape in 2000 that garnered them international attention. Drawing comparisons to groups like Neurosis, Sleep and Electric Wizard, YOB succeeded in developing modern sounding doom metal that hearkened back to the classics.In 2002, YOB released their debut album Elaborations of Carbon followed by Catharsis in 2003, a three song record that clocked in at a colossal 50 minutes. The buzz about YOB was beginning to grow and the trio began to tour more extensively. Remaining quite prolific during this period, YOB continued to release an album each year with The Illusion of Motion coming in 2004 followed by The Unreal Never Lived in 2005. Despite all the momentum, YOB disbanded in 2006.In 2008 the band returned from hiatus and has remained strong ever since with Travis Foster on drums and Aaron Rieseberg on bass. Reinvigorated and reinspired, YOB released The Great Cessation in 2009. It was doom with a psychedelic twist, a sound that Pitchfork referred to as cosmic doom. At this point in their career, the band found increased exposure in the media, with The New York Times going so far as to call them one of the best bands in North America after a performance at Scion Rock Festival.For 2011s Atma , YOB took a more organic approach to recording, opting to track everything at once. In Scheidts own words, he wanted the record to sound grizzly, with hair on it. Three year later, the group released Clearing the Path to Ascend , a record that upheld their legacy as a top notch doom metal act and was hailed by Rolling Stone as the #1 metal album of the year.Now in 2018, the band has announced their newest album Our Raw Heart to be released on Relapse Records. As for how Our Raw Heart will be received? Mike Scheidt (guitar/vocals) is wise enough to know that its out of his hands. I think every era of Yob fan will find something on there to digits just a matter of whether they can go on the whole trip or not, he ventures. And thats none of my business. The music has a life of its own. It goes out there into the world and its gonna be received however its received.

“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5, NIV). How do we do that? How do we think, feel, and see what is flowing from God’s heart? Though he was in prison, the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Philippi with joy and thanksgiving, and he soon revealed the keys to the mind of Christ: Remember God’s provision; live selflessly; and fellowship with each other in your current sufferings, reflecting the peace of God. Paul also warns us against false teaching and the error of legalism. Come be challenged and changed by God’s Word. Experience deeper joy, humility, friendships, and unity—and see yourself engaging in conversations that change lives around you.

“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5, NIV). How do we do that? How do we think, feel, and see what is flowing from God’s heart? Though he was in prison, the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Philippi with joy and thanksgiving, and he soon revealed the keys to the mind of Christ: Remember God’s provision; live selflessly; and fellowship with each other in your current sufferings, reflecting the peace of God. Paul also warns us against false teaching and the error of legalism. Come be challenged and changed by God’s Word. Experience deeper joy, humility, friendships, and unity—and see yourself engaging in conversations that change lives around you.

"These dreams are more than paper things," sings Matt Quinn on Mt. Joy's infectious folk-rocker "Astrovan," a warm, yearning bit of road-trip philosophy that posits the existence of a Deadhead Jesus cruising the dusty highways of the countryside, nursing a roach on his way to only He knows where. It's an auspicious line from a band predicated on the revival of teenage dreams.Mt. Joy started off as a rekindling of shared musical ambitions between Philadelphia high school friends Matt Quinn (vocals, guitar) and Sam Cooper (guitar). Reunited in Los Angeles thanks to the ebbs and flows of adult life, the pair met multi-instrumentalist Michael Byrnes through a Craigslist ad. They named themselves Mt. Joy as an ode to a mountain in Valley Forge National Park near Sam's childhood home, and together, with Byrnes' roommate Caleb Nelson producing, they recorded three songs and sent them out into the world, hoping for the best. "I knew I still wanted to write songs, but the realities of life made that dream seem pretty impossible," Quinn says.Much to the band's amazement, "Astrovan" accomplished the impossible. Without initial promotion or fanfare, the song took off on Spotify, racking up 5 million streams to date. "The irony of 'Astrovan' was that song was really about being stuck in a life and wanting to have the opportunity to pursue a dream, and in an instant it gave us that opportunity. " Quinn says. Mt. Joy quickly transitioned from a part-time calling into a full-fledged band rounded out by Byrnes on bass, Sotiris Eliopoulos on drums and Jackie Miclau on keyboard.Come 2017, Mt. Joy hit the road, and hit it hard: They played tour dates alongside the likes of The Shins, The Head and The Heart, The Lone Bellow, and Whitney, and popped up at some of the summer's biggest festivals, including Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza and Made In America. "We were put on some big shows very quickly," Quinn says. "The growth for us has been exponential - we've really just become a family that's constantly pushing each other and the live show to be great." They eventually caught the attention of Dualtone Records and began work on their debut album.Steeped in folk-rock tradition and powered by the intuitive creative connection between Quinn and Cooper, the songs on 'Mt. Joy' depict Quinn wrestling with his own conscience, where the mundane and the fantastic collide as he processes tragedy, society, and love. Opener "I'm Your Wreck" describes "monsters in (the) closet, using up the wi-fi" as it cycles from its desperate, spiraling verses to its swinging, stubbornly optimistic coda, while the loping, plaintive chords of "Younger Days" meditate on a frayed psyche and the fear of choosing the wrong path. "Sheep," with its collapsing, hoarse-voiced cry of "freedom was paid in blood," is a post-Trump salvo on the responsibilities of the fortunate to overcome political and social despondency. And on "Silver Lining," perhaps the album's brightest moment, Quinn surveys the damage of hard drugs and the vicious cycle of addiction, as the song's melancholic sentiment kicks into its fervid, defiant chorus, all shout-along vocals and trilling guitars.Taken together, the self titled 'Mt. Joy' LP is a startlingly open document, wracked with the anxieties and fears that come just as life seems to start working out. It's a natural reaction from a wary band like Mt. Joy - the result of a sort of professional vertigo, as they've gone from virtual unknowns to hot young commodity in little over a year. But there's a sense of hope underlying everything, girded by the fact that the Mt. Joy LP is an impressive, honest portrayal of a young band facing that moment where dreams become reality, and finding beauty in the exhilarating uncertainty of it all.
