Thursday we bring you Cave, a Chicago based quartet known for their krautrock influenced jams and sick live grooves. Their prolific touring has raised awareness of their excellent live shows. The group began the summer of 2005 in Columbia, Missouri playing mostly improvisational music. Since relocating, the group has released many LPs, EPs, 7s and Cassettes on various labels. Their 2010 release, Pure Moods, marked a creative turn in sound and landed them a spot as last year’s Pitchfork fest. Their atmospheric, funky sounds will sound great out on the Terrace! Wet Hair of Iowa City opens.
Friday night FLATFOOT 56 will play you a rollicking barrage of Celtic punk and folk-tinged hardcore. This band has spent 11 years rocking for fans from the South Side of Chicago to garnering an international audience with their intense and positive party-like energy. FLATFOOT 56’s new album, Black Thorn, was released on Old Shoe Records in the United States, Stomp Records in Canada, and Big Mouth Japan in Japan. Make sure you catch a Madison favorite, The Nod, playing their last show. Before them will be Tiny Riots, also from Madison. The night starts at 8:30 pm.
Saturday you must get to the Terrace as well to see The Ladybug Transistor, a Brooklyn-based indie pop group associated with The Elephant Six Collective. Over the course of some sixteen years and six remarkable albums, The Ladybug Transistor have confirmed their standing as the preeminent exponents of lush, formalist pop music. With a superlative new record, Clutching Stems, at the ready, their pursuit of a singular musical vision remains as true as ever. Look for The Ladybug Transistors new album, Clutching Stems, to be released on June 7th. Press: The The Ladybug Transistor will be putting on a psychedelic and highly eccentric show with the help from from opener Tammar.
Don’t miss this show, or the rest of our Terrace weekend!
