Next Week’s Great Upcoming Shows on GIMME:
Uniform: Premieres Monday, April 13th at 3:00pm EST/12:00pm PST – Uniform formed in New York City in 2013 when old friends Ben Greenberg (ex-The Men, Hubble, producer/engineer responsible for much of the Sacred Bones label catalog) and Michael Berdan (ex-Drunkdriver, York Factory Complaint) reconnected and realized that they had evolved to a similar place musically. Wanting as intimate an experience as possible, they decided to keep the project a two-man show, eschewing a live rhythm section for programmed drums and low-end synths, augmented with Greenberg playing guitar and Berdan handling vocals. Recent activity has found them adding Greg Fox on drums, collaborating with The Body and touring with Boris. Noise, electronics, industrial, thrash, experimental, and other elements filter into this band’s unique musical worldview, and Berdan himself takes us on a tour of his awesome personal library with a DJ session today. Hit the tip jar as well as they’ve been sidelined from their current tour plans.
Loviatar: Premieres Thursday, April 16th at 11:00am EST/8:00am PST – Loviatar borrows equally from the hazy gloom of My Bloody Valentine and the crushing riffs of Isis. With clearly sung vocals, equal parts somber and soaring, their thunderous elements of doom and post-metal contrast with hypnotic moments of atmospheric introspection to set them apart from others in the genre. On the release of their new self-titled LP on Prosthetic, JP and JD guest host on GIMME, and you can take the opportunity to use the tip jar to support these guys.
Eye Flys: Premieres Friday, April 17th 3:00pm EST/12:00pm PST – Due in part to the considerable pedigree of the band’s lineup (including members of Full of Hell, Backslider, Triac), the East Coast-based quartet creates steel-barbed riffs and beefy inventive rhythms delivered with exponential force. Their 2019 EP Context was a concise and punishing debut, hinting at the unrelenting abilities Eye Flys holds. On latest release, Tub Of Lard, expectations are exceeded with ten tracks of maximum impact in their lean and focused raw power. Tune in for a guest DJ show (also doubling up on a tip jar program to raise proceeds for the band) next Friday!
ALSO…. Ross The Boss, founding member of The Dictators and Manowar, returns with his much loved and sorely missed show From The Cage on Tuesday, April 14th at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PST!
