Vintage Pistol

A 5-piece roots rock band out of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Comprised of a heavy rhythm section, searing electric guitars, keyboards, and harmonica, they are described by most as wild, rambunctious and jam heavy. You’ll hear shades of the Allman Brothers, the Stones, Van Morrison and The Marcus King Band in their music.

They take the old road to rock and roll fame and fortune. Relentless touring. Hundreds of gigs, from city to city, night after night, fueled by drugs and booze and the relentless desire to be heard and to connect. No matter where or when you see them, you’ll never catch them on an off night. Vintage Pistol fires no rusty bullets. They explode like a flintrock spark to black powder and rage wildly and unpredictably throughout their shows.

Vintage Pistol released its debut album “Trial and Error” in March 2019. The spirit they bring to music has endeared them to many in the jam circuit. Collaborating and touring with the likes of Andy Frasco, CBDB, and Big Something.The band has also supported and played alongside the likes of Tyler Childers, Devon Allman (Allman Betts Band), Consider The Source, Kalu and The Electric Joint, Wild Adriatic and plenty more. Be sure to catch them on the road during festival season with slots at Backwoods Music Festival, FloydFest, Moonshiners Ball, Kickin’ It On The Creek, and more TBA!

DrFameus (Allen of the Disco Biscuits) joins electro-rock powerhouse, Tweed, at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center on Thurs, January 9, 2020. Adv tix $12.

DrFameus

An electronic music project created by the versatile drummer, Allen Aucoin. Allen explores many realms with DrFameus ranging from breakbeats to drum ‘n’ bass to dubstep to techno/house. It is his ability to survey the crowd and then improvise that has allowed Aucoin to play in such diverse projects over the years.

Allen began his musical career not onstage, but instead in education and composition. This included instructing and writing for award winning percussion ensembles and teaching drum lessons. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts Allen was given the nickname DrFameus and it has stuck ever since. Like so many of us, college was not exactly a punctual time for Allen. He became known as the guy that was famously late all the time; so much that a friend gave him the honorary doctorate, DrFameus.

After moving back to the southeast from Boston, Allen continued to work as a teacher and percussion instructor while touring with the band “Skydog Gyspy.” In 2005 Aucoin acquired his current role as the drummer for Philadelphia electronic act, the Disco Biscuits. Since winning the “drum off” held by the Biscuits in Atlantic City, Allen has played 450-500 shows with the quartet including shows at the Gorge Amphitheatre and Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Tweed

Electro rock powerhouse, Tweed, is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of disco, indie rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of composition and improvisation. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging disco dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.

Hailing from Philadelphia, members Joe Vela, AJ DiBiase, Jon Tomczak, Dan McDonald, and Charlie Field have graced the stages of countless clubs and festivals across the country since forming at University of Delaware in 2010. Some of their most notable performances include Peach Festival, Camp Bisco, Jam On The River, Brooklyn Bowl, Union Transfer, and the TLA having shared the bill with acts like the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, Odesza, Tipper, Lotus, Reggie Watts, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Beats Antique, Lettuce, Papadosio, JRAD, Bassnectar, and Santana. With relentless style, blissful melody, and a uniquely cohesive sound, Tweed has proven they can bring the party anywhere they go.

 

1.18 The Rust Showcase: Face Plant, Maxfield, Wessanders

The Rust Showcase: Face Plant, Maxfield, Wessanders

Saturday

January 18, 2020

Doors: 8PM

$15.00 General Admission

$25.00 For dual admission

Face Plant

Face Plant is the diabolical bass chemist bonding ionic melodies with torrential waves of rugged sound design. With a masterful understanding of numerous instruments and an uninhibited desire to further stimulate his production knowledge, Jason Shepherd (Face Plant) composes an unmistakably original formula for his bubbly, yet cathartic audio solutions, and lets them pulse with exuberant life both in the studio as well as during his live performances.

The face is the primary means of emotional expression. To plant is to place something with the intention to have it grow. It’s with these ideas in mind that Face Plant looks to create and express emotions through his music. In order to facilitate the growth of the mind, Face Plant aims to plant inspiration in his listeners and to become a plant of sorts himself; manufacturing emotions.
Face Plant has shared the stage with Ott., Jade Cicada, Zebbler Encanti Experience, Desert Dwellers, Kalya Scintilla, Bogtrotter, Sixis, kLL sMTH, CloZee, Supersillyus, Mumukshu, Unlimited Gravity, Cofresi, Goopsteppa and plenty more.

 

Maxfield

For audiences, Maxfield music strikes that critical balance between provoking thought and motivating movement. Maxfield uses an intergalactic imagination to create sonic contortions and space age thematics that challenge the intellect, while at the same time setting down a physical groove that’s impossible to ignore.

The Boston-based producer generally chooses not to adhere to trends in electronic songwriting. Instead, he indulges a wandering creativity that blurs the already hazy distinctions between sub-genres of electronic music. Whether he’s writing a seven-minute symphonic story or a glitch-laden dance floor wrecker, Maxfield’s willingness to experiment distinguishes him and leads to one-of-a-kind compositions.

Jake Maxfield (Maxfield) attended Berklee College of Music to cultivate his prolific skill with the guitar. Once there, though, the right combination of music, moments, and people soon found him studying electronic music and the technology behind it. Although Jake will still sometimes incorporate his own guitar riffs into his songs, raw, mechanized sound design is his specialty. Still, in funky bass lines and dramatic melodic flourishes one can hear the echoes of Jake’s instrumental upbringing.
To date Maxfield has supported other bass and glitch producers such as Opiuo, Thriftworks, kLL sMTH, Space Jesus, Whitebear, Bogtrotter, and Ill Gates. With a meticulous work ethic, he continues to expand and refine his sound design and compositional abilities at a dramatic pace.

 

Wessanders

Wessanders aka Kai Felsman is comfortable composing across various styles without fitting neatly into any one genre. Kai’s pursuit of visceral musical moments, combined with his education in electronic music production, results in a raw, exposed sound that’s still clean and refined from a production standpoint.

Musically speaking, Kai is a well-traveled individual. He’s heavily influenced by sounds and styles from around the world, particularly those on the African continent where’s he lived on two occasions. The dynamic polyrhythms common to world music are foundational for Wessanders. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, Kai is uniquely positioned to combine these diverse influences with the contemporary cutting-edge in sound design and arrangement to create impactful, one-of-a-kind bass music.

After cutting his teeth within New England’s electronic music community, Wessanders is branching out and reaching new markets. His fluid and engaging live performances captivate audiences, be they fans of glitch hop, dubstep, future bass, house, you name it. His music is complex yet accessible, so audiences can approach Wessanders from multiple angles, whether they’re audiophiles or just out for a good head nod. Regardless of circumstances, weight – that heavy, low-end content that provokes a strong physical response – remains the common denominator across the Wessanders catalog.
