'Chicago's Cave spiritually hail from a weird quadrant where the German pulse of Can and Amon Düül II overlap post-punk Britain.' That's what he said. WOW! What a glowing recommendation." - Tinymixtapes

P.G. Six
Pat Gubler, a.k.a P.G. Six came on the scene in 1994, as a member of Memphis Luxure, a noise/rock band from Port Chester, NY. That band morphed into Tower Recordings, a musically omnivorous ensemble that released several albums on the Siltbreeze and Communion labels over the past decade. Pat's first solo album, "Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites" (Amish 014) saw the light of day in 2001, followed by "The Well of Memory" (Amish 019) in 2004. "Music From the Sherman Box Series" (AMI 024), a collection of instrumentals arrived in Fall 2006. His music fuses an unlikely range of influences including 60s British folk, country rock, & experimental music. P.G. Six has shared the stage with a variety of performers including: Ghost, Slint, Yo la tengo, Michael Hurley, & The Incredible String Band. His 4th album, Slightly Sorry was released Feb 2007 on Drag City.
Running - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Running is one of America's best psych/punk bands. Running sounds to us like Clockcleaner, if they played twice as fast and half as long. The vocals are reverbed beyond recognition, the drums are pummeling, and the bass and guitar are abrasive feedback-laden. After pumping out a couple of incredible cassette tape only releases, Running went into the studio and recorded some of their material (semi) professionally. Those recordings have now been preserved to wax as Running's debut 12" EP. This eponymous EP comes housed in a jacket with really interestingly created artwork* and contains exactly 13 totally brutal weird punk songs. If these guys were jockier, they'd be a hardcore band. Thankfully, they're too arty for that ish. We'd love to point you in the direction of the band's Myspace page for a preview, but they don't have one. Trust us on this one, or preview "#1 Dad" on the Permanent Records Chicago Myspace page. This record fucking rips! The first pressing is limited to 500 copies!
