Tuesday: Quest for Fire @ The Summit

We need new jams from Quest for Fire – it’s been 2 years since the spaced-out trippiness of Lights from Paradise! With a tour currently underway, maybe that means the dudes are working on new material and road testing some of it. Maybe not. We’ll have to find out Tuesday night when the Toronto-based band rolls into The Summit for a show with local like-minded psychedelic-stoner jammers – and Tee Pee Records labelmates – the Main Street Gospel. Cover at the door is $8, show kicks off around 9pm.

Tonight: Mondo Drag @ The Summit

A gap in the tour schedule led to a last minute booking for Mondo Drag and The Main Street Gospel tonight at The Summit. Back when I was a kid in the ’70s, we called Mondo Drag’s style of music “acid rock” – it scared those of us who listened to pop music on AM radio stations – and it was made by guys with long hair, tank tops, and mustaches … sweet, sweet mustaches.

Mondo Drag’s latest, New Rituals, is full of spacey, psychedelic epic jams and if there is one CD that I listened to more than any other during the summer of 2010, it was this one.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em and then head to The Summit to give our homeboys The Main Street Gospel some love and show their out-of-town friends in Mondo Drag some hospitality.

Through the Roof premiere at Gateway Theatre, featuring music from Brainbow

From the Through the Roof website

In January of 2010, the C.H.E.K Institute teamed up with the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Overstock.com and many other key sponsors to help assist the first female paraplegic athlete to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. On Sunday, January 31st, 2010, at approximately 5:30 PM, Erica Davis, a paraplegic since 2005, along with Tara Butcher, an amputee below the left-knee, reached the summit.

This successful project is designed to bring awareness to the capabilities of Challenged Athletes everywhere in that anyone can accomplish anything and everything they put their minds to. The preparation and climb were filmed by Captured Life Productions to be compiled into a documentary entitled Through the Roof, to be released in late Spring 2010.

It’s late spring now, and Donewaiting faves and fantastic motherfuckers Brainbow have music featured in the film and said film is premiering at the Gateway on Saturday. If you’re not going to Nelsonville, go to this, then go to Skully’s for the after-party where Brainbow, Main Street Gospel and EYE will rock your face off.

Shit’s gonna be through the roof maaaaan.

Main St. Gospel Debut Slated for June 29th

Now this is the kind of press release I like to receive:

The Main Street Gospel Sign With Tee Pee Records, Set To Release Debut Album “Love Will Have Her Revenge” June 29th!

The Main Street Gospel have signed with Tee Pee Records and will release their debut album “Love Will Have Her Revenge” on June 29th.

The Main Street Gospel is a Columbus, Ohio trio who mix psych-infused classic rock with dusty country vibes and dirt-stained blues. The band was born in 2005, when Barry Dean–former tambourine shaker for the Brian Jonestown Massacre–began writing songs with longtime friend Ryan “Tito” Ida. Adam Scoppa joined the band on drums the following year. Continue reading

Columbus band Mount Carmel to release next record on Siltbreeze


Mount Carmel has been getting some local love on the message board recently, and the band’s profile is sure to grow before our very eyes with news of the trio’s next record coming out on Siltbreeze — an especially familiar name in Columbus b/c of Times New Viking, Psychedelic Horseshit and ex-pat Pink Reason, all of whom have releases on the boutique Philly label. (Good work, Columbus.)

Ah, but don’t start the gripefest just yet, shitgaze haters. If you’re not familiar with Mount Carmel, this trio — Kevin Skubak and brothers Pat and Matthew Reed — gets compared to Cream whenever I hear their name come up. So you’re more likely to catch them playing with fellow blues-rock lovers The Main Street Gospel than with local Siltbreeze labelmates.

Still, it’s blues-rock under the influence of Siltbreeze’s longtime Ohio affiliate Mike Rep. And maybe it’s not such a big leap for Siltbreeze after all, given TNV’s infatuation with the ’60s. Now Mount Carmel brings us the ’70s. (I know, Cream broke up in ’69. But you get what I mean.)

Anyway, as Pat Reed tells Donewaiting, “We went to Musicol with Mike [Rep] and Adam Smith for a day this summer. They set a bunch of mics and stuff up and we played. We had a real fun time.” Rep and Smith also mixed the album, which Reed says should be around 40 minutes and is due to come out in late February or March on Siltbreeze.

Upcoming Mount Carmel shows in Columbus:
11/6: The Treehouse w/ Brainbow, Val
11/23: Carabar w/ Earthless
12/26: Carabar w/ Nick Tolford and Company
