Still amazed that Kelley Deal performed in an alley this past fall as part of the Independents’ Day Festival. For the past year or so, Kelley’s been working with Mike Montgomery (Ampline) under the name R. Ring though one suspects that with an upcoming Breeders reunion tour (thus far limited to a handful of European dates), R. Ring performances might become a bit rarer.
This is a pretty big event for Kobo and it’s being treated as such – there will be 70 seats available in the main performance room with limited standing room only space available for those who don’t get seats.
Your last chance at securing pre-sale tickets are by swinging by Kobo Tuesday evening from 6:30 to midnight. After that, you’ll have to take your chance at the door on Thursday night. Capacity will be capped at 100, so you snooze, you lose.

Here’s a just-released video of the Breeders’ Kelley Deal and Ampline’s Mike Montgomery aka R. Ring performing in the basement of the Texas State Capitol building during this year’s SXSW. The beautifully hypnotic “Fall Out and Fire” is from a forthcoming 7-inch on Misra Records.
Columbus folks can catch R. Ring tonight (Wed, 5/9) at the Tree Bar with Feature Films and Joel Walter with Keith Novicki ($8).
So, yeah, I’m going. More to be added. Tickets here. Full release:

You can catch Kelley Deal’s newish band R. Ring Friday at Skully’s, part of the Ohio Film + Music Festival.
We’re just over a week away from the Ohio Film+Music Festival, which means we’re just over a week away from bands like RJD2/Icebird, the New Bomb Turks, Heartless Bastards, Cloud Nothings and others, plus films like never-before-seen Jim Jarmusch shorts featuring Tom Waits, 4192: The Crowning of the Hit King and Eric Mahoney’s North Dixie Drive.
So, in anticipation, we’re giving away two tickets to the Friday, Oct. 7 New Bomb Turks / Heartless Bastards / Cloud Nothings / R.Ring (featuring Kelley Deal) show at Skully’s and two film tickets to the Ohio Doc Double Feature, The Last Truck: The Closing of a GM Plant shown with North Dixie Drive (Saturday, Oct. 8 at 3:55pm). Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject OFMF by next Wednesday (10/5).
