SWEET KNIVES (Big Neck Records, Red Lounge Records)
Memphis, TN darkwave synth punk for the garage-rock set! This is a reboot of legendary synth outfit LOST SOUNDS, minus Jay Reatard (RIP) of course. Like many greats, Lost Sounds were a band with two central songwriting figures, Alicja Trout and Jay Reatard. The group disbanded in 2005 with all members continuing music in some capacity. Sweet Knives wisely sticks to Lost Sounds songs penned by Alicja Trout as well as writing and recording new songs under the new name. The debut S/T LP will be available at the show! Fantastic synth punk with plenty of hooks to keep you coming back for more! Members of The Clears, Lover, River City Tanlines and more! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
For fans of: The Screamers, Urinals, Units, Suicide, Nervous Gender.
CAVE CURSE (Kind Turkey Records, FDH Records, P. Trash Records)
Madison synth punk group featuring members of The Hussy, Fire Heads, Poney, No Hoax, And Illusions, ETC. This will be the first Cave Curse show featuring the new 4-piece lineup of Bobby Hussy (Synths, Vocals), Ben Brooks (Drums), Tyler Spatz (Bass) and Emili Earhart (Synths & Noises). The previous lineup was a two-piece with quite a different feel. Crushing synth tones, pulsing rhythms and over the top gothy vocals.
For fans of: Digital Leather, Tuxedomoon, Lost Sounds.
Solid Freex are Trin Tran & Sons! Total Punx from Madison, WI. Angular skate punk with wild and sometimes complex, sometimes simple songs.
Very out there. Very fun.

Saturday, October 14 - Mickey's Tavern - FREE - 10 PM

Madison Boy Band. Speed freak quartet! Playing hits from the upcoming S/T Fire Heads LP and the new 7" coming out via Italy's Goodbye Boozy Records at this show!
The band formed half a decade ago as "Fire Retarded" and was more of a straight garage rock group before turning quite a bit more jagged and angular. New Name. Newish Sound.
The new record is noisier, faster and snottier than ever!
For fans of: Motorhead, The Coachwhips, The Stooges, Sheer Mag, A Giant Dog, The Reatards.
BLAHA (Kind Turkey Records, Slovenly)
Minneapolis garage-punkers with hints of surf sprinkled in! Features Mike Blaha of THE BLIND SHAKE fame filled out by some other familiar Minneapolis faces!
Stomping, direct and extremely powerful! Hot off a European tour!
Kind Turkey was lucky to release the debut cassette (which sold out immediately) earlier this year, and we are proud to release a brand new limited edition cassette at this show in celebration of Turkeyfest 8! Pick one up quick or they'll be gone like last time!
For fans of The Blind Shake, Thee Oh Sees, Ex-Cult, Rocket From The Crypt

THE SMELLS (Rare Plant)
Absolutely stellar slacker punk rock n roll from Madison. Debut self-produced album, "Manure Spreader" is one of our favorite releases of 2017!
Excellent songwriting sometimes obscured (in a good way) by atonal and meandering guitar that makes this a very special, unique and surprising Madison act.
For fans of The Replacements, Pavement, Guided by Voices, The Jesus Lizard.
PLUS! True American Hero G. GORDON GRITTY from Boston will be MCing/Introducing bands EVERY NIGHT!
Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.
