Fond Object Backyard Show – Danny Kroha (The Gories) w/ Jake Xerxes Fussel – August 13th 2015 7pm

Danny Kroha is a Detroit native who has played raw and primitive rock n roll music for about thirty years. Danny Kroha has so far played with The Gories, Rocket 455, Demolition Doll Rods, The Readies, and The Darleans. Danny Kroha is alive and well and continues to make records.

Danny and Third Man Records on his new album, Angels Watching Over Me:

“I was very reluctant to put this stuff out because there’s a ton of rootsy cornballs out there doing this kind of stuff and all of them play guitar way better than me. But I think I have something here that doesn’t really sound like anything else. The numbers that bounce really bounce. The numbers that drone really drone. I’m excited about this.” – Danny Kroha

We are too! The founding member of THE GORIES tried his hand at the banjo, dulcimer, diddley bow, washtub bass, jug, and mouth organ for his first release under his own name, Angels Watching Over Me, and the result is a distinct step forward for gospel and folk as genres. Kroha has consistently pushed himself to reinvention, and has influenced countless imitators and poseurs along the way. His guitar work with Rocket 455 is the most quintessentially “Detroit” rock and roll this side of the MC5. Angels Watching Over Me was recorded in a 100-year-old, vacant house in Detroit, and features songs popularized by the likes of Son House, I.D. Stamper, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Brother Will Hairston. This is a decidedly different Danny Kroha than we’ve seen in his past projects with Demolition Doll Rods and Danny and the Darleans, and we have to say… we like him. With Angels Watching Over Me, he firmly establishes himself as one of the pre-eminent practitioners of a genre we hold so dear.

The record will be available for pre-order mid-January with an official release date of January 27th. Check out a sneak peak of the song “Run Little Children,” the only Kroha original on the record, below.

“I was sitting by a pond in a park in Rochester, New York, playing my diddley bow, and this one came to me. Son House lived in that town for some years; I like to think he was smiling on me.” – Danny Kroha

Border Radio w/ Julie Christensen + Stone Cupid, Yours Truly, Michele, & True Detective Season Finale at Fond Object 08/09/2015!

border radio

Since this season of True Detective is obviously the greatest thing to ever air on cable television, we are having a big ol’ she-bang for the season finale!

First up is Yours Truly, Michele which features former member of Sympathy for the Record Industry band The Kirby Grips, Michele Kappel-Stone doing an intimate solo set. Be sure to get there early and give Michele some love!

After Michele is the season two finale of True Detective. Well, last week was a little bit better since at least SOMETHING happened. I guess no matter what, after Sunday this season will be over. Bye forever!

Next up, Fond Object is very proud to present our dear friend Julie Christensen and her band Stone Cupid! We are very excited to have Julie and her band play a few songs for you in between True Detective and our main feature of the night, BORDER RADIO!

Julie Christensen is an American singer, born in Iowa and currently resides right here in East Nashville!. She has worked with musicians including Leonard Cohen, Todd Rundgren, Robben Ford, Iggy Pop, Public Image Limited, Van Dyke Parks, John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Steve Wynn and k.d. lang.

From 1983 to 1987 Christensen was a member of The Divine Horsemen with her former husband Chris D who is also the star of tonight’s feature, BORDER RADIO!

Finally, after Julie C and Stone Cupid leave the stage, we will be showing Allison Anders, Dean Lent and Kurt Voss’ indie classic, BORDER RADIO!

Before carving out a niche as one of nineties’ American cinema’s most distinct voices, Allison Anders made her debut, alongside co-directors and fellow UCLA film-school students, Kurt Voss and Dean Lent, with 1987’s Border Radio. A low-key, semi-improvised post-punk diary that took four years to complete, Border Radio features legendary rocker Chris D., of the Flesh Eaters and The Divine Horsemen, as a singer/songwriter who has stolen loot from a club and gone missing, leaving his wife (Luanna Anders), a no-nonsense rock journalist, to track him down with the help of his friends (John Doe of the band X; Chris Shearer).

Dave Alvin created an eclectic and memorable score for the film (now out of print, sadly), with players culled from friends and colleagues from X, Los Lobos, The Blasters and other local heroes.

We got a big night of amazing stuff for y’all, so come early and stay late!
