MAMA – http://mamamamamama.bandcamp.com/

BIO: Power Pop and Punk Rock music for those living dangerously in the modern age.Straight from the backstreets of Chicago, MAMA combines high-energy power pop, punk rock, and r&b with art-damaged attitude and story-telling lyrics to create a new kind of rock and roll monster. Combining wailing guitars, classic songwriting, and unrelenting rhythms, MAMA spits in the face of any trend and breaks all the rules –then puts it all back together with a kiss. With two EPs under their belt, including the acclaimed Speed TrapEP, MAMA is excited to releasea new double 7-inch EP this winter, Night Shoot,on Automatic Recordings.Designedto blow your stereo to smithereens, Night Shootblends the darkness of a late-night back alley scuffle with the blinding light of raw freedom.There is no other record that sounds like this EP, and there is no other band quite like MAMA.

This show is best explained via our friends at the Hi-Tone in Memphis. I’m too excited about it to write an accurate description. Here you go:

A Night of pure Rock & Roll excitement featuring MOJAVE LORDS, DiNOLA, and RANCHO DE LA LUNATICS. All of these bands have recorded albums at RANCHO DE LA LUNA recording studio in JOSHUA TREE, California, where QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ARCTIC MONKEYS, UNKLE, MASTERS OF REALITY, MARK LANEGAN, THE DESERT SESSIONS, DANIEL LANOIS, BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, AFGHAN WHIGS, FOO FIGHTERS, EARTH, and many others have recorded some of their best music.

DiNOLA
New Orleans’ premier Rock & Roll band. DiNOLA recorded their debut album in Joshua Tree with DAVID CATCHING at RANCHO DE LA LUNA. From the swamp to the desert, this band delivers high-energy music with beautiful vocals and songs that will floor you with incredible melodies and lyrics.
DiNOLA’s alter-ego, PINK SLIP, play all sorts of fantastic music in parades atop their own PINK SLIP float During Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Expect a little PINK SLIP in these shows!

MOJAVE LORDS
Joshua Tree’s own MOJAVE LORDS is the brainchild of RANCHO DE LA LUNA’S Head Honcho DAVID CATCHING (EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, earthlings?, MASTERS OF REALITY, DESERT SESSIONS, SMITH AND PYLE, etc.) and his brilliant neighbour BINGO RICHEY (HOLY MODAL ROUNDERS, FREAK MOUNTAIN RAMBLERS, BINGO’S DREAM BAND, etc.)
With BARRETT MARTIN (SCREAMING TREES, TUATARA, WALKING PAPERS, MAD SEASON, SKIN YARD etc.) and BRIAN “BOC” O’CONNOR (EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, THE DESERT SESSIONS, COUNTRY BUGS) chipping in MOJAVE LORDS are taking Hard Rock into the next phase with cutting lyrics and oh so sexy crooning. Their stunning debut album, UNFUCKWITHABLE, was recorded in a two week period at RANCHO DE LA LUNA by BINGO and DAVID CATCHING. .BARRETT MARTIN and DAVID CATCHING first played together on the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE groundbreaking album, RATED R, and continue with MOJAVE LORDS.

9pm

LINEUP:

Timmy’s Organism – Timmy’s Organism began in the late 2000s as the solo project of Timmy Vulgar, longtime frontman of a string of Detroit punk bands including the Epileptix, Clone Defects, and Human Eye. Vulgar was experimenting at home with four-track recording, using borrowed synthesizers to create ambient percussion for his extremely skewed Beefheartian approach to pop music. The first releases as Timmy’s Organism came in the form of a string of 7″ singles, including a self-titled double 7″ on Sacred Bones. By 2009, Vulgar had brought in bassist Jeff Fournier and drummer Colin Sick to back him up, and Timmy’s Organism expanded into a touring three-piece, existing in tandem with Vulgar’s other highly active vehicle, Human Eye. More 7″s followed, the band leaning toward slightly comedic punk with song titles like “I’m a Nice Guy Now” and “Cold Pizza.” The band released its first album, Rise of the Green Gorilla, on Sacred Bones in 2010 and followed in 2012 with Raw Sewage Roq on In the Red Records.

THING – Rich Crook’s ( LOVER! and Lost Sounds) new project. Featuring local hero, Ryan Sweeney, on the drums!!

The Screwsmen – Jem will not be on the drums this time, but the band stilll rules. Once again, if you like The Oblivians you’ll love this band.
