Speakertree Presents: THE WLDLFE

Speakertree Presents: 

THE WLDLFE + OCEANIC + A N X

The Wldlfe are a band out of Indianapolis, IN dedicated to bringing the new age of pop music. They released their debut EP, titled "New", in March of 2016. It was featured on Noisetrades "New and Notable" list, and also rose to the top page of the Pop "Most Downloaded" list on Noisetrade in a few days. They followed up this EP with a single ("Text Me?") in Fall 2016, and a second EP (titled "ILY") in February of 2017. 

As young souls, The Wldlfe want to bring pop music a more honest quality by telling stories through their lyrics while keeping catchy melodies in the fold. 

This group is a band to be looking out for as they begin their ascent to the top of the pop music mountain.

Second Annual Miriam's Market

Miriam's Market is a vendor festival featuring local artisan vendors, local businesses and brands. This is a fundraiser event for the Mariam's House. We'll have a table set up at the event slingin' some wax for a cause. Come on by! 

Miriam's House Bio: Miriam's House is designed to end homelessness for women and families by providing them with stability and the skills to succeed in permanent housing. 
All of the programs and services offered at Miriam’s House are based on the Housing First model, rooted in the belief that ending a client's homelessness quickly and providing for her most basic needs will empower her to achieve goals in other areas including mental health, substance use, money management and parenting. Miriam's House staff provides intensive case management and works in partnership with each client to build upon her strengths and resiliency. Miriam’s House coordinates referrals to therapists, mental health support workers, recovery services, job coaches, and social workers to ensure that ongoing, comprehensive services are available to clients even after they complete their program at Miriam's House.

Speakertree First Friday: You're Jovian, TLVS!

Featured Artist: Jacob Laverty - Hand Drawn Poster Artwork

Jacob will have prints available for purchase. 

You're Jovian hazard a vibe reminiscent of something The Cure might have released in between "Seventeen Seconds" and "Head On The Door"—that is, if Thurston Moore had stepped back in time to team up with Robert Smith. (Whurk)

TLVS - This art-rock trio has become a favorite of Lynchburg’s thriving musical scene thanks to their ambient instrumentals that leave their performances feeling more like flowing art than traditional rock music. The ever-changing textural beauty lends itself to some rewarding and cathartic listening experiences. (RVA Mag)

 

Doors 7pm, music shortly after, show concludes at 10pm.

 

Cover charge of $3 - cash preferred but cards are accepted.

We're stoked to be participating and bringing some of these titles to LYH.

Sound Of Ceres And Advance Base With TLVS

Sound Of Ceres And Advance Base With TLVS

DOORS OPEN AT 7:30 P.M.
MUSIC HAPPENS AT 8:15 P.M.
CASH BAR AVAILABLE DURING THE SHOW

Join us for an evening of atmospheric electronica with Sound of Ceres, Advance Base, and TLVS.

About the Bands:

SOUND OF CERES (Joyful Noise)

There is no one true self. With every choice you make, your story changes. Between the potential and the actual, there exist an infinite number of variations on who you have been.

In concert, The Twin (out now on Joyful Noise) evolves and changes nightly; no two versions of this immersive audio-visual experience are alike. Lasers and fiber optics pierce the darkness and smoke, creating a web of ever-changing constellations. Stars, circles, and double-helixes dance around the band, bouncing off reflective costumes and outstretched hands. Responding fluidly to each unique environment where they perform, Sound of Ceres transport the audience into the heart of the great cosmos via a mystifying display of lights and effects, coupled with hypnotizing sound.

Just as the various members of Sound of Ceres combine ideas and energies to fashion their magical world, everything they create together – words and music, video, live performance art – interlocks to tell the whole story. And when all the elements align, The Twin unlocks a universe of endless possibilities and infinite outcomes. You'll never experience it the same way twice.

ADVANCE BASE (Orindal)

Owen Ashworth used to release his lo-fi keyboard pop under the name Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, but these days he calls it Advance Base.

Walking the line between electronic music & traditional singer/songwriter forms, Ashworth writes minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed songs of longing & regret. His conversational, baritone vocals sing stories of hard-luck Midwesterners & their demons amid swirls of electric pianos, Omnichords, drum machines & samples.

Advance Base's second album, Nephew in the Wild, was named #1 Indie Pop album of 2015 by PopMatters.

TLVS (Harding Street Assembly Lab)

Yes, it's an acronym ("The Late Virginia Summers").
No, the band won't expound on what their moniker may reference.

Having survived a handful of lineup changes, TLVS is currently a three piece working with a palette of guitars / drums / keys. Sonically, the group plays off both the shoegazing bliss of the 90's & the ambient texture of 21st century post rock.

"It's avant garde without needing a decryption"
- INDY Weekly

"TLVS is an ambient cosmic ride, touring all the planets and stars and leaving nothing out. You feel all the universe move around you as you're pulled in."
- Get Off The Coast

9:00 AM09:00

Record Store Day

Record Store Day is a day where Indie Record Stores are celebrated. The way this is done is by large name artists releasing Recod Store Day releases on vinyl that are only available in limited quanities and ONLY through participated Indie Record Stores like yours truly, Speakertree. 

Most of these releases stay hush hush until the date gets closer. Plan to be at the shop right when we open that morning at 9am because the pickings are slim but the finds will be great. 

This is the communities time to show their love and support for their local indie record shop. We'd love to see you there.

http://www.recordstoreday.com/

The shop will only be open from 9AM-2PM because we will have a Pop-Up shop at Lynchstock Music Festival that day in Riverfront Park in Downtown Lynchburg.
