The Counter Elites / Girl Fight / Alouette / Ex-American
July 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm$5
Detroit’s The Counter Elites have been described as if ‘Crass and the Descendents had babies’ – though their raucous and energetic 2-man sound is more appropriately musically all-over-the-place, hearkening to a variety of genres from 70s- & 80s-style punk and new wave to Sabbath-style riff rock with hints of Minutemen, Devo, Dead Kennedys, NoMeansNo, and Zappa-esque flourishes. Girl Fight is an energetic feminist punk duo influenced by the riot grrrl movement of the early 90s. With garage simplicity, the band draws their sound from acts such as Bikini Kill, The Stooges, The Cramps and Mudhoney. Alouette [a-loo-wet] : antisocial trash-noize duo // endless + d.b. // CHICAGO. Ex American is Courtney Spivak, with James Donovan, both Michigan natives. Ex American’s experimental electronic music draws on multiple musical influences to integrate the avant garde with the aesthetics of 80/90’s new wave, techno and pop.
