Darkred / Pirate Love / The Ashleys / St. James & the Apostles

Saturday, March 31 / 8pm doors, 9pm music / $8
Darkred (Noise rock)
Pirate Love (Rock n roll)
The Ashleys (Rock)
St. James & the Apostles (Progressive blues/Psychedelic soul)

Darkred continues the Paik-style experimentalism, albeit stripped-down. The dense soundscape and the ferocity at which it’s played amazes, particularly considering it’s only two people armed with a guitar sent through pedals and a drum kit.

The band’s basic sound is difficult to describe, but it’s different from anything you’ll likely hear now. It’s alternative, in the true sense. But instead of being an alternative to good, the duo nods its mojo at some of the greatest noise-rock innovators, including Sonic Youth, Jesus and the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine.” [Metro Times]

Pirate Love: Dirty, filthy, greasy Detroit Rock n Roll.

The Ashleys: “I think a measured amount of recklessness is a necessity for wellness, – both mental and physical.

Sweeping, sublime works of beauty and grace certainly have their place, and we all gnosh, now and again, on the guilty pleasures of pristine, sun-soaked patchworks of pretty, poppy, pirouets. But, I feel imbalanced if I go very long without being properly shaken up. Times like those: I go to Detroit duo, the Ashleys – tightly wound rhythms and maelstrom guitars, churned out in rubbery, blues-inflected roars and fuzzed out vocals blurting and howling out monosyllabic taunts. Essentially: the essence of what many perceive as “garage rock…” Whether that’s a lingering ghost or a hot-button topic in this town is for another day’s debate…” [Deep Cutz]

St. James & The Apostles​ got together in 2010 when guitarist​ Jamie Mahon, parting ways with his former band, enlisted his 2 younger cousins;​ Mike Kiker​ on organ & Jeff Castner​ on drums. They self-produced their first 2 LPs; ‘Baphomet’ (2012) & ‘Via Dolorosa’ (2014) using a back-to-basics approach. After a considerable amount of touring, they hooked up with producer Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo (Lauryn Hill, Fugees, Billy Joel, Urge Overkill) for their 3rd album ‘White Devil’, released October 14th, 2016.

Growing up he listened to Rock &Roll until the age of 12, when he crossed over to R&B. By the age of 16 he was visiting Disco clubs on a regular basis. In the process, he got hooked on the Detroit R&B DJ’s of that era, such as Tiger Dan, Marvelous Marv, and The Electrifying Mojo. Working his way up from shop bars and roller rinks, the 80’s turned into a pivotal point in his career. Disco had faded into the newest craze, House Music. Listening to DJ’s like Duane Bradley, Barry Michaelton Grant, Ken Collier, and Jeff “The Wizard” Mills. In 1986, Mr. Woodward was the first DJ north of Detroit to play House Music at the old Blackstone’s. 1988 he worked at Buy-Rite Music where he was immersed into Detroit’s House and Techno scene. By 1992 Jeffrey made the move to Detroit and continued his passion for House and Techno. In 1996 he started The Detroit Housing Commission and became a co-resident at the legendary Club 246 when he first started playing U.K. Garage. By ’98 he brought UKG to Lush Lounge in Hamtramck, pulling massive crowds and packing the dance floor with this new sound, and started working at Melodies and Memories in Eastpointe. While hustling records there, he met DJ CDX who introduced him to Detroit’s underground rave scene with the DubTech Crew. For the next 3 years, his skills and passion for his art, led him to gigs playing with the likes of DJ Pierre, Roy Davis Jr.,Terrence Parker, Paul Johnson and Frankie Bones and has cemented his reputation as a true Detroit legend and the status of The Don of UKG.
