Opening Acts: Tripp Lullaby & Blank Spell
July 13th @ 8:00 PM
Doors open @ 7:00 PM
Deerhoof: Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play guitars. But what is Deerhoof really? Hell if we know. Pitchfork went so far as to label Deerhoof as "the best band in the world.” From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.
Tripp Lullaby: Celebrating thirty years since their 1989 formation, Tripp Lullaby re-unites for a celebration in the land they called home - three decades after the start of their D.I.Y., all ages punk shows at Dennis’ Carleton Hall and the West Dennis Community Center that forwarded the idea of the youth gathering and supporting or performing live original music, in whatever way it spoke to them. In the hallowed words of DIY Punk pioneers The Desperate Bicycles: ”it was easy, it was cheap – go and do it!" Those who were there share many great (albeit foggy) memories of bands that shared the bills in that era from Cape Cod luminaries such as House Of Whipcord, The Incredible Casuals, Form Alex or The Freeze, to travelers from farther off places like The Straw Dogs, Green Magnet School or Green Day.
Tripp Lullaby’s members have gone on to other lands, other bands, world tours and all that sort of thing you might expect, and so have the people who attended those shows. Here’s hoping that they can come back to Cape for the weekend and hang. Beer in the lobby this time!
Blank Spell: Equal parts spastic and ghostly, BLANK SPELL exists somewhere between what people like to call dark punk, post punk and everyone’s favorite misnomer, death rock.
