12/14: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds film 'One More Time With Feeling' (Newport KY)

When the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 3D film, One More Time With Feeling (about the making of the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds LP Skeleton Tree) was released on September 8th,  it was screened in 850 theaters worldwide but not in a single theater in Kentucky.

But the folks at Everybody's RecordsBlack Plastic records (both in Cincinnati) have set out to change that.
Working with the site TUGG, they hope to screen One More Time With Feeling Wednesday, December 14, at 7:30pm at AMC Newport On The Levee 20.  TUGG works like a crowd funding site, for just screening films. Anyone can set up a TUGG account for a specific film, and if they sell enough advanced tickets the show moves ahead as planned. If the goal is not reached the ticket sales are refunded to purchasers.

The Newport event only has a little more to go to ensure the screening, with only 75 tickets total needed by Dec. 7th it seems likely, but if you are interested don't wait! Grab your tickets now here. All Ages. $12. 12/14 7:30PM.

The Winger Brothers will be playing at Butchertown Grocery on Thanksgiving Eve at 9pm. A turkey dinner at Butchertown Grocery will probably cost you a whole month's rent, but you better believe the music will be just right.

Review: Anagnorisis 'Peripeteia' LP


Quite possibly one of the most solid offerings in Black Metal to date, and most likely the  most important offering this year for the genre, Louisville's Anagnorisis' 7th release, Peripeteia, hits the shelves on Thursday (Nov. 3rd. Digital release was October 21st). Peripeteia cuts deep unlike most in the Black Metal genre (that typically go for surface cuts of gross and fictional brutality) but with truly brutal introspectives (seemingly an autobiography of vocalist Zachary Kerr) Peripeteia tells a true tale of a life boxed in from birth.

Lyrics like "If this is the sum of it all, then the moments leading me here have led me astray. That which is crying should also be dead As peace is a distant lullaby for the fragile and the weak. Taught to hate myself, through hating you. Lessons in humility by watching you" on Disgust & Remorse, Pt II only cut up the listener to line up the full body blow ending "You've fucked my life for far too long. Let me live my own regret."

The album is spliced with recordings of  Kerr's own childhood and layered sounds to solidify the theme of life in lost depression, far from the obligatory double bass drum onslaught typically found on releases in the genre, and truly brutal lyrics that kick harder than a metaphysical beast, such as "No longer claiming ruined flesh, just wasted time in wasted skin. Wasted namesake to pass mental disease. Afraid to exist. So exhausted from hiding."



Anagnorisis' Peripeteia release show is Thursday at Haymarket Whiskey Bar ( $10. 21+) and kicks off a 15 date US tour. Tour Info Here.  Double LP can be ordered here.
