Guitar is Dead

Psych Rock, Punk, Experimental Jazz, Art Rock from New Orleans LA

Guitarist Tristan Gianola (Wayne Horvitz, Mike Dillon) leads his trio GUITAR IS DEAD in energetic performances of his own breed of shredding loud-jazz, punk, metal and heavy rock. Described as “flagrantly virtuosic” (Dave Segal, The Stranger), Gianola wields his guitar with the energy of a young rock n’ roller who just picked up their first axe…and is ready to smash it into pieces. His musical instincts are embellished with unpredictable imagination as an improviser, composer and band leader. Backed by Moses Eder (drums) and Maxwell Boecker (bass), Gianola pushes himself to the edge of his musicianship, risking admirable precision for raw intensity. Guiding him are the influential guitar stylings of John Mclaughlin, Sonny Sharrok, Marc Ribot, Even Hermansen, Bill Frisell, Van Halen, Frank Zappa and many more.

Venture Boi

Dream Pop from Birmingham AL

Venture Boi is a bedroom dream pop project, spearheaded by Birmingham music scene veteran Matt Sanderlin. The band performs as a quartet - with Dillon Ellis on bass, Cameron Riddle on guitar, and Erik Buck on drums - and casts a hazy, colorful spell on their audience like a mid-June daydream. Channeling diverse influences like Beach House and Childish Gambino, Venture Boi strikes the perfect balance between classic sounds and new ideas. See Venture Boi on their upcoming fall tour, and hear their single “Strange Ecstasy” on Spotify and Apple Music.
