A Toast To You: Cathy's Thank-You Party
This is Cathy's last night at High Noon, and she wants to celebrate the community that has supported her all these years. Some of her favorite local bands will be performing along with a special edition of Rockstar Gomeroke featuring an all-star cast of local musicians.
Bereft
Bereft
What began as a steadfast expression of the human condition, moves forward with momentum for Madison, WI’s atmospheric doom metal band, Bereft. Founded by Zach Johnson and Alex Linden in 2011, the band is rounded out by Cade Gentry on bass and Patrick Hotlen on drums. Bereft weave elements of doom with black metal and post-metal into exhaustive, dynamic songs. Lyrically, they draw from their views on religion, politics and social injustice. It is in this spirit that they creates their own style of powerful metal, unbound to any genre and fully conscious of the impression.

Bereft released their first demo in 2013 and immediately set out playing shows throughout the Midwest. The following year, they recorded their debut EP, Lost Ages, for War Crime/Silent Pendulum Recordings. CVLT Nation cited that the album “possesses a tendency to allow the racing blasts to carry them into more post-rock passages or a beefy, sludge-ridden pace.”

Shows and tours with Agalloch, Gloom, Downfall of Gaia and North kept the band busy for most of 2015. The band is currently hammering out new material for their forthcoming worldwide release on Prosthetic Records, set for a tentative Spring, 2016 release.
The Hussy
The Hussy
Madison, Wisconsin’s psych-punk duo The Hussy return with GALORE (Southpaw Records), their first full length since 2013’s critically acclaimed Pagan Hiss! Last year’s split 12” with Digital Leather featured a darker, denser side of The Hussy. On the split, Shawn Foree (Digital Leather, TIT) intricately tangled synthesizers into The Hussy’s signature lo-fi scuzzpop that fans had come to expect. The result was a unique mini-album that stirred the band into new audio territory. GALORE takes things in a slightly different direction…almost entirely abandoning keyboards for the sonic textures of various guitars, amplifiers, effect pedals, violin, lap steel and percussive elements. The underlying sonics may have morphed, but the hooks and guy/girl interplay are immaculately omnipresent…this may be the Hussy’s catchiest and popiest record to date! Recorded onto ¼” tape with a Tascam 388 by Bobby Hussy in the band’s practice space, the DIY lo-fi aesthetic is still fully baked into it all. GALORE’s polished but slightly perforated sound hints at the slew of previous material The Hussy have released, while significantly stepping things up through a richer, more expansive sound palette. This is the first Hussy LP with bass guitar added to the entire record, marking it as somewhat of a turning point for the band. GALORE showcases The Hussy at their creative peak, crafting concise pop gems that evolve and devolve after every listen while always definitively being The Hussy. The years the band has spent touring, recording and honing their seemingly telepathic connection have amounted to a vast and varied catalogue rivaling even the most prolific artists of the current garage/punk/whatever underground. Last year saw the band opening and backing the masked madman NOBUNNY himself on tours through North America, Australia and New Zealand. The Hussy also toured with The Faint in 2014, and they have played shows with The Reigning Sound, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, King Khan and BBQ, Local H, White Fence, Black Lips, Nots, Blind Shake, Digital Leather, Kadavar, Useless Eaters and too many others to name. The Hussy most recently the Midwest, East Coast and Southern United States in June 2015 and Europe followed in August 2015.
