At long last, BAD HISTORY MONTH (Sean of FAT HISTORY MONTH – got it?) wraps up his immense summer trek across the country tonight in our very own city at Charlie’s. Hey, you know what they say about that hometown show – gotta show him some love and come out. He’s joined by tour-mates, split-mates, and Bloomington’s very own DUST FROM 1000 YEARS. These two guys put out a somewhat morbid yet immensely rewarding split, “Famous Cigarettes,” on Exploding in Sound at the start of the summer. While both artists share a dour, dimly lit interpretation of traditional folk rock, BHM’s side favors the more experimental, Microphones-influenced end of the spectrum, whereas Dust sounds something like a more blunt, early-period Neil Young. The two styles compliment each other well, and it doesn’t hurt that both share a penchant for consistently thought-provoking, hard-hitting, and sometimes humorously frank lyricism. See all of this in action tonight.
They’ll be joined by grungy Exploding in Sound labelmates KAL MARKS and JP synth pop maestro THE CRATERS – two local acts that fill out the bill nicely with some enticing stylistic variety. Seriously, there’s something in here for everybody; don’t miss out.
