Car Seat Headrest, moniker used by musician and songwriter Will Toledo, expertly crafts moody and introspective lo-fi pop tunes that are melodic but structurally ambitious at the same time. Toledo and his band are gracing the Club Congress stage for the first time, and it will surely be a night to remember–one filled with nostalgic lo-fi noise that will make you forget for a second that we’re indeed in the 21st century.
What happens when members of some of Tucson’s favorite local bands (Y la Orkesta, Taraf de Tucson, Two-Door Hatchback, the Awkward Moments) write music for classically-trained musicians? That’s ChamberLab, an alt-classical concert series bringing new concert music to different audiences, in strange venues, and from unlikely sources. We are so excited to be hosting their next show!
Darlingside’s wide-open arrangements are marked by the skillful vocal interplay of the four singers. When bassist Dave Senft, guitarist Don Mitchell, violinist Auyon Mukharji, and cellist Harris Paseltiner gather around a single microphone, they splash their melodies with a sunny melancholy that brings their lyrics to vibrant life. Subtle musical shadings take cues from 60s folk, chamber pop, bluegrass, classical music, and modern indie rock. Club Congress is in for a treat!
The Record Company write and play raw, sincere rock’n roll. Inspired by the rough honesty of their heroes—bluesmen like John Lee Hooker, early punk bands like The Stooges, and rock greats like The Rolling Stones—their sound incorporates slide guitar, distorted bass, a garage-sale Ludwig drum kit and the heartland-hued voice of Chris Vos, who grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm.
Shana Falana is coming to club congress, supporting the release of her new, dark n dreamy album, Here Comes the Wave. Supporting her are local shoegaze kingpins Mute Swan and psych wizards The Night Collectors. See ya there, kiddos!
Siberian surf rock legends Red Elvises are coming to Club Congress! Catch the Soviet-influenced madness on Wednesday, November 16th. See you there!
Retro Game Show Night is hosted by Tempest DuJour, the “Delicate Flower of the Desert.” She is Tucson’s (and possibly Arizona’s) largest drag queen and has a blazing wit that’s just as big as she is. At RGSN, we play vintage television game shows with special “celebrity” guests and real contestants from the audience. These are definitely not your grandma’s game shows!
Strike Accord Music is a locally owned business specializing in recording, writing, and producing music as well as giving lessons/instruction on drums and other instruments. Their staff has been a part of the Tucson music community for 14 years and now they are showcasing their favorite Tucson talent with a compilation record release show! We can’t wait!
Guitar-taming, torch-singing, pop-noir heroine, Gemma Ray, will be coming to the Club Congress stage all the way from Berlin! Hope you’ll join her!
Straight-to-Tape Records is a local tape label owned and operated by Richard Young of psychedelic outfit Wight Lhite. The label is releasing it’s very first compilation, featuring some of the best noise and rock artists in town (The Resonars and The Myrrors to name a few…) and we’re throwing a party to celebrate! The lineup features Golden Boots, who’s live appearances are few and far between, Eric Schlappi and Deschtuco – all local, all awesome! Come on down for a killer night!
Rock 102.1 KFMA, Tucson’s favorite modern rock radio station, is taking over Club Congress and throwing the best Christmas party in town featuring Barns Courtney, DREAMERS, and last but CERTAINLY not least, STRFKR!! Come on down for this one of a kind, yuletide event!
For almost as long as they’ve been married (26 years) Brett and Rennie have written songs together (Brett, music; Rennie, words). Their finished work is never fully one or the other’s, but lives in unseen space between them. We are so excited that they are bringing their creations to Club Congress! Can’t wait to see you there!
