FACEBOOK EVENT: http://www.facebook.com/events/169598496483223
 This is the launch party for a new Louisville-based web publication  called Distonal (from the creative forces that brought you the recently  retired Decibel Tolls). In the words of the head honcho himself, Michael  Powell…Distonal is an online magazine spread across an  anchored open source WordPress home and an accompanying Tumblr that will  cover… well, whatever I feel like writing about. It’s the opposite of  The Decibel Tolls in that regard, and it’s hard to say what will end up  there, which excites me. The thread that binds everything, though, will  be thoughtful and attitude-laden writing from myself and others (to be  announced) that reaches toward broader universal topics, as well as  articles that retain a strong commitment to the happenings of my native  Louisville. I’ll still be reviewing records and photographing shows, but  I may also drop some secret Bloggins curry recipes, March Madness  picks, gastropub critiques, absurd manifestos, and my thoughts on the  body politic. Distonal promises to be fluid and freeform, while  brandishing a distinct voice all the while. It should go live sometime  in late February, or early March at the latest. It’ll be a fun ride, and  I hope you’ll follow me over there. For now, like that shit on facebook… http://www.facebook.com/ distonal Find out more about Cropped Out & The Other Side of Life below…http:// croppedoutmusic.comhttp:// croppedout.tumblr.comhttp:// othersideoflife.wordpress.c om

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2012. Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life Present:
WHIPS/CHAINS (first show // ft. members of Black God, Coliseum, Xerxes)
WHIPS/CHAINS is a band from Louisville, Kentucky. WHIPS/CHAINS plays loud, slow, quiet, fast, noisy, precise, angry, sludgy, blasting, down-tuned, punk, hardcore. WHIPS/CHAINS is Will Allard (Xerxes), Ben Sears (Black God), and Ryan Patterson (Black God, Coliseum).
ROYAL BATHS (from San Francisco // on Woodsist/Kanine)
ROYAL BATHS “has its obvious influences- The Velvet Underground and Spacemen 3- but to define them by these comparisons would be to vastly oversimplify their sound. Songwriters Jeremy Cox and Jigmae Baer draw from psychedelic soundscapes; dark, personal, and esoteric subject matter; and a bit of punk’s apathetic humor and exigency. They conjure up haunting, reverb-heavy hymns to the degenerate and the broken” (Emily Epstein, Thrasher). ROYAL BATHS “take cues from Neil Young’s lightning-struck guitar sermons and the Velvet Underground’s creeping paranoia” (Pitchfork). Recording on whatever cheap four or single-track cassette recorder they could find, they eventually borrowed a Tascam 388 to make their first 7″. Their new album Better Luck Next Life is set to be released by Kanine Records on February 7, 2012.
GANGLY YOUTH (from Louisville, KY)
GANGLY YOUTH, is a five-piece band from Louisville, Kentucky. Led by Dan Davis along with Brent Mills, Daniel Tilford, Ashley Urjil-Mills, and Nate Woodard, the band writes jangly, fuzzy, reverb-soaked “pop” songs. Pulling from a wide array of influences and a very small amount of technical skill, GANGLY YOUTH applies a shared punk mentality and manages to make songs that are refreshing and new, yet familiar all the same.

DOORS AT SEVEN.
FIVE BUCKS.
