FROZEN SOUL • SANGUISUABOGG

Live at Club Dada in Dallas on November 6th – FROZEN SOUL’s brand of straightforward, in-your-face death metal is a gasp of fresh air in a genre that’s stretched the very limits of technicality. Fully formed in 2018, the quintet has rapidly made a name for itself and churned the underground with a sound that evokes the old school sound of bands like Obituary, Mortician, and Bolt Thrower. That reverence for death metal’s roots was apparent from Frozen Soul’s initial four-song Encased in Ice demo, which includes a cover of Mortician’s “Witch’s Coven” and was released in early 2019 on California’s Maggot Stomp Records. FROZEN SOUL entered the studio in early March 2020 to record its first full-length with former guitarist Daniel Schmuck handling production and mixing duties. Crypt of Ice is nothing short of a breath of very fresh and very cold air on death metal’s fiery landscape. From re-recorded demo tracks including the call-to-arms of “Encased in Ice” and the savage frost blister of “Wraith of Death” to the brutal, pummeling, and momentous guitar churn of “Arctic Stranglehold,” FROZEN SOUL have delivered a record that embraces the genre’s past while pushing death metal forward with frigid force.

SKATING POLLY • KTJ & Carly

There’s a difficult to describe, yet timeless quality to certain songs that transcends genre or era. It’s something that you can’t fake or contrive and it’s what lies at the core of Skating Polly’s music. The multi instrumentalist duo of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse started their band in Oklahoma in 2009. They recorded their debut album Taking Over The World in 2010 and achieved instant acclaim from underground music icons like X’s Exene Cervenka (who produced 2013’s Lost Wonderfuls) and Beat Happening’s Calvin Johnson (who produced 2014’s Fuzz Steliacoom.) After the release of 2016’s The Big Fit, Veruca Salt’s co-frontwomen Louise Post and Nina Gordon reached out and said they wanted to write with the band. What started as a writing session ultimately became 2017’s New Trick EP. Armed with a third member—Kelli’s brother Kurtis Mayo—the trio released their latest full length, The Make It All Show in 2018 and two singles, Play House and Flyer, in 2019.   The female-driven alternative acts that inspired the band such as Veruca Salt, X, The Breeders, L7 and Babes In Toyland (the later of whom Skating Polly toured with in Europe) aren’t typical reference points for most of today’s up-and-coming bands, but maybe they should be. “The thing that we identify with in a lot of those bands is that they can be really aggressive and loud while also being super melodic,” Kelli explains, adding that the new dynamic in the band helped them be more expansive when it came to their sound and arrangements. “Everything happened very smoothly when Kurtis became part of the band. It just felt natural having him there and writing with him.” In typical Skating Polly fashion, the trio will still be switching instruments live, something that’s become a hallmark of their performances and one that opens up more possibilities with the additional instrumentation on The Make It All Show.    Skating Polly really need to be seen in a club to fully grasp what makes them so special. “It can get pretty chaotic when we’re playing. People have said it feels like it could fall apart at any moment but in a good way,” Bighorse says with a laugh. “We try to make our music honest and engaging and I think that’s what drew us to people like Nina and Louise or Exene; you can probably guess a lot of the acts that we love, but we’re able to keep making music that always sounds like us,” Mayo explains. “We really try to make the songs the focus instead of trying to flaunt technical musical abilities,” adds Bighorse – and that honesty and optimism is why everyone from legendary musical figures as well as hardcore fans have gravitated toward Skating Polly’s music. The Make It All Show is the most fully realized work by Skating Polly yet and hints at an even brighter future for one of rock’s most promising acts.

Tinder Live, Lane Moore

$20 advance, $25 day of show! 21+ welcome! Get yer tickets online or at the bar!https://www.facebook.com/LaneMooreOfficialTinder Live has been named one of the best comedy shows in NYC for good reason. Produced and hosted by NYC based comedian, Lane Moore (The Onion, Brooklyn Magazine’s “50 Funniest People In Brooklyn,” former Cosmopolitan Magazine sex & relationships editor, and author of #1 bestseller, How To Be Alone: If You Want To And Even If You Don’t, praised as one of the best books of the year by The New York Times, New York Magazine, NPR, Fast Company, Marie Claire, and many others), Tinder Live is a totally improvised, anything-can-happen interactive comedy showstopper with helpful and oftentimes ridiculous Tinder tips, tricks, real-time swiping, and messaging (and sometimes even real-time phone calls with Tinder matches)! You’ll relate to Moore’s live-swiping and laugh at her reactions and find inspiration in her ridiculous, random emoji-filled messages (and sometimes even phone calls!) to would-be suitors. It’s also a great show to attend with a date, Tinder or otherwise.But don’t expect cheap shots…this show has a huge heart. In between laughs, Lane reminds us how challenging it can be to find a match in the digital age. Even if you’ve never been on an online dating site, you will love this show.”Tinder LIVE! is truly addictive entertainment…[it’s] ingenious. Moore transforms the banter on a dating app into compelling long-form improvisation. Ms. Moore, a cagey and humane performer, has developed an instinct for turning the raw materials of sexually charged chat with ordinary strangers into honed and generous jokes. “TinderLive” has a comic momentum and energy that is unusual. The way she manipulates tone and pace reveals an artist supremely confident in her form, not to mention a flirt par excellence.” — The New York Times.The New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Out NewY ork, and Village Voice, have listed the show as one of the best comedy shows in NYC. Brightest Young Things called it “the greatest show on earth,“ and CBS called it one of the Best Comedy Shows in NYC, saying, “Moore’s commentary will make you cry laughing as she randomly sends texts messages to those that peak her interest. It’s seriously funny.”The show has also been praised as one of the best comedy shows out there by The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, Fast Company, VICE, The Atlantic, Vulture, Hello Giggles, Gothamist, Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung, Brooklyn Paper, Bustle, Metro UK, Paper Magazine, NewYork Observer, Flavorpill, Brokelyn, Brightest Young Things, Brokelyn, Brooklyn Magazine, and Brooklyn Vegan.twitter/IG: @hellolanemoore.
