Sack wsg Flamingo Nosebleed and tba

SACK is an enigmatic group of Denver ass-kickers that (as far as we can tell) is Kody Lillington and some shredders from Peru. There's been band members named Squiggy, Skeeter, Joe Camel, Coach, and Rad Biker. No one knows what's *actually* going on with these party punks, but SACK claims their new record is called "Ripper!" and it'll be out this Summer on Red Scare.

Defiled 5th Anniversary
ft. Finite Automata and Unitcode:Machine

CONSUMER:DOGMA tour touring acts:
-Finite Automata [Atlanta, GA]
-Unitcode:Machine [Dallas, TX]
Local support:

DJ sets by Defiled DJs Remnant and Wraith

Finite Automata is known for their highly confrontational and controversial stage shows, which make heavy use of theatrics, makeup, stage props, sharp objects and various noise making devices.

UNITCODE:MACHINE is a project from Texas Native Eric Kristoffer. Following in the steps of other Texas electronic artists, Eric's style of electro-industrial takes from many inspirations to create a sound unique to the project. Ever changing, UNITCODE:MACHINE's list of comparable projects changes from album to album.
$10 limited tickets available at Small's

All Ages Welcome.

Tickets: $30 in Advance / $35 Day of Show

TICKETS:www.eventbrite.com/

Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum is a trio comprised of vocalist, lyricist, musician and Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie), and drummer Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood). A theatrical sensibility is part of the trio’s DNA, especially in live shows, having met several years ago on Broadway during the production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum eschews traditional rock instrumentation in favor of a stripped-down synthesizer-and-drum attack, heard on their debut full-length album THANKS FOR COMING (released February 2021), which follows their 2020 self-titled EP. Both have drawn praise from Paper, Alternative Press, Associated Press, Consequence of Sound, People, American Songwriter, Magnet, FLOOD, Forbes, HuffingtonmPost, NME, Line of Best Fit, The Independent, Entertainment Tonight and more. A wealth of disparate influences flow into Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum’s songs – the glam, experimental, ambient music of David Bowie, Giorgio Moroder’s ‘70s disco productions for Donna Summer, ‘80s new wave dance music, contemporary electronic dance acts like Justice, and the roster of France’s Ed Banger label.
