New shows at Old Rock House

Elizabeth & the Catapult
Wednesday, May 18
Doors 7pm Show 8pm
$10 Flat All Ages $2 Minor Surcharge
Take a clear and powerful voice, add a memorable melody and set it to unique, sophisticated harmonies, and what emerges is Elizabeth and the Catapult’s singular sound. At a time when so much music is saturated with familiarity, the band’s style, which Northeast Performer describes as “a mixture of organic jazz, rock and pop,”is a welcome departure from a well-beaten bath.

The Growlers
Wednesday, May 25
Doors 7pm Show 8pm
$8 Advance $10 Day of Show
All Ages $2 Minor Surcharge
The growlers are a rock and pop group formed in long beach California in 2006 who are yet to became one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. During their years of stardom yet to come, the band consists of Brooks Nielson (vocals) Scott Montoya(bass guitar, vocals,), Matt Taylor(lead guitar, vocals) and Brian “don’t surf” Stewart (drums, vocals). Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1960s rock and roll and skiffle, the group works with different musical genres, ranging from ice flossing hip hop to psychedelic rock.

Little Feat
Thursday, May 26
Doors 7pm Show 9pm
$35 Flat Over 21 Only
Truth is, there really is no story’s end yet, and Little Feat have indeed led a storied life ever since they formed in 1969. From then on, their unconventional signature of earthy, organic appeal and polished, first-rate musicianship wrapped around eclectic and memorable songs--clearly delivered as an authentic labor of love--has been a lasting fixture on the musical landscape. As American as apple pie--and rock ‘n roll itself--Feat’s music transcends boundaries, a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk-boogie. In the mix as well are strains of folk, blues, rockabilly, country and jazz, inventing a hybrid sound that is truly Little Feat’s own.

Nashville Pussy & The Dwarves
Sunday, August 14
Doors 7pm Show 8pm
$15 Flat Over 21 Only
True rock n' roll doesn't require definition. It's self-explanatory based on a gut feeling and the unconditional devotion to the musical genre. Nashville Pussy have celebrated their brand of genuine rock n' roll for more than a decade, in classic style at times, surprising at others, but always earthy, raw and unadulterated. Band mastermind Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar), his wife Ruyter Suys (guitar), Karen Cuda (bass) and Jeremy Thompson (drums) poured their heart and soul into the latest rock release, entitled From Hell To Texas.
Punk rock legends the Dwarves remain one of the most bizarre and misunderstood bands of all time. Their latest cd “The Dwarves Must Die” (GREEDY/Sympathy) redefines the limits of the rock album, touching every genre and style from hardcore and pop punk to garage and surf, hip/hop, death metal, noise and beyond. Their new dvd “FEFU” (GREEDY/MVD) features the Suicide Girls and traces the Dwarves long and twisted ride through the dark world of underground music.
