Alicja-Pop & Cat Casual (KY) + Bar DKDC

Alicja-Pop & Cat Casual (KY) + Bar DKDC

Mar 8, 9:00pm - Mar 9, 12:00am

BAR DKDC964 South Cooper in the Cooper Young HoodMemphis, TN38104 Map

Alicja Trout’s current project Alicja Pop is one not to miss. A songwriter and musician hailing from Memphis, she’s been a driving force in several indie bands in Memphis over the past 25 years, including the Lost Sounds, the Clears, River City Tanlines and Mouserocket.

At its most rambunctious, it's sweet and hook-heavy garage punk; sparkling pop melodies over lo-fi programming.
But many of these tracks are more subdued - pleasant synth pop with enough post-punk grit to keep it falling into that mind-numbing twee hole that so often swallows bedroom recordings. Not that I'm coming into this with any kind of personal bias.
The songs and performances are fully formed, "home recording" or not, and Alicja's buoyant songwriting really drives this. This is party music for a very chill grown-up party.
I can get behind that." - Razorcake

William Benton aka Cat Casual is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who has supplied guitar and bass for artists like Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Shilpa Ray (Nick Cave’s Bad Seed Ltd. label), The Phantom Family Halo (Knitting Factory Records), Ivan Julian (Richard Hell and the Voidoids)- and has collaborated with legendary musicians such as Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Steve Shelley(Sonic Youth), Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple)...among others.
He has also supplied music for television (including Jersey Shore), short films, and off-off Broadway productions.
The first Cat Casual release (Cat Casual and the Holy Midnight), smashed open the rusty gates, releasing Benton's psyche-inspired, cinematic, troubadour-ish persona upon the world. (The record opens with Sending- “...a collaboration with Bonnie "Prince" Billy that sounds like Suicide, Grinderman, and a chain gang produced something unholy in a musical laboratory...”)

The Final Word- the most recent backing band that he has assembled- is fearlessly executing reinterpretations of previous Cat Casual songs as well as delivering the latest material: some of the most interesting, heady, unpredictable-yet-accessible music that Louisville and Benton himself have ever produced.

Mar 15, 8:00pm - Mar 15, 11:00pm

BAR DKDC964 South Cooper in the Cooper Young HoodMemphis, TN38104 Map

Danny B Harvey & Paul-Ronney Angel
Two underground Rock'n'Rollers tour together for the first time!!

Danny B Harvey is a US rockabilly guitar legend and is known for his work with Headcat (along with Lemmy and the Stray Cats' Slim Jim Phantom) as well as his work with The Rockats, Nancy Sinatra and regularly perfoms with his wife Annie Marie Lewis, niece of the 'Killer' himself, Mr Jerry Lee Lewis. When Danny B straps his guitar on the world generally listens and their jaws drop - unless they are tone deaf and stupid of course!

Paul-Ronney Angel was born in Norway, but felt the calling of slaying fish the cold wasn't for him so he escaped to London and started The Urban Voodoo Machine - the worlds only Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop'n'Stroll Orchestra that he is the lead singer, songwriter and band leader for. He runs his own club night and record label called Gypsy Hotel because he feels someone has to bring decent culture to the world!
He is also the musical director for UK's number one magazine Vive Le Rock and their house band, The Vive Le Rockers who have backed the likes of Suzi Quatro, Shakin' Stevens, Steve Diggle from the Buzzcocksand Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock.


Danny B Harvey & Paul-Ronney Angel will play BOTH types of music for your aural pleasure all night:
Country AND Western
Rock AND Roll
Spaghetti AND Soundtrack
Rhythm AND Blues

Don't miss these shows!!

Sun 15 March - MEMPHIS

Wed 11 March - AUSTIN
Fri 13 March - SAN ANTONIO
Sat 14 March - NEW ORLEANS

Rev. Neil Down Madjack Album Release + Bar DKDC

Mar 27, 8:00pm - Mar 27, 11:00pm

BAR DKDC964 South Cooper in the Cooper Young HoodMemphis, TN38104 Map

Madjack Records is proud to join Rev Neil Down in the celebration of his new release “Every Block Needs an Alley”. Rev is a very well known character in the ongoing story of Memphis music. For many years he toured the country as a partner in the Memphis based duo Deering & Down. Rev and Lahna Deering released multiple recordings during their collaboration and all enjoyed critical acclaim. Additionally, Rev has released four solo albums culminating with “Every Block Needs an Alley”. The album was co-produced by Memphis’ own James Cunningham and features some of Memphis’s finest musical talent. To describe Rev and and his music, perhaps it is best to turn to his friend, artist / photographer / writer and all around Memphis music supporter Silver Michaels.

Rev is “a natural born wanderer, both in body and in mind, one of those guys always wondering what’s around the next corner or what adventures the new day might bring.

“Some people wander from the comfort of their easy chair, some actually take it to the highway; either method is equally acceptable. Rev Neil Down seemingly does both. I honestly don’t know what he’s searching for (and I suspect he doesn’t either), but he’s chronicled his adventures admirably throughout his career, and this album is no exception. I love this record because the melodies are memorable and the lyrics make me laugh and think and take me to places I’ve yet to see. I love this record because it’s so easy to call forth Keith and Neil and Otis and Conway and a host of others. I love this record because I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since the first time I heard it.
And I love this record because Rev’s got soul.”

Memphis soul!

Please join Madjack Records and Rev Neil Down on Friday, March 27th at Bar DKDC in Cooper Young for a celebration of Rev’s latest release. The music is already available on all the usual download and streaming platforms. CDs will be available for purchase on the night of the show. Rev and the band are looking forward to seeing you!

ABOUT

DKDC

At BAR DKDC, we’ve paired Chef Karen Carrier’s eclectic tastes with the essence of local cuisines — international street food. The soul of the street, Our menu of small plates reads like an global backpacker’s food diary. Oaxacan Mexican to Shashlik from Israel. Spanish Tapas to the spices of the Caribbean. Plus, we change it up every five weeks. Relax in our intimate space with textiles from India, masks from Cuernavaca and Taxco, furnishings from our own Southern Delta, and music from all of the above.

Order a cocktail that matches the mood and travel with us.

It was a chance encounter in the restroom of a trendy New York City Bar. A struggling art student mentioned her love of cooking and lack of money. The other woman was a caterer in need of workers. The two exchanged names and Chef Karen Carrier never returned to graduate school. Instead she has enjoyed a varied career in food and has never regretted her decision to swap palette for palate.

Like all good southerners, she eventually returned home to Memphis in 1987 to start a family and plant the seeds for a restaurant empire.

KAREN CARRIER

Carrier launched Another Roadside Attraction Catering, the stunning revival of downtown Memphis with Automatic Slims Tonga Club (which she sold in 2008), The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Do Sushi, Noodle Doodle do, The Mollie Fontaine Lounge and her newest venture—Bar-DKDC Social Club.

Critics have applied descriptors like daring, exuberant, eclectic and risk-taking to her restaurant ventures – words that apply equally well to the fanciful fusion food, the funky décor and chef—owner Karen Carrier. Her ambitious cooking combines big Southern and international flavors—it’s what Food & Wine described as “in your face” cooking: imaginative, well-prepared, and full of surprises.
