Charlie Hunter & Lucy Woodward — Music!Music!Music!
An exhilarating blast of blues, soul and funk, Music!Music!Music! marks the recorded debut of the musical partnership between guitarist Charlie Hunter and vocalist Lucy Woodward.
The duo first performed together in January 2018, when Woodward — fresh off supporting her fourth solo album, 2016’s Til They Bang on the Door — joined forces with Hunter as a lastminute fill-in on a tour he’d originally booked with Mexican singer-songwriter Silvana Estrada (whose visa application had been denied by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security).
Bonded by their shared love of blues, Hunter and Woodward quickly constructed a setlist of favorite songs and hit the road. Within less than a week of playing shows together, they realized that they’d hit upon something very special, indeed. Recorded in November 2018 at Stephen Lee Price’s studio in High Point, NC, with longtime
Hunter collaborator Derrek Phillips on the drums, Music!Music!Music! features eleven radically reworked covers of songs by artists ranging from Blind Willie Johnson and Bessie Smith to Nina Simone and Terence Trent D’Arby. Soulful, spacious and deliciously in the pocket, Music!Music!Music! showcases the dazzling interplay between Hunter’s funky guitar and
Woodward’s powerful voice, while also reflecting the spontaneity and good vibes of the duo’s live performances.
Hunter and Woodward will return to the road this spring to take Music!Music!Music! to the people. The tour for the album will stretch over much of 2019, with the duo going to Europe
and Japan as well as all over North America.

The Schizophonics (San Diego) + BAR DKDC

Oct 27, 9:00pm - Oct 28, 12:00am

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

Over the last few years, THE SCHIZOPHONICS have built up a formidable reputation around the world as an explosive live act. Tapping into the same unstoppable combination of rock 'n' roll energy and showmanship that fueled THE MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom, their wild live show is heavily influenced by artists like JAMES BROWN, IGGY POP, JIMI HENDRIX, LITTLE RICHARD, and THE SONICS. Singer/guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers formed the band in San Diego in 2009 and have worked tirelessly since then, playing hundreds of shows around the globe and winning 7 San Diego music awards. In 2013 they were recruited as the backing/opening band for EL VEZ, which helped the band make a name for itself in Europe. Since then, they've played in fourteen countries, and supported tours by like-minded acts like ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT, LITTLE BARRIE, and THE WOGGLES and have opened for the DAMNED, HIVES and CAGE THE ELEPHANT. Shindig magazine described their live show "Like watching some insane hybrid of WAYNE KRAMER, JAMES BROWN, and the Tazmanian Devil". “One of my favorite live bands ever!” proclaims Tim Mays, who has run the Casbah in San Diego for 30 years and has seen literally thousands of live bands come through his doors. “The Schizophonics bring the goods every time they play,” he enthuses.

The band is more than just an outstanding live act, they’re also committed to writing great, memorable songs. After releasing 2 singles and an EP over the last few years on Munster, Ugly Things, and Pig Baby Records, they put out their first full-length album in July 2017 titled Land Of The Living on the label Sympathy For The Record Industry with famed record man Long Gone John. In January of 2019 they started work on their 2nd LP recruiting Dave Gardner (Hot Snakes, RFTC) mixing engineer Stephen Kaye ( JD McPherson, Mike Krol) and Pierre De Reeder (Rilo Kiley) to put their live, raw sound to tape. The album titled People in the Sky will be released on October 31st, 2019 on Pig Baby Records.

Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realized he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, lilting enchantment, squalls of feedback, dissonance, bizarre stories and backchat.
Eric began his recording life on Stiff Records in 1977 with his enduring hit Whole Wide World when he was little more than an ex-teenage art student. Eventually he sidestepped the mechanics of stardom to become Britain’s biggest underground household name, much loved and often underestimated.
He shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesn’t do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album ‘amERICa’ reminded those who’ve kept the faith and new generations of fans what he’s all about.
“Many artists of Wreckless Eric’s era and tradition have imitators, but few of yesteryear’s outliers can catch up with their descendants, let alone best them. amERICa is that rare record.” Pitchfork
He won’t recreate 1978 for you, he’ll blow your mind instead.
Forty two years of touring and recording have left Eric in good shape and his brand new album Construction Time & Demolition does exactly what the title suggests.
He’s coming to town.

Bill Direen (New Zealand) + BAR DKDC

Bill Direen (New Zealand) + BAR DKDC

Nov 16, 10:30pm - Nov 17, 1:30am

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

A longstanding cult figure of the New Zealand music scene, singer/songwriter Bill Direen was born in Christchurch in 1957; receiving his first guitar at the age of 15, he made his first public appearances at area open-mike folk showcases. After dropping out of college, Direen accepted a factory job; inspired by the music of the Velvet Underground and the 13th Floor Elevators, he soon bought an electric guitar, and with bassist Stephen Cogle, drummer Peter Stephenson, and violinist Theresa McGuire formed the Vacuum. In 1980, Cogle and Stapleton exited to form the Pin Group; the Vacuum briefly changed their name to Kaza Portico, but in early 1981, Direen quit to join the short-lived Six Impossible Things. He soon founded an avant-garde theatrical troupe dubbed the Soluble Fish Ensemble, and with group members Alan Meek and Malcolm Grant also formed a band, the Builders.

Amidst this flurry of activity Direen found time to mount yet a third project, a band named the Urbs; after winning a battle-of-the-bands competition, the Urbs were awarded studio time at the Auckland 3ZM Studios, recording a 1983 LP titled Beatin' Hearts, which, for reasons unknown, was issued under the Builders' name. Direen soon recorded a solo EP, High Thirties Piano, and in late 1982 also issued a Soluble Fish effort titled Dance of Death. Yet another band, Above Ground, released the cassette Gone Aiwa in 1983; that same year Direen and his wife Carol announced a new theatrical venture, Blue Moon. Another Direen solo effort, Split Seconds, preceded the 1985 formation of a new Builders lineup including bassist Greg Bainbridge and drummer Stuart Page; CoNCH3, a solo release on Flying Nun, followed. Beginning in 1986, Direen recorded another LP, Let's Play, as well as a succession of EPs, beginning with Cup and continuing with Life Behind Bars and The Coolest Cats in the World; he then spent the next several years out of the limelight, resurfacing only in 1994 with Cup.

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.
