Help Woolen Mills Bar Host Music Sept 11 @ 6 pm

ATTN: Music Lovers, if you want to celebrate musical diversity in Charlottesville and witness our citizenry help maintain our status as a culturally relavent VA hub, join us in City Council Chambers and show your support for Black Market Moto Saloon at 6PM TODAY. The issue of whether or not the great new Woolen Mills Restaurant / Pub can add Live Music to it’s offerings is being revisited in the Council Chambers. For whatever reason a few months back, BMMS declined to file for a $1500 Special Use Permit and had to cease hosting live music, some of which were our very own Magnus Music Events. Since that time, they’ve paid for the permit, reached out to their  neighbors and installed additional sound reinforcement to further minimize their “sonic impact”. They’re definitely being proactive — not to mention, they’re easy to work with and perhaps most importantly, their very existence allows for musicians and music lovers a chance to mingle in a whole other part of town. Diversity!

AMEN DUNES SEPT. 7 @ TEA BAZAAR

Posted in Magnus Music Presents, Previous Show Blogs, Tea Bazaar with tags , , , on September 7, 2012 by jeyon

Amen Dunes was the buzz band back in February when they opened up for This Will Destroy you at The Southern. The crowd very much dug their droony mysterium. Apparently what we heard was born from improvised recordings made while guitarist Damon McMahon (shown here) was living as an ex-pat in China, his environment very integral to this catchy eerie sound. Between the repetitive rhythms and Damon’s trembling voice, it was as if Syd Barrett were fronting the Velvet Undergound. After their set finished, people walked to the bar going “WHOA that was intense!” Indeed. Tonight Amen Dunes returns to headlines their own gig at Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar. Locals Gold Spur and Loom open the night.

JULIA HOLTER SEPT. 4 @ TEA BAZAAR

Posted in Magnus Music Presents, Previous Show Blogs, Tea Bazaar with tags , , , , on September 4, 2012 by jeyon

We’re very excited about tonight. All the way from LA, the amazing Julia Holter brings her trio to the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar. Julia’s ethereal and unorthodox form of song-writing blurs the line between indie rock, modern composition, and electronic music and puts her in a league with acts like St. Vincent. A graduate of Music Composition at Cal Arts an often collaborator with fellow Californians Nite Jewel, Julia composes most of her haunting, childlike and futuristic songs in her bedroom, then brings them to life rather magically via keyboard with only the help of cellist and drummer. Tonight’s performance features touring act Hundred Waters and locals Nettles (who rarely play live) opening the gig. This promises to be an unforgettable night of tunes.

Amazing thing about VCU’s arts program is how it churns out incredible musicians year-after-year. And it’s not necessarily just limited to it’s Music Majors either. English Majors write song lyrics. Sculptors shape tones on the bass. Film Majors eschew Final Cut for Logic. All these young artists explore different mediums, join up and put together all sorts of (pardon us) “winning!” combinations. Which is exactly what we’ve got tonight at the Tea Bazaar: Winning combinations, and not just within each individual band but regarding the line-up as a whole.

Canary Oh Canary (instagr.am by Shannon Cleary)

Headlining the evening is CANARY OH CANARY who (like Richmond act Dead Fame we had last month) are spearheading a growingly popular shoegaze / darkwave movement. Fans of The Jesus And The Mary Chain will certainly dig COC. Before them comes up relatively new act FIRE BISON, Dischord Records-style post-punk with dual female vocalists a la Sleater-Kinney garnering heaps of praise for their live sets. But opening the whole night around 9 pm is an experimental avant garde act a lot of CVille (especially our touring musicians) are already familiar with: BERMUDA TRIANGLES. BT are about as close to the Butthole Surfers I think Richmond has gotten in a while; equal parts weird cult, equal parts rowdy, driven by percussion and psychedlic insight.

FRI. NOV. 18th – CANARY OH CANARY w/ BERMUDA TRIANGLES and FIRE BISON at TEA BAZAAR, 414 E Main St, ALL AGES, $5, 8 pm doors, 434-293-9947Genre: Indie / Rock / Experimental
