Sleep Fleet Celebrates Release of New EP

Image So far the new year in Dayton has brought great music around town for us all to enjoy!  This weekend is no exception!

On Saturday, February 1st, Sleep Fleet returns to Dayton after six months – a time far too long for music fans.  The Sleep Fleeters are releasing their brand shiny and new EP, Hudson & High, at a show at Blind Bob’s in our fine city.  The album courtesy of the fine folks at Brain Candy Records is available at the band’s bandcamp page and is not to be missed.

Brat CurseSleep Fleet is joined by the dynamic new trio Brat Curse! Their new self-titled record is another great new release for 2014!  These ex-Pharohs musicians play a pop-tinged punk that is a reminder of the excitement of the D-I-Y and post-punk movements before alternative became commercial!

Dear fawn LogoDayton’s own Dear Fawn will be playing their first set with their all new five-person line up!   You can hear some of Dear Fawn’s fine songs from their terrific CD, I Played the Queen on the band’s Soundcloud page!  This is another new band that promises to be another great addition to our music scene.

Sometimes being a real Dr. can be cool

ImageThe coolest part of the UD Self, Community, and Society in the 21st Century Living and Learning Community this year…

From discussions on religion and social media, the C21 LLC turned our attention to entertainment, music, identity, and techniques of the use of social media in our community. On Tuesday, October 29th from 6:30-8:30pm the members of C21 met with local Dayton musicians in the Science Center Auditorium. What is Dayton music like? How do local musicians share information about their music, concerts, and other events? We learned that the independent music scene in the Miami valley is not only incredibly diverse and active but that they use social media and traditional media to share information with the larger community.

Speakers included:
Burris Dixon, Me & Mountains, Swim Diver
Tom Gilliam, The Rebel Set, TCB Hit Squad
Andy Ingram, Kris N., Poptek Records
M. Ross Perkins, Goodbye, Esther Caulfield Orchestra
Liz Rasmussen, Good English
Tifani Tanaka, Dear Fawn
Tod Weidner, Motel Beds, Shrug
