Brian Conner (aka King Weekend, Bricon) is a CTIndie contributor and Western Connecticut hero. He has been a bunch of bands (White Mountain, Guilty Faces, Debachery) and knows pretty much everyone in this part of the state. Brian Connor Convention (or BriCon for short) is a quasi-yearly show put on by Brian Connor featuring friends bands. This BriCon will be the last in CT for some time (possibly ever) as Brian is moving to Texas to fulfill his destiny.

THE 2012 WHALIE AWARDS ceremony is happening in New London on Saturday! An immense event with so many performances!
Berlin's The Gentle Stunts are a band who I can completely identify with. Their new LP "Life-Size Deadbeats" doesn't beat around the bush. It gets right down to business with lean, beautifully recorded pop gems and rapid fires them straight into your brain.

Born as a basement recording project in the year 2000, Saturday Looks Good To Me brought together the jubilant fun of Motown and Northern soul with a decidedly indie approach. Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas poured generations of influences ranging from as widely as the Beach Boys to Guided by Voices into dusty pocket symphonies recorded on four track cassettes.

Calgary-based Mares Of Thrace are a wicked noise/doom duo that turns it up and kicks it out on a regular basis. What may you say they turn up and kick out? Well, they turn up their amps and then kick out a loud noisy sound that wouldn't be too out of place on the Amphetamine Reptile label in the mid-1990's. Guitarist vocalist Therese Lanz along with co-conspirator, drummer Stefani MacKichan, have been turning heads and blowing speakers since the release of their debut record, "The Moulting" on the Sonic Unyon Metal label in 2010.

Mark Sultan, also known as BBQ, through his association with King Khan, is a garage rock jack of all trades. For better part of his adult life, in a myriad of bands (The Spaceshits, Los Sexareenos, The Almighty Defenders, to name a few) and as a solo performer, he has been cranking out quality primitive rock n roll. Taking inspiration from the punk/hardcore DIY ethos of going out there and doing your own thing on your own terms, he has been applying this way of doing what you love to a more raw and soulful type of music.

So, remember that awesome record store documentary that came out a few years ago? The one featuring the late and legendary Trash American Style and how the local record store is really becoming a rare thing these days. :( Well if you have not seen it, or even if you have, come down to Willimantic Records on Sunday May 6th at 5pm, they will be having a screening of "I need that Record!". We all might tear up a little bit... But have no fear, Malcolm and his blue guitar will be there playing some great music. Be there.
