Indie Thursdays @ TWO BOOTS w/ Philistines Jr., Fins, Paxatonia

Indie Thursdays at Two Boots in Bridgeport is gonna be kicking on 11/29 thanks to The Philistines Jr., Fins, and Paxatonia.

From the Facebook Event:

Indie Thursdays:


are brothers Peter & Tarquin Katis and drummer Adam Pierce. With a reputation as No-Fi home studio recording wizards, they have been recording and releasing their unique brand of experimental pop music since 1990...on their own TARQUIN RECORDS label (also on Dot Dot Dash and on LISSY’S and SHIVER in the U.K.). All their releases have charted on numerous college radio stations across North America and enjoyed frequent air play by dj John Peel on his BBC. Radio 1 program. Their 7" single (The Sci-Fi Song/Moon River) on LISSY’S was Single of the Week on the Steve LeMacq show on BBC 1 radio in June ‘95 and earned a spot on Britain’s Indie Charts. Upon hearing their first 12", John Peel telephoned the band “just to say how much he liked the record” and to invite them to record a Peel Session in London for the BBC. The PHILISTINES Jr. have since completed three Peel Sessions and U.K. tours.
Touring the U.S., they have played with such bands as MERCURY REV, YO LA TENGO, STEREOLAB, LUNA, CAKE, FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE, KING MISSILE and JONATHAN RICHMAN. The band pursues numerous side projects that include THE ZAMBONIS, THE HAPPIEST GUYS IN THE WORLD, JAMES KOCHALKA SUPERSTAR, and THE PORK GUYS. Long time drummer, Adam Pierce, is busy with MICE PARADE, THE DYLAN GROUP and THE SWIRLIES.

New Milford, CT’s Fins channels elements from the past in a way that keeps the music cutting-edge. The group’s distinctive style can only be considered other worldly. They’re noise punk with melody - blistering your ear drums as the group soars through sonic auroras. Fins have been generating scuzzy, moss pop in the rural sprawl of northwestern Connecticut since early 2012. Rejecting most social conventions the trio spend their nights hacking melodies from their dense, woodland surroundings. After touring in various noise-punk projects over the past five years, Fins are ready to take their searing snake rock sound straight to the moon… or where ever they crash land first.

Paxatonia (Ledyard, CT)
Having 2 years of practice and scattered live performances, we have built a solid repertoire of songs, including alternative and instrumental pieces. Think Incubus meets Phish. Although we have yet to record some of our work, we can organize an entertaining live setlist on a moments notice.
